Default A NEW BREED OF PUNTER

I can't tell you all how excited I am to watch what plays that coach Tomlin designs around Sepulveda. This guy is going to revolutionize the Punter position with his speed, athleticism, kicking ability and size! Opposing teams need to beware on 4th and 1 or 4th and 2 when they are facing a punter with this kind of ability. With his speed he can easily pick up 2 or 3 yards by faking the punt and sprinting to the sideline. If defenses try to plan for the fake punt, this kid can flat-out boot the football 60+ yards and bury an offense deep in their own territory. Also, I have heard rumor that he may in fact handle kickoff duties this year. Thank God for small favors, I was so disgusted every game last year with our weak leg on kickoffs! How many times did we allow the opposition to start their drives on the 35 - 40 yard line?!? Kudos to the Steelers GM for having the vision and clairvoyance to trade up in the 4th round of the 2007 draft to select this young man. Welcome to the finest football team on planet earth, Dan Sepulveda! Here's wishing you the best of luck this season and by the way you may want to keep your calendar clear in late February for a trip to Hawaii!!!!!!!!! STAND UP AND WAVE THOSE YELLOW TOWELS!

Call me crazy, but I don't like the idea of exposing a punter on some stupid trick plays.

I think it would be great to see some trickery at Punter. A team has FOUR downs to get to the chains. A guy like Sepulveda may completely change the way people look at punting on that final down.

I definately see a future in this kid. If he goes on to revolutionize the punter's position it wouldn't surprise me. But I'm getting a little ahead for such a young guy

Hopefully the aussie rules style drop punt will cause some fumbles this year.

The end over end style kick will unsettle some guys. Darren Bennett was the first ex aussie rules player to incorporate this kick into his arsenal. I think our guy will cause similar problems by varying the rotation of the ball.

My question is Does he have the leg strength we need on kick off? Is he possbily an option over Reed?

He has GREAT leg strength from what I understand. What I worry about though, is that kickoff and punting are two different things... just because one can punt well doesn't mean one can kick well.
