Other than that? 

If this is baseball, you would had just advocated replacing a starting pitcher who gives you 200 innings pitched a year at above average production for a kid who throws harder but you have no idea if he has a good breaking pitch or has control. 

This is an interesting move, and I feel like fans are fine with it because the new guy as a cool nickname and is the new flavor of the month. Colquitt is an excellent punter. 

But it's  not baseball.  Punting isn't  the equivalent of starting  pitching.  That's your  qb. Never  said Colquitt  wasn't  good ( BTW, he just  got  signed by the  Vikings) just that Gilian was even- maybe even ahead- in the  competition  at this point.  

For  sure, the superior  athlete.  He's  always  going  to be  a  threat on fake  punts and FGs.

And I was impressed that he's actually a real part of the punt return stoppers. The guy can fight through blocks and hit people. He still needs to get better hang time so he doesn't outkick the coverage or learn to kick it long and OOBs for no return.

So now what people have to start wearing kilts to the games. That would be fresh.

Perhaps there should be a Kilt Crew at the games.

As Treebeard The Ent would say "don't be hasty". I believe Canton Mike is stuck with a Shelton jersey and a Lava Lava outfit.  :) 

Mayfield will have to win a couple MVPs and probably a Super Bowl or two before I'm spending money on a #6 jersey.

That would be correct.  Don't forget my Manziel jersey! :wacko:

It's not just me either....Zombo tried the Lava Lava on, but at least he didn't BUY the damn thing. Oh well, it's history now.

I believe my Joe Thomas, Baker Mayfield, & Denzel Ward have been better investments.

I was smart enough to never open the Manziel one to save as an antique. But the new Garrett one may just have to come out of the plastic on his 20th sack of the season.👍 And I'm hoping for an Astros 2019 World Champs companion to my 2017 still in plastic.

:) I  still  have a #2 Couch Jersey gathering  dust in the  basement.  After that bad investment  I  came up with a  more permanent  solution. #46 + "Your Name " is good forever. IIRC, Canton  Mike has one of  those also.

I'm surprised Mike's doesn't read "00-99" and reads "Covered" on the back.😂

Other than that- I hadn't seen Britton uncork a 70 yard punt last year.

He did have a 79 yard punt in week 6 vs the Chargers last year.

Right again Larry.  :D

#46= Browns 1st year, my year of birth, & Don Fleming's retired #. Couldn't miss on that one.

Well....if you must know.....Gillan is a sept of the Clan McClean...NOT Clan McCleod.  

My Scottish side of the family....The Gipper's are a sept of the Clan Buchanan.

Details, details, it's like Jamie having to tell OBJ he had that kilt on backwards, bet 99.9% of the folks at that party didn't know the difference.

BTW, I contacted Szabo, and the shirt isn't available- yet. That's just a prototype. They're working out the details with Jamie to get his OK to ramp up production. Of course, he's entitled to a cut of the proceeds.  :)

He looks good. Solid kicks and likes to get in on tackles. His weak point would be on FG and PAT holds. And from the reports I’ve read have him doing a whole lot of practice on that. After last years STs we should be pretty good this time around.

Sharing this very fun read about Gillan. I didn’t realize Arkansas Pine Bluff is an historical black college.

He is unique. Likes to tackle and takes his job to heart. Off to a good start too.

I’m just so unsure having a Rookie kicker and punter with how good this squad is.

Welp, I'm willing to eat some crow on this one. Anyone need a fork?

I'm still stuck with a Browns AND a White Couch jersey. I was so happy to have our team back. Poor Couch, never had a chance.

That’s pretty cool. Kinda wondering what’s going on in the world of special teams though if a punter who has simply done a solid job gets this award? Have there been any punts or kicks run back for a TD this year? Usually that guy gets that award. Or the FG kicker making a few long ones.

The need to have him do a pre game workout on the field that involves him doing this....Fuckin' A! Intimidate the other teams.

I was on Hammer's bandwagon from the get-go. Far younger, stronger, but what really sold me was the ATTITUDE I saw in interviews & when he was working. The only concern I had was his holding for the kicker, but that has been answered.

My guess is that the top selling CUSTOM jersey this year will be #7 with HAMMER (not GILLAN) on the back.
