Who do you think will get the job of punt return/kick return. We really need stand out at that position. I've read on here that Holmes might compete for the job, has anyone heard if Mendenhall might get a shot as well? We really need to pick it up on Special Teams.

I seem to recall that when he was signed, Mwelde Moore's name was touted as a returner. Apologies for ant spelling errors.

Now that you mentioned it I do remember that also it was reported in one of the Burg's papers that we were looking at Mendenhall because he reached his top speed so fast.

Yeah, I believe it was Mewelde that people believed would be the returner. I think he can do a good job at it. I would much rather have him do it over Holmes. If Holmes gets injured returning punts then that's a big hit to our offense.

Yeah, I beleive that is why we signed Moore.

Moore, Bloom, Reid.

Those are the 3 main options.

Yeah they said Holmes would be returning punts and Moore and Maybe Mendenhall returning kicks as well.

no correct me if im wrong but Holmes WANTS to return punts

why have our first round pick return punts when other guys are capable?

and no Reid is not capable to me.

Aka Moore and Bloom

Mendenhall is not capable of doing it imo. And in his senior season at Illinois, he rarely did if at all, I don't remember.

Holmes, Moore, Reid.

id rather not see one of the bigger stars taking the returns, i really like bloom as a return man and from what i heard moore isnt bad, i dont trust reid back there- i want to see bloom and moore get the bulk

I've never really payed attention to moore and his punt return/kick return abilities, but almost anyone will be an upgrade over last year.
