    Cobbs cause Ginn is good but honestly needs to focus more time on receiving then returning. Also we don't need him to get hurt after all he is the only real deep threat on the team.

    with the very little kicks he returned toward the end of the season, cobbs proved last year to be the best KR/PR on the team
    I believe any man's finest hour - his greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle...Victorious

    if your going to do it, you do it the other way around with Cobbs on punts and ginn on kicks since Cobbs is quicker than ginn.

    Ginn isnt quick enough for returning punts and making the first guy miss, which was the reason Bess returned punts. During kick returns you have more opportunity to gain speed while having about a 15 yard head start (better for Ginn) before the first defender is near you while you only have about 5 on punts (Not good for Ginn)

    I'm hoping we draft a return specialist. If not, then I'd go with Cobbs.

    Ginn is the fastest person on the team lol, probably one of the fastest in the NFL. I'm pretty sure they let Bess return Punts because that would be too many jobs for one player.

    Ginn. This team is going to run the ball more and with Penny @ QB they utilize the short passing game. Ginn needs more touches!

    they let Bess return Punts because Ginn is not as quick as Bess... Faster yes, quicker, DEFINATELY not, and you need quickness on punt returns to avoid the first defender, which Bess does better than Ginn. They also took the return duties away from Ginn and gave some of it to Cobbs, who actually faired to be a better kick returner than Ginn as well.

    In a perfect world, you have Ginn returning Kicks (as long as he learns how to return kicks as he still doesnt seem to understand returning kickoffs fully) and Cobbs return punts.

    Usually, the tougher player does punt returns. Because there's so much less room to run, the PR often gets drilled right away. So you generally don't want some wiry guy doing it. Ginn's no good to us if he's broken in half.

    I liked what Bess did, and I do think he's tough enough. But I don't want to see him get injured, because I think he's worth too much as a receiver. So I say let Cobbs handle KR and PR duties.

    As a side note, keep in mind that, as per the agreement reached at the owners' meeting, the wedge is gonna be illegal from here on out. So that changes the KR game considerably. What we saw last season and in 2007 is probably not even applicable anymore.
