    Re: KR Maurice Hicks planning Visit with Vikings

    doesnt hurt to add a backup RB, especially if he can help return kicks
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    Re: KR Maurice Hicks planning Visit with Vikings

    Maurice Hicks isn't very good.
    His biggest problem is that he lacks great speed and that's very important for a returner if he's going to "take it to the house".
    In other words, Maruice Hicks has the speed of a fullback compared to AD
    (but then again, everybody has the speed of a fullback compared to AD
    ;D)

    I'm just saying that I don't think he'll be very good on the special team as some people seem to think.
    Speed is very important as a returner if you are going for a TD. Just look at Devin Hester, if he's past the last guy, nobody's gonna catch him. This is NOT the case of Maurice Hicks.

    Re: KR Maurice Hicks planning Visit with Vikings

    The point of returning kicks isn't to score touchdowns, its to get good field position.
    If he can get an extra 10 yards on his returns because of his field awareness, than that is good.
    Scoring is not the only goal.
    A good goal is to get the ball out past the 35.
    Anytime that happens, i would consider it a successful return.

    For punt returning lateral quickness is much more important than straight speed. Punt returners hardly ever get to run more than a couple of yards at a time, its all about weaving and dodging defenders. I think running backs are naturally more adept at that kind of running than other positions. For kickoff returns though, speed is very important.

    True, vision is very important, but I can bet my house that he won't make a TD on kick return for us. He's too slow.
    He can get a lot of yards, but never a TD.

    This guy has seen alot of returns. He has been a league leader in yards for the past two years...
    Numbers could be skewed because San Fran gets scored on so often.
