    For those who are worried that Araiza can't hold... He's working on it. Here from camp.

    Matt Araiza: Holder

    We finally got a chance to see Matt Araiza holding. However, it was just in limited individual drills with the other specialists and not in any sort of actual extra point or field goal environment as a team.

    There's a video (probably in the same twit feed) of him also long snapping.

    Re: Punter Matt Araiza

    Three things:
    1. Done Araiza have the touch to put the ball inside the 5?
    2. Is hang time or distance more important?

    3. Who’s handling the snap duties better?

    My opinion, I’ll take hang time over distance and the ability to put puts inside the 5 yard line.

    I guess it come ma down to hope or production?

    Re: Punter Matt Araiza

    What's more important is making sure Bass has a good holder. Yes, the rook has the better leg and improved his hang time.
    We don't even have pictures
    Just memories to hold
    That grow sweeter each season

    Re: Punter Matt Araiza

    Araiza held for a bunch of Bass FGs yesterday and Bass nailed them all. On day last week he held for 8 Bass kicks and Bass made them all. Knowing he can hold and has better distance and virtually the same hang time (and he can still improve on this), it's Araiza's job to lose.

    Re: Punter Matt Araiza

    If I can punt the ball over the receivers' head, I'm going for that. Hack wasn't a lock last year or we wouldn't have drafted a punter.

    So Haack’s hang time is more important to you! I think so too!

    I saw what Haack did in orchard park late in the season. I don't want that. Roll with the rookie.

    A 0.07 difference in hang time is practically meaningless.

    From all reports, the only question for Arazia is if he could handle holding....and has been answered 100% in the affirmative.

    It would be a HUGE surprise if he does not beat our Haack.

    Re: Punter Matt Araiza

    Keeping Araiza over Haack also helps with the cap. Since he can hold and his hang time is negligibly less than Haack (and it's something he can work on) and his average is better, he'll make the team.

    If you can teach an "inaccurate" QB accuracy you can teach a talented punter hang time.

    Re: Punter Matt Araiza

    I think hang time has to some extent been a work in progress for Araiza, and I think the overall trend has been improvement for him. I think it will be far more telling to compare their hang time over 3 or 4 practices at the end of August.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    I'm the most reasonable poster here. If you don't agree, I'll be forced to have a hissy fit.
