There is no excuse to completely waste an opportunity that good teams capitalize on. When you score 16 points a game you need to take advantage of punt returns. This really pisses me off.
Agreed

Moving ARE to the slot wont increase his punt return yards. He had all last season to prove himself. Its time for some fresh legs.

I know that owners shouldn't get involved in personnel decisions but this is one time that I beg Snyder to overrule the coaches.

This is lunacy....

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Yes Hagans the local product (Out of Hampton Roads) has really good potential as a PR or might work his way into the #5 WR spot.

Cool kid, was living in Hampton for the off-season. We work out at the same gym, really nice guy. Unless you struck up a conversation with him, you would have no idea he was a Redskin or football player for that matter, of course unless you followed him through High school, College, and into the Pro's.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Randle El's average returning punts for the Steelers: 9.35 with 4 TDs

With the Redskins, it's 7.13 with only 1 TD. The blocking has to be held in account too.

What's Antonio Brown doing these days?

Going by what I've read, Hagans is making a strong push for the fifth receiver position. Maybe he'll make the team. Zorn has singled him out for praise.

Thats why i didnt want him at the 5 spot. IMO The LAST thing we need is another WR coming off of a past injury. Id rather Marko or the local boy

He hurt a finger. I haven't heard about the x-ray.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Randle El really hasn't shown me he is the man for punt returns. I'd like to see some young blood get in there. There is only one time that Hall needs to return punts or kick offs and that's when we play the ATL dirty birds. He's foaming at the mouth to do it, any other time no. Moss should get some more touches too. He knows, unlike ARE, how to take it to the house.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

I don't care what the coaches are saying, if Dorsey or Albright do any good in preseason, they will be the new returner. My figurative money is on Albright, but the only way we have ARE as returner is if every other option fails out. And that would be a very bad thing.

Holy shit dude, if Ethan Albright can beat out ARE, then we've got issues.

That would be a site to see, the red-snapper running over people on punt returns.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Danny Smith is a motivated guy and I appreciate that, but sometimes he really chaps my ass when he is too stubborn to realize that changes should probably be made at least at the PR position.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Im not the Special Teams coached just a long time DIE HARD Redskins fan. I do not want Moss or Hall returning punts unless its in the playoffs and we need a big play. If ARE doesn't improve than we need to find a Punt returner and Kickoff Returner in camp. I hope to see some new faces back there this preseason like ( Aldridge,Dorsey,Hagans, Rock,and whoever else) We don't need to have a starter back there who could get hurt. ARE doesn't have the fire anymore to return punts, cause he makes to much to get hurt in his mind.
