Well he didn't come that cheap - about the same we are playing Slater.
I have a feeling that they aren't too worried about some former STer of theirs coming to town and helping his new team beat them.
Well special teams is the third unit of Football. Extremely important. If you want to pay Veteren min then you have a bunch of scrubs. If you want the upper echelon of that unit you must pay up. I am OK with that
I meant out of spite, not any fear of playing against a special teamer.
worth it. Best special teams player in football.
We pounced on him right away. This organization is always on its toes. Meanwhile, the Browns FO always punches out at 5pm, every weekday.
Lol ravens fans on Reddit calling it cheating. They cut the guy
Right now we are 14th in special teams DVOA. Bethel could help us get into the top 5. This will be huge.
Which is why I felt the Brandon King injury was so costly a few months ago.......
I totally agree. This was my previous comment in this post. 2 gunners are better than one. If you count Olszewski we have 3 good gunners
They will probably be punching out this Sunday at 5pm
......and as the weather conditions start declining with cold and wet situations......the Ghosts and Gobblins of opposing Special Teams nightmares increase.
Seriously, the timing of this move is beautiful and not well understood by the other 31. Special Teams become crucial in December/January conditions far more than September -October.
special teams isnt as sexy as offense/defense so people tend to ignore it. But it is an important part of the game. Especially when you have a defense as good as this one. If you can back up teams and they have to drive the length of the field against this defense it makes it much easier.
anyone remember the 2010 Chargers?
Field position, field position, field position.
The Patriots can simply cut the oxygen to opposing teams with their D and STs.....
I remember there was an SB Nation video about them recently. Interesting stuff but I think it also shows how unimportant yardage rankings are.
Until you mentioned his name just now, I had totally forgotten about that dude...hmmm...
Really? Better than Slater?
