"Average" special teams?
Prater is the best kickoff guy in the league and is one of only four kickers who are perfect on field goals and extra points this season.
Colquitt is the #5 ranked punter in the league in net distance.
I'm thinking our return game hasn't fared too well. First, a competent but slow punt returner. Second, No kickoff returns of note in the high altitude. Third, fumbles.
Comes out to "average."
Maybe our new returner can hold onto the ball. If so, he showed some VERY nice flashes on Sunday on punt returns. Not so good on his one kickoff return. Should have taken a knee.
