What's the matter? Steroids make you deaf?
The Patsies matched the Donks offer for the Bill Romanowski of punters, Todd Sauerdoughbrun. Good. I don't understand why they would want someone like that back. I mean, how many chances does a guy get to fuck up, especially when he's probably the least important player on a team? It's one thing to let someone repeatedly fuck up if he's a starting DB and KR like Pacman Jones or a decent skill position guy like Chris Henry or Ricky Williams, but it's a completely different thing if he's a goddamn punter.
I know Paul Ernster isn't the answer, he showed that last year. He was near the bottom of the league in nearly every meaningful stat. The thing is, we're talking about a punter, you can find them anywhere. Seriously, Ernster is from the legendary football program at Northern Arizona. An NFL punter doesn't even have to be from one of the 300+ colleges with football programs in this country, he could be a soccer player from Europe or South America, an Aussie Rules player from New Zealand, etc., etc.
Thery're punters and they're a dime a dozen. When one continually does stupid shit, the decision should be easy.
