After a 56 and 58 yeard return...it is a no brainer that we need this kid to run back kicks and punts...he did return 2 for tds last year...over 80 and 90 yards...he has a great accellorator gear that leaves guys grasping and he follows blocks well. Jordy Nelson...No. 87 my sleeper for the year.

I see no reason not to believe you. The kid will get the ball this season. That we can be sure of.

I think the fact that he will not be relied upon in the passing game certainly points to him taking over some return duties

I think i'de like to see blackmon returning punts, imo he's very reliable(when he's not hurt), and returning punts is a different beast than kickoffs, you want someone back there with a little more experience. Not that i dont think nelson would be capable, just that blackmon would be the safer bet, and he's pretty damn good at it as well.

I'm thinking Blackmon for punts, and either Blackmon or Nelson for kickoffs. It's unusual for a player as big as Nelson to be a good return man, because they can't slip through the narrow gaps and make guys miss. They also don't have the abliity to change direction as well as smaller guys. But Nelson has looked so good on kickoffs that he should get consideration. A kickoff gives him a lot more time to build up a head of steam, so that his large size is less of a disadvantage than on punts.

Nelson on KR's seems the way to go so far. Blackmon on punts.

I think Nelson would be great for either punt returns or kickoff returns. Although a small sample size, his work last year at KSU and in the last pre-season game should make him be greatly considered.

The best part is, if Blackmon tweaks his foot (again), we have an outstanding returner to fill the vacancy.

Makes me a bit nervious to have jordy return kicks and punts. Grant it he has shown flashes in the preseason returning kicks but it sure looks like a good way to get the kid nicked up. What the kick returns have shown is he can break a tackle and hit a seam great ...that makes yac on the recieving end. But i think we would be better searved keeping blackmon back there and having jordy fresh for recieving duties. We could use jordy as a second tightend in passing downs. He has the size of a tightend and could really add a surehanded addittion in that role. Also a great addition to the big 5 package.

I think you put jordy at kick return and then keep blackmon at punt return just because he has more experience back there.

You play to win games. Keep in mind, Desmond Howard was MVP of our last SB win.

We have 3 guys who can get us consistent YAC - Driver, Jennings, and Jones. We need someone back there on KR duty to get us good field position. Jordy fills that role.

Blackmon can handle our punts.

But as good as Blackmon does?

I don't think so.

The thing is, Blackmon has shown a ton of potential in limited opportunities as KR, and Tramon Williams was quite good and gave us good returns at clutch times.

I'd rather have those two start as the returners, I think you have to play it safe with Blackmon's injury history, but that doesn't mean reducing Blackmon's opportunities to display his playmaking skills.
