Joppru has as good of hands as JJ, and he's just as fast, so put HIM back there returning punts. Settling for JJ is like settling for finishing 19th in the Daytona 500.
Well we have been over this several times, and still not buying this argument. Only 9 of 32 teams had anyone return a kick-off for a TD last year and only 2 of those had two returned--that's out of well over a thousand kick-offs. There were more muffed kicks that the 11 TD's. I'll kiss the cousin and go for a sure handed guy that gets good average field position as a preference rather any sense of settling.
