but does anyone know why Trendon Holliday isn't returning punts??
Les Miles' has been known to be CLUELESS at times and this is one of them.
come on bayou. you're being clueless right now.
trindon does not return punts because he has the dropsies taking punts as bad as lafell does on the field.
we saw that on his one opportunity last year and his one opp this year (tulane i believe)
can't criticize the coaches for that.
I was wondering if it might be his hands, but he is a receiver...
he's listed as a receiver but he's really a back. he just can't field punts simple as that.
I know, Im just pissed that we are playing around with these pansies!
Ok, I figured there must be some reason. I've never seen him return a punt.
1. He doesn't have very good hands
2. He apparently is not very good at judging when to fair catch or when to take it.
3. Chad Jones looks really good doing it.
He returned a punt once last year and fumbled it. I think it was the USL game.
Word is he doesn't have the best hands, which is why we don't throw it to him, either. I keep thinking he'd be perfect for a WR screen, ala Skyler Green, but we haven't seen that.
Another reason may be his 5-5 and 160 pound frame. A few games returning punts and he might nor be healthy enough to play. STs is a vicious part of the game.
