Robopunter? Not according to the stats.

Sitting in the stands before the Bengals game I saw one of the most amazing football displays ever, Dan Sepulveda warming up.  Each and every punt seemed to fly sixty yards in the air, and those that didn't were perfectly placed inside the ten yard line, it was awesome. But after watching that game in person, and the Chiefs game on TV, especially the touchback in overtime, I thought that maybe we might be giving Robopunter too much credit for his game performances.

Here are the stats:     2007-42.4 yards/punt avg. -18th in the NFL-(rookie year)

                                     2008-41.3 yards/punt avg.-Mitch Berger (fans pounded on him all year)

                                     2009-43.7 yards/punt avg.-19th in the NFL

Wow, less than 2.5 yards different per punt than Berger?

Is his "robopunter" nickname deserved?  Statistically he is the definition of mediocrity, is it his physique and practice kicks that have endeared him to fans?  Was the 4th round pick used on him justified?  I don't know, just curious what 'yall think?
