Santana Moss: Punt Returner
 
I'm all for it. I say let's put him back there for the majority of punt returns. He's the most dangerous PR on our team and one of the best in the league if given the opportunity. The object is to win the game, so let's throw it all out there. Our offense was one of the worst in the NFL last year. What do we have to lose?

Thoughts?

then he pulls his hammy, and is half speed the rest of the season. brilliant. if we make it to the playoffs, that's a different story. and your going to get yelled at. this was discussed in another thread

Not worth the risk. Put him back there in big situations but definitely not full time.

Agreed. He can spark us when we need him to but not full time. We need him full speed and injury free.

Part time yes, full time no way. Moss is our only true threat at WR. With Malcolm Kelly now our #2, (also susceptible to frequent injury), we can't afford to lose Moss. We all know he gets nicked up throughout the year without returning punts. I say put Devin Thomas back there and see what he can do. He's the best option right now in that he's #4 on the depth chart (soon #5 once Marko fully emerges) so he'll see less action on offense than the other 3.

Here's another idea...alternate D Hall and Moss on punt returns...both are speedsters and both have experience back there....just kidding.

I'm just glad football is back!! HAIL TO THE REDSKINS!!

Personally I'd like to see what Devin Thomas can do returning punts.

I agree...put Devin back there, especially since he may be feeling a little left out since Malcom jumped over him to take the #2 spot.

We could trade Portis and a 1st rounder for Devin Hester

I think this is a good idea. I don't think the likelihood of Moss getting injured goes up by much for returning 5 punts a game and if he can return a few, then it will probably get us another win or two with our defense.

It would be fun to have him back there, but it would be a big risk. Maybe if Kelly starts killing it at wr and Devin or Mitchell steps up, we can afford to throw Tana back there. The Lions would have been 1-15 last year if not for his return.

Put him back there. He's not exactly a spring chicken anymore, so why not get the most out of him? If he gets hurt then we activate Marko Mitchell. Santana will not have to worry about dropping passes and punching people with helmets on returning punts. If he's not there when we make the play offs, then he'll not be there to give up on plays.

My thought are this: we're not a stellar team or a play-off team, so why not try to be? We've depth at WR so why not? How about making the play-offs, not sneaking our way in? If he gets hurt eff it. No team should be dependant on one or two guys, IE Moss and CP.

Risk vs. reward. Maybe we'll be able to get RE to start running N-S as opposed to E-W. Our passing game is suspect at best, Moss gets hurt and it's null and void. Think long and hard about what you're suggesting.

Re: Santana Moss: Punt Returner
 
Devin should be the full time guy and maybe mix Moss in once in a long while. I don't understand why ARL still gets the duty. I mean Devin's biggest problem as a WR is route running and creating space, but once the pigskin is in his hand's dude has mad skills and runs really hard. Basically I'm just perplexed Zorn isn't doing everything he can to get Devin more opportunities...we know what ARL can do.

I thought this was a thread saying Moss was the actual PR for us. Misleading thread title!
Moss is NOT a wise decision for PR duty cause he is too valuable to us as a WR and he is always someone that tweeks something. No doubt he would get hurt too quickly if he did that.
I certainly agree that ARE should be benched for his pathetic PR "skills", and I'm all for putting just about anyone in there other than ARE.

The only thing I like about RE as a punt returner is, he will catch the ball. I don't have to hold my breath wondering whether or not he's going to catch it.
