LaMichael James is a Niner

seattle given up 15 punt return yards all season so far. lmj better be with it on sunday.
LMJ doesn't look as fast as everyone says he is. When he does get a chance to run or catches a quick pass, dude takes a while to hit full speed. He's fast once he hits full speed but he's not Sproles fast.

number of different factors though. good O keeps the ball and gets into fg range before having to punt. touchbacks punted into the endzone, fair catches, it all plays in. but yeah good coverage teams obviously

Not exactly. SEA is doing something different than most teams. They put on a very small punt and kick coverage. They force a ton of fair catches or most of the unit is already near the runner since they go small.

I wanna see us go a little bigger and blow the coverage up at the LOS for a punt block.
I think LMJ is super talented, I also think he has the strongest thumbs in the NFL for all the time he spends on twitter! Cant for the life of me figure out he drops punts with his strong hands. Hey LMJ, this is the NFL. The best players play, the others complain about it on twitter.

they are the 2nd highest scoring team in the league and that absolutely plays into that stat. if you're scoring, you're not punting.

he looked nervous as hell back there on Sunday. I'd assume it'll only get worse against seattle.

His top speed is decent, but his acceleration isn't. That's why I see him being more successful in KR than PR. Although since he's more quick than fast, he'll probably gash a team in PR if given enough opportunities. He uses the fair-catch when he's supposed to, but not all the frickin' time - as opposed to KW who used it as his go-to default.

That has very little to do with it. Look at the teams that are tops in the league in return average.

SEA: 1.3
STL: 3.0
PHI: 5.5
DET: 5.8
TEN: 6.0

SEA has an extraordinarily small and fast punt coverage unit. Probably smallest in the league. They get there quick.

of the teams you listed, 3 of them are in the top 8 in league scoring ppg. if you're scoring, you're punting less which plays into it. now you still need good coverage no doubt about it, but when you're scoring and rarely punting you're giving fewer chances for the opposition to raise that average of yards per punt return.

What does total punts have to do with return average against. A team can punt once a game but allow 10 yards. This isn't about total opportunities.

See the link: http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/stats/byteam?group=Special&cat=Punting&conference=NFL&year=season_2013&sort=412&timeframe=

Number of times punted doesn't not factor into an average return. For example, CAR only punted 49 times to SEA's 48, yet they are not a very good punt coverage team.

you have to be good on coverage in order to have those statistics no doubt. i'm just saying if they had to punt more than they do they'd be giving up more than their current average. its like a rb having 10 yards per carry, keep giving him the ball and its likely to be lower.
LaEmo scares me when he's returning punts.
