    Can't get enough love for Zoltan. How about his 2nd punt that went somewhere around 50 yards (at least it seemd) AND went out of bounds. The coverage team had to love that

    Zoltan had a nice day. He got a lucky roll on one punt but was unlucky on another where an inside the 10 punt turned into a touchback. Over he past few years punter has been a weak spot for the Pats. Nice to see they have an average to above average punter now. (BTW, the Vikings punter was pretty good too I thought.)

    A lot of love for Mesko. Some have mentioned his inconsistencies, some poor kicks, what a waste of a draft pick he was, yadda yadda, but despite all that, he's 3rd in net punting average, with 7 punts inside the 20. Last year, Hansen finished 36th in net punting average, second-last among regular punters, and 7 punts inside the 20.

    And gotta give some credit to Ingram as well. He played well today and didn't have any problems snapping on a windy day.

    Everytime we punt out of or near our endzone I worry that Ingram is going to screw it up, he played well today though.

    That was on Ninko who couldn't hold on to the ball! He fumbled it out of the EZ.

    He's been great. I guess the other guy remembered how to hike the thing this week too, that helps.:D

    I have to admit, I wasn't thrilled that we used a 5th rd pick on a punter - but Zoltan is definitely proving his worth now. Love the Mesko!

    Me too. I keep telling myself he was great all last season, and drinking every time we have to punt. Not sure which helps more, but it helps.

    But the truth is the majority of the time, he's been solid. Lately, he's struggled a bit, and so it's natural to be concerned. But hopefully yesterday's game was a turning point in the season for him, the start to another great stretch.

    I'm def with you guys here. Ingram has been making me cringe when it comes time to snap it but he really showed up sunday. The emperor of space didn't have to reach at all.

    Why wear different boots I can understand why he has a soccer boot on his kicking foot but why not just wear 2 soccer boots?

    Not to take away from how awesome it I having the emperor of space punting for us.

    Shouldn't that have been a penalty???

    Or minimally incorrect use of helmet....

    It may have something to do with grip on his planting foot?

    I almost forgot what it was like to see a punt go for more than 30 yards. It is great to finally have a punter who can actually punt. Mesko was just another great pick from what is turning into a home run draft.
