all this doesnt really matter to me anymore though, special teams on the skins is constantly undervalued to the point i cant even complain anymore.

- ARE stays as our punt returner year in year out (leads league in fair catches)
- suisham still has a job
- we cut frost (who was outplaying brooks in preseason) so vinny could say all his rookies made the roster
- our only decent ST player is rock who just catches the ball and runs straight ahead on kickoffs

imo good St play can be the difference in a few games changing a L to a W.

go skins!!
I miss Frost. He wasn't all that for a kicker but he sure did like to hit guys on kick offs.

We could bring him back to replace Thrash.


I hope Swish gets beat out...so sick of him missing chip shots, having no range and kicking off out-of-bounds.

You do realize, don't you, that GBay cut Frost to sign Brooks? And that Frost is not currently on any NFL roster (Brooks is still with GB)? When it came to punters, Frost was "just a guy" and, as it turns out, so was Brooks (and Plackemeir and ...).

Thank God for Hunter the Punter!

Can I get him as an avatar?

It would surprise me if they cut the young Pro Bowler Folk but stranger things have happened. I agree that I would suspend the anti-ex-Cowboys rule for Folk, who is quite capable.

I think it is more likely that the Cowboys will:
a) cut Buehler as a wasted draft pick
or
b) have Buehler suck up a roster spot simply to do kickoffs

Re: shaun suisham may be in trouble

Danny Smith makes it clear the kicking competition is wide open, and hangtime on kickoffs is considered one of the criterions for deciding the winner in an article by John Keim in the Washington Examiner today.
