    Just curious to see who you guys/gals think should return kicks and punts. Is Andre Davis gonna break out of last year's "slump"? And is JJ gonna hold on to the ball? Thoughts anyone?

    I would say the only thing obvious about this year is it's a make or break year for JJ. Andre Davis is consistent and is a good back up reciever, so he's not going anywhere, and will probably do his same reliably good job as he always does.

    JJ though, is a different story.

    What is most interesting to me is how the kick returns are going to look with the new rule that bans the use of the wedge. I am actually concerned about ADavis' effectiveness under the new rules. My guess is that quickness and explosiveness are going to become more important- similar to punt returning.

    He was very frustrating. He would return the opening kick off vs Indy for a TD, and then vanish for 4 weeks with a tweaked hammy. No thanks.
