No one said he never did return kickoffs. All we did was give our opinion upon why it's not the best idea to have him return kickoffs.
As you've looked at the 2011 statistics, you will also notice that only two times was a kickoff taken back for a touchdown. Once by the aforementioned Chris Williams & once by Chad Owens. Even Marcus Thigpen who was our primary return specialist last year did not return a kickoff for a touchdown. Two times in all of 2011 & not once in the first half of 2012.
I won't speak for everyone else here, but I think the bottom line is risk/reward. Kickoff returns for touchdowns are few & far between & a rarity. The risk far outweighs the potential reward especially when you consider the diminutive size of Chris Williams and the fact that he's a starting wide receiver & returns punts & FG attempts of which all have much greater potential to be returned for touchdowns than kickoffs.
Clear & concise answer. No abuse.
Lastly, before you start calling for mods about personal attacks & abusive language etc, check who started slinging mud originally is this actual thread. It was you TommyBoy1.
I have no problem or issue with you. We're all fans of the TiCats & want to see better this season. But when you start a post with "Discuss, but nothing will change my mind" you're obviously looking for confrontation.
I play nice. But when provoked I will respond. I believe someone else said this to you as well in another thread. It's up to you to listen.
