And catching a punt in college is absolutely NO different then in the Pros...I mean a Ball is a Ball. The Steelers have a LONG history of letting rookies be their punt returners. And as far as what someone said about " Rico Suave Colclough " being a punt returner, and having fumbling Issues. Well Rico was NEVER a punt returner here. He was on Kick-offs, but that's really it.

Bottom line, Tomlin IS a confirmed Idiot if he keeps El back there. El was washed up as a PR while still in Washington. But this talk about how Steelers don't like to use Rookie PR's is ridiculous.....Willie Reid, Santonio Holmes, Hank Poteat,,Rod Woodson,,hell, Randle El,,ect,,ect,,and ect!

Antonio is an " ELITE " Weapon. Even a better overall player than Emmanuel Sanders will EVER be! He is a Game changer type of returner. And playing El back there over him is the EXACT same thing as starting Thaddeus Gibson at OLB over James Harrison...the EXACT same thing.

crazy post, college credentials don't mean squat in nfl. Ask Matt Leinhart, Eric Crouch, hell even Reggie Bush has struggled. Starting Gibson over Harrison is not same thing. Putting ARE back there is conservative. You rarely win games with a punt return but could easily lose one and shift momentum. With our Defense you don't want a game lost by a rookie who muffs a punt. Obviously if they go with ARE the coaches see something in practice we don't.

You cannot be afraid to use every member of your active roster where they shine regardless of tenure. I'd say it has more to do with what's happening in practice. None of us see that and there must be something we are missing because Brown was an amazing returner in college. I would love to see an actual return instead of El's fair catch with absolutely no one around him but Coach T know's more than I do so...
