Default Re: Steelers get big kick out of special teams

Actually Reed has been inconsistent the past few year. There have been plenty of end zone kickoffs, but not enough. I agree not letting the opponent start on the 30-35 is excellent. Kicking is like a golf swing. Relax and just let it happen and the ball goes a lot farther than when you try to kill it.

Sepulveda is one of the best pickups we made if he pans out. I like his upside for sure.

I am most excited about Rossum. Someone who actually catches the ball before taking off is much better than the circus we had back there last year. If he never runs one back at all, it is better having the ball on offense than being on defense deep in the opponent's red zone. It still steams me thinking about that Bengal game last year.

I am so excited for this season. Can't wait to get to the Broncos and Pats and Ravens and Bengals games to see what we are really made of.

I heard at one time, and always thought that he had the leg but Cowher didn't want him to put int in the endzone, just as close to it as possible!

Yep... Just line up to the ball... smooth backswing, proper body motion as you swing towards the ball.... a little needle in the butt... and through the ball!!



Really.. I don't know. At this point, I am just happy that he is putting the ball deeper.
