technically yes vinny, i had thought you'd have known what was meant.

this debate seems to me to come down the importance people put on special teams. my feeling is that a kick returner is a specialist and is critical to any team. dante hall is one of the biggest names in football, why? surely not because he's what 5'9" and makes spectacular catches, no it's because he's able to field a 50 yard kick and make moves noone else on the field can to get his offense in best position possible to score.

honestly, who would be displaced if we field a return specialist such as JJ? if a receiver is that person, it's a backup to two other backups. if it's another player, it's going to be someone who wont see much, if any, game time unless there's a blowout. what happens if we only have 4 wr's? we put miller out there if there's going to be a 5 wr set, a better receiver anyways. if one goes down, that means armstrong gets more time to play (which i believe he's going to really suprise folks when given the chance) and we activate the best of our young core from the practice squad as a backup.

now if i'm wrong and the arguement is simply JJ isnt good enough, find me anyone on the texans' roster that is better. or find me any "rookies" that gained more yards with fewer fumbles/drops than moses. "slow" isnt much of an arguement, i've already disputed big play potential with stats.
