    While we've got the other thread already rolling on this topic, someone mentioned that this question may be better in a poll format, so here you go.

    Trigger's got no pole! That's why the ladies don't like you.

    Re: Poll: Should Wimberly Be Returning Kicks

    Come on guys, you should know better :-). You've got to give it a sec. The thread always gets created before you can start creating the poll and I can't create a poll in 5 seconds (I'm waiting for the response of someone saying they can because I know it is coming).

    I just wanted to be the first to give you crap. I was also the first person to vote after the poll actually appeared.

    I figured that. Every time I create a poll (I'm one of the few who ever posts them), I swear there is always some wise guy waiting to throw in a jab at having no poll as quick as possible before they know the poll can get created.

    Re: Poll: Should Wimberly Be Returning Kicks

    Count me in the group that would rather not see him out there returning kicks. Truthfully in my mind, Jarvis, Nealy and Wimberly are all great returners, but are all on about an equal level in my mind. But, of the 3, losing Wimberley for the season would be far more painful to the team than losing Jarvis or Nealy, and even if Wimberly is slightly (I only see him slightly better at best) better than the other two on returns, the marginal improvement wouldn't be worth it. Now if we only had Wimberly and not the other two, then I would be all for throwing him out there. It just is why risk it when we have such other good options?

    One thing that may be at play that nobody has talked about is the fact that it seems Wimberly wants the job. With that said, part of me wonders if he wants the job simply because he enjoys it or if he wants the job moreso to add to his future potential NFL resume (he is a Senior). There is no doubt that when you are a fringe camp guy trying to make an NFL squad, which Wimberly has a decent chance of being, being a good special teams player is VERY important. They usually try to fill those last few spots with versatile players and a solid running back who has a proven track record of returning kicks certainly would definitely help.

    Re: Poll: Should Wimberly Be Returning Kicks

    And in all seriousness, I want an option on the poll of "Whoever is best for the job should return kicks." Because that's who gets my vote, whether Wimberly, Nealy, West, or other.

    Typically you don't put your most valuable players back to return. It's not smart to risk losing a player that can have a direct impact on wins and losses individually.

    Re: Poll: Should Wimberly Be Returning Kicks

    I didn't say most valuable player, and that'd be a debate with Wimberly anyways, but the best for the job. If you're not trying to put the best product out there in all situations, then you're doing it wrong. Especially at a school like Iowa State, where special teams play can make a big difference in the outcomes of games. We need to take advatage of every single facet of the game and exploit opportunities wherever they may be. I think Wimberly will have a great year in the backfield and on special teams.
