Yea he's crushing it. Tons of hangtime and distance. With a couple less touchbacks he'd be averaging 50 yards.

Packers need a punter that can conjure up memories of Craig Hentrichs and Josh Bidwell.

It's been a revolving door in recent years and they need a guy who can consistently help tilt the field in their favor.

It's likely why they invested the draft pick that they did in Scott. His future looks bright right now, and that bodes well for the Packers.

So is Scott that guy?

I would say that his arrow is pointed up at the moment.

The talent is there. Making it happen every kick is the next goal.

He's off to a good start so far this preseason.

Serious question. Is punting during the exhibition season vastly different than punting during the regular season? Weather of course is a factor, especially on the Frozen Tundra. But do teams scheme differently when the games actually count, or is the pressure about the same, both from a physical and psychological standpoint?

I like that question, Ricky!  Are you thinking what I'm thinking, that it's probably not all that much different? 

I'd think the biggest difference would be less an increase in opponent pressure, and more a big increase in internal mental pressure.

He's been all the more impressive given his high school classes resumed this last week.

Dickson out in Seattle is a punting freak.  He and Scott were the top 2 coming out the year they were drafted.  Scott looks good so far. I give the edge to Dickson but Scott could make it interesting with a good year.

With the Packers bad running offense in exhibition games, Scott has gotten lots of punting opportunities!  I hope our offense isn't giving him constant punting snaps once the real games resume....

If that was a nickname that stuck, I would give about 2 days before the always offended about anything and everything crowd would be demanding an apology from whoever used it for being insensitive.

True, it wont catch on. The networks wouldnt use it for those reasons.  We live in a different era today, a name like "Pistol Pete" probably wouldnt fly today.
