    I see the point, but having good hands is different than knowing how to securely field punts. Punters can put goofy spin on their kicks, guys have a much better shot at murdering you if you don't faircatch it, and the entire blocking concept that you as the returner are watching for is different.

    That's not saying its this obscenely tough thing to do, just that it's more complicated than kick returns or just catching a pass.

    I have read it along the way someplace in the past couple of weeks, when I stumble across it.. I will support the post. I believe it was MM or Woodson himself that stated that was part of the draw.

    But correct, Money played the majority role.

    With all due respect, I'm going to stick with what I heard from Woodson's lips instead of what was printed. ;)

    How's bout ya read the article I posted eh? I'm not going to waste time trying to prove myself when I have over the years on this very forum. If you don't trust me, that's your own issue. You should know by now that I have at least some knowledge about what I speak about. ;)

    I can't say I feel safe everytime he returns a punt. In fact I hold my breath on some of the hits. Though I can see it the other way too. He is a great return man because he's consistent and hangs onto the ball. I'll say this much that I'd rather have Woodson back there in the playoffs than anyone else.

    Maybe Greg Jennings is someone they take a look at. In the open field he could do some damage.
