Morstead is a real weapon, 2 punts inside the 20 today with good hangtime is huge for the battle for field position.

And I give Will a pass on missing the 56 yarder. He boomed a 50 yarder and he's been steady and reliable.

People who say that the coaching doesn't make a difference are crazy.

Coverage hasn't been the problem so much as the return game. We have been a good coverage team for a while. Looks like we are building on that

Agree, I can forgive misses over 50 yrds.

Re: Special teams

so far a return man has not stepped up. blocking is a reflection of the bench for offensive ST players. As we all know it is weak. The defensive players on the return team needs to get coached up

Arguably the best punter in the game.
