In American football, I think the whole punt team, especially the punter, are underappreciated, because they’re associated with failure; they’re only on the field because the offense hasn’t doesn’t its job.

It’s just my impression, but it seems to me that football commentators and fans are more aware of the importance of the offensive line than in years past; I hear the guys on the sports-talk stations talking about the OL almost as much as the running backs or secondary. When I first started following football in the 80s, the only offensive lineman whose name I knew was Mike Webster.
