Sort of reminds me of Hokie Gajan. Probably won't drop the ball alot.
Now there is an idea. Why not?
let's all think back.....
only real decent returner we have had is Skyler Green. when he had his ankle issues, we tried the X-Man, and we all remember what happened in Georgia.....
thing is, I do not understand why we insist on having DBs in there trying to catch punts. What about Scott or Williams?
Why not Hester? Give him some running room, and he'll plow through them like a bulldozer.
Maybe Cholly Mac knew something that Miles doesn't.
that's strange you said that. During the game I thought to myself with a little size, hester would remind me of Hokie. the guy has heart. I'd love to see him play kick return. it might work who knows.
I don't think Hester is fast enough to return kicks. He runs hard and I love him as a player, but seriously, what would he provide on KR other than "not dropping the ball" if that is all we needed out of a return man then why not just but Busta, who has the best hands on the team, back there and tell him to get what he can? You want your returner to have ball security, yes, but speed, quickness and acceleration are necessary. Early Doucet and Trindon Holliday are the answers here. Sure, Early killed us with the safety coming out of the half, but he'll never make that mistake again. At least I would hope not. The next return he had was great, he got us good field position by making a couple of nice moves.
Trindon Holliday. hes already back returning kicks. he muffed one punt and I havent seen him since. this kid is electric
Heh... Are we talkin about the same kid here? Hester has got skills but he plows through nobody.. Especially when he's throwin a block. I see him as more as someone who bounces off people and gets yardage after they thought they had him stopped.
Please don't take my post wrong, I like him and find him to be quite effective for the team.
Doucet is not a DB...he is a RECEIVER...see this for an explanation of what a receiver does http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wide_receiver. He is a "pass catching specialist". I guess that does not include an easy kickoff or punt.
I completely lost it when doucet dropped that ball. Thats all this boy does is catch the ball...and then run. That was my turning point in the game. But hey...i know i couldnt do any better so who am i to complain??
Lets beat KY Saturday and then we can all be happy!!
