Is it time to go back to Arnaz Battle as punt returner?

I did not care for Battle as PR but man Brandon Jones sucks. He either lets the ball bounce backwards, doesen't make a fair catch when he needs to or runs backwards when he does get the ball and loses yards.

I think we should back to Battle, hate to say it and sad to say, but he is probably the best PR on the team (with Spurlock not here anymore).
Battle.


No. Let Battle do KR's, but field punts under pressure I'm afraid to see Battle do. Too many fumbles. Jones has zero fumbles.
Jones is a fish out of water back there. It appears his focus is just on not turning the ball over, and not on returning the ball.

Cause he doesn't catch the ball nor even wave his arms around alerting teammates to look for the ball, meaning the likelihood of fumble is still pretty high. Why we never even inserted Spurlock at PR/KR after cutting Rossum--which is how he got into the NFL--amazes me.

We should just go all out for blocks every punt, we'd get more TDs that way.
brandon jones is plain AWFUL ! dude doesn't know what the hell he is doing out there. he let the ball bounce about 15 yards back in tonight's game, has caught and attempted to take the ball out of the 3 yard line, and didn't call a fair catch when the defender arrived next to him seconds before he caught it.

U know I actually mentioned that to my buddy tonight after the game. Were better of with no one back there and just using the extra guy to rush the punter.
Battle was our primary PR prior to Rossum....and that muff fumble vs the texans a few weeks back forced us to go with nate vs the colts....
No, never again.
