    Who really belongs in the Pro Bowl

    Mike Scifres, Chargers: The amazing thing about Scifres is his hang time: Watch the trajectory on his kicks; they go noticeably higher than other punters' kicks do. That's why only 19 of his 52 punts have been returned this season.

    As long as our D holds their end of the bargain, Sci-Fi screws the opposition over.

    I give all the hang time credit to Norv. It's obvious to me now that he's been spending all of his time focusing on increased trajectory from the punter... while completely ignoring the offense. :lol:

    Maybe he's pretending the ball is Norval's head.

    Scifres is the bomb. He neutralizes almost completely a portion of the other teams game. Hester was a complete non-issue in our game. Broncos probably wish they could say the same.

    The dude is just great. I didn't know I could get so fired up about a punter.

    Definite pro-bowler. Is he locked with a long-term contract?

    Perhaps the best in league history. I've never seen a guy get the consistent hang time he does, and have the control to knock it inside the 20. Lechler's the most overrated. The only thing he does consistently is outkick his coverage.

    Scifres and Ray Guy and both lay claim to the best in history. Over his career, Guy was not only a boomer, but consistent. I don't doubt he shanked a few, but I don't remember him causing any disasters in tight situation that I can remember. Guy not in the Hall is a travesty. I'm Outrages. He and Marcus Allen are the only two Raiders I don't hate. I also enjoyed Snake Stabler's stories about Wonderfully Wicked Wanda.

    There are a few Raiders from history I don't hate. Can't really hate Belitnikoff and Stabler. And old '00 is also a hard one to hate.

    Most hated though was Dave Casper. Never could forgive that cheating sack for the Holy Roller and for making first down catches every single time they needed one.

    And totally agree Ray Guy not in the hall is a travesty.

    Bennet tutored Scifres for a season or two then went to the vikes for a while. I think he's retired now. hell of a good guy and a viscious tackler. has a son w/ severe MS confined to a wheelchair and does some good charity work. Bennet is the reason I have wood for punters:lol:
