    Allen beats out Mesko

    Cost must have been a factor.

    Wow! Mesko is a heck of a punter...not a big CAP number yet? It Gotkoski that has the big CAP number this year yes?

    I just  came from the  ESPN Boston site and didn't see it.

    Where did you see this?

    I thought he was pretty good in pre-season. I thought it was a close race regardless of cost.

    Pats have the cap space , no ?  It is about the money savings which sometimes baffles me. From what I saw in preseason Allen's leg is not as strong as Mesko's.

     Maybe the Pats are in cap hell, having to cut their punter.  Sort of like Green Bay.

    Didn't we use a 4th round pick on him?

    3 more Patriots cuts: P Zoltan Mesko, DT Marcus Forston, RB George Winn, source confirms. Team down to 60 players.  (Field Yates Twitter)

    @jeffphowe Patriots save $921,500 against the cap by keeping Ryan Allen over Zoltan Mesko, and they don't have to worry about Mesko's contract year.

    The difference is that they have Allen at low cost tied up for 4 years and Mesko while relatively cheap this year was not going to be cheap in the following three years. They must have felt some other team would snap up Allen if he was cut. This goes back to a similar situation in the last year of Vinateri's time here

    I thought the same. Seems like Allen has a better knack for hitting the ball out of bounds inside the 20 than Mesko. But that was just a small sampling of what was televised. It would be interesting to hear or see just why they really chose one over the other.

    I don't think so.  Why would Ghost (higher salary) still be here and face no competition?

    Allen seems better at the newer style of holding/punting the ball that allows you to get the backspin near the goal line.

    Because Ghost is one of the best kickers in the league. Kickers > Punters

    I mentioned that I heard on the radio that Mesko might be challenged by Ryan and was taken to the shed for it by Belichick's Guardian Angel.

    Now, we have to see how this spins.  I honestly can't wait.

    He can't admit that Mesko was outplayed because he spent that thread talking about the money.

    He can't talk about the money because just created a thread making fun of Green Bay for restructuring the kicker to save cap space.

    He can't say that Mesko wasn't good enough because he was drafted by Belichick.

    So, what will it be?  I can guarantee you one this:  It won't be "Hey NAS, sorry for being such a loser when you posted some about this three weeks ago."
