Jets | Edwards Concerned About Punting Game

Mon, 25 Oct 2004 17:13:36 -0700

Randy Lange, of the Bergen Record, reports New York Jets head coach Herman Edwards expressed some concern following the Week 7 game at the New England Patriots about P Toby Gowin, whose gross average is 37.8 yards per punt which ranks 32nd and last among NFL qualifying punters. "That weather wasn't real conducive up there," Edwards said of the damp, cold New England conditions. "Am I concerned? Can he punt better? Well, yeah, but he's our guy. At times he's made some great kicks, too. We can't forget about the ones he's made." Gowin had net punts of 24 and 30 yards against the Patriots. Part of the problem could be is that Gowin has also handled all but two of the Jets' 28 kickoffs.
