Can't agree more David.
Nothing wrong with wanting every area of our game to improve.


The Title is what David wants....not necessarily improved special teams.....the special teams could be the worst and he would be happy. He hated Locke for every year he was here for being drafted to replace Chris.


That's a complete lie. I supported Locke the whole way and predicted he would blossom once away from Priefer.


You conveniently don't remember your comments the first 2 years? ok Dave.


Complete lie. Why don't you go find one thing I ever said Mr. 'go find me a game special teams lost'. You won't find it because it isn't there. In the meantime you sir - are a liar.

In our loss to Detroit this season:
4th and 5 at DET 40
(8:57 - 1st) (Punt formation) R.Quigley punts 19 yards to DET 21, impetus ends at DET 21, Center-K.McDermott, out of bounds.
4th and 7 at MIN 47
(7:07 - 1st) (Punt formation) J.Locke punts 37 yards to MIN 10, Center-D.Muhlbach, fair catch by M.Sherels.
4th and 1 at MIN 36
(9:21 - 2nd) (Punt formation) R.Quigley punts 42 yards to DET 22, Center-K.McDermott, fair catch by G.Tate.
4th and 8 at DET 21
(0:50 - 3rd) K.Forbath 39 yard field goal is No Good, Hit Right Upright, Center-K.McDermott, Holder-R.Quigley.
4th and 9 at DET 41
(12:18 - 4th) (Punt formation) J.Locke punts 54 yards to MIN 5, Center-D.Muhlbach, downed by DET-J.Abbrederis.
4th and 15 at DET 9
(2:00 - 4th) (Punt formation) J.Locke punts 47 yards to MIN 44, Center-D.Muhlbach. M.Sherels to MIN 44 for no gain (J.Abbrederis).
Better special teams might have made the difference in this game. We lost by 7.

I'll go through every game in the last two years. Offhand I'm thinking about the game where we got our punt blocked deep in our own territory but can't remember who it was against. I'll find it. Now in every case there will be other things to blame a win or credit a win on. My purpose is simply to show where our special teams could - AND SHOULD - improve. Over the course of a season it might amount to just one or two games that could go from a loss to a win. But if that's your job - shouldn't you do it?


Losing Cook to ACL and 3 turnovers lost us that game---with the McKinnon turnover at midfield being the biggest but continue on.

I won't continue a discussion with someone who, when all else fails, resorts to lies about me. I'll still go through the games as it might be nice for everyone to get a good look at what our team does poorly (or what they do well - i.e. Patterson as a gunner) but this back and forth is gross.

So you like Kluwe as a cult and thought he was cool because he plays Warcraft? He sucked at punting as Locke did last year. He was in a tryout with Oakland never played one game.....

If Locke sucks he will get cut too....



Newsflash - Locke sucks. But I hope he turns it around but lucky for him you can rank 40 out of 41 and keep your job if you aren't in some cult of 'lovin dem queers'.

There are tons of them...I can't search past 2015 though Dave. Don't call me a liar. 2013-2014 you hated Locke and started changing your tune in 2015. This is just a sample.

Please stop Phil. That post doesn't show any hate towards Locke at all. You're embarrassing yourself.

I have to agree. The weirdness is now off the charts. Better let it cool down for a while...

I say we table it to the end of the season.
Revisit and review the 2017 body of work.
I mean, that's what the team is gonna do anyway.

The team reviews the tape and ignores the examples like David put up earlier apparently. He gets a pass year after year.

Then they must be happy with his performance.
Maybe everybody in the organization is all in on the methods.
Maybe they like minimizing returns and are willing to give up a few yards here or there to ensure it.
Because a big return can hurt you more than a couple of OOB kicks inside the 10 helps.
Just guessing.

Maybe he's one tiny f'up away from being dismissed.

At any rate - I'll still post rankings and play-by-plays but likely will not respond to any demands of 'proving' this or that or digging up games details from games two seasons ago. That's what seems to really make this thread gross.

Absolutely feasible as well.

Gonna be a good day when some team comes knocking looking to pilfer our Championship winning coaching staff.

Hope Priefer goes to a shit team I can hate on and is the losingest loser that ever lost.

And we're 20th in the league in our own average starting field position.

Punting from midfield a lot helps our ranking vs opponents.

Yep. Out of our 26 punts, 13 were punted from our own 40 or better. 6 were punted from opponent's territory. Only 3 were punted from inside our 20.

Would you rather we try another one of those fancy fake punts?

David has done his homework on this, that should be clear.

If you want to dispute the numbers, show your work. I think there is room there to make a fact-based argument against. Do it.

Maybe our Special Teams are good enough. Maybe Les Frazier was good enough. Hell, Gerhart was good enough. Rudolph is good enough. And, yes, plenty of people thought Ponder was good enough. There were even some wait and see people on Troy Williamson...after his first face mask catch attempt.

To be the best, you better be demanding the best out of your players and coaches. We've been chasing on that one too.

Striving for perfection is easy, there's no downside. I would like our players and coaches to expect perfection.

We're not going to win without learning and mastering this stuff.
