History Suggests New Punter Here In 2012
Posted by nickeatman
When the Cowboys re-signed punter Mat McBriar to a contract extension in 2007, it was something rather new to this organization, especially since Jerry Jones took over nearly 20 years before.
The word “re-sign” just didn’t go in the same sentence with kicker and punter. The Cowboys’ philosophy had been to find young, cheap kickers – let guys like Steve Hoffman and Joe Avezzano groom them and when it was time for a new deal, they would let them walk and start over.
Happened with dozens of guys before. With Mat McBriar, it didn’t happen that way. The Cowboys didn’t want to find a new punter so they locked him up for five more years in a move that was clearly unheard of around here.
Well, now his contract is up once again. Do the Cowboys revert back to their old ways or do they keep using McBriar as an exception to their own rule?...
There's no right way to do the wrong thing.
To compete for the playoffs, Dallas has to improve here: Only four sacks against Eli Manning over the past six games!
