Punt Returner or Fair Catcher?


I know it's been a long week with everything that happened in Detroit but I would like to get back to talking about some of the on the field issues. I know I'm not the only one to notice this but what in the hell is going on with the punt returning? Antwan Randle El is a terrible punt returner and has been one since he arrived in D.C. What do you have to do to get  demoted on this team? I was over at espn.com looking at some stats on punt returns and it's not pretty, He's 26th overall in the league and at first glance it doesn't look too bad until you start delving into the numbers a bit. He has a total of 8 punt returns and has called for a fair catch 6 times and only fielded 2. That's right only 2 attempts with a long of only 15 yards and a whooping total of 25. Philly's Desean Jackson has had 9 punt returns with 5 fielded and 4 times he's called for a fair catch. He has a total of a 111 yards with 1 touchdown and ranks 4th overall in the league.  This is one of the things that drives me absolutely nuts. Special teams can be a huge spark for struggling offenses. Santana Moss has been on record saying that he has no problems with punt returning and in fact that it helps his overall game. As long as Randle El is back there we don't have a punt returner we have a fair catcher. For heaven's sake please give someone else a chance.
