Yes a special teams unit that normally would give up the big run or a TD after we go ahead late in the game and this unit has really made a 360. The Steelers are playing a tough schedule but doing just fine. Once we get healthy this team will be hard to stop.

Still a lot of football to be played but I like our chances!!!!!!!!

Coverage teams have been really really good....return game is still very poor but as others have pointed out, at least they're not fumbling

it is our ST's that has us 4-1 instead of 2-3.

Last year, it was our ST's that made us go home.

Finally, the ST are coming together!

Kudos on special teams! An area we needed to tighten up on and we did. Makes a huge difference!

Yep....we've won 3 very close games, and a special teams mistake in any of them probably would've resulted in a loss.

Our Defense is better and our special teams is better....a little more consistency from the offense and we become LEGIT contenders

if only we had a descent return team......holmes is not a return man. he hesitates to long after he catches the ball.

Agreed he sits back there to long trying to decide what he is going to do but over all I really like our special teams alot better then last year.

No argument there.

When your kid brings home a B- for the quarter in a class that he had an D- in half way through the quarter... you pat him and the back and take what you can get. Next quarter, you work with him again to shoot for that A.

Exact same thing here. Just keep going like you are ST's. We'll come back to give you a bit more help next camp.

Don't screw with it now... cause you don't want to mess up anything at this point.

I think it's our coverage that has truly exploded. Our return game is still questionable on punts and kickoffs, but our coverage teams on punts usually don't even give up 5 yards and on Kickoffs runners sometimes get a lucky run or two a game if that, but giving our defense great field position is a huge help.
