ATLbound Posted August 22, 2010 Share Posted August 22, 2010 I think some of us fans are downplaying Weems role on this team. He's not really here to catch passes unless someone gets hurt or we go to a rare 4/5 wide set. His main role on this team is ST. So far thru the first two preseason games he (Weems) has been the only one returning kicks. As far as punt returns Weems has returned in the first half and Franks in the second half. Weems has 2 punt returns for 9 yards (1 fair catch). Franks has 2 punt returns for -7 yards (1 fair catch).Weems has 3 kick returns for 59 yards. That's an average of about 20 yards, but it's skewed because one of those returns was a squib kick for -1 yards. His other 2 runs were 31 and 28.All this according to NFL.comThese are great returns and give us great field position. If he hasn't been replaced by now, then he isn't going to be replaced in the next 2 preseason games. It's almost a given he will be on the 53 man roster. Thoughts? Anybody seeing something different?
