Alan Robinson, of the Associated Press, reports Pittsburgh Steelers P Mike Barr is feels confident in his game and believes he could become the team's punter for 2006. Barr is competing with veteran P Chris Gardocki, who has never had a punt blocked in 1,112 attempts. However, Gardocki carries a cap vale of $1.3 million for the season. Barr said, "I've had situational punts, I've gotten the team out of trouble, I've pinned teams down deep inside 10. I've handled every situational punt well. I've got a lot of confidence in myself in those kicks, and I've got a lot of reps doing it."
