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.....

:woah:

      Do some research on the Manziel family before assuming his parents have zero to do with his upbringing.

      So now you think I am lying? Well here is a web site who has Vinny rated at # 16. Sporting Charts.com. So frankly I couldn't care less of you are what you think.
    • Ryan Leaf's Comment on Johnny Manziel
      excerpt from bio on Ray Rice.  It's safe to say Ray faced many more destructive elements early in his life than Johnny.   Sorry.  I'm not buying the excuses of hanger-ons around Johnny looking to capitalize before the gravy train comes to a stop.  As bad as it sounds, Johnny did something similar or worse to his girlfriend than what RRice did to his wife.  He should be banished until Rice is allowed to return.

    • Ryan Leaf's Comment on Johnny Manziel
      Why didn't people make this excuse for Vick, Josh Gordon, R Rice, Hardy, etc?  Heck, it was confirmed that Adrian Peterson used to get beat, but nobody gave him a pass.   Regardless how Manziel was raised, he is an adult public figure and should act like it.  I guess it is his parents fault because they offer a lifetime golden parachute.  Times are tough indeed.
