Agreed. Malone is doing great. However, do not underestimate the benefits of incredible protection. Similar to a QB, Malone is enjoying a "clean pocket" because of the constant threat of fake punts by Tebow. I can't remember a time when a team has faked as many punts as the Jets have been doing. This is resulting in Malone having a lot of time to get off a relaxed, unrushed punt. This isn't the sole reason he's punting so well, it is largely him, but I do think very limited pressure from rushers is helping.
