Default Jacoby Jones is our kick returner! Take that Slaton

http://www.battleredblog.com/2010/10...-kick-returner

After today's practice, Coach Gary Kubiak said that WR/PR Jacoby Jones has a good chance to see reps as a kick returner this Monday

Lets hope he sparks our offence!

I don't know if Slaton is playing or not, but earlier in the week they said it wasn't likely or something...

Death in the family...

I wouldn't expect this to be a full time move...

Might as well, Slaton is just not getting the job done.

That sounds like a bank, or insurance company, lol.

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is our kick returner! Take that Slaton

OK with this development, why didn't we trade Slaton before the deadline. At this point with Foster and Ward, what in the world is Slaton's role? Is he the 3rd HB? If he is, we could have easily gotten a backup CB for him... heck even a draft pick... He has ZERO role on this team at this point. Foster is faster and more shifty than we thought... and Ward is reliable... I know you want to have 3rb's and it would be nice to have an alternative but we're having trouble fielding a full defensive backfield... we should have taken a flier on someone to help in the secondary.. JMHO!

Problem is that JJ is not a very good KR. He rocks at PR, but KR not so much.

He has no role here now. He is the 3rd RB(dont confuse that with 3rd down RB) behind Foster and Ward. And now appears to be overtaken at KR.

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is our kick returner! Take that Slaton

Slaton has been horrible returning kicks so far , he let the ball hit the turf in three consecutive games and made a boneheaded mistake in another .... Its well past time for a change at that position. Hell , I'd rather have David Anderson back there than Slaton .... and JJ has the potential to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.

Good news. A return TD would be HUGE against Indy. Field position is always critical.

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is our kick returner! Take that Slaton

With OD back, JJ has been used very sparingly. This will make good use of a heretofore relatively dormant player. Despite being used as both a KR and PR, he should be that much more effective/explosive due to the fact that he should be well rested through most of the game.

Who said dump him? Maybe you misunderstood. I said he has no role on this team right now. He is a bench warmer. Unless there is injury or fatigue, Slaton will not see the field.

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is our kick returner! Take that Slaton

I'm just gonna throw this out there (and I'm not championing Steve Slaton, by any stretch) but the new rules on Kick-off returns are hurting a lot of returners! No more "wedge" has had an impact in the league.


That said, I think Jacoby is just more athletic and is a better choice!! I do NOT advocate getting rid of Slaton because he brings a little something to the table. Has he disappointed since his rookie season? YES!! I'm just not ready to give him up just yet........... Well unless he was used in a trade that netted us much more..

That seems to contradict what Gary himself said, which is what you quoted in your original post.

I would not be shocked if Jacoby takes over if he is more successful, but I am not sure that is the intent at this point..

You would think with how heralded Joe Marciano is as an ST coordinator, they'd have make this move a long time ago. Starting from the 15 yard line and penalties every other kickoff should put any coordinator on alert.

I'm pretty sure the move had nothing to do with Marciano (Seriously, if Marciano could pick from the entire pool of players on this team, Andre would be fielding kicks)...and more to do with Kubiak, who felt Jacoby would play a bigger role in the offense this season...since he's not, (and with Slaton's horrible play) he's now available for more STs play. Marciano isn't a dummy, I'm pretty sure everybody down on fannin knew Jacoby was the best kick returner on the team.
