Part of our problem this year has been the return game. Tired of Antonio brown fair catching on the 10 yard line. Hope steelers can add something to the return game next season. Rainey hasn't done much either.

I'll assume you're only talking about punt returns, because Rainey has been great on kick returns setting the Steelers up with good field position. I believe he leads the league in a kick return yard stat? Maybe kick return yards average or total?

The man is what? 5' 7" 180? That's tiny for an NFL RB...he should be nothing but a KR/PR and leave AB for WR only

It's pretty hard to return a punt when there are 2 or 3 defenders standing in your face. When brown had to opportunity to return a punt he was very good not his fault they were called for holding or block in the back.

I'd like to see Rainey returning punts. AB is too valuable to be back there next season.

Rainey is a guy who Haley wants to put in special packages, He can be a rb but I look at him as a Sproles type of player. He will be able to do a lot here given a couple more seasons. Needs to bulk up a little bit though. Dude cuts like Holmes used to, I love it, he makes it looks easy out there. He did a great job setting the offense up in decent field position this season.

Got a point. Especially with Wallace out the door.

yeah agree, kinda reminds me of fast Willie too, but does need to bulk up a little. It appears he can also take a hit, he got whacked a couple times this season and came back for more. Not saying that's a good thing, but he's one of the few who didn't miss any games this yr due to a significant injury.
