    The guy you are referring to is named Al Roberts. Oddly enough he was coaching a high school team when Scoot hired him for the ST job. Heh, of all the things that Scoot did and didn't do this one hire of a high school coach may have been his one shining moment. Go figure.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Wow. I didn't know that!

    It has been pretty solid. Stanley has become a good returner. I'm excited to see him return next year.

    is hard to see whose responsible for that...you gotta give Al Roberts Kudos for it,but i think Gary Stills should have them to!


    the thing with him coaching a High school team,was from what i recall about it, was more about him wanting to help kids who havent had the oppurtunities that others have rather than him only being good enough to coach a HS team!

    We may seem better, but we are definitely not.

    We are 22nd on both offensive punt and kickoff returns.

    For return defense we are 2nd to last in kickoffs and 24th in punting. Our net average for punts is 4th best thanks to Donnie Jones' league leading 49.7 yards per punt average. So we can thank him, and not Al Saunders for the one bright spot on our special teams. Let me quote an article from a few weeks ago:

    Soon after his arrival, Jones had a conversation with special teams coach Al Roberts. Roberts was up front with Jones, telling him that he didn’t know much about the intricacies of punting but that he’d help Jones when asked.
    Wow, really? A ST coach knows nothing about punting? Pathetic. He will be thrown out with the rest of the trash this offseason I guarantee.

    Why is Looker returning punts? He has no moves and has the elusiveness of a sloth.

    22nd is an improvement over being last.

    NTM we haven't given up a return touchdown all year. When was the last time we could say that? The bottom line is that our STs are improved this year and compared to the garbage we used to put out there, demonstrably improved.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    With the chance of upsetting the apple cart here, I don't think the stats tell the whole story. One thing I have noticed in our special teams is we are not as stupid as we have been in the past. That may have only gotten us to 22nd, but in terms of confidence I think it makes a huge difference.

    NTM the tackling has on coverage has been a whole lot better. It's actually been fun to watch them on returns and not giving up a lot of yards and making some good tackles.

    NTM that the longsnapper has only botched one snap in his 7 seasons with the Rams.
