    Punt away. Punt accurately and consistently, my friend. :clanram: Thanks, STL.

    May Turk be a slight improvement in ST, punter wise.

    MUST keep a healthy Turk! hone:

    From Miamifootball365, 10-09-05:

    Matt Turk’s days as a Miami Dolphin may have come to an end. The 37-year old punter was placed on injured reserve today. The Dolphins will likely reach an injury settlement that will make Turk a free agent. The team signed punter Donnie Jones off the practice squad to take Turk's place.

    Matt Turk is an 11-year veteran who started his career with the Washington Redskins. He punted for the Miami Dolphins in the 01’ and 02’ seasons, then after a one-year stint with the Jets, returned to the Dolphins for the 03’ and 04’ season.

    Turk will likely be picked up quickly because when healthy he is one of the most reliable punters in the NFL. Last year he average 41.7 yards per kick and had 29 punts downed inside the 20-yard line (tied for first in the AFC).

    I think that we should have resigned Bryan baker or whoever we had last season.

    As sad as it is, that was the main reason why I wanted to sign Baker. Hopefully the age of tackling Rams foot-men is past...LOL
