Hall to IR, Southward to active roster

Special teams what?

1. 95% of kickoffs result in a touchback.

2. He's never blocked a FG.

3. [I dont have stats to back this up] But there can't be many teams with a worse punt return unit than ours.

4. That just leaves punt coverage. Does he really shine enough during those 4 plays per game (minus fair-catches) to take up a roster spot?

Everyone says "special teams", but Im still not entirely sure what he does well. 

 

I dunno dude, maybe he has embarrassing photos of Rivera at the Christmas party.

He definitely does, but I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. We did kind of need the roster spot for a safety and with Cox on the active roster and healthy there wasn't much opportunity for Hall to play.

Right.

Am I in the minority here or does Hurney pull the IR trigger way faster than Gettleman did?

 

Hurney pulls it faster than anyone

wait, so we are rostering coleman, adams, jones, byrd, cox, and southward? That seems like a lot.

Cox reminds me of Mike Minter a little. Southward sparked a little in the offseason. I wouldn't mind seeing if either of them are legitimate.

I'd rather see Jones released, and have Hall recover  vs going on IR, I don't think there were any serious reports regarding  injury.

Yes, yes he does. 

And in my personal opinion in most circumstances that’s a horrible thing.

Southward showed promises during pre-season and the safety help is in more dire need. 

Good news is that Butler or KK can slide outside and take some of Halls’ rep

What reps? He has been inactive 3 out of 4 games and played 9 total snaps.

This. I think this was more about giving Hall a de facto redshirt season than it was about a true season ending injury. I just don't think the staff felt that he'd be ready to contribute significantly this season. A little concerning about a 3rd round pick, but hopefully it's just that we're confident in our DE depth. Hope it doesn't bite us in the ass.
