    As stated earlier, field position is very important this year.

    We're going to punt A LOT....and as Bill Parcells used to say, Special Teams is one-third of the game. 30% or more of football is spent kicking off, kicking field goals or punting.

    Our defense is our strength and our offense is our liability. Special teams has to pin our opponent deep and our kick off returns and our punt returns will be critical because once we get the ball we MIGHT generate a first down or two. So, we better be starting at our 40 or better!

    you mean the Marquette King who took 6 seconds to try and get off a punt last weekend leading to a Block/Touchdown for the Raiders opponent?

    Our New Punter?

    Was looking for some info on Spencer Lanning, the Punter we just claimed from Cleveland. Looks like he had a great TC last year with the bears but they had just given their punter a big contract:

    Chicago Sun Times

    Dave Toub, one of the NFL’s top special-teams coaches, isn’t one to gush about an undrafted rookie. But he can’t help himself with punter Spencer Lanning. “He’s having a great camp,” Toub told the Sun-Times on Thursday. “He hasn’t had a bad day since he’s been here. I’ve never seen, to be honest with you, a rookie come in and punt as consistent and powerful as he has.”

    The Bears held their first training-camp practice July 30, and many were impressed by the towering blasts of the new punter. And it wasn’t Adam Podlesh, whom the club signed to a five-year, $10 million contract that included $3.5 million in guarantees. Per the new terms of the collective-bargaining agreement, Podlesh wasn’t permitted to practice until Aug. 4, so Lanning had a chance to make an impression. And he has proved that he’s more than a “camp leg,” a young player brought to training camp to lighten the load of the proven kickers.


    As for this preseason, Lanning had punted four times (47, 49, 52 and 54 yards with a net average of 43.5 yards).

    Seems like a much more consistent success rate then conley.

    Will be a three day competition to see who gets the job. Final cut downs on Friday. MAYBE they keep both of them into next week, but I doubt it.

    Huge pickup. We can't afford giving opposing teams great field position with Conley's shanks. The way this team is setup, we need a solid punter that can help us win the field position battle.

    A few threads on this topic..Perhaps a Mod could merge them...


    Bears fail in bid to bring in punter Lanning

    The Chicago Bears are exploring options in the event punter Adam Podlesh is not available for the start of the regular season, but they were stymied in efforts to acquire a replacement Tuesday.

    The Bears placed a waiver claim for Spencer Lanning, who was cut by the Cleveland Browns, but they lost him to the New York Jets, according to an NFL source. The Jets rank higher in the NFL’s waiver claim process.

    Lanning was a camp leg for the Bears last summer and special teams coordinator Dave Toub liked his work. Toub said Monday that Ryan Quigley was the team’s punter for now, but the Bears clearly are not sitting tight with the undrafted rookie free agent from Boston College.

    It all comes down to who Tebow is more comfortable personally protecting.

    Ok, but why did the Browns cut him? He's worse than Brad Maynard?

    Tebow holding would be a disaster.

    Everytime the ball is snapped, he'd be thinking run first.

    Same here, we need someone who can get good field position consistently. Major upgrade needed here
