    Similarly you could ask why use Crayton as a punt returner? He has a big role as a WR. Why chance injury with him?

    OK Doomsday, if it turns out your right, he's probably not going to make it to the practice squad.

    I think we as fans have a disadvantage at evaluating players due to limited viewing opportunities.

    The red highlighted area in your thread is an unfair accessment. Our viewing and his limited playing time is not for us to draw that conclusion.

    We got 2 more games, let's see if he is givien his chance and if so, what he can do with it.

    True, but our options were limited. I love Newmans ability back there fielding punts but no way.

    Pacman should be the punt returner. There is nothing that changes a game like ST TD's and game changers. This should take priority over his time at CB IMO because Jenkins should be able to cover the gap if need be.

    If he was just an average returner and a great CB that was not going to break any big plays then maybe I would worry about him getting injured but that is just not the case.

    Because according to Jimmy Johnson, the game has three phases--offense, defense, and special teams. And you want your best players out there in all three phases.

    I agree we don't get to see these kids at practice like the coaches do and what we see in pre-season is limited to a few snaps unfortunately many players just don't make it based on those few oppertunities. I like the kid and I hope the best for him but honestly I don't see him making the 53 man roster I don't think he is one of the top 5 WR on this team. As for a return man he is not any where close to some others who will make this team. As you said though he will get at least 1 more maybe 2 more chances depending on him getting past the 1st rds of cuts that will be coming up after the Houston game

    Don't think he can be put on PUP list. That is done for players at the beginnning of TC. After TC starts, it's IR or released.

    Adam Jones is not on the team yet, and may not be for four regular season games. Until Goodell removes the suspension he is all "potential."
