Electric. Had a bad drop later in the game but the dude has killer speed.
Why is Byrd back for the punts at times? That fair catch with defenders 10 yards away was puzzling.Ball drop killed a drive and hurt. However, he's a potential home run on every punt return. Personally, I think he should also be returning kicks. Frankly, he's being underutilized in the return game, which I just don't understand. Dude comes to play every game.
No offense, but it's clear what we are doing in that situation and why. Byrd has been doing for a long time. If we are decided to play it safe, then he is back there to do one thing, fair catch it. If the ball has a chance of going into the endzone, then he may fake fair catch it. But under no circumstances will he run with the ball.
Bingo, we have a winner.I know he is not a RB, but his skillset is similar to what we had with Sproles. He can be that matchup nightmare that can take a dump off and move 20 yards upfield. Payton should try to match him up against lbers as much as possible.
We may see him in the backfield more often in the future but we already have a lot of mouths to feed in the rb group and he isn't going to run between the tackles very often so him being in the backfield would easily alert the defense to bring in different personnel so he may not see an lb in coverage very often. I don't think testing that out against Davis and Kuechly would be a great idea.Bingo, we have a winner.
Will Sean Payton be able to put two and two together, however? My guess is a resounding no.
