    Consider THIS when you consider Ben Graham

    This speaks very well of the punt coverage team to be sure, but you better believe it has a lot to do with those absolute moon-shots Ben Graham launches as well

    I took this from the Bergen Record, Randy Lange

    Every team in the NFL has given up a punt return of at least 15 yards this year except the Jets

    Great stat Ham, I love obscure stats like these.

    Our special teams have been excellent this year as well, we haven't really had a big return in the kickoff game either against us. Those "hidden" yards in the punt game really can mean the difference in wining and losing in the NFL where it seems every game comes down to a matter of two or three plays.

    Even more impressive seeing as that Devin Hester was in town.

    Great point...Hester had only one return for seven yards and Graham punted seven times that game.

    That's because it doesn't matter who the return man is when your punter launches rockets into the clouds

    You said it #2, its called hidden yardage that really adds up over the course of the game. Same reason it'd be nice to get some touchbacks here and there.
