Also his stats started coming up late in the year with his best game at Philly earning him special player of the week with 4 of his kicks within the 10YL

I think the Bengals were smart to go after him.
Off lately? Besides his rookie year he's been pretty bad. 1 good season out of 4 puts you in the 'kinda sucks' category.

Re: Plackemeier waived

Lechler or Smith. Either one would give us some stability at that position.

Re: Plackemeier waived

While Smith is definatly an upgrade from Plack. I dont think we should jump on him without exploring the possibility of signing Lechler. 53 spoke of both punters bringing stability and they would. But if you look at the stats for the last 4 years, its obvious Lechler sets the standard for stability while Smith is good he is up and down. I added Plack in just to show contrast.

Rankings............2005........2006........2007.. .......2008
Lechler................2nd............2nd......... 1st...........2nd
Smith..................5th............10th........ 21st.........12th
Plack...................---............4th..........32nd.........28th

Smith had a great 08 season but he has consistantly declined from 05 to 07 with a good showing for 08

Where Lechler has been in the top 2 for the last four seasons. While I would welcome Smith, Im not sure I would jump on him to fast if there is a chance to land Lechler

Re: Plackemeier waived

But what if Smith is 2-3 million dollars cheaper?

He probably will be. Its just hard to watch a FA like Lechler slide if we could get him. But back to reality, yes Smith would be the logical choice as far as $$$ is concerned. If the best SS player is the main objective then Lechler.

I wonder sometimes if our only FA move was Lechler and did everything else in the draft how that would work. Then i remember we only have 4 picks so I would still welcome Smith. But will he continue to play at his 08 level? I guess any way you look at it we would be in better shape with Smith than Plack.

I think he would be the better choice, more bang for the buck.

Re: Plackemeier waived

If Hunter Smith would sign here for something close to league minimum, I'd rather have him then Lechler.

I think it was Danny Smith who said that there are about 6 good punters and the rest are pretty much interchangeable. In terms of dollars, paying top dollar for Lechler equates to paying back-up money to a tackle. Yet, a good punter will have a much bigger impact on the game.

Because punters are cheap to begin with, I would pay top dollar for Lechler. In the big picture, punter is the cheapest place to get a difference maker.

I strongly agree with you Joe. I believe most people underestimate the importance of a great kicking game. I would rather have a guy like Lechler who can consistently pin the opposing team deep in there own territory. Than say a Haynesworth who by himself can't do as much and cost a lot more $$$ When we played Philly the second game and Plack pinned them within there 10 YL four times it changed there offense they felt rushed and made mistakes. Plack won us that game IMO.
