    This is when you know the wait is too much and pre season is so close but so far away, posting a thread about a punter.

    But I am really curious.

    Just read packerreport.com and the day's notes. Other than a few fights and Crosby missing a bunch of field goals but making his mulligans, they talked about Masthay and his average was a little over 54 yards a punt with a 67 yard bomb. Bryant was 43.6 or something. I was just curious, but is this guy actually good enough to be the punter of the future? Looking at those numbers it does make one wonder, and honestly a 54 yard average is pretty decent even if it is camp. Pre season will tell alot.

    Any opinions?

    Just looking to start a conversation that isn't Favre, defense, or Harrell related. But personally I am excited to see him in the PS, it'd be nice to have stability and consistency on that end of the ST.

    Most definitely.

    Crosby still missing the mid-rangers huh? No surprise there. McCarthy still has faith though.

    I thought I read something after day 1 of TC that Masthay had incredible distance, but Bryant had better hang time and that they are looking for the hang time over the distance. I could have misread though. Anyway hang time > distance when punting though.

    yeah you want hang time unless your at your own 1yd line, then punt that bish 99yds lol. But Crosby is a good kicker, he was my fantasy kicker last yr and he gave me a bunch of pts, maybe cuz we could never get in the end zone so we always kicked and most our games came down to the last 2-4mins even secs. I have faith in crosby, pressure doesnt seem to bother him he just f*cks up kicks every now n then. reguardless who our punter is though in the future as long as they get the job done thats all that matters....right?!

    I too read this, can't remember where though. I think I read though that the reporter corrected themself and said that the hangtimes were only marginally different, but I guess that bit of difference could mean a lot.

    I thought all the punters yesterday looked very inconsistent.
