    Return guy?

    Anyone have any idea who our return guy will be now that Gilyard was cut.

    He returned just about everything in the preseason so who will take his place? Will Amendola keep the job from last season? I haven't even seen Norwood return anything so I have no idea what their plans are with him, besides 3RB ofcourse.

    I'm guessing at best Amendola will take the punt returns while Norwood will do the kickoffs.

    I bet amendola for both. That's who was doing it during the scrimmage and last practice.

    It was always going to be Amendola.

    Norwood? Not sure I want Danny out there.
    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.

    It going to be Danny per Spags.

    In preseason games, receiver Mardy Gilyard has been returning kicks, but Spagnuolo said that's not a knock on Amendola.

    "We haven't used him on special teams as much in preseason, but I'm sure you'll see him the regular season," Spagnuolo said. "He's special that way. He wants to do it. He wants to be out there every play so when you have a guy like that, you use him as much as you can."

    Thanks Rambos. Guess I missed that.

    "He's special that way. He wants to do it. He wants to be out there every play so when you have a guy like that, you use him as much as you can."

    Well, how do you argue that.

    Returns just got a lot more exciting ...

    I would not be surprised to see Norwood get a few KR...

    I argue that by pointing out that I'd like to be out there every play too.

    Sounds like a plan that the Rams may implement. I agree.

    One of the reasons I wanted us to keep Mardy was because I didn't want Amendola returning kicks. I hope we settle on a different returner, Amendola is too valuable for that.

    Re: Return guy?

    What about our DBs. Who would be a good return man from the CB / Safety squads?

    Always afraid Amendola will get killed. He dosen't know he's too small to play in the NFL.

    Justin King has taken over my special teams on madden but I don't know how good he would be on the field. I use him because on madden he is the fastest guy since gilyard and avery left.

    Re: Return guy?

    With Salas showing in the preseason that he can grab some short throws and power for a few yards after the catch through tackles, Salas might get some time in as the slot guy if Amendola gets tired. Plus it'll get Salas out there and getting some valuable reps with Sam. I don't know what Devaney's policy is going to be with keeping guys around when they want big contracts, but if Salas works out as a good 2nd string Amendola, he just might become the 1st string Salas when Amendola's contract is up.
    I believe!
