Special Teams Dysfunction This year, our STs play seemed awfully sick. We never seem to get decent field position, not to even mention that our opponents reflect an inverse relationship to this phenomenon. I had to look up our stats to see if I was under an unfounded impression. WRONG! THIS LIST, granted has a mix of some returners with only a few attempts, BUT our league status is pitiful no matter how you look at it. Kickoff Returns JJ / ave yds 21.5 / longest 35 yds [53rd on the list] SS /ave yds 19.6 / longest 33 yds [73th on the list] Punt Returns JJ / ave yds 7.4 / longest 39 yds [27th on the list] DA /ave yds 6.5 / 17 [39th on the list] You could very well say that we have gone into every game with a built-in handicap which we are forced to overcome from the get go by other means. I'll let others comment on other obvious facets of our STD.
