How big is the difference between KR and PR?
Posted 08 August 2012 - 04:23 PM
is our KR. We're not cutting our new PR, who is being counted in with the other WRs.
How big is the difference in the skill sets for PRs and KRs....seems like if you could return
punts you could return kicks....is there really such a difference that you keep another player?

esp. since 75% end up as TBs thanks to the rule changes.
I've always thought returning KOs would be easier

PR requires more shiftiness and the ability to break some tackles because you have much less blocking ahead of you.

All other Panther teammates averaged 22-25 yards per kick off return.
Armanti Edwards' Historically Bad 2011 Campaign
Through Week 14 Armanti Edwards has handled all 30 of Carolina's punt returns, generating the 5.8 average per return and longest (or shortest?) return of 17 yards. Edwards was drafted by the Panthers in 2010 due in large part for his potential to break big plays with his speed, but this has not happened through Edwards' first two seasons in the league.
In fact, the opposite is true this year - Armanti Edwards is on pace to having one of the statistically worst seasons as a punt returner in modern NFL history.
Since the NFL went to a 16-game schedule in 1978, a total of 472 punt returners have matched Edwards' year-to-date total of 30 punt returns. Of those 472 players, only 17 have generated fewer than Armanti Edwards' current average of 5.5 yards per return (click here for supporting data from Pro-Football-Reference.com).
The stats don't lie - the Panthers punt return game with Armanti Edwards has not only been bad in 2011, it has been historically bad, and it's time for Carolina to make a change.

In all seriousness, I have never thought about that too much but what said fiery sounds about right.
