    yeah but wade wasnt a rookie last year was he? No, he wasn't. Pac was and is still learning...probably much improved from last year...why not give Pac a shot to do both then see where it goes from there?

    because we dont want to get our #6 pick hurt returning punts. i wish he would get back there but the coaches know that until we get strong depth at corner we cant take that kind of chance. besides... wade...when he caught the ball... had as good of an average as pac

    Wade wouldnt be the first guy that got wavied and had a great career with another team. Coach Fisher wont put Wade back there if he cant catch the ball or continues to fumble. Im hoping these problems can be cured by coaching and Fisher is as good or better than anyone coaching the return game. Pac is will have to cover our opponents #1 receiver this year so I hope someone else can return punts just to make the D better.

    And this is evidenced by our stellar return game over the past decade? Maybe my memory is failing me but Music City Miracles aside I don't recall the Oilers/Titans' return game being anything other than adequate under Fisher's regime (perhaps with the exception of D. Mase's brief stint as return man). Like I said maybe my memory is failing me on this (I'm too lazy to go look up the Titans' yearly return stats). If I'm wrong feel free to give me a smack upside the head (perhaps that'll jog my recall). :)

    nope. Fisher is on record as saying he does not use starters on ST.

    Plenty of other teams use starters on ST.

    Fisher used starters on ST last year and all of a sudden Lowrey did not look so terrible as a ST coach.

    I do recall some exciting moments last year, but I just checked and the Titans weren't in the NFL's top ten in either kick or punt return avg. in 2005.

    where are you getting your stats?

    http://www.nfl.com/stats/teamsort/NFL/OFF-RETURNS/2005/regular?sort_col_1=8

    if im reading that correctly, they were 7th in punt returns and tied for 4th in kick off returns.
