Punt returners need speed but, they have to be more elusive in order to avoid a collapsing pocket of protection. Kick returners need more speed than elusiveness because they generally hit the seam with fewer cuts like the Broncos' running scheme. Additionally, the PR must make quick decisions on how to handle a punt whereas a KR does not. Few KRs can make quick decisions AND have good hands too.

Punt return guy needs to be shiftier. A good punter can have a Punt returner completely surrounded by kick coverage when he catches the ball. A good average for a punt return is 10 yards. AE averaged about 5.8 yards. A good average for a kickoff return is 20 yards. AE averaged 11.7 yards.

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.


He forgets the most important stat: 0 fumbles

I take a 1 yard average as long as Cam gets the ball!

and that makes it all ok?

meh. how about making it easier for our stud QB? more points. more wins. you know....stuff that matters. we can;/t just sit back and say, "well, he didn't go backward and he didn't drop the ball so let's just keep him there." expect better.
