    A freaking legit return guy. I mean legit, a weapon every time. I swear to god if I watch another "Dancing With The Stars" wanna be stroll around on a return next year for Dallas I'm going to lose my mind.

    I would chase K-Mart out of retirement right now and venture to bet he would produce better results then AOA or another bum that has been back there.

    Who are they people? I admit, I have not had the opportunity to analyze the specialist this year. Give me some names so I can mock them!

    Who is the better receiver prospect on Arkansas, Jarius Wright or Joe Adams?

    I like Wright a little more because of his ability to play quicker in tight areas, cleanly change directions as a route runner and separate instantly out of his breaks. He’s a guy who is a little more natural catching the football as well and has experience both inside and out. The biggest question I have is, does he have the size/physicality at 5-10, 180-pounds to routinely shrug off bigger corners and get into his route on the outside as a potential starter? Therefore, anytime he’s lined up outside and sees a press, it’s an ideal situation to evaluate his ability to win off the line.

    Adams on the other hand isn’t quite as polished or sudden as a route runner. However, when you watch this guy with the ball in his hands in the open field it’s obvious he has athletic skill set needed to develop in that area. He’s an explosive vertical threat who has some savvy setting up defenders. However, I want to see him tighten up his footwork/balance as a route runner and do a better job plucking the football and securing the catch in traffic. Something he has struggled with in the past

    One player I absolutely WISH would come out is Eric Page from Toledo. To me, he would single-handedly solve both issues we have we finding a speedy slot WR and a quality return man.

    Highly doubtful he will come out, because he is still from a small school and relatively unknown. Also people will doubt him because of his size.

    Highlights from the UNI game earlier this season ..

    We have a lot of good return men, they're just too valuable to do returns. Felix, Dez, Miles and Newman all have career return TDs, but we can't use them back there. DeMarco was a great return man in college, but he's too valuable.

    Lol, you mean you're not impressed with the way AOA can run himself into a tackle?

    I think as soon as Harris' hammy gets better, AOA gets the again and maybe makes it to practice squad again.

    Murray and Felix never returned punts, which is the big one since kick returns don't really matter as much anymore with the new rule. Newman is too old to be effective as a punt returner anymore and even in his prime, he danced around too much and couldn't get upfield. Dez is the best but they don't want him back there. Should've just kept McCann but they were never sold on him I guess. Too bad, he got picked up by Oakland.

    As for the prospects, Jarius Wright is the better WR but Joe Adams is the better returner. I also like Travis Benjamin from Miami. This Devon Wylie from Fresno State is killing it this year too although I haven't watched him yet.

    I can't stand his method of jogging until everybody gets within an arm's reach of him. I don't think I've ever seen a very successful return like that, but maybe I'm wrong.
