Coach Kelly stated that P.R were a bit watered down due to a lack of depth. So in this coming season, should we expect way more out of our P.R game? Seeing as though depth should not be an issue.
Its time to put up or shut up on punt returns. I never bought the no depth excuse. When you let the coverage unit run unimpeded toward the return man u get fair catches. For God sake hit them at the line
Punt return game has to better, period. I don't want to hear any more excuses.

While some say it might be semantics, I think the issue was that the guys who had practiced on the punt return team were moved to starting roles due to injuries that occured in fall practice... specifically the defensive backfield. Then, those guys were removed from the punt return team so that they didnt' have to 'multitask' when they were asked to start on defense with very little to no experience, and this occured pretty darn close to the start of the season.
When looking at the option of preparing a defensive backfield for starting roles or continuing to work these guys on PR... I think the coaches made the appropriate decision.
But, I agree with the fact that it has to improve and there cannot be any more excuses for this not being a priority in camps. We have more experience in the Defensive backfield than we have had in a long time, and we have a solid group of guys coming in. I would not be suprised if we see someone else returning punts either... didn't Redfield do some in high school?
