Default Shon Carson at KR

Not to single a player out, but we know he's not suited for that role. Big ups to Hull and his punting though

I didn't understand that as well. First kick off I looked down from my seat and said to my wife "what the heck is he doing back there?" I thought it would be Cooper, maybe Byrd. I thought the punting was fine.

SOS said in his mid-week presser that Pharaoh had looked really good returning kicks in practice so I'm not sure why Carson was out there.

Save for a few big returns by Ellington, I think we are just doomed to never have a consistently good return game.

Cooper seems like the likely choice here.

Blows my mind. Dude has tunnel vision. Never makes a cut. I agree he is not a rb as well.

At least throw Samuel back there!!!!!!!

Cooper is the best pure playmaker we have. Don't understand why he isn't returning kicks and punts

This. We eventually put him on PR last year but it took way, way too long for us to figure that out IMO. No idea why we've decided to ignore him again.

Not trying to tear a player down, but Shon hasn't did anything since being here. Had high expectations for him when he came here, but other than one long run, I can't recall anything worth mentioning that he has done here. Need to go ahead and start grooming David Williams and drop Carson.

This! Normally you put the fastest guy on KR so naturally I would expect Byrd or Cooper.

Lol Byrd is not the returning type. They probably reduced Cooper's role on returns because he's our starting WR.

What about Deebo Samuel? Wasn't he practicing at KR/PR in camp?

Ace Sanders and Bruce Ellington returned kicks during their time here

Surprise not to see Whitehurst, Cooper or Jones take a turn back there.

Can David Williams catch?

I don't get why they keep pushing Carson so much. I haven't seen anything from him really. Granted he's had injuries, but I don't know, I'm just not sold on him.
