Niles Paul on KR, Aldrick on PR. I think everyone knows my opinion of Banks, and he's doing everything he can to prove me right. The magic he had in his first year is long gone.

Why not have Robinson on both.

Trusting a TE on a KR team with hands like his would be scary IMO.

Well Robinson has hand issues too, remember his preseason in 2011? H fumbling punt returns is what led his to the practice squad. Paul isn't nearly as flashy as Robinson or Banks, but he gets the yardage by not dancing and finding the best lane to take. It's like when we had Rock Cartright returning kicks, it wasn't flashy but it got the job done. Every return Paul has feels like it atleast gets to the 30 yard line.

Exactly--and how many kickoffs are returned anyways? Santana is the only guy I trust to catch the ball on punts. There was some rookie kid cut at the end of preseason for fumbling.. I was hoping we'd get him but someone else picked him up and he's returned a coupla kicks..
What about Crawford -- hasn't he done some returns..??

He has played his way off this team IMHO. He offers nothing in the offense we cannot get somewhere else and his returns are not that good lately.

Plus he is committing boneheaded errors like taking out the kickoff and getting the the 15.

Or fielding punts inside the ten.

Well once i saw that Niles Paul was returning kickoffs, I knew that Banks's season and time with the Redskins was done.

I am glad they put in Crawford, but I want to see this continue. While winning the game because of his punt return which set up the FG in OT is great, we need to see this on a consistent basis.

I know kick offs aren't a huge deal but I'm not comfortable with Paul returning them. He fumbled and almost cost us a chance to win the game. You have to wonder if he will be back with the team. He can't catch and fumbled, but got lucky it was recovered out of bounds in his first chance as a full time kick off return man. He's a great gunner and good blocker, so possibly that saves him.

Anyways- I want Robinson or Crawford doing kick off returns with Paul blocking for them.
