Re: Special Teams

I'd have no qualms at all seeing both Morton AND Brown deep on kicks.

Re: Special Teams

You also have Thrash, Moss, and Patten who can return kicks/punts...

Re: Special Teams

I was thinking Moss too, but someone brought up that he's kind of fragile. We already have a couple good returners. I'd leave him for kickoff duty.

Special teams is by far the most improved area of our team with the O-line a close second in my opinion. I see two more wins next year because of our upgades on special teams.
it amazes me that we never use thrash to return kickoffs...he consistantly gets good yardage. we need to get rid of morton, and maybe use moss as the punt returner. HTTR!!!!

Re: Special Teams

I could see Moss and/or Rogers playing the "Darrell Green role" when a critical good return is needed towards the end of a game....but not returning kicks on a regular basis.

Re: Special Teams

Why is that? Everyone is discounting him so quick as though he had no talent. Now if you're talking about him being cut, that is very possible. I don't doubt his abilities as a return man though.

Re: Special Teams

Ok so what makes you think that Morton is good. He has punt return for a TD as a Skin. 2 kickoff returns in one game for the Jets. But his avg. return is 24 for Kick offs and 9 yards for punts. So if the other team kicked to him and he recieved on the 1 yard line it would be as good as a touchback. 9 yards on a punt, that is sad. That does not even put him in the top 10 in either catagory. In fact his numbers are quite inflated based on 1 good year in 2002 with the Jets, if you took away that year his numbers (avg.) are dismal. It does take talent to get on a NFL field I grant you that, but there are much better players to pay this type of money to.

I agree.....Morton has gotta go....us cutting him and saving cap space is better than retaining him........he is way OVERRATED as a returner! Brown is going to be an absolute beast! I can't wait to see him this year!

agreed. Brown is much more explosive. He's like a rocket.

Re: Special Teams

We have had such dismal blocking for special teams the last few years there's only so much a returner can do when he has 3 guys on him and no wedge.

Morton is a straight up baller, he has MVP potential

Re: Special Teams

i liked morton. he does have explosiveness when returning punts and kicks, it just wasn't used to the fullest potential. but it seems he's on the chopping block now so i don't think he will be on the roster after june 1st. i guess that means santana moss will be taking over the primary duties on returning special teams.
