    If Kirby floated a fake punt pass...

    It has been brought up in multiple threads that the coaching staff needs to change the holder to a quarterback which is stupid. Holding is all about reps, just like anything else. We don't want our kicker kicking off a tee all practice. This brings up the question....

    If Kirby floated a fake punt pass would we all be calling for a backup QB to punt for the three times all year we call a fake punt?!?!

    **Note: Some cannot sense sarcasm. I am not saying this should be a serious consideration. Just trying to compare it to the backup qb holder idea. I posted it because it sounds idiotic just like inserting a backup qb as a holder

    Trying to say it doesn't make any sense to put a guy in a spot because he is better at the fake that is used once or twice a season. If you feel its beating a dead horse don't read it, message boards are for this kind of thing

    Re: If Kirby floated a fake punt pass...

    Ok.... Lets talk about this. This had been beaten to death. Today is now tuesday, the game is over time to move on.

    Now lets make sense of your thread..

    You run a fake punt with your punter. Otherwise teams would know it is a fake. And you would be the dumbest coach in the history of sports.

    Now many teams still use a backup qb to hold a fg. I think fans would like to see this, and not the backup punter. Just incase we want to run this again, or in a bad snap situation.

    All I got from this thread is Ben Lamaak is going to be our new quarterback this Saturday. Klein will handle punting and Lenz earned the kicking duties.

    Re: If Kirby floated a fake punt pass...

    I think the holder should have the same number as a backup QB that is similar in
    size and appearance.

    I think I turned semi-******** after reading this thread.

    Re: If Kirby floated a fake punt pass...

    I was NOT in fact suggesting that they run a fake punt with someone other than the punter. Just stating that with some of the logic used in regards to the fake PAT I could see people starting to say this. Sorry to keep beating your dead horse, it appears to have been beaten too many times today....
