Re: Who will win the punter battle?

I want Brooks. Frost is an average NFL punter that we will be talking about replacing every offseason until we eventually do. Brooks has the chance to be more then that.

Re: Who will win the punter battle?

Either one that is let go will be available if the one that is kept gets the shanks...i'd rather go with youth at this point. The Skins used a pick on Brooks, let him keep the job.

Re: Who will win the punter battle?

I think Frost has out performed Brooks and if I thought this team had a really good chance to make a push for the SB I'd say stick with Frost. I think Brooks is going to be a better punter and I don't think it going to really matter this year I'm going with Brooks. I do think Frost will be with another team pretty quick if we cut him.

Re: Who will win the punter battle?

I voted Brooks because mainly I have a good feeling about the Redskins desire to keep him and cut Frost. Also think that Wade and Mason might get the boot to.

Re: Who will win the punter battle?

I'm glad Sir Shanksalot is gone. He's good for a 60 yarder punt immediately followed by two 30 yarders.. We know who he is, there are 15 Derrick Frosts out there so if for some reason Brooks is a bust we won't be in a worse position than where we are now.

Re: Who will win the punter battle?

Frostys farewell message to Dan, his Ex-Teammates & THE FANS. I wish the guy the best.

Frost Sends a Message

Punter Derrick Frost sent this email this evening to thank fans and the organization. He was cut from the team Saturday:

"I very much appreciate the opportunity to put in greater perspective
my comments in response to being released by the Redskins yesterday.
As much as I regret them, the quotes don't reflect my appreciation for
this area, my teammates, the world-class Redskins fans, or the unique
tradition the Redskins have built in this region over several
generations. It is an honor to have played for this organization and
before these great fans for over three years, and I can only hope for
a similar experience with my next team.

While I believe that I performed well enough to have earned the
punting job this preseason, the ultimate decision does not belong to
me. The fact of the matter is that playing for a professional sports
team is a privilege. Durrant Brooks is a fine young punter and I wish
him great success here in Washington. He is fortunate to team with
Ethan Albright and Shaun Suisham. I loved working with them, and look
forward to a continued friendship with them and their families.

It is joked that punters and kickers should rent, not buy. But my
wife, Sarah, and I have really fallen for this city. We are expecting
our first child in February, and want to raise our family here, no
matter where my next NFL opportunity takes me.

I am deeply grateful for the opportunity Mr. Snyder gave me here in my
favorite city. I regret that my performance here did not make the
Redskins want to extend my tenure.

I wish my Redskins teammates and fans all the best this year and down
the road."

Derrick Frost

He'll find a job in the near future. Another good decision by the team to move forward.

And, chances are, we'd probably end up with Derrick Frost again.

If he gets the Pack gig good for him, if it gets done that didn't take long for Frosty. Good for him.

Green Bay is expected to sign former Redskins punter Derrick Frost.


The NFL’s leading rusher in the preseason, Marcus Mason, is expected to sign with Baltimore’s practice squad.


There were 32 players claimed on waivers, proving that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

Frosty part of the Pack. That didn't take long.

PACKER BOOT RYAN
Posted by Mike Florio on September 1, 2008, 4:16 p.m.

The Green Bay Packers have announced that they’ve parted ways with punter Jon Ryan.

Ryan joined the team as an undrafted free agent in 2006. He went to college in Canada.

He generated an average of 44.5 yard per punt in two NFL seasons. His net average is 37.0.

Replacing Ryan is Derrick Frost, who spent the last three seasons with the Redskins. Before that, he punted for the Browns.

His career average is 41.1 yards, and his net and 36.4.

But Frost has done a better job of pinning opponents’ inside the 20 than Ryan. Over the last two years, Frost has done it 50 times in 156 punts. Ryan did it only 35 times in 135 punts.
