New Orleans Saints mailbag for Sept. 24, part 2

Another round of mailbag questions for you. Here is part 1 from earlier today.

I'm fresh out of new queries for this week, so if you have any new questions send them to And remember to include your name and place of residence. We need those for publication. I'll answer them on Friday.

Q: Thomas Morstead quietly had a fantastic performance with the kickoffs in the opener against Detroit. What have you thought of his performance so far? Wesley Neil Barbaree, Baton Rouge.

A: Morstead has kicked off extremely well for the Saints. In two games, he’s sent 14 of 17 kickoffs inside the opponents’ 5-yard. The Eagles’ average start after a kickoff was their own 27. The Lions started on average at their own 31. Both numbers were skewed by big kickoff returns. Morstead did shank a kickoff out of bounds last week but all but one of his other nine kickoffs landed inside the Eagles’ 5-yard line or in the end zone.
