I wouldn't classify him in their league of import. People forget the other equation, the people up front who forms the wedges and stalls the gunners. Last year was one of his best if not the best as a returner not only because of him, but those around him also. Not saying his job is easy and easily replacable. Just that a lot of things will come down number crunchings and not wanting to lose a certain player. Otherwise, they would have locked him up b-4 f.a. if they didn't think he wasn't replaceable. After all, nobody else wanted him and he had to comback here.
I remember When Singlebraincell released Allen Rossum after Dre Bly's int fumble against the Falcons. I think that was the last time we had a good return man. We had awful, terrible returners from that point until we traded for Ginn. I don't ever want to see fumbled returns as the cause of our losses, as they were for years. People think Ginn is replaceable, I disagree. Kyle Williams is not an option. Neither are rooks. There may be one rookie returner a year that is worth starting...ie Patrick Peterson, Devin Hester, Josh Cribbs. They don't come around very often so you better damn well hold onto your guys if you have them.
