Logan has been averaging 125 return yards a game on kickoffs. We have not had anyone giving us this kind of good field position in a long time!

Give the guy a break on the strip... it should have been whistled a dead play.

C'mon people, if we would have done that to Sproles everyone would be saying what a great play it was. Give the 'bolts credit for a good play. Should the whistle have blown? Absolutely, but as they say, "play until you hear the whistle."

It was a risky punt to be returning anyway.

Also, let's remember that Logan had a great pre-season against some special teamers that aren't even on rosters now. With that said, Logan is definitely an improvement, but I would just like to see the guy pick a hole and hit it.

I think Logan has been ok. The problem is that he spoiled us in the last 2 preaseason games.

After thinking about it this morning, I think he's been pretty good.

Logan is our best returner we've had in a while. The potential we all saw in the preseason is still there, its just that the other teams have seen it also by now, so they have a plan to stop him. I still think he'll break one or two this year. Much happier with him returning kickoffs than I ever was with Davenport or whoever returned punts before Santonio.

He's 8th in the entire NFL in Kick Return average, I'll take that over bottom 3 in the league with big slow oafs running them back.

He's an upgrade in Field position, and he will take one back this year at some point.

No problems here with Logan. I just remember the lackluster efforts of our kick returners (other than Santonio) over the past couple years and am grateful to have someone who is not stopped dead in his tracks every time he catches the ball. Fumbles happen to everyone and that one was suspect at best. That onside kick is the one that makes me see red. That fumble never should have occurred with a hands team in there.

I like Logan as well, I watched him the CFL last season but that is his second fumble this season, yes I know he was held up and all that. Logan has to be aware when to fight for yards and when to just go down. Up 28-7 in the 4th is not the time to fight for a couple of extra yards. I said it on another post, maybe Wallace should be given the odd kick return and punt return. Logan will be outstanding as he gets more used to the field size. The waterbug act works on the larger CFL field. It's more dfficult in the NFL with a smaller field and faster players.

I agree.

It was a great play by the Chargers ST ... and a lack of whiste, lol.

Stefan is fine, sooner or later we will take the ball to the house

Isn't our average starting position after a kickoff the 30 yard line?

I remember a lot of drives the last few years starting inside the 20 because we had guys like Carey Davis and Najeh Davenport returning kicks.

And as for the strip returned for a TD last night, I chock that up to the refs failure to whistle the play dead and a good hustle by the Chargers special teams playing to the whistle.
