It was a great day when McMahon (pthaa - spit off to the side) was sent packing. Hate to think of how many games throughout the years were lost due to ST incompetence. I'm very optimistic too!

I can't wait to see Ginn returning kicks! I could be wrong, but I believe we haven't had a kick return TD since the '09 season when Courtney Roby took one to the house. That's gotta be the longest drought in the league.

Our Kick off & Punt coverage should improve, and the defense will benefit. The McMahon days of "We're gonna kick it, so y'all just run down there and tackle somebody" are over.

It will also keep me from breaking another couch.

We'll have to wait and see but I think the addition of Bradford Banta could be the biggest difference on special teams.

Re: Special Teams could be big difference!!!

It would really help if we can stopped blocked kicks that are returned for TDs until the NFL changes the FREAKING RULES...

Re: Special Teams could be big difference!!!

I was thinking the same with the Draft was going on. Some of these guys are going to be able to make a difference on ST's. Which is also a badly needed improvement.
