    Johnny Hekker Looking To Break Record

    In the midst of all the Quinn and draft talk, our P Johnny Hekker is looking to break a record as well. He has a 43.8 net average per punt and is challenging a single season NFL record (43.9 net).

    Hekker has been a great addition as an UDFA. Another great find by the Snead/Fisher regime.

    I think it's the directional precision and hangtime that got Hekker recognized, not just net average which reflects that accuracy and the much-improved coverage by STs in general. Donnie Jones had a big leg but he never managed the control that Hekker has.

    Once the offense becomes more efficient, ie fewer punts from deep in Ram territory, I could see that average dropping & JH still being a very effective weapon in controlling field position, one of the key,imo, hidden stats of NFL football.

    I'll be rooting for Hekker to get the record, along with Quinn to win the Deacon Jones award, and Stacy to get 1000 yards. Who says this is a meaningless game?

    I guess I'll root for the Shehawks to go down in flames as well.

    I think his youtube video actually helped a lot because it gave him some name recognition. The video is incredibly cool.

    ramming speed to all

    I can remember on more than one occasion that Hekker shank a punt. Not sure if it was this season or last.

    Re: Johnny Hekker Looking To Break Record

    A quick calculation on a spreadsheet:

    He will get 43.9 for the following:
    1 punt for Avg Net of 49.5 yards
    2 punts for Avg Net of 46.7 yards
    3 punts for his a current Avg Net of 46.1 yards
    4 punts for Avg Net of 45.3 yards
    5 punts for Avg Net of 45.1 yards
    6 punts for Avg Net of 44.1 yards

    So its doable, but hopefully he will achieve it with as few punts as possible.

    Like all NFL punters, Hekker shanks a punt now and then. It hasn't stopped him from leading the NFL in net average, or from having a chance to break the NFL record.

    You may have to recalculate, from what I've read, the record is 44.0, by Andy Lee in 2011.

    Darn, I just checked the NFL website and Highest Net Avg per record per Season isn't included.

    Redoing the spreadsheet:

    He will get 44.1 Avg Net for the following:
    1 punt for 60.6 yards
    2 punts for Avg Net of 52.4 yards
    3 punts for Avg Net of 50 yards
    4 punts for Avg Net of 48.2 yards
    5 punts for Avg Net of 47.5 yards
    6 punts for Avg Net of 46.9 yards

    It does seem like a hard record to find. The 44.0 by Lee was mentioned in an article by Bernie today, and listed by Wikipedia (for what that's worth).

    I just checked Andy Lees Wiki page and it says on there that he holds the record at 44.0. I assume it would have been changed if it was incorrect. But it IS wiki :P
