Default Will Sepulveda actually hurt our defense?

Granted our punting was attrocious last year but it did keep the field relatively short for our defense.

Now with a longer field to work with, our defense might not be as potent because they will be on the field longer and thus tire out more easily. It will come down to our back-ups to play well to win many games this year.

Don't get me wrong, I am thankful Sepulvida is back but he does outkick our coverage and will give the oppents an opportunity to run one back. Our punt coverage last year was awesome becuse the punting was so bad.

Is this post a joke or a stab at sarcasm. I do hope you are not serious asking this question.

That makes no sense at all bro. Your saying that making the field shorter so the opposing offense scores quicker helps our defense stay fresh?

I'm not trying to jump on you, but this is BASIC football. Field position wins football games. The longer the other team has to go in order to score the better.

The object of the defense is to stop the offense period. If there successful on a long field, our offense will have a shorter distance to travel to the endzone. If the defense is successful on a shorter field, our offense will have further to travel to the endzone.

If the defense is unsuccessful, the opposing offense will score. However, if Sepulveda gives us a nice long field to work with. We will have more opportunities to hold the opposing offense from scoring, because they will need to convert more first downs. That also gives us more opportunity for turnovers.

So, long story short. Having Sepulveda back is the best thing that has happened to the Steelers this off season.

I can't believe I wrote that much in response to this question :)

Even James Farrior hinted at this after the game.

See that's the thing about "I told ya so's" You put something out there that most people don't agree with and if it never comes to fruition it is forgotten about. However, you can bring it up again if it does come to pass and look like Nostradamus.

This has to be one of the most moronic posts I have ever read.
