    Kapinos starts camp with a back injury!

    The punting job for the steelers is going to be a hotly contested position at the 2012 camp as drew Butler squares off against incumbent Jeremy Kapinos. this battle got off the a slow start with Kapinos dealing with a back injury . Personally i think Butler is a better punter than Kapinos but then i also think Swayze Waters is a better kicker than suisam but suisam has a job and waters doesn't breaking in to the nfl as a kicker isn't easy unless you are drafted

    It doesn't appear to be anything major, Tomlin said only missing a couple days. Butler did have 2 booming kicks of 70+ yds followed by some poor kicks as well. It's still anybody's job at this point but I think Butler will have to have a great camp and preseason to unseat Kapinos.

    It's sooo hard to get a kicking job unless the team needs a kicker 98% of the time they go with the old shoe or kicker so to speak

    No big deal, we have 2 capable punters in house, let the best foot win!

    I somewhat predicted in the roster throwdown that Butler may get the job. He'll be cheaper and I believe he has a better leg. Just my opinion.

    If they move off signing Wallace money won't be a concern

    Butler is actually Kevin Butler's son, former kicker with 'da Bears.

    He hasn't been particularly impressive at camp so far. The first day he was booming a couple over 75 yds then he followed it up with some not so good ones of less than 50 I believe. He's been inconsistent at best but it's only the first week so perhaps he'll get better. I don't want a guy that kicks it 75 yds one time and 40 the next. I'd rather have a guy that can place it inside the 20 all the time than a cannon for a leg who can't control the placement.

    Sometimes the booming kicks can actually out-kick the coverage. Find a serviceable punter and give him the job.

    Where's Chris Gardocki these days, he has never had a blocked punt in the NFL.
