Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

More than a rating in Madden each year, awareness plays a role in every position on an NFL team. Shane Lechler shows you why it's important to a punter.

The punter– a man who rarely gets the respect he deserves every week. Shane Lechler knows what that's like as he's been the best player in the NFL at his position who almost nobody talks about. When his blocking broke down, and he wasn't given the time he needed to get off a solid punt it was blocked, but it gave Lechler a chance to show off his legendary awareness.
