Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

you guys make me laugh. the same guys that cry for Moss or Hall to return punts are the same guys that will want Zorn fired if they get hurt back there. i think im in the minority , but i think A.R.E is OK back there. its the blocking. maybe time for a coaching ( Smith) change

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

From what I understand Aldridge and Dorsey have really been struggling so far in camp, especially Dorsey

On another special teams note, Hunter Smith looks like a great pickup

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Sounds like the coaches are evaluating other guys but someone will need to step up in the preseason and take the job. Until then, ARE is the guy that is penciled in.

I do agree that if ARE moves to the slot and sees less snaps on offense he will be more fresh for returns so it's always possible that move could help. We'll see.

I don't think I heard Aldridge was struggling. The coaches like his speed, and quickness. Dorsey has missed 2 practices so it's not looking good for him.

Thought I heard they both had some bad fumbles

It's possible Dorsey and Alridge were confused and it was just Alridge that had the fumble, not Dorsey

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Alridge has had a couple of nice runs where his speed was evident also.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

I almost choked on my breakfast when I read this. My man A.R.E. must have some very compromising pictures of Danny Smith.

Yeah I agree. Problem here is two fold. You take Santana Moss out of our already suspect passing game, and the offense simply dies. Same thing with Hall. Hall needs TO be in the secondary And HEALTHY. I don't really know what the answer is, Randle El has struggle din returns since getting here. But, I don't think Hall and Moss are every return answers.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

This article isn't exactly a ringing endorsement of Randle El.

It's clear the coaches know there is a problem and they are evaluating others. The tough thing is you don't want to put it all on guys that are far more valuable in their full-time positions like Moss or Hall.

So it sounds like ARE as the primary guy and a committee approach for big situations is the best possible solution for now.

It would be nice if someone stepped up but guys like Alridge and Dorsey are long shots to make the team to begin with.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

I hope Danny Smith is blowing smoke to try and motivate Antwaan Randle El but I would like to see a new returner. I am sick and tired of seeing Randle El do a two-step and fall every punt return. It was quite obvious to me that it is not the blocking scheme because when Santana Moss was inserted, he busted off big runs. I really do not want to see Santana Moss returning punts, not unless it's the playoffs. Same goes for DeAngelo Hall. Both of these guys are too important at their respective positions. We need someone to step up and assume this role and bust off runs like Moss and Hall. I'm happy with Rock Cartwright as primary kick returner.

Re: Randle El will still be our primary punt returner

Well, at least D. Hall or Moss won't get hurt on punt returns. Think of it this way, if we lose a WR on special teams due to injury, we can live without having ARE, right? Better than losing Moss or Thomas...or D. Hall from defense.

Well, it looks now like Roydell might even miss the entire preseason so if that's the case he's as good as gone. And then the question is-does someone like Hagans, Mitchell, or Eloi take the #5 WR spot (and conceivably, particularly in Hagans' case, also serve as the punt returner...or do we give DJ Hackett another call?
