Also I don't know if true because it was on twitter but read Jairus Byrd was also going to start to do this in NO? Seems like a big risk with these star players and on huge money deals.

I don't know how many punts Thomas will be able to recruit but I don't see the value in any team having extra punts on their team.

And it was in the middle of last nights game against the Charger scrubs. And Sherman was blocking the gunner.

He can have some of ours. I'm okay with that.

This seems like one or those things that the first time one of these star players scores a touchdown on a punt return the coach will be called a genius with the guts to put the best player that gives the best opportunity to score back there... Then when said star player gets injured everyone will be sayin how dumb of a move it was. And calling for the coaches head

And no one will look at the actual stats on either side.

That it's two of the leagues more forward thinking coaches leads me to believe the numbers aren't awful, if the guys actually your best return guy

I guess I can buy it in the reg season but the middle of the 2nd preseason game? But what do I know. I'm an idiot.

Preseason seems a bit much, ill agree

Gotta get a few live reps but if more than a few it seems silly.
