Someone tell Todd Sauerbrun not to open his mouth before any games every again. This week before their game against the Bears, the Broncos kicker was quoted saying “We’re not going to kick away from [Devin Hester], we respect him and he’s the best but we have guys our our coverage teams that are paid to make big tackles.”
So they decided to challenge Hester. I guess they forgot about him with all the talk about Josh Cribbs and Leon Washington this season. Big mistake. Heres what happened when they punted to him.
That was Saurbrun on the ground that he leaped over. Nice view. So Hester’s gotta be tired right? No way he could do it again right? Wrong.
After that you have to think that he learned his lesson so he tried to punt it away from Hester, only to have his punt blocked by Charles Tillman to set up the Bears for another score in their improbably comeback win against the Broncos. Better luck next time Todd
Sauerbrun, who was originally drafted by the Bears, bought 40 tickets for family and friends. They got to watch him have one of the worst games you could ever imagine for a kicker.
