Default Is it time we try out Brown on punt returns?

Randle El muffed 2 punts in 5 games. I'm thinking in that department, brown can't do much worse and has more ability to make plays. I know we're putting El back there as a safety blanket, but it doesn't seem very safe.

I've been saying this since the Tennessee game. The only reason for ARE to be back there in the first place was to avoid rookie mistakes. But he's terrible at returns, and shaky when fair-catching it. Time to give Brown or Sanders their shot.

I agree with you guys up there ^ ^, but I also wish we had a Punter that would or could pin the other teams down inside the 20 yard line like other great punters seem to do against us over and over.

Its probably already a situational thing. If we can risk it (ie up a score or two) and the punter isn't holding back to pin us deep and thus there is room for a return I think we'd see someone other than Randle El very soon.

Their punter was punting from the 40 and 50 yrd line. We dont have a problem at the punter position.

their punter was using the "aussi roll".

perhaps our punter should learn the "aussi roll".

(not to be confused with sushi or the california roll).

One of Sepulveda's biggest strengths was always pinning opponents inside the 20. He was known for that in college. I haven't really paid too much attention to that this year though. Maybe Tony's right about the sushi roll.

Sepulveda has had some great clutch punts this year, but the general assessment is that he won't be 100% until maybe next year. He supposedly still doesn't trust his plant leg completely.

I agree with you that we should be conserving our natural and digital resources, and start using smaller fonts.
