Default Cut Davenport, Sign Foster

Is anyone else absolutely sick of watching Najeh Davenport and his 15 yard kick returns? He just looks so slow and useless.

Even if Willie Parker isn't healthy Davenport is the 4th option behind Moore, Russell and Carey Davis. We don't need him and I don't care to see him on a Steeler uniform anymore.

Jayson Foster is on our Practice Squad. He is on the small side but he is lighting quick and has been timed in the 4.2's in the 40. He played quarterback and wide receiver at Georgia Southern but also returned punts and kickoffs. He won the 2007 Walter Payton Award (best offensive player in the sub division)

The Steelers are pathetic in returning kicks. They average 20.0 yards per kick return, 4.8 yards per punt return. The longest return on kickoffs is 27 yards and 13 yards in the punting game. THIS IS HORRID!! Weare 30th in the league in Kick Return and tied for 31st in Punt Returns (WHICH IS LAST)

I want to see Foster and see what he can do. Look him up on YouTube and you will be impressed.

IMO, that has more to do with Ligashesky's unwillingness/inability to teach proper wedge forming techniques on returns. Watch closely - every time one of our returners catches a kickoff/punt, they are IMMEDIATELY surrounded by 4, 5, or 6 guys wearing different colored jerseys with absolutely no room to run, regardless of who it is - it's almost as if our return units don't even bother to block at all a lot of the time. However, I wouldn't be sad to see Davenport go either, and he can take Ligashesky with him.

I agree -- Dookie is pretty much useless to us. We don't need a running back who's no good at running or a return man who's no good at returning. About all he's good for are poop jokes, and that's not worth a roster spot.

so are you saying to CAN him?



(ok, maybe it wasnt that funny)

our special teams are getting better. i just like how he doesnt fumble and seems to get beyond the 20 yd line. we will never score a ST td with him, but we may not hand over a td either.

anyone notice how good bobby april and the guy who followed wiz to arizona are doing now that they dont have cowher cowering over them. april is considered one of the bests with the bills and cardinals is vastly improved. hell s. morey even blocked a kick? who was the last steeler to block a kick? rod woodson?

i think we'll get even better next year w/o much change.

Dookie is about as worthless as teits on a fish returning kicks. Honestly, can he break one and run it all the way back and not get caught from behind?

He will be gone as soon as FWP is back. No need for him with willie, carey, moore, and russel. I bet John Kuhn could average 25 per KO.
