    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    We are so deep at RB that I would much rather see someone else back returning kicks than Shontrelle. He's a big play threat, but I think it's too risky, plus we want his legs fresh for the first play of the drive.

    I would agree with you on this one.

    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    SJ might want to return kicks but I just don't see any way we let him. We have enough players that are able to do it, and we can't afford for him to get hurt on kicks and being tired.

    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    If the staff is concerned about SJ getting hurt doing KOR then why put LJ back there?

    +10000, however, he may be wanting to add that to his resume'.

    I think bodes well that he says he wants the ball in his hands.

    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    Put James White back there, not SJ.

    Will LJ really be returning kicks again this year? I know he has had some success but really don't want to end his season or have him miss a game because of a KR.

    I like seeing that he's not some ***** afraid of getting hurt.

    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    I want Jarvis West back there. Very fast and very elusive.
    Horne has stolen some of his thunder in the receiving game, so it seems like returning kicks is an area where he could really shine.

    Jarvis makes the most sense imo

    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    I think that kick return is too big of a play to bench him IMO. We are deep enough at RB to afford SJ returning kicks. When SJ is not in at RB, we dont lose the ability to pick up yards, we lose big play potential. Well, not many plays have as much big play potential as kickoff return. This all has to deal with stamina and not injury possibility, which is another thing entirely.

    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    What about that kid from Omaha...wasn't he a returner? Or the one from St. Louis? Or are those guys rs/2012 kids?

    EDIT: I was thinking Lampkin, Standard and Nealy. Weren't these guys good returners/ track guys? Lampkin I thought could help right away unless they're gonna use RS on them. Anybody know right now on these 3 or still to early to tell?

    They ought to give Lampkin or Nealy a shot at kickoff returns. I think they could potentially be just as dangerous back there as SJ.

    Re: Starter and all, Shontrelle wants to return kicks

    The best guy should be back there. Between Kirby and our best returners, we should be able to win the field position battle in almost any game we play. If it's our starting running back, so be it. Especially since he has a "bring it on" mentality about it.

    Id like it to be West too, if not Lampkin or Nealy.

    Same. Idk who will be returning kicks but I just remember how crappy I felt for Deandre jackson when he blew out his knee on a kick return. That injury cost him his NFL draft stock
