nate should be returning our punts. better make that 80 million somehow its not in coverage thats for sure...as for battle...i think we should have cut him and had sheets on our team. but o well just stop letting him return.
If not for Battle we wouldn't have Smith in there which is sad. Smith should have been in from the start but I'm happy that Battle did muff it because we'll have a better offense the rest of the year now because of it.

I don't agree with this.
The fact that our offense couldn't move the ball should have prompted Mike Singletary to make a change whether we were down by 21 or 14 at the half, and I think he would have.

True that if he didn't see it then let it bounce easy decision I think.
Boneheaded play by Battle! Costs us the game!
Cut Battle a break. He is a reliable WR when given the chance to play and there is no reason to cut him loose. What if Morgan, Crabs or Bruce get hurt? Battle is the type of player who can do a nice job filling in for them.
