Every time there's a vote on the numbers, we are subjected to seeing a name blotted out because of the words we all remember "wide left." In reviewing the post & comments, there was a blatant ommission and I believe a "re-vote" is in order.

Consideration should also be given to 5 year veteran (has it really been that long?) Dustin Farr Colquitt. Colquitt is known for putting a spin on the ball, making his punts hard to catch.
His Wikipedia page is brief but interesting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dustin_Colquitt
Colquitt comes from a distinguished lineage of punters in the Colquitt family, including his father Craig, who won a pair of Super Bowl rings punting for the Pittsburgh Steelers (’78-84). His younger brother, Britton, currently punts for Tennessee, and was a pre-season all-conference pick by some experts. Has a two sons Brinkley and Colston with wife, Christia.
His Chiefs bio has a lot of interesting stats:
