I'm beginning to think there might be a different issue at play here.

Honestly, I think our returners play too tight. Jmo, but I think kubiak instills a fear into those guys. I think they become so obsessed with securing the ball, that they don't play as natural.

The guys we've had back there have shown that they are capable, but I think it's hard to play that position when you are thinking that one mistake can cost you your job....your spot on the team..

Those guys were young. They didn't have any past nfl success to remember that they could in fact be good returners.

Put a guy like manning back there and all of a sudden we're breaking long ones. He returns loose. He's not worried about a fumble costing him his job. Plus, he knows damn well he's a good kick returner. All he has to do is look at his résumé.

Kubiak needs to instill confidence in whomever the returner ends up being. Yeah they may make some mistakes, but if you put a talented guy back there and have them playing loose and confident, they are going to make some plays.

I think the blocking stuff is overstated. There's only so much blocking you can do on special teams anyways.

Find the best man for the job, let it be his job. Sure preach ball security, but don't drill it so hard that its all the guy is thinking about. Let playmakers be playmakers. We don't want the returner version of Schaub throwing the ball away when there's no reason to. Let your players play man.

I bet you Gary wants him to run those "surprise" run plays on 3 and 20

Say..... just because we signed this guy doesn't mean he'll make the 53 right?

I mean we may just be kicking the tires on a guy they liked back when...

Well, it's official now. Karim and Horn have been signed, and Winn and O'Neill have been cut to make room.
