    Kinda dependant on the punter as well. The good ones can make it pop straight up or even backwards.

    Someone explain Mariani on IR to me... is that season ending IR??? Or can he return?

    I thought he would be ready within a couple weeks.

    Year long.

    There's really nothing to explain other than its a loopy af decision based on trying to keep him around for next year

    Read all the messages and discussions we were having so you can actually know what I was referring too! I was referring to MM fumble against the broncos that cost us that game a few years ago!

    I thought that was changed last year. It was my understanding we can bring one IR player back.

    Yes. There is a tag that is useable for that. However you have to implement that designation WHEN you place them on IR. you can also only do it once. We did not use it on Marc

    Seems like this would have been a perfect place to use that designation though.

    It does if you want to send Frenchy packing. They didn't want to I think. They also didn't want to send Marc away just yet either... If they did use it on Marc (returner and we've got a suitable guy starting already) then we couldn't use it for like say if Ayers or brown get hurt but still could come back.

    I'd personally rather them keep it for a bigger role player than Marc. Plus this gives the most options. Keeps him here for next year (keeps him paid) and we can review the situation next year.

    Reynaud wasn't that bad last year. He made a few silly decisions later in the year tho. He was trying to create a spark. The coaches reigned him back in tho. The fans just remember the bad stuff more.

    Go look at his return yards for last season. Top 5/10 easy.

    I just worry. How many guy comeback after two years out of football? He won't even be able to practice with the team. I agree with you that it should be used on a bigger role player. I feel had he not broke his leg he may have become a bigger role player for this team. It was discussed earlier and I think he brings more to the WR position than reynaud does to the rb position. We are deep at receiver though.
