The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs A Punter

Posted on: March 14, 2008 10:21 am
 

Ok, here is the deal, every Friday I will post a new Blog in which we will choose the greatest player ever at a certain position. Until the next position is posted CBS members may vote for who they think the greatest ever is, at the end of the voting I will calculate every ones votes and will add that player to The Greatest Team Ever. I hope lots of you participate because I think this could be fun. I will try to post a running tally in a comment every day.

9th Position - Punter      Vote for the best Punter of all time!! Please post your vote in a comment, if you wish to give some insight on your choice feel free to do so. Please start your post with the players name, and please make sure that you are naming someone who played the position being voted for that week, as those are the only votes that will count..........So who our Tackles?

Please remember to rate this blog entry, and all comments as I appear to be losing value points for doing this blog, I happen to believe a lot of you enjoy it however, so I will continue even though I may be a rookie by the time it is over!

Since i have no clue who Ray Guy is (probably before my time) i will put my vote in for a more recent player and a very good punter himself.

No brainer, most feared punter of all time---Ray Guy--Raiders.  Always dropped them inside the 20, always seemed like he dropped them inside the 5 yd line.

I predict this one will be the widest margin of victory for the entire team.  I too vote for Ray Guy, but like you said this team will probably never need to punt.

The Greatest Of All Time Team Needs A Punter

"Slingin' Sammy" was the finest punter of his time, leading the NFL for four consecutive seasons from 1940-1943. His 45.1 career punting average is still the second best in NFL history. His single season punting average of 51.4, a record set in 1940, still stands.

so this is a home cooking pick cuz I am a redskins fan...but he set this record back in the day when the pigskin was not nearly as aerodynamic as todays version...more like kicking a cinderblock.....

my choice is for Slingin Sammy Baugh....
