Position Question

Postby MarylandFalcon1 » Mon Oct 17, 2005 1:32 pm

I have nothing against Peterson, and he has been perfect this season (although yesterday he got a second chance) but does the NFL require a team to carry a Punter and a Kicker? I am not saying that Koenen could do both jobs (although his 58 yarder makes me wonder), but IF there was a player who could both kick and punt could a team carry just one and supplement another position player?

Me thinks Koenen would probably spray field goal attempts all over the field. He'd be good firing one straight down the field but if their is any aiming required we could be in trouble.

I do believe the NFL requires a team to carry 1 kicker an 1 punter though. For some reason the kicker/punter position has never been interchangable. I guess it's that hard to drop a football and kick as well as aiming one from the right or left of the crossbar.
