Default Kickoffs and Punt Coverage....

Why don`t the Texans use Aaron Glenn or AJ as Safety Valve on Kickoffs and Punt Coverage? That would end TD`s happening on Special Teams

Why don't the Vikes put Randy Moss on special teams? I see where you are coming from... but the last thing we need right now is a Sehorn pulled on us.

True but Sehorn was returning a kickoff. Your only as good as your Special Teams are. Games are won and lost by special teams when 2 good teams are playing. I rather have AJ or AGlenn running down a return man than Brown (we
saw what happen) even though it was the biggest hit by a Texan this yr
can`t afford to lose Brown!
Having AJ or Aglenn just sitting at the 50 seeing if a returner breaks away. Not to be in the middle breaking up the Wedge. I think Randy has been in a couple of Special Team plays. You should have your best athletes on Special Teams even if they are starters.

Starling was never injured... In fact, we cut him today.

Signed Matt Murphy off the practice squad. I would hope they try to sign Starling to the practice squad.

No putting AJ or Glenn on special teams is stupid.

They get paid way too much to be put at the position where injury is the most likely.

It is much easier to find speedy non skilled players to help on special teams.

Think about it. It wasn't STUPID when Deion Sanders was on special Teams.
Don't know how far back you can go but Mike Haynes for the Patriots in the late 70's ran back Punts as an All Pro CB! They were making alot of money for their era too! When 2 evenly matched teams play it will come down 2 Special Teams. STUPID is playing your 3rd string DB instead of your 1st string DB. See who has a better chance of winning the game!

Capers has put Glenn on KR duty before. Also, isn't Bethel Johnson the 4th WR for the Pats? Even if Johnson (Bethel) was your #1 guy, you gotta have that guy returning kicks, his speed is sick and he's got good field vision. With a position like KR / PR, I have always felt you put your best guy on the field, even if he happens to be an every down player, unless the player is nearing the end of his career, such as Glenn.

NFL is a risk! Can't be thinking of injuries they are going to happen if you’re cautious or not. Nature of the Game
