Kick And Punt Returns - Hd83!?

I know HD83 is returning punts but I'd lobby for him to return kicks too. HD has blazing top end speed, Quizz is shifty but doesn’t have the breakaway speed to out run the defenders that HD does. We gotta pull out all the stop in my opinion, our special teams return game this years been nonexistent.

PS - I'd love to see the Falcons come out of that tunnel in all black! I know it'll never happen but those jerseys were amazing!

GO FALCONS!!!! SUPERBOWL or BUST!!!!

No quizz better KR he set us up pretty nice in that GW drive

Set us up pretty nice? He got us to the 28 yard line. We need top end speed to match Ginn and James. HD83 was a lethal return man a few years ago, I guess we're just scared to get him injured because we lack WR depth if he was to go down.

28 is better than the 20

I actually really like this idea. Quizz was middle-of-the pack in his average return this season, and he is very consistent in getting to the 25-30 yard line when he chooses to bring the ball out, but he's not a home run threat. I can only think of one instance all season where he got out around the 50.

We need someone returning kicks who has the potential to break a big run off, like Holliday and Manning did last week. I say stick HD83 back there on Sunday and see what he can do. And it's not like injury concerns can play too much into the logic here, because losing Quizz on a kickoff return is even worse than losing Douglas on one, in my opinion.

Agreed! HD was the kickoff/PR specialist when he was at Louisville so it's nothing unfamiliar to him. We need any edge we can get IMO. Play for the proverbial "home run" not just the single or double we may get with Quizz.

I'm even a little concerned about HD returning punts

If he gets hurt who becomes slot receiver

Only Drew Davis left --Toone has been inactive

going with only 4 WRs

Would Davis have made that catch on the ~ 50 yds line? (last drive)

If speed was the only requirement Antone Smith would be in there as PR/KR

Me too. However, don't think it's allowable in the playoff. Have to go with standard approved home/away unis I think.
