Method, I would agree with you except that Rossum = Proven and Anyone Else = unproven.
Now NORMALLY this would not be a huge deal since the KR/PR position hasn't changed until recently. That change is that no team can use the Wedge on returns.
So the crux of the matter is to keep a known proven player there and the possibility of one taken to the house, or get rid of him in favor of an unknown who could be our next R.W. McQuarters. Remember THAT guy? He would run RIGHT INTO the back of the Wedge and promptly get tackled at around the 20 or less instead of using it for what it was meant for sucking in the KOSquad and bouncing out to the sideline with the least personnel on it.
I have to say that I never never never NEVER want to go through that again. It will happen but I'll take Rossum until the wheels fall off his cart on the field.
Now I will say that we should be working in the occasional guy so that we can get them going. Kind of like what Walsh used to do with Montana to keep him healthy. If we're up and the game is out of reach for our opponent, pull him and send in the 2nd and 3rd teamer. Which is one reason why this team hasn't done much over the last 5-7 years and not seen a playoff berth since what '02?
