Default Antwan Randel El is not the answer

Why did you draft Sanders, Emmanuel and Antonio Brown. ARE was decent back in the day, but he is past his prime. All he does is run east and west.

He calls a mean fair catch. Of course that's about all he did in washington the past couple years and that' why they had no problem parting ways with him.

I really missed Logan today, I think he could be a game changer on the team this year.

he had room to run back basically one punt all game. the Falcons punted with good field position most of the time, so he never had much of a chance since the defenders were so close. another reason is our punt return blocking is horrible. it was horrible last year as well. Logan hardly ever got a chance to return.

I think a lot of it had to do with risk and how the game was being played. ARE gives you safety from committing mistakes. He might not be as explosive as he used to be, but hes the safe bet. Keep in mind that this game was a defensive battle and a STs mistake would be a huge swing. Sanders is more agile and faster than ARE but hes a rookie. He could make that mistake to lose the game.

My only problem with ARE back in the day was the money he wanted. He isn't a liability per se but he ain't worth mad money.

i was one of the few people around here that wasn't too excited to see El return. i've watched my share of skins games over the years ( they're on almost every week here ) and El's "splash" players are few and far between. randel El is no better than shawn McDonald. people get too nostalgic over a few big gadget plays many moons ago. mike mularky and those gadget plays are long gone.

I've been harsh on ARE but what I liked today is he was able to get open short. He would be the perfect #4 WR to replace Mwelde Moore and go 4WR and TE when we use the empty backfield.

I was missing Nate Washington as I watched the Tenn. highlights.

Still, I can't comment on ARE until Ben comes back. If he keeps getting open and catches everything thrown to him...I guess we'll be OK.
