Default Re: Nate Washington

I knew there would be people to disagree with me on that one.

I relize you must have a long snapper. I just mentioned Schneck to name the four specialists.

As far as the others..... Cowher always has these specialist and I think most Steelers fans would tell you that our punt and kick coverage has been below average under Bill. Teams have been returning punts and kicks on us for like 12 years. Last season was good, only giving up two but for the most part I would bet the Steelers rank in the bottom half of the NFL in punts/kicks returned for TD. Everytime we kick the ball I think it is going to be returned for a TD. So whats the point?

I have seen Sean Morey take horrible angles on coverage and not even touch the returner (Once Monday night vs. Phily). Don't be consumed by the "he's a great special teamer" talk. It is just another way of saying he's not good enough to start, or he can't do anything else. Cowher loves these guys because they are a reflection of his own career.
