    What worries me is Ryan's habit of line-drive punts and having Reggie Bush return them.

    I jus hope ppl don't blast Koren if he can't produce. Watch the wedge or lack of I should say. Hard to run when no one is being blocked lol

    I'm really disappointed in our STs. With the huge turnover in personnel this year, I would have bet that we'd see improvement in that area. But no. So why not hold the STs coach responsible? It's his job to kick *** when these guys can't cover their lanes. It's entirely possible that we have the WORST STs units. Worst of all, there doesn't seem to be any bit of improvement showing. This unit will cause us grief all year. My opinion is that our coaching staff leaves much to be desired.

    What worries me more is the coaching... Sunday we will see what difference it makes from having a real coach like Sean Payton and the lost guy that we have...

    Agree to some point Cham. If we do like we did last week. Coaching staff is not doing their job.

    I don't understand why we just don't punt it out of bounds every time

    Learn something new every day there eh Trom? :)


    If there isn't any progress, I have to think the coaching staff is doing something wrong. Just my opinion tho

    Was abit to be expexted, and Ryan said he'd have to work on his hangtime. In the CFL hangtime isn't nearly as important

    I definitely agree there should be improvements (coaching,punting,etc)

    and if there isnt, thats a problem.

    I don't know if the punter is the problem, I'd say it's the coverage unit. IN the preseason game vs the titans, Ryan was averaging 55 yards per punt at one point, with one at like 69 yards, and the one before it had a 5+ second hang time.

    Of course that's preseason, but the guy has the ability. What I see on our punt coverage is a lot of guys missing tackles.

    as for our punt returner, our wedge sucks...

    He is a real step up from bj"5 yard shanks" sanders....the kid has a great leg and a real future in the nfl. The coverage team worries me with the large gaps up the middle.

    We saw the same thing again in the game vs the saints. Decent punts and hang times and TERRIBLE coverage. How about just hitting the ball carrier to start.
