I know I was.

The only way Holliday should've even tried to field that punt was if it was short and he was coming under it with a full head of steam.

Othwerwise, get the hell away from it.
That was a perfect scenario to give him a shot. The worst case happened, he lost the ball. And it cost us nothing in game terms.

The Vikings have 3 KR/PR TD's. We have 2. Every other team in the league has 1 or less.

Except we had to switch from man to zone thanks to DRC greediness.

That falls into the "more plays equals more injuries" dynamic. Which is a silly thing to lay on Trindon. Our entire gameplan maximizes the number of plays in a game. If the goal is to avoid injury, we'd better rethink that whole thing.

Think of the TH return attempt in comparison to say a halftime hail mary. If you had the ball at the 50 right before half. Do you throw it up and risk someone getting hurt that play? Or do you 'play it safe' and pack it in, because someone might get hurt?

If you ask me, that's a stupid rule, that you can't return a muffed punt. If the ball is live, meaning the other team can recover it, by all means they should be able to advance it and score if possible. Whoever made up the current rule is a f'n retard.

I could be wrong but I think it's like that due to years ago people used to attempt to scare the returner by running up near them or blasting them even with the fair catch signal.

That rule has never made any sense to me -- why SHOULDN'T they be able to advance it?

We don't have time for Holliday. We need a vet returner that can just catch the ball. Welker stinks at it. He muffed one earlier in the yr. If the Broncos put Holliday back there again then they are taking a huge huge risk. He's a big reason we have 2 losses. His football awareness stinks. He's fast that's it.

Look how Holliday holds the ball. Looks like 6th grader playing flag football. That is not how you tuck the football in.

Trindon Holiday on kickoffs?



Trindon Holiday on punts?



Seems obvious, not sure why the Broncos coaching staff can't figure it out.

What's that even mean? You are saying I'm not a Bronco fan? Anyone who wants Holliday taking a punt in a big game probably likes to run with the bulls also. It's exciting but not smart.

its because the returner is often all alone, and the thinking was an entire team should not have to suffer because of one isolated player.
I think its lame too. but just wanted to elaborate on why the rule was implimented.
BOTH welker and Holiday FAILED to execute their forst priority, CATCH the punt, yes, it was windy, but both players FAILED to move their feet and get under the ball!
uncertaimty / cowardiss.
holiday routinely lets the punt bounce in front of him and seems too resistant to make a fair catch.
welker can best be discribed as a reluctant replacement.
Remember when shanny would get so frustrated that he would just send rod out to just fair catch the damn punt and was NOT ALLOWED to do anything else other than catch the ball or let it go? !
we may be at that point.
I would be dissapointed in our coaches / ST if they were not engaged in try-outs for the position this week !
It is a serious issue !

Enough is enough. Not even bothering to call off the late 3rd quarter punt is ****ing deplorable. I don't care if they keep him on kick offs but he is a major liability on punt return. It's only a matter of time

Punt return. Ball bounces inches beside our guys foot at the moment Holliday finally decides to waive everyone off. Hes just a waterhead
