    IF…that was truly the cause…he had every opportunity in the world to walk down the hall and inform team doctors and trainers. Since I’m not aware of any other such claims with any named sports drink…I am inclined to think he is lying…to save his career.

    Sure Michael! If only Richard Pryor hadn’t dipped his cookies in the milk, then……… #lol

    When in Tampa don’t drink the water!

    Sure Michael. We believe you. You’ve been on the chopping block for years and one of the worst and most overpaid punters in the league since Dominik signed you to that contract. But now that you’ve been cut and are a free agent you’ve figured out the reason you were so bad all of this time. The past 3 years wasn’t enough time for you?

    Gotta love agents. “Hey it’s the moldy water that is why my client couldn’t kick well!” LOL!

    Apparently the water he drank only affected Koenen on punts and not kickoffs. Which is why he continued to be our primary kickoff guy. #Gohomeagentyouredrunk

    Does anybody else remember when we had just finished a 10-6 season and barely missed the playoffs with a very young team? And we had the most cap room of any team in the league and our only free agent we brought in was this guy. I hated that offseason then, and I hate it even more now.

    Who is punting Now!

    1. 7.1


      George, Jacob Schum is the punter.

    Assuming this is true (which I don’t) was the sports drink bottled or in a cooler. He states when he went home he would drink it all the time so I am going to see assume it was in a bottle. Don’t see him lugging home a full cooler of the stuff.
    If that’s the case, he needs to sue the manufacturer.
    My question is did he start drinking it last year when his punting started to get really putrid.
