A ruthless cleansing has already begun, and it's time to move on.

Yeah, against a crappy ST unit.

What else did Holliday do for the Texans? Absolutely nothing. Which is why they cut him. Turns out it had more to do with blocking than Holliday.

You could have brought Hester in and outside of maybe this year, he would have done nothing on our ST unit. Our returner was getting hit as soon as he touched the football.

I won't argue our ST units have generlly sucked for several years now, but an actual return man could make a huge difference. And you may be right about the Texans, but Holliday flashed while there and they let Jones go too. Both guys would've been worth the cost to outbid the teams they ended up with. IIRC though, Holliday passed through waivers so he could've been had for nothing.

For one, I hope ee hire Toub this offseasonand then draft/sign a legit return man.

This is a game that any fan of any team can play with just about any player that was at one point a free agent...

Yeah but we actually brought Jones in and didn't sign him and Holliday had a history against us and we made no attempt to sign him.

You people imagining an all-Pro returner would have done much with our special teams are imagining things.

Our last GM didn't exactly put a lot of good effort into pro scouting.

I have a feeling our new one will pay a little more attention.

(that, plus going after Holiday would've meant admitting Armanti wasn't getting it done)

Maybe because it's the player that does the signing. Perhaps he didn't want to.

We've been lucky to have a punt return and kick return for TD in the same season.

In all fairness fp, if you recall Armanti's punt at the end of the season, imagine that was either of these guys... Easy TD. Yeah, blocking has to be on point, but a runner who has a knack for finding the lane and the explosiveness to get to it and up through it makes the blocking much easier. For as poor as our ST have been, there have been several returns we've had that if we had a guy who could accelerate through the lane, it would have been returned.

Could be, but like I said, he would've been worth whatever we had to pay him to win him over.

Then again, Holliday would've been easily had, we just didn't act.
