I dont like seeing Wade returning kicks or punts.
gol 'darnit near all of his fumbles came on returns...
The main thing I remembered about him ,when we aquired him, was how he fumbled on kick returns against us when he played for the bears.
I don't have a problem trying him out in preseason as a return man. He has matured and hopefully improved with time.
I know, but he has a pretty strong history of fumbling on returns.
Even in Tennessee, he fumbled the first year.
Then they took him off from the return team, and his fumbles disappeared.
Running with most of the team behind you, and being tackled from the side or behind is a lot different than being tackled head on by the oncoming team.
I don't want to see him return anything.
We can't take any chances in losing the ball on a return.
At least in the first half of the year, our offense won't exactly be putting up mad points.
That means that we may have to win some (most) games with our defense.
Giving the opposing team amazing field position isn't going to help any.
I am a Childress fan, and I am fairly optimistic for Wade in the WR role.
But if I see Wade returning any punts or kicks in the regular season, Childress will have earned a strike in my book.
