I can't say our special teams sucks, but Cribbs is a probowl returner and is the only guy this year who returned a kickoff for a touchdown, but after today mabey it is something that may need some work!

i think special teams reflects desire and depth... we obviously had no desire by the starters who looked as if they wanted nothing to do with special teams and this game showed how bad our backups are at wrapping up ball carriers if we lose more than one or two guys on Defense we're F***ed!!!

And things do not get any easier for the ST next week - they will face Leon Washington, who already has 2 90+ yard kickoff return TDs this season.

Keep kicking it high and short, Jeff!

So Darrelle Revis is not returning kicks for the jets? That would be sick, that team has 2 very explosive returners. too bad their O and D sucks

You know through the years our special teams have sucked and, I will still never forget the 2001 afc championship against the pats. two kick returns for touchdowns today almost reminded me of that. I hope we can get this fixed and, I know Tomlin will address this so we will see what happens. Again thank god for Ben and, his playing making. Also big props for the defense in the second half they really turned the game around. I agree with Keller it looked like Mcfadden put a poor effort in that kick coverage. Well I'm just gald we got the win today and, it was a big one because now we are 4-0 in the division and on our way now.

I had the same flashbacks too. We won't go very far in the playoffs with ST play like this.

it would be nice to have an explosive returner like Cribbs...he's a threat to break it everytime he touches the ball. Rossum's age is showing.

Shows how poor the special teams are when you're satisfied with only with that.
