It's funny how every single time we return a punt , I literally expect only a 2-3 yard gain if it's not a fair catch. It just looks like Richie is so hesitant on what he wants to do after he catches it and doesn't look fast but atleast he's not turning it over (knock on wood)

Honestly, I think that's all Hightower coaches up. It certainly doesn't appear any of our returners are set up to become dynamic over the past three years. Taylor before him too. Fair catch monsters.
So...yeah. At least you got to see what a return game looks like.
Wait a second. Russell Wilson's dad has the #1 and #2 best returners in college in Dante Pettis and D.J. Reed and Raheem Mostert and the best he can get out of these guys is Raheem Mostert as a gunner????

Who does this guy from Police Academy still have a job?
The last time Mostert was used on a return of any kind that I can remember was when Baalke was still around.

I didn't even remember. But he looks like he does when he runs. Good vision!

He's definitely the opposite of that guy.
Really not liking the way our special teams is operating right now. Our punt returns seem to cost a ton of field position every game just by not catching the ball
Have we had one meaningful return this season?

No.

Maybe this guy can add this to the game. I get envious of other teams who even attempt a trick play once in a while. Hightower's big creative move this year was to use Goodwin as a middle gunner even though he already has the best combo of outsider gunners in the entire league in Mostert and Moore.

Yeah, WIsh has a lot of work to do and special teams has a lot of work to do in terms of creativity. Remember the one time we did the direct snap to Dashon Goldson (I think in 2012) and Goldson picked up 20 or 30 yards? Say what you will about Saleh, but he has had some great games and has done some good things on defense overall. On offense, we have seen for three seasons what Kyle is capable of. Special teams seems like it's not holding up it's end based on available talent.
