Who is your favorite PUNTER in Bills History?

Gotta be Moorman. I mean he was one of the only legit top tier player the Bills had for years during the drought.

It was fun watching him & our ST pin people deep or completely reverse field position after our pitiful offenses did absolutely nothing.

 

Was it because he was great?

 

Or because the rest of the team stunk so bad? ;) 

 

Pretty tragic when the highest player rating in Madden is your punter for 6 years ;)

McGuire was one of the best AFL punters and excelled in the clutch coffin corner kick.  He also played linebacker.  In college he played both ways at End and LB, he led the NCAA in receptions at the Citadel.  
 

Moorman was also a fabulous athlete and one of best punters in his era. 
 

These are the two best, from totally different eras.

Anyone who doesn't say Paul Maguire isn't a real fan.

 

Many of us aren't old (enough to have seen him play). ;)

 

And I'll go Moorman.  Might be a good idea to draft one next year.

First Round ;) 

 

I say go punterless for 2021 ;) 

 

Josh is getting better every year and Bass Master can hit from 60+ easily ;)

Don’t know if previously posted, but I’ll go with the guy who named his dog Hangtime.

 

I’ll let you guys figure it out.

During 1965 AFL Championship he blocked two Charger players on Byrd's TD run.  Pretty good backup. 

I won a tape of 1965 AFL Championship game on a game bus raffle before there were DVD copies of games.

Punters? Are they really football players? Aren’t they part of the 3rd rail/ red headed step child of football, being a special teams player, that teams only have because they are forced into it...

How did he not hyperextend his knee!?

 

And Moorman.  Obviously.

I'm voting for Corey Bojorquez solely because of that 12-yard punt. AMAZING.

 Does Bojo have the longest and shortest punts in the NFL this season?

Goodness, quite the reach.....yet here I am.  🤷‍♂️

 

Moorman is the obvious answer. I’ll go with Paul Maguire. I believe he had a punt go up, get caught in the wind in the Rockpile and blow back for negative yardage. Things you’ll never forget. He was the punter in my formative years. 

 

My dad took me not only to the games, but I remember a trip to Sestak & Maguire’s back in the day for lunch. It’s partly the football, but often more the family times you remember.  It’s a bond that goes deep. 

 

 

EDIT: Just looked it up and he died of a heart attack at the age of 51. That is WAY too early. Great Bill, liked him in the booth. Sad loss of a member of the Bills family. 

 

Latest Edit: It was Sestak who left us way too soon. Apparently Paul is still with us, I’m happy to hear. 

I met Paul.  Funny guy and good story teller.  He is my pick for favorite punter too.

Moorman. Had seasons for most of those years. A large portion of fans, possibly me included, in my section would chant mvp whenever he trotted out after the latest 3 and out to boom one deep

Brian Moorman who held the position for 12 years?   Chris Mohr during the Glory years?

 

My favorite is Colton Schmidt who was with the team during 2014-2017.  They were NOT Glory years.  During his 4 years he averaged 44.0 yards per punt with zero blocked.  He had a tough attitude for a punter.

Brian Moorman

Yeah, he just comes off as a guy you’d love to have a beer with. I’m sure he has some crazy stories too!

Mohr and Moorman.

 

Remember the days when Moorman's #8 was the top-selling Bills jersey? My how times have changed.

Top selling? Wow, that’s crazy!

 

What McD, Beane and JA have done to turn around this team and culture is pretty awesome.

Beer time was fun time.  His stories were funny and sometimes salty.  Good to friends with the DiPaolos.
