He still has a better chance of getting hurt doing returns,how many other teams have their #1 receiver doing returns?Besides,why can't Jones do the returns,he's doing a good job!?:confused:
He never got hurt returning punts his first 3 years but he broke his leg in 2004 at WR he has as much of a chance of getting hurt playing WR as he does returning punts.
You guys are being dumbasses, in the playoffs you don't play afraid to get injured.

But, I would like to see Stewart back there some like we used him at the start of the season. He doesn't get as many touches as D-Will now that he's clearly the go-to guy. He's a dangerous weapon that I think could benefit us as a returner now that he's not getting as many touches.

Any Panther fan who doesn't want Steve Smith to return kicks in the playoffs is an idiot.

We were already in the playoffs and if i remember correctly we had a solid lead at that point... not like we were down and needed a big play.
wasn't worth risking our franchise player IMO

If I remember right, our offense was pretty much gutted for that game....we're not gutted right now, in fact we have a very good offense and maybe better at RB than we've ever been in the team's entire existence. No need to risk our passing game when we have a very capable returner on the roster.
Yeah, he scored a TD in the NFC championship vs Seattle when they decided to put him in on one.

It's called planning ahead.
