A. Smith As ST Returner?

Recommended Posts

Cape Fear Cat    305

Did anyone else find themselves watching Armand Smith run the ball last night and thinking that maybe he might be a good option as a return man? The way he seemed able to find seams in the defense and quick-cut through them for more yards than he should've been able to get was pretty impressive to me. I laos liked how he batted away the hands of the Steelers trying to grab him as he sprinted past. Seems to have a lot of fight in him. I'd hate to be the guy who has to decide who gets the pink slip among our RBs.

Being a good return man is WAY more than being able to run with the ball....that is the easy part. Fielding punts in traffic is something that is awful hard to teach at this level.

He could do kickoffs.

I like this guy. He adds a bit more of that quick scat back attributes. For him to make the 53 he will have to show ST value.I like him over Poole for those reasons

I would be tempted to put Armond on kickoffs over Pilares. Or at least every once in awhile as a change up.

I guess I just hate the thought of losing a guy who has obvious talent like Smith does. It seems we have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to our RBs this year.

Despite his TD return last year, I am not against being open to a new KO returner.

H3ll fuggn yes!!!!

Dude is better than Pilares.

I need a coach who will let better players play instead of playing someone who's clearly not as good but just bc they wasted a freaking damn draft pick on them.

I agree. Pilares did decently as a KR last year, but his returns so far this preseason have been less than impressive. I think he's shown enough as a WR to keep a spot just for that, and Smith might make it as the RB3/KR. I'd hate to see Poole go, would be great to keep him as the RB3, I've liked him as a RB just a little more than Smith, but they've both been super impressive and if Smith can win the KR job that'd probably give him the edge over Poole.

Poole and smith have been promising.. I would be suprised if either made our taxi squad with a few teams in desperate for running backs.
