In response to Harvey-Wallbanger's comment:
Punter Ryan Allen: The undrafted free agent ranks 10th in the NFL with a 46.4 average and 16th in net punting (39.9) as he's proven to be up to the task of replacing veteran Zoltan Mesko. He's also the holder on field goals, andStephen Gostkowski is 22 of 23 this season. Allen's eight touchbacks are tied for the NFL high, which is an area for improvement.
I'm really starting to wonder if the holding thing was the tie breaker in why he beat out Zoltan. Mesko always seemed to have good holds on video while Ghost was going through his troubles the past couple years, but it could be something minor in the way he was holding was throwing off the kicks. You always hear how every kick is a combination of the snap, hold and kick, but most everybody always blows off the first 2 parts of the process and blames the kicker alone when things go wrong.
