Re: P Sav Rocca Signs with Redskins

I've been thinking that there must be some way for Danny to pull some strings (perhaps with $$) to expedite this visa.

Well, ya gotta wonder if the visa issue cropped up and Philly knew it would be trouble, so they didn't re-sign him. Odd that he worked for years over here and now he can't get a visa.

Re: P Sav Rocca Signs with Redskins

Sav Rocca should 'find an American wife', says Redskins coach.

Of course Shanahan was just joking because Rocca is a married man with two young sons.

You can't blame Shanahan for pulling out all the stops though. Given the current state of the teams offense, a punter could be the team's most valuable player.

There are currently three other Australian punters in the NFL. Ben Graham, Cardinals, Mat McBriar, Cowboys and Chris Bryan, NY Jets. Wonder if their visa status/s are less complicated.....do they (if married) have Australian or American wives?

Re: P Sav Rocca Signs with Redskins

I think McBriar's is probably less complicated. He's lived in the US since he came here with his parents before he went to college at Hawaii. He's probably been here long enough that he doesn't need one anymore. Plus I think he met his wife at Hawaii, so odds are she's a US resident so he doesn't need one.

Rocca is different, since he lived in Australia until he got a job playing for the Eagles 4 years ago.

Don't know about their wife situations. But as long as they keep their jobs they have no visa complications, wife or not. The problem with Rocca is that he became unemployed when he was cut, a condition which voids his work visa.

Our team MVP in Year 2 of Zorn WAS the punter. Threw and ran for a TD. Too bad he choked in the swinging gate though.

If this guy isn't willing to pass through the most dangerous parts of Mexico, hop on trains, scale the Rio Grande, and hitchhike to Ashburn, well suffice to say I don't want him here. Stay on your stupid Penal colony.

Re: P Sav Rocca Signs with Redskins

Looking at that clip...it's amazing how we put Yoder into motion to the right and he ended up being quadruple-covered as Hunter rolled to that side. No wonder Sellers was so wide open on the opposite side. The Broncos bit it like a carrot.

What a threat Yoder was.

Just choose our heaviest player and let him put his weight into punting.

I think that's Anthony Bryant at 360.
