    Looks like he learned from his cut back last week. Man we got a playmaker.

    Between him and Mathis, there isn't a team in the NFL that will be able to hang with our return team this year!!! :whip:

    With JJ and mathis, every team in the NFL will kick the ball out of bounds or into the endzone... They're scary :)

    The Cards did just that, at least twice.

    Teams are scared of our return team. That's not hype, guys. It's the dadgum truth.

    Did you see the short kick to Killings? He rear-ended Bray (our guy) and gave him massive whiplash. Bray just crumbled to the ground when it happened. Killings ran smooth THROUGH his own guy. It looked like it hurt.

    Teams are absolutely, positively taking notice of our return game. It's making punters and kickers do goofy stuff, sometimes shanking punts/kicks in an attempt to kick it directionally. So, in effect, we're getting good position no matter whether Mathis/Jacoby gets the ball or not.

    I'm luvin' it.

    Respect to Killings. We were upset that they didn't show a reply of that. Full on 'jacked up' moment. Kind of wish it was a defender, but hell;

    Mr. Kubiak, you have my permission to teach Killings how to play fullback.

    They say special teams win championships don't they??

    I feel like with Brown, Turk, Mathis and Jones we have some great ST's.

    Add our improved talent overall to handle coverage etc and I think we can turn some games with special teams play.

    I would agree with all except Brown. I think he can be shaken and stirred. The other guys rock.

    I'm real excited about the potential of our return teams right now. Starting field position is such a crucial aspect of the game. Long returns are a lot of fun to watch, too, which really gets the hometown crowd into the games.

    I'm ready to see this in the real season! :texflag:

    Not only do long returns get the home crowd into the game .... more importantly they can take the wind out of the crowd on the road . Nothing like the crowd going silent in the other teams arena ....

    Gary Anderson didn't miss a single kick in the 1998 season and choked when it most mattered.

    Mike Vanderjagt is the most accurate field-goal kicker in NFL history and couldn't hit the broad side of a barn in cruntch time.

    You telling me Brown has been perfect in preseason is suppose to mean what? I still worry when he takes the field; more so when the game is on the line. Yes his kick did beat the Colts year last year but how many has he missed?
