The Packers have contacted Sean Landetta just in case things do not go well.

I believe Barker is still out there.

There are some crossed fingers on the coaching staff and on fans worldwide. I do not know if they run any special teams during the Family Night Scrimmage but about that time you will see in practice and hear from coaches if Sander is cutting it.

3 draft picks for the kid puts a lot of pressure on him.

If Sander does not beat out Benekos for the job, he has to rank up there as one of the all-time worst Packer draft picks IMO.

Think of the holes this football team has and we used a third-rounder to pick up a punter that may lose the job to a street free agent. Sad, very, very sad. :(

Sander's gonna make it.

Of course...That's just my guess. :mrgreen:

It's all mental with BJ, hopefully he can step up, take the pressure head on...And focus it towards being a punter that warrents a 3rd rounder.

I think NFL Europe has given him the mental edge he needed to trust his skills.
Hopefully he's ready for the big dance this time.

I'm pulling for him...As I'm sure we all are.

I think the Packers will put no small weight on the punter being able to spot the ball on placekicks. While Nall can do it, he's no natural. Barker apparently was nearly as good as Pederson(according to Longwell) and Longwell was lobbying for Barker's return.

Sander has tried it, but again, is no natural.
