Default Re: Sepuvelda sucks, and so does Randle el!

Sepuvelda had a great game against the Raiders! Even on the touchback he put the ball in good position to be downed, it just took a funny bounce away from the gunner. I don't know what got into him? Maybe Reed getting cut sent Dan a message? Maybe the special teams coach asked him to reach deeper? Maybe going up against Shane Lechler brought out the best in him? Whatever it was, I hope it continues through the season.

Is it me or do most of his punts go in the end zone? We hardly ever pin a team deep.

Default Re: Sepuvelda sucks, and so does Randle el!

again i bring this up...

dans specialty in college was that he was supposedly a master of the "aussi roll", a technique where you punt the ball and instead of it rolling into the endzone when it hits the 5 it bounces backwards, staying in the field of play.

he hasnt pulled off this much hyped manuver a single time in the nfl.

wtf happened? was it just a legend or myth concocted by an agent who would also sell that he could be a back up linebacker?

Cool Re: Sepuvelda sucks, and so does Randle el!

Sepulveda, I'm completely cool with. I know what with him punting, there are 11 people on the field that will make a tackle. Jeff Reed needed a cape and a Spanish accent. ( Olé! ) ~40 is perfectly acceptable in terms of just over 1 yard difference, on average. Let's hope he doesn't blow out both hammies. We've seen that before.

ARE is WAS. Has been. Mediocre-if-best WR that should be playing QB in the Arena Football League (is that even still around?) Never liked the signing and want to see 5 wide All. The. Time. when behind : Wallace, Ward, Miller, Sanders, & Brown. Not sure it could be stopped with a "okay guys, this is the coverage they're showing, get open" mentality in a hurry-up, no huddle offense.

Maybe I play too much Madden and love the dink-and-dunk.

Fire Arians.

As you were.

His average punt is 45.8, which is 6th in the league, and certainly more than acceptable. He's kicked zero out-of-bounds, which is what is asked of him (I don't know why that's what's asked of him, but there you have it.) None of his punts have been returned for TDs, which is partly a credit to him.

We can move on to another topic. Like Arians.

Notice where Sepuvelda stands on punts inside the the 20, way down the list tied for 23rd. Now look at touchbacks, tied for second most aka second worst with 6. That's what seperates the men from the boys when it comes to punters, and Dan is below average so far this year.
Really, you're just being greedy.

Let's be glad the Steelers' defense is better than that of most the league. It all cancels out to me. Let the teams with average-to-below-average defenses have the punter that kicks 50+ yards per punt and can down it inside the 10 80% of the time. They're giving up more yards on average anyway.

At the risk of giving this thread too much legitimacy, I just wanted to add that he's also second in the league in the number of punts being fair caught. Not bad.

not bad at all.

but in fairness to the legitimacy of this thread, why will nobody address the phantom "aussi roll"?

Is it anything like a dinner roll? Bankroll? Drum roll? Fat lady in spandex showing off her rolls?

I remember the hype, and I think it was all part of trying to justify drafting him.

I think this is the Aussie Roll:

It has something to do with celebrating Australia Day while visiting Sweden. And drinking. A lot of drinking.
