    btw, CW--Jamie Kohl was a kicker, not a punter...

    Who dreams of being a punter? I can see maybe a kicker, winning a game late and all of that but a punter?

    no kidding. I'm an accountant, and even I didn't dream of being one. It's like dreaming of being firefighter but not the kind that goes into burning buildings it's the kind that sits at headquarters and does all the paperwork.

    This. I remember my uncle (a football and wrestling coach) telling me, "If you want to play professional football, become a punter or kicker. It's tough, but at least you don't get the physical abuse."
