There were a lot of holds on punt returns. Still, AB's return average was way down from last year. All in all only the punt return unit was terrible. Also, Sylvester and Spence were injured. Sylvester is an amazing special teamer and I have a feeling spence will be as well.

The special teams unit from 2007-09 was worse... ask Josh Cribbs.
truthfully, when watching non-Steelers games I remember seeing a lot of penalties turning positive plays into negative plays, and I remember seeing several big mistakes on returns (the worst I can think of was Stefan Logan downing the ball at the 6 or 7 when he had room to run).

It got to the point with the Steelers though that a negative play on SP teams was expected.
have you ever wondered what your life would have been like if you became a hired goon right out of school? you would have had a chance to learn the ropes from other goons and rub shoulders with all kinds of seedy characters. oh the stories you would be able to tell.
