    We no longer return punts. We put eleven on the line and try to block every one. We will never give up another bull **** touchdown that costs a game. We will not get any return tds, but we don't get those anyway. Discuss.

    I'm glad everyone here understands that was Reynaud's fault... because most at the game and/or my friends seemed to be on Damian's ass for it.

    Reynaud has gift-wrapped 9 points for our opponents in 5 games. What a bum.

    Pretty much explains why we IR'd Mariani... we still want him as our return guy or at least give him a chance to be.

    Can Tommie Campbell not field a kick/punt or something? Because he has two special teams touchdowns both times we've gotten the ball in his hands.

    Both were trick plays.. hell, I could have scored with that much green in front of me.

    To answer your question OP, we would give up way too much field position. Team punts from their own 20, ball lands at our 40, takes a bounce and rolls down to our 20. That's a net of 80 yards, and that kind of stuff would happen.

    The special team mistakes are because of poor coaching, and having an idiot as a returner.

    How about letting CJ do it? He needs to do something to earn a fraction of his paycheck. You don't generally let expensive running backs do it, but I bet he'd be better at that than his real job.

    Yea, but still... my point is why can he not just return kicks/punts? Lord knows he's a terrible CB. Did anyone see him covering Bowe Sunday? I can't believe Alex Smith wasn't smart enough to throw that way. Tommie was so pathetically lost... he just jumped 5 yards back and stood there while their WR caught the ball for an 8 or 9 yard gain. He was so confused.

    Surely they've tried him out, right?

    Only problem is he's never taken those full-speed, high-flying hits that kick/punt returners are exposed to. I'd be worried about that.
