Default Sanders to do PR?

I still think AB is the better returner, but obviously Sanders is capable and not our top receiver, maybe we should move Sanders into that roll due to the drop off in off productivity we had after AB left the game.

At this point I think we let Sanders and Rainey handle returns, and let Brown concentrate on clutch plays at receiver.

I think Sanders is well capable, but I think Brown is too much of a game changer to take him off PR. He's a threat to take it to the house every time he gets his hands on the ball. He has excellent field vision. His punt return stats would be unreal if we didn't get so many flags on special teams, especially fouls that aren't even close to the ball. He's had what? 2, 3, 4 PR TDs called back over the past couple years now? You can't replace that kind of ability. Sure, you run the risk of him getting hurt.. But don't you want your best play-maker to have the ball in his hands as much as possible?

I'd like to Sanders back there more often - if I recall correctly, during their rookie years, both were going to try and have the chance to return punts - Brown just did such a good job - Sanders didn't get the same amount of reps. He showed once yesterday he has the ability - except that fall down he gave the kicker - so to keep AB safe, I'd like to see him try a few more to see if yesterday's return was a fluke.

Brown hardly sucks, lol... No, Brown staysback there, but its great to have flexibility and know people can step it up at anytime.

I'd say don't fix what's not broken, if AB is healthy, have him return punts. sanders has done well in his place and it's good to have someone capable in his stead, but don't change a thing.

next year the job is probably rainey's though
