I'm a week behind on TMQ

So I will try to get to this week's column later today. Here's the best thing he said last week:

Rare is the spectator who cares about the punter, but by midseason, Falcons fans may wish their team had tried harder to retain Mike Koenen, who left for City of Tampa in free agency. Koenen was both skilled at downing punts inside the 20, and as a kickoff man, finished third in the NFL last season for touchbacks. With the kickoff line moved up 5 yards this year, the strong-legged kickoff man rises in value, and teams like Atlanta, that score a lot, benefit most from lots of touchbacks.

That part about strong-legged kickoff guys rising in value as the kickoff line is moved forward is correct, except that the exact opposite is correct. What a blithering idiot.
