  1. Ray Guy is the best punter of all time. This young man may change that fact before he’s done with his career. He is that good.

  2. Punters and especially kickers are sooo underrated. Everyone laughed when Al Davis selected players like Ray Guy and Sebastian Janakowski. We know Guy was a HOFer and Seabass was awesome too and for a long time. Dickson has the chance to be great too. Good for both sides.

  3. As mentioned above, Dickson’s name is right at home alongside the best punters to ever boot it. Sooooo glad the Seahawks got this done. I’ve lost count how many times this guy has set the ball down right on the one yard line in clutch situations. Many times, the special teams guys don’t even need to touch the ball down. It’s just a beautiful thing to watch.

  4. Dickson bailed Seattle out many times over the last few years…Seattle’s offense would stall and Dickson would put the defense back in a reasonable position again….
