As far as the kick return its shaky and now with Mendy gone i wanna see who will be put in the back with Moore. Our kick off return defense looks outstanding only giving up one or two runs for a big gain im extremely impressed.

I honestly like Holmes as our punt returner its all about speed and quickness these days(Hester), and Holmes has it all. He looked pretty good to against the Ravens and he being effective will boost our field position.

Im sick of playing good punters ahh! There killing us with field position almost every time pinning us under the 20 yard line which stinks!

Yeah the return game can be better, but at least this season I'm not secretly praying our punt return man actually catches the ball. Kudos to the special teams.

Way to go special teams look alot better then last year we are getting down the field quicker and making tackles that is the way we need to do it.

I'd go as far as saying that we are 3-1 because of special teams. Last years special teams might have cost us both the Cleveland and the Baltimore games.

The biggest improvement has been in tackling.

And all you all missing the wasted draft pick (i.e. hurt punter)

we are averaging a yard better this year

last year we had a net avg of 38.4

this year we have a net avg of 39.2

noted tackling is better or maybe the hang time is better or berger does not out kick the coverage

its not that i do not like daniel but when we can pick a guy up off of the street and get the same numbers, why not draft a real football player

The only reason we're getting the same numbers is that teams aren't starting past their own 40 3/4 of the time due to the vastly improved coverage. I'm actually almost to the point of not holding my breath when we punt for a change. Berger is not a good punter, and I don't believe for a second that our numbers wouldn't be quite a bit better with Sepulveda, again, due to the vastly improved coverage.

I agree, the coverage has been great, I just hate to jinx a good thing. So as far as I'm conserned, it needs to improve. We haven't caused a fumble yet on a punt return so I want to see that.

Also, Do we have a "punt block" anywhere in our special team's playbook. I mean come on, once in a while, send the house and put pressure on the Punter so he isn't taking 40 seconds to set his feet and kick a mile high into the air and 65 yards every time.
