Miami Dolphins' punter Reggie Roby led the NFL in net average at 38.1 yards, but Coach Don Shula always thinks he can do better. Roby: "Every time I come off the field, he'll say something to me, and it's always negative--even on good kicks. If I had a chance to kick it 70 yards and I kick it 60, he'll yell at me. He'll tell me, 'You almost let this guy or that guy block it.' "He's just trying to keep me on my toes. He just wants me to be the best punter I can be."
