As Tony said...this is a great point. Very insightful. I think that everyone who is on the Andy Lee bandwagon needs to look at the very telling fact that he has had to punt 60 times compared to Sepulveda's 38.

And THAT is the key stat - not net average. He was booming 55-60 yarders consistently in preseason when the games didn't count. The kid has plenty of leg strength.

we REALLY ONLY PUNTED 38 TIMES?

Wow. That is a great stat. you realize that means we only punted, about 2.5 times a game. That is not bad at all.

Not only that, but how many times did Sep. have to RUSH his punt because of people coming in. There was a number of times he was almost blocked...

Once again, it rests with the line... yeah, the punting line is different... but it means we have some real issues with the line coaching.

Actually Preacher, we only punted 38 times up through mid-late November.

I'm of the opinion he's done a phenomenal job this year, and one of the best in the game at his position. His stats don't do him the justice his efforts have deserved, because the coverage team around him has been abysmally bad.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't his punt at the end of the game towards the open end of the stadium? That's right into the wind, so keeping it low was by design, I'm sure. Going 3 & out forcing him to punt with that much time left in the game was the real issue.

Sadly, I must admit that from the middle of the season on, quite on my own, I started saying that he'd never had a punt blocked. That never fails to get a chuckle from anyone I'm talking to who's a fellow Steelers fan, but I have to say, it's a little upsetting that I'd ever think that every time we punt.
