Seems we are neglecting ST recently
(Collin Jones, Jennings, Ginn, Costanzo)
I agree we are neglecting special teams. We always go discount. But we got a good field goal kicker. I agree he is much more shaky on punts. I marginally trust him on kickoffs. But on punts I tell you the truth he will cost us games this year. I'm sure of it.
Lockette, #1 gunner...cut. Morris #2 gunner this pre season...cut. Hawkins, cut...Cam blocks a punt and returns for a TD, cut. Jnenings, cut. LMJ and Williams are your returners while the only one with "some" potential in Cox is your #3
But thank God we kept Ventrone! That should solve it all right there! Who were our gunners last year...and again this year? Brock and Spillman? And didn't we stink last year? Is there any doubt we'll continue to struggle on kick off coverage units and get little production from our returners. To me, this has been a glaring weakness for two years and it's burned us in the NFCCG and finally, the Superbowl. We need at least one dynamic returner (some teams have two).
PS: On a side note, and I'm not even joking anymore, Dawson has a huge leg and I pray we ask him to kick the ball out of the EZ every single time raher than risk giving up a TD.
