Oh...that makes sense. It looked like Suisham had a false start before that kick...I was wondering what that was.

since two people both responded to something i never said, maybe i should clarify - frost sucks. he awesomely let a punt that hit him in the hands turn into a safety. it's like you're hanging five feet above the ground with a two foot stool below you and bitching about how you rather have the three foot stool that used to be there - you're screwed either way.

but i believe brooks will get better, and judging him by 2 punts versus the convenient memory of "good" frost without remembering sir shanks-a-lot is pretty silly.

that any more clear?

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

I heard this morning on the radio (cant remember what station or show) that Brooks might have made a some comment after Suisham miss, basically chastising him for missing it.

That's a stretch. Why would Brooks be upset with Suisham for missing a field goal?

Brooks had a good game punting the ball. Zorn was upset with Brooks because he called for the ball while the official was still over the ball before the ball was put into play.

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

I heard on 980 this afternoon that Brooks said he was 'scared' and 'fearful' of Zorn when he chewed him out. Give me a fricking break. Man up and take your ass chewing.

"I was shell-shocked a little bit," Brooks said. "I thought he was going to throw his headphones on me. He scared me. He matured me, how about that."

What a pussy...

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

what ever happened to backup QB's being holders? ie Theisman
They handle the ball every snap and shotgun snaps at that.

This would provide several benefits, one of them being the ability to jetison a crappy punter mid season if warranted

Not to mention having an option to do fakes...which would have been an option in this situation.

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

Saw an interview with Zorn on Redskins Nation last night.

They showed the chew-session and asked Zorn what happened with it. He smiled and said "I asked Brooks a question. He answered it wrong."

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

That's funny. I made out the words "never do that again you understand?". And then I made out "tomorrow!" At the end of it all when I re-watched the game yesterday. Assuming he's threatening to have his ass out of there or something.

How about some love for Durant Brooks? He punted the s*** out of it yesterday. Great hang time and distance. Too many others played well but Brooks had a good game.

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

He did a fine job. One lonnnnggg punt that really got us out of a hole at one point.

42+ net yardage on punts. Good punting, Good coverage.

Eagles sign Brooks to 2-year deal

Associated Press
PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia Eagles have signed punter Durant Brooks to a two-year contract, giving incumbent Sav Rocca competition.

Brooks, a sixth-round pick by Washington in 2008, played six games with the Redskins. He had a gross average of 39.6 yards on 26 punts. Brooks spent time on Green Bay's practice squad in '08 and was released by the Packers last preseason.

Brooks played two seasons at Georgia Tech and won the Ray Guy Award given to the top college punter in 2007.

Rocca has been Philadelphia's punter the last three seasons. He had a net average of 38.3 yards per punt last season.

What a forgettable draft pick. Never draft a punter....

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

Yeah sometimes you've got to stick with a guy for awhile. I think that if he gets the coaching he needs and just sticks it somewhere for a couple of years he'll be fine. Maybe no Feagles or Hunter the Punter, but who is?

Re: Durant Brooks Venting Thread

Good times in this thread. Fun to read this now.


I loved Zorn's answer (post #82)...forgot about that.
