However, consider also, that he did not have Mathieu there the second year to down them.


Don't forget Ron Brooks. He was also instrumental in downing many of those punts inside the opponent's 10 yd. line. Credit where credit is due.

No team wants to deal with a head case, especially one that's only a punter.

As much as he helped the team in '11, he apparently is enough of a "me monster" for even LSU coaching staff to kindly ask him to not let the screen door him hit on his way out.

People say he will grow up now that he has a kid. Didn't people say the same thing about Hernandez who just had a kid out of wedlock, and is now sitting in a jail cell w/o bail for murder?

Not to suggest Wing is as bad as someone as evil as Hernandez, but there are also stories of him beating the crap oout a kid his Sr year in HS over a girl that caused some legal issues for him. He has definitely had emotional and anger issues.

Those types usually aren't punters, he needs to get his shite together quickly




This. There are 32 spots in the NFL, most spots are full, and a large portion now share kick off duties.
No teams carry 2 and I have never seen a punter on an NFL practice squad. He has a very short window, needs to make a team this year or he will be a greeter at Outback.

Wing is a solid talent with a small brain and a big ego. I was a fan until I heard some of the stories second hand. Hopefully he grows up quick.

Hope for his sake he has a back-up plan.

Does anyone have any examples of him being a douche, and/or having a "me" mentality? Im interested.

If you are worried about posting, just preface your comment with, "well he was rumored to have...." or by saying, "this may or may not have happened, but..."

Does anyone have a gif or video of him during the shouting match with his coach? I don't remember which game it was. TIA.

Wing is battling against Donnie Jones and only one of them is making the roster so he better do all that he can
