View Full Version : Interesting Kicking Stats

Well was up late couldn't sleep and found these stats, might be boring but good to see.

1. Daniel Sepulveda has 7 punts and 5 are inside the 20, only 1 being fair caught and non returned...Definetely winning in field position.

2. Jeff Reed is 100% accurate on 6 field goals and also has the most kickoffs in AFC, and the best is that 3 were touchbacks!

I like how the kicking tandem is starting!

I wasn't so sure when we drafted sepulveda but after watching him play it was one of our better picks.

I think Reed might be taking HGH (just kidding). He seems to be getting it in the end zone on kickoffs alot more this year than all of last year. Last year the returner looked like he was receiving the ball at or around the ten.

Isn't it great to see special teams actually help us win this season instead of losing the game...what a difference.

Jeff Reed is kicking better because he cut his dang troll hair!

(at least thats my theory)

Sepulveda is the steelers best draft for need pick in the last decade. It seems like Tomlin focuses on special teams and doesn't just find people off the street or trade for has beens like cowher did. The reason reed is doing better on kickoffs is very simple...PRACTICE!

I think Brian Moorman will go again, he's just too good, but in a few years when Moorman's production starts to go down we'll see our very own Sep in the pro bowl

tell me about it. It just shows you how imortant speacail teams is.
Since are O and D have been playin so good basically all the speacail teams needs to do is not blow the game.

It is kind of nice not to grimace when the kicking team runs on the field......a great change from last year....Hopefully Jeff keeps it up into January.

Do you guys think Cowher had Reed kick it short over the years to try to cover up our poor special teams. You know, short of there best return guys.

Just wondering?

I think Tomlin just made Reed work harder and made him more accountable.....We knew he always had a beast leg....I never heard in the past few years that they really worked on special teams that much....
