They don't necessarily need to get him on the field more, they just need to be smarter about when they do. He needs to be used in open space, not as a decoy on 2nd and goal from the 6 yard line

He needs to put on 20 to 30 pounds or he might get killed out there. But I agree, he needs to get touches on offense.

Re: Brandon Banks is the f-ing man.

Brandon Banks has the second most yards and the third highest average for punt returns this season. He is an enormous improvement over Antwaan Randle El.

I totally agree.
This kid is a total x-factor. Hopefully we can exploit his talent to the fullest, i.e. The mismatch/situational plays where we can Put Banks in space to capitalize on his speed.
I envision a Trendon Holiday from L.S.U. type of use. A true special teamer, with his speed/shiftiness, and have a set of plays in the gameplan to be used as a weapon on offense. (reverses, stretch plays/go routes, or screens to the outside to use his speed.) With his frame size, I don't believe he is a starter in this league at wr, but his value is great if we can keep him from getting killed across the middle like Desean Jackson, he can make some plays that only he can make.
In other words: you can't teach speed, speed kills, and this guy is a lethal weapon. Use him correctly and he can be a great asset for us.

Re: Brandon Banks is the f-ing man.

Nice to see him return one. Would have been nice to see him get it in a win. He will win us a game down the road.

A little too short for anything other than a screen or end-around. Bombing it deep to him is like hitting an ant with a catapult from six miles away. He is fast enough but it would take some skill to get him the ball deep.

Banks just had surgery and could miss big game v. Philly.

Re: Brandon Banks is the f-ing man.

Suffering the awfulness of Phillip Buchanon as a punt returner is something I loathe greatly.

LOL. Seriously. That game against Philly is huge, and Banks is really the only weapon we have.
