Default Special Finnish

On the front page but here is the link:

http://www.bengals.com/news/article-...a-2fa323a2a010

The quote in question:

"The technique (McNutt) used to try and block him," said Simmons, who prefers blockers not to be thrown into punters.

Now my question:

Why would it matter how the blocked punt occurs? There is no penalty or anything illegal against it. So why not prefer to throw a blocker into the punter. This would help curtail a possible penalty by "roughing the kicker", as well as increase the possibility of blocking the punt due to a bigger area to deflect the ball.

What are your thoughts on this?

Totally not the topic I anticipated on reading the thread title. But it is Saturday night and I'm hoping my wife gives me one!

Hoping?? That should already be understood.

Moving on, If a guy like Herron can drive the blocker into the punter, let it be.

A Special Finnish is not to be confused with a Special Sweedish

LOL, some comedians on here.

That is my point about driving a guy into the punter should be praised, however it looks like Simmons will try to "work out the kinks" and basically fix what isn't broken because he "prefers blockers to not be thrown into the punter".

Maybe I am reading into the statement too much.

Just rubbed me the wrong way.

As fans we are happy with any way we get a blocked punt. I would guess Simmons feels its faster to get through the block to the punter as opposed to pushing the blocker to the punter.

That last comment explains why no special Finnish for you!

Actually I prefer a special French/Hungarian.
