The one thing I didn't address was the OP's question: It's been time since week one to try someone else out at PR.

This should be posted on Tomlin's message board.

I love how people think players don't practice or anything during the week or bye week...

I'm pretty sure he got some reps as punt returner during practice and the coaching staff made their decision based on what they saw..

Steelers have a much better special teams coach this year, he isn't some blind village idiot.

I agree but there is also something the blockers are doing wrong. They should be holding the gunners back an additional second. I know he fair catches a lot but the defenders are always around him when he gets the ball.

I held off saying something for the first few games because I wasn't sure if we were dealing with punters with amazing hang times but now the ST is making every punter look like that.

New PR.

Better blocking to create 1 more second.
