I wasn't there...but basing off of the information on the site...apparently they did remarkably well...at least Saurbraun and Ernster did. Neither punted less than 48 yards; which is great in of itself.

Sauerbraun punted an average of 51.7 yds in 6 punts with a long of 58
&
Ernster punted an average of 55.0 yds in 5 punts with a long of 64.

Of course without any hard math, we can't determine standard deviation; how consistent they were. Ernster could've had a 48 and two 50's and then suddenly a 63 and 64; while Sauerbraun could've had a 48, three 50's, a 54 and a 58. In this case Sauerbraun is more consistent, while Ernster can be said to have a higher range.

However, without doin any real hard statistical math, nothing is a guarantee...What I can say is...WOW ...we got our selves a pair of punters who can rocket that ball. We can't go that far wrong with a punters who can consistently punt up here over 50 yards. :cheers: cheers to our special teams. And this was only day one of training camp...

Not necessarily...Ernster does have very many different capabilities allowing for him to be a replacement down the line for either Sauerbraun or Elam. Regardless; I think we'll be keepin both at least through this season. So then if we ultimately keep only one; we'll have at least some sort of trade bait to other teams. Especially if Sauerbraun keeps his nose clean.
