It began with a blocked punt in the dying seconds of the first half. It wasn't his fault, Martez Wilson rushed right up the middle, unblocked, and got to the ball easily. It was snapped up by Courtney Roby and taken to the house. Rocca's poor day continued when on his next punt the snap was off-target, he nearly fumbled the ball and had to run to escape pressure. He managed to punt the ball while moving and I was struck by an incredible wave of deja-vu. I half expected him to bounce the ball first. To Rocca's credit the poor snap was not his fault, in fact the long snapper Nick Sundberg was playing with a broken arm. You can see a replay of the play here. Rocca finished the day strongly with a 46.3 yards per punt average from three punts, the longest being 58 yards on the last punt of the day. Ben Graham also had an interesting day during the Lions' win against the St. Louis Rams. Graham managed 40.3 yards per punt from three punts, but did place the ball within the Rams' own 20 twice. In a game that was initially handed to the Rams thanks to Stafford's interceptions it was great that they were able to force Sam Bradford and his offence to try and score on long drives when they had to give possession of the ball back. Mat McBriar is still without a NFL team but this week it was revealed why he was cut by the Eagles. In a recent interview Eagles special teams coordinator Bobby Apirl said that Chas Henry (the punter McBriar was competing with) had improved his short punts enough to rival McBriar and ultimately held an advantage being a reliable holder for kicker Alex Henery. Hard for McBriar to compete with that considering Chas and Henery had been working together for a full year. Still, it was clear McBriar had a fair go at the competition and gave the Eagles reason to think about their decision.
