Am I really about to write a post about a punter? Did the Bears really draft a punter?
Listen, I’m not going to knock the importance of a punter on your football team. They have value, okay? I get that. But I don’t think they would have had more value than a linebacker like Shayne Skov or a defensive end like Jackson Jeffcoat.
But Patrick O’Donnell is a Bear, and here’s what I know.
He catches the snap from the long-snapper on fourth down and then kicks it high in the air. I also know that O’Donnell was second in the FBS with an average punt of 47.13 yards per last season. So, you know, he’s good at punting.
But he’s a punter, so whatever.
