i am in complete agreement his goal should not be getting the ball inside the 20... he's too talented for that... next season he should be consistently getting the ball inside the 10..

Well shoot- why don't we go for the gusto here and demand that he put 'em inside the 1? Yes, he is talented and as I said earlier - for a rookie punter, I thought he did pretty darned good all things considered.

I'm guessing that he hit the rookie wall. He probably has never kicked so much in his life. He needs to build up some more stamina to continue those booming kicks throughout the season.

HTG, all I wanted was a Steelers' style clutch kick, maybe with that roll that everyone was talking about; something that bounced around and stopped at about the 20 or so. Make the Jags use some downs and some time, give the D more than one set of chances.

Not what you said - you said he should have punted it into the endzone. We were on our own 27 when the punt was made = 73-yard+ punt, as he actually kicked it from about the 20.

I thought he had pretty good hang time on the majority of his punts, as well. Unfortunately, with the lackluster play of our ST's, his stats suffered.
Definantly. It's unfortunate that it had to happen. But when you have no coverage unit that can not consistantly help you, bad things are going to happen.

If anything he should have booted the ball into the end zone. You just can't give the opponent that kind of FP when the game is on the line. We can't blame the Defense; they played their hearts out.
An injury-riddled defense played as well as you can expect, but if you give the ball to Jacksonville at their 49 with about 2:30 to go, and all the weapons they posses, you are bound to get scored on.

Dan got his butt kicked by the punter who was drafted ahead of him.
Podlesh had 3 50 yard plus kicks in the game (50, 54,58). << Because of that I think the game stats have is avg kick distance incorrect.

Check this link and here is what you will find. (put http in front of the sentence below to get the link. this forum will not let me add a link here until I have made 25 posts).

://profootballexperts.scout.com/a.z?s=211&p=9&c=12&yr=2007&nid=83&lnid=124&rc=4&pid=88&pg=5

2007 Draft Projected Actual
Podlesh 97 101 << Jags got a small value pick
Sepulveda 222 112 << We traded up for a big time reach

Podlesh is the real deal and he showed it in the game. I have not been impressed with Sepulveda's distance at all this year. He definitely has not demonstrated that he was worth trading up for and he has had plenty of opportunity to show it. I will give him a pass if he has some type of injury. He lost 1 OT game with a line drive kick. What was up with that?????
