Pat O'Donnell for Pro Bowl?

Mon Sep 30, 2019 2:23 pm

This guy has been killing it. 45-yard net average (so so I heard) yesterday and one that landed inside the 10, backspun and downed around the 10. For a team like ours that plays defensive/field position games, it makes us even better.

Pro Bowl this year, unless he makes a significant fall off. You heard it here first.

Well, I think you're getting a little out over your skis, as good old 57 likes to say.
He's 9th in avg and 10th in net avg, which is no top 4.

But, for a guy who's been consistently below average and on my "nice to upgrade, if possible" list for 3-4 years running, it is a noteworthy turnaround that deserves some recognition.

I agree ... I think it is nice he has become a more stable contributor

plus, we must give credit to him as the holder on placekicks ... I know that doesn't enter into his punting stats for Pro Bowl consideration, but it definitely enters into the picture when looking at his overall value to the team

He's had a pretty great season so far. His 2018 season wasn't bad either.
