    Well probably the last thing most of you care about is the punter but I kinda got a keen interest in Ryan as he played here in Winnipeg last year setting the CFL record for punt average. He's got a huge leg and if he learns to get his hangtime I think he can make it in this league. Would be good to see the skinny white kid from Saskatchewan make it in the big time. I still wonder if the Pack will bring in a veteran to challenge him. After the family night game he did an interview here and admitted it was crazy to play a scrimmage for 60 000 people. He also couldn't believe he was in the same room as Brett Favre. Here's to a good punter and humble guy making it with the greatest franchise

    Isnt it Jon Ryan?

    Im not trying to be a jerk(you'd know) I was literally staring at the title going "now who the hell is John Ryan?"

    I like Ryan. Goes to show you dont need to trade up to get a decent punter(decent at best right now) in the 3rd round of a draft.

    I hope it works out for him, I dont see why it shouldnt. His release time should improve(id hope) at least a little.

    Yes... It is JON not John.

    But then, growing up in Canada I learned to spell "Check" "CHEQUE" as in "Write a cheque for $200.00"

    Honest mistake....

    I hope he cuts it in the NFL too.

    If TT doesn't bring someone else in to compete with him he's nuts.

    One advantage Ryan has is you know he'll be able to handle the weather in winter. It would be nice to have a backup plan though in case it doesn't work out

    Np... wasn't any big name, but I'm sure it sent a msg to Ryan that jus becausse he's the only P on the roster doesn't mean the job is his. Although I'm sure he knew that already.
