anyone who watched AE return punts.. or i guess I should say attempt to return punts as he COMPLETELY messed it up...

after he messed up 2 punts in a row... was I the only one rooting to see AE try for a third... was I the only one wanting to see just how bad it could get?

You could've put this in one of the other threads... but no, I didn't want to see him try again.

I dunno if the square has to go into the circle then the time to engineer that is not now, maybe during practice when the season is tanked because if we want to salvage this season we can even pretend to try that garbage in a real game

i don't understand why they wouldn't let him keep tryin'. I mean obviously he can do decent in camp. so maybe he is just having game day jitters. I know it sounds dumb, but he wasn't on national TV up in boone, and maybe just maybe nerves and stage fright is his problem. so give him reps until the nervousness goes away, and maybe then he will produce. I mean its only preseason. the wins don't count. so therefore the turnovers don't matter. so why not? I understand it kinda matters during the first half. we need the ball to see what the offense can do, but why not take the bulk of returns the in the second half and all in the fourth quarter?

Because they wanted to see the offense play a little.

ha.. i know, but by the fourth quarter atleast give him some more reps? by then you have seen the what the offense can do on that particular D. if the return game is just asimportant as the offense and D shouldn't it be just as important to find out exactly what you got on ST before its to late?

What a disaster. I wish the young man luck and hope he has a nice career, but its certainly looking like and awful, awful draft pick. Which i think everyone really thought deep down inside anyway.

Again... two preseason games... major position change... did everyone expect him to be superman? Just how many 2nd and 3rd round picks contribute immediately and excel?

This is the time to learn, I think I would have left him in. At this point he needs something to go his way- I think a little confidence will help him a lot.

Speak for yourself. Calling a project draft pick "awful" after 2 pre-season games is pathetic. Especially since both positions he is playing at the highest level of football is new.

I thought that Armanti did ok at WR, in fact he looked like a WR at WR.

On PR, I don't think that 90% of the people on this board appreciatte how hard it is to return punts in the NFL. Honestly, it is probably the hardest job on the field. Trying to watch the ball and gauge were it is going to land while waiting to get creamed by ST's players. It is not easy. I really question the coaches decision to even keep him in there at PR. Let someone else handle it.
