Default Sanders to return kicks/punts next year?

http://www.steelersdepot.com/2012/02...punts-in-2012/

Sorry Antonio you didn't do that well, we really prefer you try to make the all pro team solely as a wr?lol Also Antonio we rather start from the 20 as opposed to the 27-30 and let Ben get more stats, lol So we will go with sanders, at least through the 1st preseason game or until he gets hurts running to the buffett line. Plus Antonio if you make the probowl again, it just means we get more pressure to sign you long term from our idiot fans.
What you guys don't get is, if we get rid of all wr's we have to run the ball, lol

I know the Rooneys are Obama lovers but they don't have to start running the team like Obama runs the country, now do they?lol

How bout we give this a chance? Brown is too valuable as a receiver to risk injury on Special Teams. If it works out then it will be genius, if not then everyone can rip the front office or coaches or I don't know how but Ben? Really pad his stats?

BTW we were near the bottom in starting field position, so even though Brown was all pro there are other factors to starting position. How bout this next year we cut our own turnovers and the defense create a few.

It was a comment about Ben, I was running out of material, lol Starting back further gets more stats blah blah.

If the stats show his output is less, what is there to try? If Sanders is as fragile as he has been the last 2 season, why put him out there more? that dude may get hurt while he sleeps for we know.
I would think there are other areas of this team that need to be addressed, not the All pro return man, lol

Brown is now the number 2 receiver on this team, maybe number 1 by the time the season starts. Why risk injury not to mention additional wear on his body when he could be more valuable on the offense. I am sure this is just the first answer to who will be the return man, and does not mean he could not do it on a limited basis.

If the Steelers are confident that Wallace is going to stay, this move makes perfect sense. If Wallace is gone, I don't even want Sanders to be the return man. Too much risk to lose your No.2 receiver.

Exactly Kan_t. This is just a first look at the position. Read elsewhere that Gilbert is going to the left side can anyone post a link.

Thats fine, if we sign him he wouldn't return kicks anyhow, no point in risking injury if we are going to pay good money for him.

Yeah, I think this is what it boils down to.

Pretty sure Antonio had 1,000 yards on kick returns.
