Smoot, that may be true. But if Banks is so worthless, then why hasn't Mike Shanahan made a move on him, especially given yesterday's topflight performance on punt returns by Richard Crawford who received a game ball from the head coach? Banks is worth something if very little. If he wasn't Shanahan would have cut Banks like he did with John Beck.

No rush to cut him or shop him at this point though.

re: Goodbye Brandon Banks?

I think the Niles Paul experiment will come to an end at the end of this season. He can get open, but what's the point in that if he can't catch the durn ball?

Dropped passes. Dropped passes drive the coaches crazy. Dropped passes drive the fans crazy. Dropped passes drives everybody crazy. Paul truly needs to hang on to the football. As far as Niles Paul on kickoff returns, I like his burst but it seems his burst isn't always there. I doubt if they take him off of kickoff returns. Like with any player with the football, Paul needs to do a better job of covering the damn football with both hands when there's at least 4 seconds before contact.

It's strange. Paul is doing what I expected him to struggle with well. Catching the ball, coming from the WR position, I saw as a given...

Niles Paul can catch the football. Usually when a WR/TE drops a pass, it's because he is lacking focus. Sometimes I laugh when a perfectly thrown pass hits a guy right in the hands for a incomplete pass. Clint Didier, Rick Doc Walker, Don Warren, Stephen Alexander, Jaime Asher, Jean Fugett, Chris Cooley, and certainly not Jerry Smith dropped passes.

Oh I definitely think you keep him on teams, just don't let him see the field on offense or otherwise touch the football.

Paul's been targeted 17 times this year, and has caught 9. He's around 52%. Logan Paulsen is 19 for 31, around 61%. So, in terms of stats and %, you wouldn't think Paul is very far behind, but he's dropped a lot of passes that were right in the bread basket. That's not to say the other receivers haven't been guilty of the same thing through.

He can't hold on to it either per his fumbled kick return that we got lucky and got overturned.

Apparently he's a decent blocker on the line (supposedly) and awesome on ST. After this year I'd cut Banks and Paul. As we have seen we have another KR and we have Young to run block. Lets find and actual TE who can catch and block.

I might be way off but if I remember correctly most of Paulsen's were either over throws, dirt balls, or thrown behind him. He usually catches the balls thrown right to him. Usually.

Paul on the otherhand seems to drop every pass thrown his way. His catch in the Dallas Thanksgiving day game suprised me. At first I was like Oh we got a man open, then it was like "oh he's bobbled the ball", then I was like "Oh he caught it", then I was like "Oh crap thats Paul.... he actually caught it."

I've heard others say Paul is a good blocker on offense but when I watch games for the second time around I see him whif and basically miss the action over and over. Maybe he's good part of the time, but several of the big hits on RG especially in the pocket are on Paul.

I actually would cut him and bring in a kickoff specialist. More value at this point.

Any word on whether or not Crawford will be returning kicks?
