The punt returns were awesome to watch yesterday. I'm speculating that a lot more punts will be headed to the sidelines.

But what happened on the punt snap that was downed inside the five? Why was the ball hiked so far right? And did number 10 touch the ball? Maybe it was just part of the third quarter cluster!

Burnip uses the rugby style kick which usually means moving to to his right. Was the long snapper trying to “lead” him? Don’t know. It appeared to deflect off HT. With the shadows it was hard to tell. It also appeared to me that Burnip never saw it until it was rolling on the ground.
It was a weird, weird play.

Penalties have hurt us everywhere, but especially in the kicking game. I’ve got where I almost expect a flag for holding or illegal block in the back.
