    I think I disagree. Jernigan was trusted enough last season to handle kickoffs in the Super Bowl and did well. Coughlin said this week they had been working with JJ to insert him as the up man on kickoffs and JJ got his chance and ripped off a 60 yard return with great acceleration good moves and vision. If Wilson is removed from Kick return duties I see JJ going back there. Having your #3 returning kickoffs and punts who has had a bit of an injury history sounds like a gamble, especially when no other #3 has really established themselves at the wideout position.
    I agree with this. I think Jernigan has the speed and shiftiness to make big plays and Hixon is too important to the passing game right now. Especially with Nicks banged up.

      #3 wr might be the most important piece for making our offense go. Bradshaw will be ready playoff time, but we need him against good defenses now to even get in. He's proven.

        Wilson would still start if Bradshaw is out, but Jacobs would do better than Pumpkin or Torain...

          With Bradshaw hurt, they won't risk it since no other RB has taken a handoff.

            I didn't think it was that serious, but who knows.

                  Lumpkin is the only other RB to take a snap on offense.

                    Ahmad didn't seem himself at all on Sunday. When did he hurt his knee?

                      He has a sprained knee, as per NFL.com.

                          I am not a big Bradshaw fan. Back during our first superbowl he carried a big defensive end for five yards. Lately he has not moved the pile at all. We need someone who can move the pile. BTW, I never though Jacobs moved the pile very well for a guy who is as big as he is. Always thought his biggest asset was having a huge blocker for pass plays. If you can't move the pile, you are not going to make third and short. I just don't think Bradshaw with his feet and ankle situation is very effective any more. I respect his toughness, but I don't think he is very effective, too many plays where he gets stuffed on first down. I did however like the way Andre Brown moved the pile.

                          Some people are calling for Jacobs to come back, but personally, I'd like to see us with a back that is more versatile. Maybe Wilson can be more of a pass catcher and bring back that dimension of the game we lost when Tiki retired.

                            The solution is, we have to keep them from scoring. Then we'll only have one KO to return, and almost anybody should be able to handle that job. So Defense is the key to solving this problem!

                              You're right about Jacobs not moving the pile. After his first couple of years he was very overrated as a big back. He ran too upright and top-heavy.

                                Not good but we will have to make adjustments with more 3 receiver sets and screens.
