    In Woodson's post-game comments, he mentioned\hinted at him returning punts again. He said "why not" or something similar. I hope MM gives him all the reasons to "why not."

    No he won't.

    Not if McCarthy is SMART about it, he won't...

    I'll tell you 2 good reasons besides injury that Woodson shouldn't be returning punts.

    Woodson has 0 punt return TDs in '07 out of 33 attempts.

    both Williams and Blackmon have 1 TD each out of 3 attempts each.

    I fully agree that since we have options that are capable and even dangerous that Wood should not be returning punts.... especially when hes a little dinged up.

    I also know that MM trusts Wood not to make a muff or fumble.

    I also know that Wood is saying this.......

    "Taking it back over next week," Woodson said of punt returning. "

    "However, it's difficult to see McCarthy exposing one of his most important players to that added injury risk again, especially considering Woodson's replacement, Will Blackmon, returned one punt 57 yards for a touchdown


    i would think though that Blackmon will be back there next week. he earned it.

    If Blackmon isn't returning punts for the rest of the season McCarthy should be fined.

    I agree. Blackmon is the guy we haven't had in a long time... The only time I'd like to see Woodson back there is if we need a fair catch. He is great at catching the ball. McCarthy wants to have someone back there he knows won't muff a punt in a key situation.

    some may say that Woodson is now not the best option for a punt returner anymore, which would mean that Packnic has not changed his opinion.

    If Woodson wants to be on the field more I say we throw him in on some WR routes. No more Punt Returns.

    I don't have a problem with Chuck coming in on punts where he is standing on the 10 yard line. He has had way more reps and shouldn't be as likely to muff a punt but on anything returnable Blackmon needs to be in there.

    well Cwood was promised this when he initially signed, i guess some WR and PR duties are what he needs to keep "Interested". We all know hes a terrible practice player but a great Gamer.

    Not at the same time. ;)

    Woodson has game smarts. I'd love to see what he can do in the open field after a well executed slant route.
