Like we all debated to death a few weeks ago, I didn't see Starling as a guy who would catch very many passes this season. His special-teams speed and work ethic were what impressed me.
It's nagging at me that the week after we get smoked for a 99-yard kickoff return for a TD, we cut one of our fastest guys in kick coverage. Granted, there's a lot more than just one guy's speed to blame for THAT momentum-killer, but these practice squad moves do take a toll.
Whenever someone around here says, "Look! Team X cut Player Y! We should sign him right now!" The response is always, "OK, who would you cut?" I hope this was a good decision in a special-teams context as well as an offensive context.
