He didn't do too bad. No shanks, decent hang time. He needs to work on placement though. Get more kicks inside the 15-20.

He looks like he'll be solid. I really liked the hang time, and the fact that there were only 21 return yards on 7 freaking kicks.
No. That belongs to Fletcher. He was the best player on the field for us last night.

A pleasure to second with enthusiasm the Lady's succinct characterization!

while his punts may not have had the distance all the time, they had great hang time.

lets face it, Net yards are all that matter. that hang time won him the ball.

Exactly, his net average was 34.9. I like that for his first "real" game in the Meadowlands.

If he's punting that many times a game the whole season, he'll have to retire by Week 15. Leg'll probably wear out.

Not sure how you can single Brooks out for criticism last night.

If your rookie punter is responsible for your team's only first down of the opening quarter - you have problems. And none of them Brook's fault.

We made the right move keeping Brooks. He looked decent and that was his first game. Wate intill he gets more real NFL games under his belt. He will be a good punter.

not only that, he had his clock cleaned and still came back to punt without looking shell shocked. he looks like a winner.. and it was the experienced feagles
who actually had the only shank of the night-- in the 4th quarter

Brooks getting the punter job lifted a cloud of tension from my body that I didn't realize was there until afterward. Not once last night did the appearance of the punter on the field cause mining for couch foam. Frosty the Shankman could be relied upon to let nerves drive him to 1-2 absolute shanks per close contest. The guy was a nightmare. Bless you, Durant. Thanks to you my alka seltzer budget is half what it was this time last year.

I agree with the following:
Had 2b nervous - 1st game an all
Giants put on a relentless rush I add this - their goal was to BLOCK A PUNT!
He had to two poor punts, two good punts and 1 long punt. Two he set inside the 20.

Considering the Giants desire to block him, he was a rookie, he did very well. I hope to see steady improvement from him in next couple of weeks.
