    History Suggests New Punter Here In 2012

    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?...

    No kidding, the Ghost of Al Davis will probably draft him in the first round anyway

    Twelve years ago they picked a K and a P in the 1st and 5th rounds.

    Those two players have been their K and P for 12 straight years. The P is far and away the best in the league. The K ain't bad either.

    The kicker here and special teams are why we missed the playoffs bottom line.

    We should draft the kid from Cal in the 7th round or bring him in as an UDFA.

    Wow seriously?

    Some people blame the same thing regardless of what really happened. I hate Cowboys fans that say it is always the kicker's fault, or always the quarterback's fault. Doesn't matter who is playing that position, it is always their fault.

    Training camp kicking competitions are fun to watch from the stands during training camps.

    Lol wut? Bailey had a great rookie season this season. It's not his fault the line sucks and can't block for him or that he got iced by his own coach.

    How did McBriar get hurt? I'm sure it was posted but I don't remember seeing it.
