Default Why Can't We Have Designated Kick Returner??

I may be missing something... Why not have a player whose sole job is to return kickoffs and punt returns. Someone with great eyes, speed, hands and cut ability. I pretty sure we could find someone on the roster that can fit that bill.

I say let the Rhodes kid do it. He took one last night and went right up the gut with it.

Going from things I heard in pre-season and camp, the whole team were world beaters.....until we played someone.

Anyone else notice that Cooper still doesn't know where to line up on punt returns? Every time he goes out the coaches have to direct him back on where to stand. I just don't know why that part is so complicated.

Not so sure we need anybody to return punts but we may be fielding a lot of Kickoff Returns.

Yes, I saw that. He kept lining up 15-20 yards too shallow. The first time it took someone a while to get his attention.

Apparently, the defense had a good preseason too. Guess we decided not to play our best kick returner or defense last night.

The D (up front) will come around in time, I'm not too worried in that respect. We need to make adjustments in other areas e.g. Special teams and secondary.
