With the firing of STC Micky Donovan I am trying to see what I consider to be a successful Special Teams.
There are many things to consider outside of the obvious like a large return for a score. Thats pretty low hanging fruit.
But I don't even know what average looks like on ST offense and defense. The ONE thing I dont want to see are fumbles. I want PK to be over 85% and punters to be in the top 4 teams.
And I want to see runbacks on punts held to about 12 yards and Kick returns to be held to about 20-25 yards. Offensivel y on ST I'd like to be past those numbers.
I'd like to at least think our returners pose a threat to score as well. At least pose that threat.
I 'd like for a STC to have a well thought out blocking and chase scheme in place.
ST are tricky to measure as it combines offense and defense
What do you guys look for when measuring ST.
The best STC I have ever seen are Reinbold and O'Shea.
