He had several TD returns in his career as a Texan, so I don't see why one return TD would be all that big of a deal. If he has some more 50+ yard returns, then maybe it speaks more to Coach Joe's system rather than his ability to return kicks well.
I'm talking more about Jacoby's attention to avoiding mistakes during punts and kickoffs. That's the only improvement that I would grant him...but, let's see him do it for an entire season without costing the Ravens a game.
I do not think he will ever be that great of a receiver. He has the "ocho cinco" syndrome of being a one trick pony as WR. JMO
