Default Kick Off Return Man

I don't think we're going to miss Ace as much as we thought we were this year, because our Defense looks like they're going to give up yardage/points in the red zone.

Kick Off return should be a priority on this Bye week.

I say work a few other guys in there, maybe in the form of Shamier Jeffrey or Kane Whitehurst.

Spurrier looks like he's going to have a short leash for WRs this year, as he hasn't gone back to either Jeffrey or Whitehurst since they respectively ran the wrong route and missed a wide open opportunity (Jeffrey) and had a dropped TD pass (Whitehurst- UGA game)

They were high on Jeffrey's athletic progress in the off season but he's not turned the corner like Shaq Roland has.

We need to be explosive on Kick Returns with a young/developing defense, I believe. Thoughts?

Gotta think they will give P. Cooper a shot. Maybe Whitehurst as well. I could see Bruce doing it again but I doubt they will want him handling both.

So maybe Cooper on PR and Bruce on KR would work best.

I don't care if Brandon Shell is returning kickoffs as long as it isn't Carson, I'll be fine. I saw where they put Bruce in there after Carson's fumble. That's a good option.

Whitehurst is our man next season, but he'd make mistakes or get hurt for now.

I say for now take a knee or let that baby roll right out the back of the end zone. The 25 yard line is not a bad place to start a drive. Until something changes, that would be the best bet.

Call me crazy, but what about Jimmy Legree? He's got great hands, and he always finds a hole after an interception...maybe it can translate to KR/PR? I don't know, but I wouldn't mind having a veteran guy back there.

For the same reason Vic doesn't need to be back returning punts.

Christian nor McWilliams have done anything to lead me to beleive we should gamble with either of our starting corners.

Speaking of which. Has the kid from Spartan high played any yet at corner?

If we can't win the game on the kickoff return...... fine! Not sure if we have EVER been good returning kickoffs that I can remember! Anybody?

That being said, if you know going in you can't win here, you better damned sure make the conscious decision that you won't lose the game here either!

We need to eliminate the turnover in the kicking game, should never happen!

If its up to me, I'd have Bruce handling kickoff's........ even punt's if he is up to it!

whoever it is I want them to be able to hold onto the ball. we cannot give an opponent great field position due to a fumble within the twenty-five yard line.
