This means both punters, 3rd-round pick B.J. Sander and just-signed vet Bryan Barker (neither of whom were very good in preseason) will be kept on the active roster.
It also means that Mike McKenzie has no roster spot. Because the Pack never cut him, that should put him into "failed to report" status...and the team doesn't have to pay him one damn dime. Hooray for non-guaranteed NFL money!
Other notes: Grey Ruegamer, a center I really like, beat draft pick Scott Wells for the honor of backing up Mike Flanagan at center.
And Ashwaubenon native Aaron Stecker(NewOrleansSaints.com) made it onto the Saints' final roster, too. Woohoo!
(EDIT: DrewDeuce, I reiterate: SCREW Tim Couch.)

I'm just upset that the Packers have crap for punters. I mean, TWO of 'em? If we could graft the legs off one and onto the other, I'd understand. But now we're left with two punters who can't punt (well).
While I think it might make plays more exciting and (as you said) games shorter, a block in the back is so dangerous because the person being blocked doesn't see it coming. Even if it's above the waist, legs and ankles can be easily broken.
