Looks like Dr. D is right (had to admit I needed to look it up). That must have been a windy day and good roll.

I'd have guessed Ray Guy with Oakland myself. The greatest punter of all time. Don't believe it? Read these stats:

-First Pure Punter Drafted in the 1st Round (23rd player overall).
-Played in seven Pro Bowls (six consecutively) - most ever for a punter!
-Played in seven AFC Championship Games.
-Played in three Super Bowl wins punting 14 times (tied for 3rd for most Super Bowl punts in a career) including a 41.9 average (3rd highest average recorded for a career).
-Led NFL in Punting three times.
-NFL Postseason Record for most punts in a career with 111 punts.
-NFL Postseason Record for Highest Punting Average in a game with 56.0 average.
(This record includes a 71yard punt - the 3rd Longest Postseason punt in NFL history).
-Pro Bowl Record for most punts in a career with 33 punts.
-First Pure Punter Nominated for Pro Football Hall of Fame.
-Listed as one of 300 Greatest Players in NFL History by the Official Encyclopedia of the National Football League – Total Football II.
-First Punter to win the Golden Toe Award (presented by Pro Football Weekly).
-“Hang-time” came into the NFL lexicon during his tenure. One of his punts hit the hanging scoreboard in the Louisiana Superdome. Another was tested for “helium!”
-Doubled as teams’ emergency quarterback with strong, accurate passing arm.
-Never missed a game (Played in 207 consecutive games in 14 year career).
-No blocked kicks in his first five NFL seasons. Had only three of 1049 punts blocked in his career. (Finished career with streak of 619 unblocked boots.)
-Placed an astonishing 57 punts inside 20-yard line during 1984-85 seasons.
-Averaged under 40 yards per punt only once in entire career. (42.4 career average).
Thank God for Football Season.

The Hall of Fame will never be complete without Ray Guy's bust somewhere in it's building.

Actually, I think I got the answer wrong. If I recall, Randall Cunningham had a 99 yard punt for the Eagles.

Scratch that last answer, my original answer is right. I just looked it up and it was indeed Steve O'Neal of the NY Jets.
