    Until "Punts downed inside the 10 yard line" becomes a more visible stat than "Net Average" and "Hang Time", Mike will continue to get hosed. The guy sacrifices his average to pin opponents deep - another reason to love Sci-Fi.

    I wouldn't trade him for any other punter in the game, and he deserves the Pro Bowl without a doubt.

    Lechler has had two punts returned for TDs this year.:icon_shrug:

    No other punter in the game is as skillful as Scifres. Lechler can boom it, but he routinely outkicks his coverage. By the time the rest of his team catches up, they're sucking wind or it's a touch back.

    Sci-Fi is one reason we are headed to the playoffs. Damned skippy I wouldn't swap him for another punter. As far as Lechler kicks the ball, we might, in fact, have a couple less victories this season without Scifres, because Lechler will still be home for the holidays counting the days to Hawaii and we have a chance to be the big Kahuna.

    Yeah he got hosed. But so did Fred Taylor of the Jags. That guy will never make the pro bowl.

    I'm just glad Cromartie didn't get snubbed.

    There are a ton of great punters right now. Scifries benefits from punting in perfect weather.

    There are worse snubs on the outside looking in.

    don't worry, I've hired a goon to Kerrigan Lechler's ***:lol:

    I'll get my boi in.

    I think Phillips was the real snub

    Scifres has won several games for us by OWNING the field position.

    I'm a huge Phillips fan, but I really think Scifres could be our MVP...We have not controlled the clock all that well this year as we have in the past. We have survived having our D on the field a ton because he has pinned the dirty, nasty, opponent back in the shadow of the goal post forcing them to go 90+ yards to score...Not easily or often done regardless of how our D is playing.

    According to the Chargers website, Scifres is the First alternate in case the Oakland punter can't go.

    If I was Lechler I would fake an injury so that I could start my vacation after next weekend and not have to worry about a game in the middle of Feb.

    Interesting. Maybe a roughing the punter penalty is in order for the last game of the season. We should have ample opportunity to rush the punter in that game since they'll be doing a lot of it.:lol:
