Re: KR upgrade?

I agree on the idea, that sometimes speed is not all you need back there... The ability to hit the right seems, follow blocks, and hold onto the ball are also essential.... I can't count how many times Sproles "almost" took it back though... Usually stopped on a shoestring tackle...

I don't care for Sproles back there. Besides being a critical part of the offense he's also slowing down. I'd rather have someone with the ability to break one. I believe we will see some experiments in pre-season with different people.

Bush is long gone, no reason to bring him up. Start a separate forum called B&B (Bush & Brooks) go there and wallow in the past.

I'm with K on this one. He does fine back there, I just don't want to lose Sproles on a return. We've picked up a couple of burners this year. I'd like to see them take over the return duties as long as they can keep the ball off the ground...
