Anybody see the Patriots Lineman go 71 yards on a kickoff return, maybe he can be brought in to show Slaton how to run with conviction.

Does Slaton really deserve all the blame? True, Slaton has a terrible KO return average. But Jacoby hasn't done much better, only averaging 2.6 yards per return better.

The blocking on kickoffs, as well as punts, have clearly been horrible this season.

#31 clearly blocked the kicker in the back at the end of that run.
It should have been called back. Still, it's an excellent sign of
a well-coached special teams unit if a lineman can get 71 yards
on any return.
