Default Willie Reid tonight vs Panthers

imho, it's essential that reid show something tonight. he doesn't have to return it for a td, just make a move on somebody, out run sombody to the corner. i hope to see it tonight. if not i'd go with young (on the roster not as a punt returner) any other opinions?

i dunno....i'm not so sure that reid, missing last season, won't still be looked upon as a 3rd round rookie who automaticly gets a roster spot.

tomlin definitely agrees.

Will Willie Reid return punts?

Yes.

Do you need to see something from him?

Absolutely. He put a ball on the ground. We’re going to fall short sometimes and how we respond to it is what’s going to define us. I challenged [Willie] Reid this morning in front of his peers and that’s part of it. We’ll see what he brings and I expect him to bring it because he’s a competitor.
the media is obviously scouting for other options though.

Do you look at the waiver wire?

We’re always going to be open to the opportunities that are going to make us great. The waiver wire is part of it; I don’t really have an opinion in regards to it at this point, but am definitely not opposed to it.

Does free-agent WR Tim Dwight mean anything to you?

I know Tim Dwight; he’s played a bunch of ball.

Can He still?

I don’t know, I haven’t watched him recently.
i would rather see reid succeed than have to rely on young or the waiver wire.

I also agree...

but for what Reid can hopefully bring. His speed would be great. To be able to stretch both sides of the field, and then run Ward and a TE or two underneath would really open things up.

i want willie to be the answer as well. i'm sure the Steelers do. if he doesn't show, at least a glimpse, of potential as a punt returner, then is he on the roster? better than young as a reciever? questions to ponder. i hope he gets his groove on and becomes a weapon. i just haven't seen any indication (yet) that he is capable.

Nope, no muffs and he actually sounds like a NFL KR tonight - I'm forced to listen to a NC radio station's webstream of it, so I didn't see either return.
