So who are these punters and kickers that no one really knows about?...
Brad Maynard- Chicago Bears
Maynard, punter for the Chicago Bears was the king of field possession this year. He averaged 41.2 yards per punt, but the number that stands out most: 40. Maynard had 40 punts that were downed inside the opponents 20 yard line.
Donnie Jones- St. Louis Rams
Jones had a lot on his plate this year. With the Rams going 3 and out many times this year, he had to punt the ball many times. His leg was important to the Rams, and he did not disappoint. He averaged over 50 yards a punt this year, which allowed the Rams to slow their opponents... just a little bit.
John Carney- New York Giants
Carney is a prime kicker in the league and has helped the giants to the number 1 seed in the NFC this year. He has only missed 3 field goals all year. He was filling in for the injured Lawrence Tynes, and did a great job doing so.
Mike Scifres- San Diego Chargers
After what Scifres did in the playoff game against the Colts on Saturday night, I put him as the best punter in the league at the time. With 6 punts all inside the 20, and all above 50 yards, it was ridiculous how he was pinning the Colts with bad field possession all night.
Other forgotten ones:
Matt McBriar- Dallas Cowboys
Shane Lechler- Oakland Raiders
Andy Lee- San Fransisco 49ers
Kris Brown- Houston Texans
Ryan Longwell-Minnesota Vikings
