    Does anyone remember Kapinos punting for the Packers in 09? He was the absolute worst punter in the NFL. His net average was 34 yards. Not to mention opponents averaging 14 yards a return because he was so terrible at kicking where his coverage units were. And in the 4 games he played for the Steelers last year, his net average was 32 yards. I don't see where everyone is getting this notion that he's going to be so much better than Sepulveda.

    Sep's net average is around 41 yards a punt this season. If Kapinos gets anywhere close to that, then maybe we can talk.

    I was surprised they gave him his job back this season. Kapinos out performed him in camp and preseason, and I really thought they would be leary of giving Danny another shot given his past injuries. I supposed based on the diagnosis from the last surgery that he had less of a chance to get injured now but his knees are just shot. He'll play out his deal this year, and ride off into the sunset.

    He's such a great guy though, the fans like him, he's always personable in training camp with autographs and everything. Such a shame.

    Preseason this year when both were going against each other:

    Avg Net Yards Per Punt:
    Kapinos 49.8
    Sepulveda 45.7

    Now yes it's preseason but that's the only time these 2 have gone against each other recently. Both were fresh, healthy, and fighting for a job. I realize last year Kapinos wasn't the greatest but in the middle of the season it's slim pickings. There isn't much better right now either so we might as well get behind him and see what he can do.

    Preseason is one thing, high pressure situations when you're punting from inside your own endzone is another. We'll see how he does but IMO, everyone is hyping this guy up way too much.
