That's why I'm so excited about Bobby April. If he can't do that for us, maybe no one can.

Kick returns for scores or blocked punts? In Bobby April's world, such things exist.

Re: Coaching Staff update

Bobby April was the special teams coordinator for Buffalo from 2004 until they cleaned house this week. He has also been special teams coordinator for the Saints, Steelers, and Rams. His Bills special teams especially have been quite good and he is considered to be one of the top special teams gurus out there.

Looks like he moves every 3 or so years. Wonder what that's about.

April left the Steelers to join his hometown Saints (he's from the N.O. suburb of Chalmette)
He left the Saints in the housecleaning when Ditka was removed
He was fired from the Rams
He was at Buffalo for a while, during which time he won NFL Special Teams Coordinator of the Year. He left Buffalo as part of their housecleaning.

Re: Coaching Staff update

Bobby April has been around with many teams, I believe his longest tenure was with the Falcons. Another good special teams coach is available, Al Everest who has also been around the block. The 49ers just fired him.

Ok I'm confused. Everest is supposed to be good but he just got hired by San Fran in 2007 and now is getting fired? If he's so good why would they fire him?

Name me one ST coach who hasn't been fired? This guy has 36 years experience coaching and has always had pretty good special teams, he was with the Cardinals for many years.

Re: Coaching Staff update

I heard someone saying guys like Shanny and BA acquire players with ST's in mind. Danny Smith might not be the problem.

I'm not sure how you rank the ST's coach but he D.Smith sucks. He's been here what 6 yrs and not one KR for a TD. I don't even think 1 PR for a TD.

D.Smith is completely the problem. His whole scheme is horrid. I hope the meeting with the assistant coach's was just a formality. Fire them all and bring in your team Shanahan.

I think the fact that ARE remained the starting PR should be reason alone to fire this guy.

Seriously, it's not like Moss is doing anything as a wide receiver, why not throw him in the mix as a PR or KR and see what happens, worst case we stay below average
