    P Mike Scifres 5yr extension w/Chargers worth over $18M, w/$9M guaranteed. That guarantee doesn't include his 2011 salary. Nice haul for him

    Best punter in the NFL! Dude gets visably angry when the ball doesn't bounce his way, I like it.

    Let’s just hope that he gets paid all that money, (which he deserves) and we only have to use him once a game.

    Gonna be nice to have 2 punters in 20+ years. Darren and SciFi handling Chargers Punts from 1995-2016 and beyond. Sounds pretty sweet to me. I still remember the Colts game and the 4 punts inside the 20. I have never seen a punter win a game before but he did that game. The look on Manning's face when SciFi dropped that one on the 2 was priceless.

    I think the impact of Peytie-Pie's jaw dropping on that one was the beginning of his neck issues. :p

    4 punts blocked and 1 deflected - NONE of which was his fault in the slightest. Money well spent, but NFL contract amounts never cease to amaze me these days. The mind boggles.

    Sci-Fi is the best punter in the league. Glad to hear he's getting paid like it.

    Scifres is the man, we had a guy with season tix in front of us with his jersey. Took awhile for the other fans to understand how he would get excited when he kicked:D

    Been lurking mostly. :sneaky:

    Need to make it to a game this season in SD. Since I should be working in Phoenix (with a small trip to Austin and then Albuquerque in between) for a bit I think I can make a drive out there later in the season. Gotta convince the wife to come with me too. She needs to experience a tailgater and live game instead of watching me scream and yell at the TV. :laugh:

    How goes it your way?

    Scifres is a great punter, that is not in doubt, if not the best there is , definitely one of but................ that is eye-popping money for the position imho. There are some guys playing rugby (or even gaelic football) over this way that would fall over if they knew that a guy is getting paid like this for kicking a ball. Don't get me wrong, I know there is 'kicking a ball' and Scifres punting a ball, just saying.........

    Dublin Bolt, perhaps on a different thread we should explain the All Ireland Final, our superbowl, and how 80k folk will pack a stadium to watch unpaid players.
