Definitely agree, as bad as special teams were I think a lot starts with the returner though

Look at our last couple punt returners -

Reggie Bush - runs sideways
Darren Sproles - runs sideways
Brandin Cooks - runs sideways

How are the guys on special teams supposed to set up blocks without getting called for holding when the returner doesn't head upfield, just runs sideways looking for a gap.

That's what I like about Jalen and why I think he was successful, he didn't need a huge gap, he trusted his blockers and went with what he saw.

We haven't had a kickoff return TD since November 15th, 2009... But Saunders was soooo close last season. I look forward to him ending that drought this year.

We haven't had a non-offensive TD since week 17 2012. Any change that helps us get some of those will help us tremendously, and I think Dennis Allen might be the key!
