    David Palmer for sure, but I'll have to say this, it was very electrifying to watch Koren return kick-offs last year.

    I hope he pulls the same duty this year, he is a very speical kickoff returner......

    Go Get Um KOREN


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Eddie Payton or David Palmer.. They were both good..
    I thought that Eddie was JUST a KICKOFF return man...I don't seem to remember him returning punts.
    Eddie Payton led the team in punt returns from 1980 to 1982. Not as high of an average as Palmer and never ranked higher than 13th in the league.

    Leo Lewis ranked much better, leading the team from 1987 to 1991 and ranked as high as 5th in the NFL (1987). In 1988 he had what at the time
    (through 2004) was a team record 550 yds. He is also the team career yardage leader with 1,812. David Palmer leads with 2 career touchdowns.

    Payton was very exciting to watch..I didn't know the stat line for him.
    I remember him being asked what it was like having such a famous brother....Eddie replied....I dunno ....go to Chicago and ask Walter :wink:

    After seeing the stats, I say Palmer hands down...too bad he got injured so early in his career.

    I think David Palmer was pretty exciting - too bad he got hurt and retired so young.
    ditto. i do not remember any outstanding returners back in the day.

    I miss David Palmer, but didn't Moss have 2 TD's in less than 10 total punt returns (I could be very wrong there, but I know he was effective when used). That's pretty efficient.

    Moore's not bad right now, neither was Burleson.

    Jacquet and Walters were both weak.
    Walters is doing alright with the Colts now, but he wasn't very good for us.
    Yah, Moss is very good at it.. Just didn't wanna risk losing your potential hall of fame WR due to a punt/kick return
