  • our special teams is due for a big PR/KR

    feels like it's been forever since we've had a return on special teams for a big gain, let alone a TD. but it's one thing that would be huge for this team come sunday. i think our defense will outplay green bays, and our offense will put up the points to keep it close at least. but a return for a TD could mean all the difference in the game. just got a feeling like we're due for one finally.

      agreed..how nice would that be to get some points from our special teams or even an INT return on D just somethin.. it feels like 09 when hixon was returning kicks is the last time we got one.. it seems more likely this blackmon dude is gonna have a big fumble before a big return tho. im always yelling at my tv, just go down, eli can handle it from there

        LOL they aren't due they're waaaaay overdue. At least they haven't been giving up the long returns on a regular basis lately.....

          I don't know about a return, but they have been getting very close to blocking a punt.

          Tuck was so close last week I don't know how he didn't block the punt.

              me too.....I have no faith in them to run it back, the return team is awful. Seems like whether its Jernigan or Blackmon, they just have no where to go and usually end up in a nasty collision.

              I'm always holding my breath on every punt that the return man doesn't fumble.

                +1...seems like on every punt we hear everyone say "ooooooh!" because of how close we keep coming to blocking them. We could really use one of those in a big game such as this one. I heard that we use a special formation where we have 3 or 4 DE's on the line or something.

                  im just sick of being content with the return man simply catching the ball. every time our guy catches it, i let out a sigh of relief. it's time for a big play for once.

                    Is Hixon healthy and available?

                      Still, better than muffing and giving them the ball, no?

                            When was our last kick return for a TD??




                            I'm guessing it had to be Hixon.




                            The last one I can remember is I think that Hixon returned one in the last game of the 2007 regular season against the Pats. We had to have one after that though, right?

                              I think Hixon had one in 09 vs the Cowboys and that was the last one. I honestly don't really care about punt/kick returns, anything between 20-30 is fine with me.

                              I say we give Jernigan some more time, I like the way he moves.
