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.

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.

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.

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.

That's probably only because Davis was out.

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

If the blocking doesn't improve and we don't get another Ace Sanders who can make up for it, you're right on about that.
