Re: The Special Teams Problem

It may be that Nick Williams is not playing due to ball security issues. If so, I'm happy if he stays on the bench. Worse than a return game that gains nothing is a return game which turns over the ball.

By that reasoning they brought him up to do nothing. I doubt that is the case.

There are enough positions where we could use help that if they weren't planning to use him then they should have scoured the list of free agents for someone who they thought could help.

No, I expect him to return kicks against Philly.

I'd be surprised if he isn't returning punts on Sunday. Very happy for him, been following his game for a few years now. Big fan

Re: The Special Teams Problem

Per The Washington Post:

"Coach Mike Shanahan praised the practice-field performance this week of rookie wide receiver Nick Williams but stopped short Friday of officially naming Williams the Washington Redskins’ punt returner for Sunday’s game at Philadelphia."

I would hate to think that Mike Shanahan feels any pressure to make changes to the worst special teams unit in the league. On the other hand, if it's not working why not try something different?
