Hunter the Punter is back in a redskins uniform and now the season is looking bright once again. (only kidding) Hunter was resigned though and Bidwell was placed on IR.
I am surprised though that he was not brought back last year as he did pretty well. Instead, we brought in a guy that is old and spent the entire previous year on IR, and is now once again, on IR.
I am pleased by this move for several reasons, but primarily it is because everytime we go into a kicking situation, I am worried. Punts used to be a nothing play in my mind, yet everytime Bidwell went to punt I would cringe. Everytime Sundberg is out there to snap I am worried. Having a guy out there who is considered to be one of the best holders in the game makes me feel better about the field goals, and honestly, the punting siutation should improve as well.
I wish I could provide some stats but I'm not good that good at writing these things yet and droping in charts. Maybe someone will help me in the comments, or maybe nobody cares about punter stats.
Poll after the jump.
