    Why can't we...

    Find and go get/find a legitimate KR/PR? We really haven't had one since the SB era.
    I see Ginn as a FA, Bush and that rugby dude... Last year Atlanta got Hester in FA.
    I just don't understand... I feel like we do not have a return weapon on this team let alone someone that doesn't fumble.
    Every time we go on SP. Teams, I'm praying, "Please catch the ball".
    Is our full time returner even on this roster? Because I do not think so.

    I sure do wish Holliday had learned to do his job and hold onto the football. I mean seriously, it's not that difficult. I was starting halfback from 3rd grade little league all the way through varsity. I'm proud to say I fumbled ONE time in practice and not once in a game. It's really not that hard to hold on.

    Anyways, I hope we can find a decent returner as well. Right now the best option on the team is Bolden but his hands scare me

    I don't know of one. But it is a skill not every cb, wr, and rb has. You have to search for one sometimes.

    Maybe we should go scout some Australian rugby players

    If a kick/punt returner cannot be trusted to play a position on either side of the ball (e.g., WR, DB, RB) as a backup during a game, he is a specialist. Kubiak has said he doesn't want more than three (i.e., PK, P, LS)

    They seem to have dealt with the Placekicker on XPA/FGA vs. kickoff guy issue. It seems they will try to find a position guy who can return kicks/punts.

    There are a dozen bubble guys who should be clawing their way to the front of the returner line in order to give coaches a reason not to release them.

    Now it's too late. Finding a KR/PR should have been one of the priorities in the offseason. There was zero investment in that area, and that's why we see zero results.

    I agree with Rod... Unless we go get creative, we are stuck with the squad we got. I'm not confident #31 (Boldin) is the guy. He's the best we got right meow...
    BTW - did anyone see that Boldin on Boldin violence last night? (LOL)

    This team simply doesn't put the investment into special teams as other teams do. It's been that way forever through multiple coaching staffs, it is what it is.

    Well we might be using Emmanuel Sanders on KR/PR

    I'm not usually a fan of putting starting skill position players on KR/PR but sometimes you gotsta do what you gotsta do.

    I'm not a fan of that at all. He's far too valuable to the offense

    It's not unheard of, off the top of my head Desean Jackson, Dez Bryant, and Antonio Brown return kicks.

    Well it certainly didn't work well when DT tried it. I personally hate this idea. To valuable a piece to the offense to take a chance on getting injured this way imo.
