I agree... he runs right into the coverage on all of his returns.

I've told all my Redskin buddies they'll be loving ARE. (5 mill/per? What are they smoking?)

Replacing EL as a returner is not very different than having to replace Sean Morey as a
special teams stand-out. And I don't recall "many times" that El went all the way - I do remember the east-west yardage and the incessant dancing.

That next special return player will come from somewhere but if its not immediate I won't have sleepless nights. Right now a guy with speed who can catch a football and not TURNOVER the football is all we need. Finding ARE's replacement as a returner won't be unlike finding a SUV in a used car lot with oil trading @ $100 per barrel.

And I don't think Skins Fan will be all that happy with that inept anemic offense. If ARE couldn't be productive with Ben as QB, then how in the hell will he produce with their stiffs 'throwing' the ball? ARE's numbers were subpar last season.

And 5 mil per year...that smoke you smell is the aroma of Greenbacks burning in Dan Snyder's stove. Now that is something he knows and does well.

It's got to be that SI video. :) I've watched it so many times, I suppose I've seen him take it all the way more often than he really did. I checked NFL.com, and he only had 2 during the regular season. Wasn't there one in the playoffs as well? Hmmm.

Yeah, he did a lot of East/West stuff, but he made some things happen. He had some long returns that weren't for TDs. He made some pretty poor decisions, too, and the one against NE was unthinkable.

I think someone will fall into the role pretty well, and as you said, protecting the football & playing smart will get the most love from Cowher.

Whatever you think about the dancing around, bottom line for me with PR is not turning the ball over. ARE was pretty damn good, and had some big time returns - keeping us in the game vs JAX, and the DET one was big. He is one of the more dangerous Punt Returners in the League, and that will be missed, but as someone said, we wont be losing any sleep over it.

.
the video does a great job of highlighting about 8-10 critical and gamechanging plays by el throughout the year. his contributions were far greater than just his numbers would suggest.

I'm not sure. But to these people who suggest Sinorice Moss.. why?? All he is basically is a punt returner, and other than that he would be of hardly any value. He is so small that i just cant see him being productive in the NFL. When we adress WR, I'm lovin Nance

santana moss (sinorice older brother), steve smith, ward, they are small and have value. i know i talked shit in the past about small wrs but they are starting to dominate. the big guys are some what overrated now a days. sinorice is a speed burner and doesn't need height, he can just run past everyone and big ben will just air it out to him. don't sleep on midget wrs like i have in the past, they finna take over
