Yay, now all of our 2nd round draft picks have made a contribution to the team. Maybe next wee we can pull them off of the "bust" bus.

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

Thrash or Malcom Kelly should get a shot.

Not a bad idea. Besides, they can only block 10 of them even if everyone makes a solid block.

Our punt block team should be:

Taylor
Fletcher
Carter
McIntosh
Sellers
Landry
Horton
F. Davis
Cartwright
Thrash
L. Alexander

Meanwhile, the punter lofts an easy pass to the gunner for a touchdown. Of coarse I recognized the sarcasm.

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

Punt returning has to be the toughest position on the field when it comes to success. You catch the ball and are a sitting duck for 10 guys going on a headhunting mission for you. Sometimes you have less than a second before getting hit.

I still think we should give someone else a chance to avoid letting our #2 WR be a target...but Randel El is not a horrible returner. That fumble yesterday was, but he can make big plays too. I don't want Moss back there. It should be someone who we can afford to lose without disrupting our offense. Thrash or Malcolm Kelly would be best.

Check out the averages from last season. Tops in the NFL was 15.4 yards and that's only because the Bills took a lot of them to the house. Most teams would love to have a 10 yard/return average.

If someone has a punter who can do that, we need to trade for him.

I really think they should give D. Thomas a shot, ARE always runs sideways like the silly crap reggie bush does I hate that little bastard. But yeah I've had it with ARE's returns.

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

d thomas was terrible doing returns in preseason. thrash or betts might be better options, or maybe a rookie db, but tryon is the only one with speed, and that's a wasted active spot on sundays... hamilton maybe? he's a 4.5 guy...

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

Thomas returned kicks in college but not punts. I don't think we need to risk our WRs any more than we have to. Zorn mentioned the possibility of working some other guys in on punt returns, but he also said he hasn't given up on ARE.

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

Also, perhaps most importantly, ARE sucks at PRs in Madden.

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

landry needs to be out there like darrell green was on the cover team. the only other redskin that may be faster is portis,and he sure as hell ain't gonna be out there.
he's the"angle"on defense,maybe he should be the angle on the punt team too.

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

I am down on ARE also...but you guys who want to throw a rookie back there are crazy. If you bench ARE then it has to be Thrash for the rest of this season and we can address a perminent replacement in the off season. I know ARE dropped one yesterday but aside from yesterday he has not been a fumbler back there and that is the most important thing. Thrash is the only other guy on the team that I trust will safely field ALL the punts.

Re: ARE: Punt Returns

Devin Thomas should return, the only way he will get better is through game time experience, if a vet is going fumble or gain no yards then why not try a rookie what do we have to loose
