    Receiver Bobby Wade returned 33 punts for the Chicago Bears two seasons ago but last year was asked to perform the duty only three times while playing for the Titans.....

    ....the Vikings used Wade as their primary punt returner and he averaged 6.7 yards on three attempts.
    We need Memo back returning punts.

    Mewelde will probably suit up this weekend if CT can't go, so I would wager a guess that he'll be returning punts, and with Adrian probably starting wouldn't be surprised if Wade was returning kick-offs.

    I agree, Moore is better, Wade starts a WR, Moore is backup RB, and Wade has a history of fumbling.

    True, Memo should be back there if suited up.

    We know Memo can run, but what we don't know is what the coaches know.
    He must have a flaw.....

    No, Sno,
    No flaw.
    At least in his PR abilities (or even all around abilities for that matter).
    Mewelde is a good returner, and there should be absolutely NO reason that he does not suit up.
    If he's injured, that's one thing, but to take him outta that role to put Wade in it, well, that's stupid!

    Every time Atlanta punted, my friend and I both winced on each return.
    If we keep Wade as a PR, he's gonna lose the ball.
    I am so much more confident with him going over the middle, than returning punts.
    It's just that history tells me that.
