Okay...coach Richard Rodgers has done a nice job with this unit......now he has some different things to consider for 2014. Gano and Norman are the strengths and should continue to be so. Getting Colin Jones back retains a solid player for him....now the question. This team needs decent field position with the offense they run and can't afford to constantly be pinned back. So take your pick...Barner and Pilares seem to be the guys.....maybe give brown,underwood or whom a try? Ginn at least was a threat to break one back there,but I doubt Barner or Pilares can ever provide that. Over looked, but important aspect of the game....one outstanding return can turn any game on a dime...so what does the all mighty huddle thinks will be the answer.

I'm hoping for Underwood to win the job honestly. I really feel like he can be a good replacement for Ginn.

I have no confidence in Barner.  Im hoping g man pulls another rabbit out of his hat.

Cason has done PR before if I'm not mistaken.  Phily Brown should be battling the likes of Barner, Pilares, and Underwood.

Really glad Josh Norman isn't a strength or we would be screwed.

Rodgers has done a terrible job here. Our schemes on ST have been turrible.

We have a bunch of aces playing ST across the board and the jimmies and joes over x's and o's theory rings true yet again.

I must say. Most ST threads are a little lame in their scope and theme. You sir have asked great questions and delivered succinct content. With that said I think we have many options and the guy returning kicks will change frequently until week 7. Then I believe we'll settle on someone. I'm thinking Underwood or Barner. I'm not sure Pilares will make the final roster.

I apologize for the grammar. Phone is turrible.

I have a feeling that we scoop someone up before the season starts to return kicks. either that or philly brown/pilares is our returner. I really don't have faith in the returners that we have at our disposal.

3 years, nearly $10 million. 


You have to let him go with our cap situation. 


I think Underwood is the replacement.  I Do not know how to replace Ginn's production on a budget.

Underwood has elite speed but not elite acceleration. Not sure he's a good fit as a return man.

This will be an interesting camp battle as it might make or break someone's chance to stay on the team eg Pilares.

I'm all in on Pilares as a dark horse to be our #5 WR and KR. He has all the skills to be our Doug Baldwin, in my opinion.

Has Underwood ever even returned a punt?
