“Punters are People Too” Movement all started with CSK Alum Bryan Anger

In last April’s NFL Draft, Rich Eisen of the NFL Network coined the expression “Punters Are People Too” and what has ensued since has been a mini movement of sorts throughout the NFL.  Eisen proclaimed the now famous expression after the Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Punter and Chris Sailer Kicking Alum Bryan Anger (Cal) in the 3rd round of last year’s NFL Draft.

Since that day the “Punters Are People Too” movement has created a frenzy amongnst NFL locker rooms. This was never more apparent than this past season when the Super Bowl Champs Baltimore Ravens wore the “Punters Are People Too” T-shirts in support of their Punter Sam Koch.

Bryan Anger – Mr. Power Leg in Football Kicking

Bryan Anger, a Chris Sailer kicking alum, wasn’t always known as America’s second best football punter in the nation and NFL. That said, he’s regularly made an impression in his football career, starting early on. In his college punting years, Anger made the All-Pac First Team three years straight.

In 2012 he was picked up as a third round draft pick and signed to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since then, the rookie has posted 82 punts with an average 47.5 yard distance in 14 games. His overall yardage kicked totals almost 4,000 yards. It’s no surprise his teammates have nicknamed Bryan the moniker, “Banger,” for his powerful kicking leg and consistency.

Some critics are noting Anger needs development on directional kicking, harnessing the apparent power he has in a focused result. This development for now is expected to come with experience and game play, with Bryan having only played one full season so far.
