    Re: not so special teams

    Yup for less then 500 K Deangelo Hall would have been worth that JUST for his return abilities

    I hope Farwell is giving some pointers because he is the best special teamer in the league.. They need to watch film on Farwell if they haven't

    Yup, tied with the 1980 Lions. We should easily break the record.

    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Farwells abscence on the Special Team is MAJOR. I bet we wouldnt dig us the hole we are digging game after game with our ST performance if he was on the field. Not only is he one of the best ST players, he was the El Capitan of the team as well!

    Re: not so special teams

    only giving up one return does show some improvement doesn't it? ;D

    actually they were playing very well up to that punt return. then they seemed to lose thier confidence.

    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Hell, Ced Griffin was playing gunner yesterday, and doing a fabulous job of running right past the punt returner.

    Re: not so special teams

    As far as special team players go though, I will definitely give Abdullah credit. That kid has made some very nice plays for us this year & his name is always popping up on ST play.

    He doesn't get enough credit IMO.

    Re: not so special teams

    I agree Abdullah has been great on STs for us.. He seems to be the only one constintly getting to the carrier

    Curciu once again proves me point this game that he is a wasted roster spot

    Cedric overran a returner TWO TIMES.. He has to work on breaking down

    And Herron also wiffed on a tackle and overran one
