Just when I thought the punting couldn't get any worse!

Discussion in 'PatsFans.com - Patriots Fan Forum' started by HEY BRO! WHAT UP?, Dec 24, 2006.

  1. Saurbraun was horrible today. His first punt was 20 yards yet got a little better during the game but saying that is a stretch. I guess you can attribute the steriod use to Saurbraun's punting abilities when he was a pro bowl player. However, I will give him the benefit of the doubt because it was a wet game and maybe, maybe the ball was slipping off of his leg. The Jaguars punter didn't do much better as well. Hopefully thing will get better next week.

    Sauerbrun was bad today. Hopefully it was the wet ground and a lack of ability to really plant his plant foot. If not . . . :eek:

    Patience. They did put on a decent rush.

    We had one critical point where he had to punt from deep in our territory late in the game. 42 yds. net. fair catch.

    You want an 18 yarder from Walter in that situation?

    I saw the title of this thread and I thought archives was the new punter.

    That is true, those are the situations where Walter scared the bajeezus out of me. I'll take a little less direction on an attempted pooch if he can consistently get 40+ net when we need a long one.

    and the first punt was from mid field so he was probably trying to pin the ball between the endzone and the 10 yard line and didnt work out...i guess we need to see more of him before saying he is walter...
    if walter was punting from near endzone after the pats last possesion, i think the jags wouldve been in FG range to tie the game to start their possesion !!

    Honestly, at this point, as long as the FG holds are good, do we really F-ing care?

    He only punted for Denver for a year or two, his average was just as good for his other teams.

    All you have to do is look at his record to know that. 3 pro bowls.

    He has problems of his own, but he's pretty much the opposite of Ken Walter.

    Hard to imagine Walter tackling somebody hard enough to force a fumble.

    I'm no football coach, but his technique looked horrendous.

    I'm no football coach either.

    Do you think a veteran steps differently when the field's wet?
