i read on the sight that mathis might miss the game because of his hammy. I really hope he can play. He can be a game-breaker. I just wanna hear what you all say.

I agree and I've really been looking forward to Mathis making returns.

Mathis is questionable (50/50) for the game. Morency, who hasn't returned a single kickoff in the preseason and totaled a whopping 10 returns in his college career is our new returner. Suddenly cutting Swinton & Kasper looks kind of questionable. Here's a whole article from the official site

Morency is incredibly talented. He is explosive and cuts on a dime...I'm not worried about him.

I thought Buchanan was supposed to be a return specialist. Why is he NOT returning?

I'm guessing there are significant differences in kick returns and punt returns. Personally it seems like if you could do punt returns then kick returns would be much easier, but I've never done either before so I don't really know. Should we expect Buchanon to return punts still? Or will Morency handle both?

Tony Hollings is our other kickoff returner. So that's why we kept him

I dunno.....I don't like it. Swinton seemed steady and definitely experienced
like JJ from past years, but much more talented than JJ. I mean you run it
back 100 yards - that's a helluva upgrade right there over what we've ever
had here. I thought they were getting a little cute with the roster by cutting Swinton. I have zippo confidance in Hollings and Mathis is talented, but he's
being slowed by injuries right out of the gate. And I like Morency to, but that's another rookie taking on a role that's not in his college resume.
The idea of last minute juggling for the seasons opener, I don't like it.

Don't get me started on this whole subject (Swinton got s c r e w e d).

This is usually the part of my post where I go into a 1,000-word rant about how stupid it was to cut Swinton. I guess Arizona is laughing out loud right now. I am.

I would rather Buchanon not be a returner. He is going to be one of our starting corners and I dont want him to get injured on some return. I want him out there running hard on every defensive play, and not worrying about Special teams. M&M (My new nick name for Mathis and Morency) can take care of that.

I was thinking the same thing, Hollings has both more speed & experience. the last thing we need to see is a ball popping out on a kick-off after a solid hit, if there is one thing I've noticed about Morency is that he does not always put the ball away and losses control of the football. and if Hollings cannot at least return kick-offs I'm at a general overall loss for why did they keep him :brickwall

Let's start a "Bring JJ Moses Back" petition.

At least he has sure hands: Only lost one ball the whole season. And if I'm thinking correctly, that lost fumble was actually the only ball he even dropped.

BRING BACK MOSES!

The only time JJ put the ball on the ground it had nothing to do with handling the kick initially. He safely caught the ball and then lost it when hit during the return,.
