Hopefully we can get that cleaned up for next week. As fun as it was watching this
game today.. could you imagine if our special teams would have showed up? Holy crap...

It was a nightmare against the Giants and Detroit, otherwise they've been alright. I don't know how what the Giants were using wasn't a wedge, it looked like one to me. Maybe because it was four guys instead of three? We need to figure something out on special teams.

Special teams was pretty bad in the opener and that was one of the main points of that game that had to be cleaned up. I thought they had fixed the problem for the most part after the next three games but it was definitely a problem yesterday and kept the game closer than it should have. Saw the same thing happen in the Atlanta/Chicago game last night. Big returns after you score TD's just kills the momentum you have gained.

Two issues on ST (maybe three if you count the who's kicking next week):
Punt and KO Coverage: If Morstead doesn't bang for a TB, they come out for 26.8 yards. If he doesn't hang one up (fc) or OB, they come out for 16.2 yards.
Punt and KO Returns: Roby has been decent on KO's(22yds0, but Reggie just has not done anything on his chances. Call it lack of blocking or lack of vision, but a 3.9 average is just not getting it done.

It was amazing that our special teams gave up so many yards on kickoffs and the defense hung in there. If Morestead wasn't as athletic as he was, two of those kick off returns would have gone all the way. That was close, could have changed the outcome.

We've been using LB spots and WR spots more for pure position guys than ST for a while now, and we've had a lot of turnover in the ranks for the last 3 years. I'll take the trade off so far, but you're right it leaves us really weak on ST. If we stay good and healthy at WR and LB, maybe we can develop dedicated ST guys that hang around for 4-5 years. At least with Young and Roby back and active we have some hope of experience to go along with Evans and big play every now and then Dunbar on ST.

I'm sorry but maybe we need Meachem back there or Rod Harper for Kick Returns b/c we haven't done had a really good return yet either.

As far as coverage we have got to stay in our lanes and be more discipline.
