    SUMMARY: Pacman Jones ended the season leading the AFC in punt return yardage with 440 total yards in part due to his 81-yard return for a touchdown Sunday. The touchdown return, Jones’ third of the season, tied Billy “White Shoes” Johnson’s franchise record for TD returns in a season. Jones’ 12.9 average per return was best in the league, nosing out Chicago Bears rookie Devin Hester, who finished with 600 total yards and a 12.8 per return average.

    For a Titans team, who at one point was using Tight End to return kickoffs, I'm excited that we finally have a return game on all fronts. We went a good 15 years with nobody until Mason and Pac Man.

    He's better than Hester by a long shot. Hester usually makes one cut and then it's a clear shot to the endzone. Much better blocking on their special teams.

    Hester maybe the fastest player in the NFL. But I don't think he has nowhere near the same vision as Pacman, Pac's vision is amazing, and Pac's balance is a lot better and he's a lot more elusive, this makes Pacman extremely hard to tackle...

    Pac Man Plays defense, while Hester does not , should that should be taken into account?, I think so

    Yeah he really filled 2-3 needs on this team and is coming on as a top corner....the sky's the limit for this guy.

    Pacman is one of the most ridiculously talented players I've ever seen.

    There have been a number of amazing returners in recent memory, but very few of them make significant contributions in other areas, as well. Even Dante Hall, who is one of the best returners I've ever seen, was never more than a #3 WR in the Chiefs' offense.

    Pacman has pretty established himself as an absolutely dominant returner, and a threat to score every time he touches the ball....but when he's not returning punts, he's shutting down his side of the field as a cornerback.

    The more I see of the league's elite corners, the more I appreciate the remarkable progress we've seen in Pacman's game.

    There were some that said he could only do this, that he would not be a good corner. I'm very glad he did both very, very well this year :yes: :yes:
