Default Rate The Special Team

So how does everyone feel about our special teams? My opinion is it seems weak and unorganized. There is too much dancing with the ball and not enough run it hard and pound it in there.

I'd call them special ed teams, but that would be an insult to special needs children everywhere. It's been a glaring weakness for years, but Tomlin is a status quo kind of guy, so I don't look to it getting fixed as long as he is head coach.

I don't get how we couldn't block their gunners even once all game. We had a few returns for a couple of yards, but really every punt could have been a fair catch

We can't win games if we don't have all 3 phases working together we can't win games.

Special teams blew it tonight. Albeit, if we have a capable QB in this game we win by 20+ pts and this is a non-issue, but unfortunately we didn't have that.

I'm not sure many people realize what a grave that our sorry-a** special teams digs for this team.
It seems like every time WE run back a kick-off, we're lucky to make it to the 20. Our opponents are consistently getting to the 30, 35, and sometimes worse when THEY receive kickoffs.
Those few times we do get the quick stop, the dummies are committing penalities to kill everything. Other teams are getting decent to great field position.
Only reason i'm not giving them an F is because Suisham is considered "special teams"

Take away that one play and we win. Of course you could say the same about Wallaces fumble.
Its a team sport. And when one phase sucks, it costs the entire team. That was clearly shown tonight.

While Suisham has done nice on FG's his consistent kickoffs to the 5 yard line piss me the hell off

First Jeff Reed and now him, unless we're in Denver, we aren't getting no damn touchbacks and it's tiring

Suisham is very weak on kickoffs and it is costing the team. I like the new punter and the return game was good when Brown was in there.
