Dan. Sorry but I thought you would know I meant that Ricardo was never a REGULAR punt returner. He has 5 total in his career. 1 in his rookie year, and 4 in his 3rd year, which is where that fumble happened. Brown has more than 300 Punt returns to his college credit. The guy makes Devon Hester and Joshua Cribbs look like total " SCRUBS "


Oh yeah, I can see Tomlin's logic in keeping him off the field ( Sarcasm )

My thought too...

The whole panic-drive fear of this WhatdoIknow's argument reminds me of the Dixon fanatic who started the thread "Dixon absolutley HAS to be our starter" beause of his play in the first pre-season game. I think that guy got banned, but he got his wish anyway, and we all saw how that went.

Anyway, I'm sure if Brown isn't out there for a lot of returns the coaches have a real reason for it.

Wow we are 3-0 and we have all these people that know more about coaching a NFL Team than Tomlin.

There is a reason he is coaching! Tomlin see's Brown all week during practice and is most likely doing what is best for the team. Everyone is calling for this change but if he does this and all of a sudden we give up 7 points from a bone head play by a young return guy and maybe lose a game then those KNOW IT ALLS WILL SAY HE IS THE COACH AND EVEN THOUGH I SUGGESTED IT HE SHOULD KNOW BY PRACTICE THEY BROWN COULD MAKE THOSE MISTAKES.


Some fans are never satisfied. Points were a rare commodity until this past week and playing mistake free football was key in helping us to win.

Tomlin you keep on being the coach you are!!

I say that we put Brown in when were winning, just to see how well if he does, if he makes mistakes then we will know that Randle El is the way to go. At least for this season

Dan, Plexico once carried the ball as a RB out of the backfield one time....does that make him a RB ? Rico might have a total of 5 punt returns in 3 years, but that does NOT make him a Punt returner. And that fumble he had against Cincy did NOT happen in his rookie season. Which is EXACTLY the arguement that people are making here why Tomlin is sending El back there Instead of the rookie Brown. Even though the Steelers have a long History of having " PURE " Rookie punt returners....and I already have proven that.



Now stop already cause you are just coming off looking like an Idiot! Colclough was never a REGULAR punt returner at anytime in his career. And THAT is what I meant.
