    Yeah, McFadden is one guy that I feel has a great future for us and I think he'll start later this season and next season for sure.

    Nothing against Barr, he's doing well so far and has done in the past in camps.

    actually he just never been blocked, there is a lot more punters i'd take over him. i rather have a punter with a boot, not sure if barr has a boot, but gardocki is just avg at best when it comes to having a boot. and if barr can do what he can do and cost less why the hell not and save some money

    Gardocki may not boot a punt 60 yds at a shot anymore but he's a big reason why our special teams have been good in the last several years. He and Josh Miller both are as sound as it gets when it comes to directional punting which is one of the main reasons they've both lasted as long as they have in the league. Sooner or later though Im sure he'll be a cap casualty; just par for the course with expensive veterans.

    I think this is Gardocki's last season because Barr has shown he can kick just as far as Chris and during this season he'll continue to work on that as well as build his accuracy.
