Post Bess????
Can someone please tell me why Bess is returning punts. He has not done anything returning punts in a season in half. We must have better performance from the punt returners.

:cry: :cry: :cry:

Because we have nobody else who can return punts.

Bess is serviceable. He heads north which is what the coaching staff likes.

Seriously, what % of punts are even returnable?

Justin Miller was cut today I believe. He is a quality return man. If Miami is interested.

As far as I know he is a kick return guy, not really a punt returner. Could be wrong though.

Plus, Miami doesn't need another CB on the roster...lol.

I wasn't and havn't been happy with the pass D. You can blitz all you want but if you can't cover one on one...It won't matter, JMO

Also, I thought Nolan Carroll was going to give the hits not take them...He looked slow getting up on one of those returns...Then goes out and gets burned in coverage....

Miller is a return specialist. He's listed as a CB but I don't think has gotten a single snap at it in his CB in his career.

I should have said that Miami doesn't need another ST specialist whose "position" is CB, (Jason Allen).

Just looked up the stats and I was way off. Looks like he played plenty of CB back in the day.

Not sure if he has been injured or not, but he has hardly returned or played the last few seasons...Only 3 combined games played in the last 3 years.

Not sure he's really an upgrade, even as a return man, over Carroll/Cobbs.

Ya, saw that also....Moore got a chance and slipped....LOL

I guess I should have said we need someone back there that isn't going to be counted on to start...(Bess)

or someone that doesn't look uncomfortable back there taking a big hit...(Carroll) vs we need "him".

I like the move Moore put on though, I say give him a shot, he's not gonna see all that much time at receiver anyways

I will probably go to one of their games this season and get to watch him play. But they don't do punts in arena league so I can't scout that out for you.

My apologies, he's in the UFL (Colonials are a new team in Hartford. I just assumed it was like Arena League III).

And you wonder why the guy is in the UFL?

Hey Dave.... your dirty language filter is a little over aggressive.

In the post above, I typed the word "a-s-s-u-m-e-d" and the filter changed it to "butt"

LOL

Bess is returning punts because he has the surest hands on the team. Most of the time you're calling fair catch anyway. Bess runs straight ahead and hangs on to the ball. Unless we go out and trade for Devin Hester there is no reason to expect big things from the punt return game this year. I just want us to get positive yardage and not turn the ball over.

sums up our return game =poop!!!
no threat what so ever

why on earth we dont use cobbs as our kick returner more +if we could of traded for crayton [a 7th rnd was nothing to give up] for a 3rd/4th receiver and a punt returner , iam sure it would have been a big upgrade

Crayton is not that much of an upgrade...and why use Cobbs in the preseason when you know what he can do and he's coming back from an ACL injury? Let the new receivers and Nolan Carroll return it to see what they can do.

Calm down.

I agree Bess is a good slot possession receiver but he is not good at all in the return game. He never shows flashes that he can break one. He also has not been the most sure handed guy back there either.

Good points. Why wasn't Wallace or Moore back there? There should have been a rotation back there until someone stepped up.
