Before Ted Ginn, there was:
Allen Rossum (The only decent returner we had, and Singletary cut him after the embarassing loss to Atlanta)
Arnaz Battle (Probably the slowest punt returner in league history)
Philip Adams (cost us a game against the Saints with fumbled punt, deep in 49ers territory)
Kyle Williams (whose infamous fumbles need no introduction, a big reason why we didn't make it to the Superbowl last year)
Kentwan Balmer (probably the most sure hands we had before Ginn)
Who else? I have nightmares when I think of our punt return game outside of Ginn. I remember I was at the game where
Philip Adams coughed up the ball. I watched the punt go up in the Candlestick wind, spiraling and falling near the sideline.
I just knew that he was going to fumble it. I closed my eyes and then heard a huge groan across the entire stadium.
