    Re: Broncos sign Saurbrun

    I think we're going with Miller, the RoFR probably protected them in case Miller wasn't healthy. I think we've seen the last of Todd. He was a good pickup though.

    Donkees will have cemented themselves as the SB favorite with this pick-up.

    Like I have said in the past, I'm tired of the Pats helping out our foes. Match the offer and carry 3 kickers into camp.

    The point is this I like Sauerbrun better than Miller and if Shakenbake wants him he sees the value too. IMO opinion Sauerbrun helps us and keeping him from the Donks hurts them.

    I'm going to assume you're joking with this one.

    Meh, Miller has a damn good leg without the baggage, either.

    Sauerbrun had some really nice kicks, I want him as our punter.

    Why would you like Sauerbrun better than Miller? Miller is a much better punter than Sauerbrun.

    What are you using as your gauge to say that Sauerbrun has a better leg? The stats don't support it.

    I feel we're too old and unathletic at punter. We need some young studs.

    Wasn't he whining last year about wanting to go back to Denver? I don't want anyone playing here who doesn't want to be here.

    Re: Broncos agree to contract with Saurbrun; Pats have 7 days to match

    Que? Much better?

    Career numbers

    Miller:
    43.1 average
    35.9 net average
    247 kicks inside the 20
    101 touchbacks (which isn't a good thing)

    Sauerbrun:
    44.0 average
    36.0 net average
    250 kicks inside the 20
    102 touchbacks


    I'm not going to stand here and say that Sauerbrun is the much better punter either. I do however prefer Sauerbrun's leg strength over Miller's.

    Miller is a pretty gregarious guy, who gets along well in this framework.. so I vote for Miller.

    The real question is, who's the better holder?
