Besides, that's yet another "strength" of Armanti's that's been filled elsewhere. If you don't think Joe Adams will be returning punts for us this year barring a fumbling epidemic, you're very much mistaken. Let's see, the top return guy in college football last year or a converted D-II QB that ranked last in the NFL last year on punt returns. Hmmm, let me think about this.

He was able to field over 40 punts last season without mishandling one. With our offense's ability to score this is highly valuable, especially considering the dropsies that have plagued Joe Adams. We may end up needing him more for what he's already proven he can do than anything additional he may or may not bring to the table.

He was one of the worst if not the worst returners in the NFL last year....so how is that being spun into a positive? Bc he didn't fumble?

And our O could of used ST help last year...we needed to score more

If Tutu was a second round pick, he would have people defending him too.

There is absolutely no defending AE. He has no NFL skills and that's a fact. You can't talk about his PR skills because he had an historically horrible punt return average last season (5.5 yards per return!) and he may not even be the backup since Captain is much better than him (10.9 yards per return!). You can't talk about his receiving because he hasn't caught anything since drafted and everyone in front of him is much better. You can't talk about him being a backup QB because he wasn't drafted to be one and will never be one and doesn't have the skills to be one. He is just a wasted roster spot like Clausen who contributes nothing to the team.

SMF is in the right here.

That is in your opinion and clearly the people who make those decisions have a very different opinion, which is really all that matters
