Miami doesn't need Devin Hester to break people off for TDs, what they need is fora sure handed return man to give them field position, screw TDs from a speedy Drummond, give me a good field position return culminating in our return man getting rodeoed by a punter, and then another lethargic 3 and out!!!!!
Having a speedy return man who returns kickoffs for TDs hasn't seemed to work too well for Cleveland or Buffalo. Terrence McGee of Buffalo has 2 KR for TD (same as Drummond) and they're not exactly setting the league on fire. Neither is Richard Alston and his Cleveland Browns with his one KR for a TD. What about Punt Returners like Arnaz Battle (SF) or R.W. McQuarters (CHI) or Nate Clements (BUF)? Surely their speed is what has propelled their teams to such successful seasons thus far. JJ has at least been reliable back there. That's more than I can say about most of the team in the past few games. If I have to choose between a speedy returner or a reliable/sure-handed returner I'll choose the reliable guy every time. Until we find a guy that is both then I'd stick with JJ. We need to have all three phases of the game show up for four quarters if we want to beat Tennesse.
