Here are some fond, but distant memories of a time when Carolina "Special" Teams wasn't considered a disparaging term.

Thanks for the great memories Michael Bates!

I'd have nothing against Armanti if he was a 7th round or FA pick up. The fact we traded such a valuable pick for him just drives me crazy.


So you blame him for being drafted?

He is the result of an idiotic, boneheaded move. I don't hate the player I hate the game.

Being tackled by a punter is different than being run down by a punter in the open field.....2 different things.


Did you watch the return, or are you taking Mr. TD's word on it?
According to Mr. TD, the punter was 20 yards behind Armanti and caught him. According to my 57" widescreen, the punter didn't have an angle, but ran stride for stride with Armanti for a few yards until Armanti acted a fool and tried to hit him with a weak stiffarm.
Armanti wasn't going to score regardless, but trying to stiffarm slowed him down enough to be taken down by the punter instead of the other players running him down.

ETA: Armanti had a lane. He hit it. It's exactly what he was supposed to do. If anyone thought he had the speed to get it done, the joke's on them.

Never understood trading a second and spending a third on a guy who would've been on the board in the fifth.

These people spend 16 hours a day arguing things they have no knowledge about. You cannot expect them to have time to watch the games.

I don't know what Mr TD said.....

Armanti had open field and a punter to beat.....and made zero attempt to make what is a fairly easy move for return men against an fairly unatheltic punter.

I don't think Armanti has speed....but if he is going to play in the NFL at punt return or WR....he needs to be able to get past a punter with open space.

Point is, there is no point having a return man if the only thing he can do is run through a huge lane. They are playmakers at the NFL level. AE isn't one.

AE was the worst returner in the NFL a season ago for ONE reason. He can't make people miss. Proven fact he can't make make the first guy miss which is Punt Returning 101. That also means he can't make the last guy miss....which he proved in his one shot.

I didn't think he would score. point is only we should have a return man that can score in that scenario. Hester caliber skills aren't required for it.

AE doesn't have speed. Doesn't have moves. What does he have? That is the real point here.....so I ask, why are you defending his lack of ability? What is your arguement? He sucks and we shouldn't of expected poo? I agree with that.....only adding his audition has been over

I love all the App State haters. They're mainly spouting off due to some short coming in their lives.

I believe he said the DB was 20 yards behind him on his long catch, not the punter. And that is true, he got caught by a guy on the opposite side of the field who actually had to slow down to get an angle.

I'd never heard of App State before we drafted Armanti. I don't care about college football. My opinion is based on Armanti being the worst PR in the NFL since he was drafted.
