    Maybe they think he can make a tackle on special teams eventually?

    good signing I think.

    The women on his facebook will be happy to hear this.
    There were a lot of upset local girls who were missing him.

    Herron is doing a really good job, a surprise to me but again a coaches decision. I think Rufus will get to pratice with the team and be a there incase of another injury.

    Eh I guess he is on pace for 16 special teams tackles

    Which is decent

    I really dislike Vinny though and even though Erin is so raw and young I think he should be up with the team for special teams duties.. He is all over the field.. We gotta stop the returns because we have been lacking in that hardcore since Farwell is out

    16 Tackles isn't crazy good but I like it that he's around the ball and in the play consistently on specail teams.

    I think Farwell would certainly help but we got guys to get the job done without him. We have been lacking a bit on specail teams and kinda have for the past few. Our Punt Returners are getting a little more wiggle room but our Outdoor kicking especailly the kickoffs with Longwell are in Question.

    The big return we had on Punt Coverage was killer but there was also some good holding going on by Charles Woodson on Robert Furgeson. The Yardage given up could be better but so could the kicking, Carolina has a guy on Kickoffs that makes the entire unit look good. I certainly think that as the season goes we should get better on coverage even over last year with Farwell.

    If Erin gets in yes it will improve

    Erin was in yesterday, I hope he continues to get those reps, I just havn't seen enough out of Farwell to think he's any type of threat. Henderson played very well on specail teams in Pre Season.
