This year, Randle El has returned 11 punts for a 5.2-yard average, among the worst in the league. He also has 11 fair catches, second-most in the league.
He catches it, hops in place 3 or 4 times and then hits the deck before anyone touches him. That is not what a punt returner does. For goodness sake, just run upfield and get a few yards.
I don't even understand what the strategy is anymore. Apparently ARE is the punt returner but Moss and D. Hall will each get an opportunity or two per game. What is this? PR by committee? Just put a guy like Devin Thomas in there or Tryon or someone who is young and fast and looking to get on the field for the playing time.
