    Special teams are not that special

    Once again the special teams play has let this team down . They freakin suck , and that is all there is to it .
    This game is not that significant in the larger scheme of things , but omg , why can we not fix the special team blunders ?
    Jeff Reed has got to find a new team ! He can not even reach the endzone on a kick-off , and that is hurtfull to our team .
    What is 3 points compared to 6 on kick-off returns .
    We are still the champions i know . Something has got to be done with our special teams play , and i mean now .
    To myself , this was a plain downright special teams breakdown loss once again .
    It,s not too late to fix it now , but it is not too soon either !
    Special teams SUCK !!!!!!!!!

    Kick returners lick their lips when they see us on the schedule.

    Don't you get a sense of dread and fear everytime Reed kicks off? I am almost shocked when the returned is actually tackled in his own half...

    Reed's kickoff's are terrible, the average starting position for teams is about the 31 yd line. He can't kick them deeper than that 10-15 yd line for whatever reason.

    The kick off coverage is terrible, 3 KO's returned for TD's in half a season is pathetic.

    DSep is doing well atleast and the punt coverage units aren't quite as bad, but still in general this unit was the difference today in a close game.

    I think I would honestly bring Petr Czech back. His kickoff hit the endzone and although I have no stats, I think he was good with field goals. If they don't want to get rid of Reed cut Carey Davis, we wouldn't be the only team to have a kickoff specialist.

    As i said earlier, D Sep needs to start practicing kickoffs in practice and start kicking off.

    I never thought it would be possible but they are worse than last year. I was so excited before the season thinking we would be way better with D-Sep and Logan.

    Yeah Spec. teams was horrible but what about the offense in the redzone all day and not punch it in once. I blame the lose on the offense.
