It’s time to talk a little Cameron Johnston. Yes, we mean the punter. There are plenty of ways to win a football game. Perhaps the third phase of any football squad, its’ special teams unit, doesn’t always get the love it deserves unless, of course, we’re discussing Dave Fipp and what he’s done with the Philadelphia Eagles special teams unit.
Often, we rejoice over blocked field goals or punts. We do so even more for long field goals and punts and kickoffs that are returned for touchdowns. We tend to forget about one very important topic when we talk about the little things that decide games, and that’s the subject of field position.
