Filed under: Rams, NFC West When you are 2-12 — and probably worse than the 0-14 team — you shouldn’t expect to see any of your players headed to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl in February, unless he’s having an individually historic season. So, when the St. Louis Rams players are complaining about the snub of their punter, Donnie Jones, your initial inclination is to just tell them to shut up. Except for one thing, Jones kind of is having a historic season.

- Jones averages over 50 yards per punt. The only other person in the history of the NFL to average over 50 yards a punt? It happened in 1940. Coincidentally, he passed away yesterday. The great Sammy Baugh did it for the Redskins.

-Also: Jones’ net average is an NFC-best 40.9 yards; the league record, dating to 1976, is 41.1, set last year by Oakland’s Shane Lechler. I guess it would make more sense if Jones was brutal at pinning opposition in the red-zone, but he’s done so 18 times with only five touchbacks. Basically, if you look at the numbers in front of you, it’s obvious he’s punting from deep in Rams territory frequently this season, and bailing them out.Continue Reading
