Pat, but to be fair he has a LOT more practice as our ST coverage has always been terrible. (Although it seems a bit better this season)

jeff george is famous for his wave tackle as the guy runs right by him for a TD

We don't have a big enough sample size from Luck (and I'm hoping we never do). Pat is a great tackler, and one of the only punters willing to give up his body for the tackle.

Dang that is a tough question..

Mac and Andrew will str8 up lay someone out...

Luck could play FB or LB in the NFL I would go with him. Better all around athlete.

I'm just glad Luck was "smart" enough to realize that QB's make more money than FB's or LB'rs...

hehe

That is one of my all time favorite Colt highlights... Halloween night if I remember correctly..

Neon Deion got schooled by a punter.. the beginning of the end for the mighty Cowboys......

Lovely...

By the way Hunter was a QB/P and a very good athlete at Notre Dame...

Must be in the air here in Indiana...

Not a contest. Luck lays 235# of whup butt, but Pat wraps up like a seasoned defender.

McAfee was a sophomore at West Virginia when Devin Hester ran that kickoff back.

Lol. We didn't have Pat then... Smith was still our punter, and AV was on kick off duty.

Patty Mac, he led the team in tackles last season if I remember correctly.

Patty Mac... must have the most tackles by a punter in the history of the NFL.

If you don't count, like, Baugh, maybe.

But seriously, in 3.5 seasons he already has more tackles than Lechler has had in 12.5, Moorman has had in 12.5, McBriar has had in 8.5, Scifres has had in 9.5, or Kluwe has had in 7.5.

Although it doesn't appear they have tackle stats from before 2001. So I can't give an accurate comparison with a guy like Hentrich.

The only thing jeff george was good at was stroking his ego......oh and losing

If George just would have had a better attitude he would have been one of the all time greats.

Believe it or not his career TD to INT's are 154 to 113 .. that is FAR better than many QB's in the HOF...

Shame really...

Having a QB and P who are studs is a great thing...

But I don't even want to see the reaction on this board .................. if one gets hurt in the act.....

    • That's so right. I used to drive through South Bend and I heard LeBetard on a South Bend station. His show made no sense for a national audience and they quickly went to something else.   He must be the nephew of the guy who runs ESPN...or his bookie
    • I've heard of Mike Francesca.. I've never heard his show.  Not one time.  Hes not on here in the Chicago area.
      I'm not knocking him..he must be good. I've just never heard him Howard Stern isn't on in Chicago. Most of the names you mention, I've never heard their shows. Russo used to be on with Don Imus when Imus was on TV...and that's where I know him from. Seems like a decent kid but he's strange   We didn't get Sporting News radio in Chicago except overnights. The NBC radio network was never on up here.  Daytime sports programming was and is pretty local in Chicago.... Mike North, Dan Jiggetts....Carmen and Jurko....Waddle and Silvy   With Sirius Radio..I know every body is on Nationally now... Ive heard a little of that (just got a newer car) and it sounds good..a channel for every sport. Interesting But its not free... so my interest is chilled by lack of cash    
    •   You have never heard of Mike Francesa? He has been on the radio since 1989 or so. His show comes on in most parts of the country on weekday afternoons. If you heard of "Mike and the Mad Dog", he is Mike.  He has had a national football show on the radio on Sundays during the NFL season for at least 20 years.   You mentioned Chet Coppack. There used to be a 24-hour sports radio station called Sporting News Radio. Do you know it? It may still be around but we no longer get it where I am. I believe it was based out of the Chicago area or somewhere in the Midwest. Chet Coppack used to have a show on Saturdays or Sundays. Other sports radio personalities that I remember were Jay Mariotti, Scott Wetzel, Nestor Aparicio, Tony Bruno, Papa Joe Chevalier (deceased), Bruce Murray, Rick Ballou, and others. I used to enjoy them because they talked national sports, not just local sports. 
    • Dont get me wrong, Dan Gilbert is a terrible owner. But, this is 99% LeBron's fault. Even If the cavs still had Griffin, there is nothing that Griffin can do to improve the team. They have no cap space to get big time free agents and they have no assets to trade, outside the big three. LeBron stood his ground and made sure his guys got paid. Tristan, JR, Shumpert, and Frye. Those contracts look as bad with the cap increase as they did before them. LeBron forced the team to trade any assets they had for the likes of Mozgov. Lebron got the good coach fired and had him replaced him with his buddy. Lebron gutted the team from the inside out and he's now doing his best to shift the blame of him.    Kyrie requested to be traded back when Butler was still with the bulls. Why leak the information weeks later? And the guy who leaked it, Windhorst, is well known to be LeBron's guy. Just more shifting of the blame
    • That's true..but a new GM can do the same. Look I understand why folks don't like Dan Gilbert. He never speaks. Never defends himself..and he bad mouthed LeBron on his way out of town.   But when you lay down the bucks the way he does, I think he can be demanding. I dont know what trades they can make in their financial situation... Irving wanting to be traded may be a blessing because it allows them to get finances back somewhere near seas level.   I dont know if you can count on the same guy who overpaid everybody to turn around and find value guys
