I thought Rogers looked promising as a wr that one year before the injury, but he did start to suck as a returner as scunge pointed out. I think he was even bobbling the ball and fumbled a time or two if I recall. I had my fill of that bullshit for the rest of my life after Ike and Colclough.

Switz seems dead reliable as a returner. May not be Brown good, but better than Rogers. Switz also is a real threat to carry the football. This has to be useful for ben when using motion to make the D show, and the little fucker really can run the ball. As a slot dude in close quarters, forget about it. Nobody beats the Switz.

Well, to be fair to Eli Rogers, Antonio Brown was doing his level best to suck at returns too. Brown was picking his spots, sometimes doing things half-heartedly out there on punts, and often times getting penalties because of his half assed celebrations. Remember that one return where he turned around and ran the last 25 yards backwards??

People want to bash Switz but he actually brought some stability and dependability back to the return game. With Brown and Rogers the past few years you never knew what was going to happen. Not making a fair catch when they should, letting the ball bounce and roll, losing precious field position, fumbling, muffing punts. Look all returners will fumble but when it gets the point where Tomlin has such little confidence in you that he has you not even trying to fair catch it??

Cam Sutton was a very good punt returner in college. I don't understand why Tomlin/Smith wouldn't use him instead of Rogers/Brown his rookie year.

Anyway, Switz has a path to a spot on the roster because of his return ability, Rogers does not. What does Rogers do to deserve a spot? Nothing.

Switzer can fair catch. He showed absolutely zero as a returner. Zero.

But yes....Switz sure can fair catch a football with the best of them.

:lol:

If Rogers gets a spot over Switzer on the roster, it'll be because he's a better receiver than Switzer......which ain't a difficult proposition at all.

Gotta be one or the other.

The Switzer Scan will tell the tale. I'll have to add rushing and return stats once the season starts, as he is a multifaceted weapon, but I do expect that he'll do the most damage converting 3rd downs much like last year.

You understand Lynch's schtick on this site, right? You can see the complexion of Switz's skin, right?

Really? You actually think Switz is going to come on like Eric Dickerson?

No. But i do think he'll be better able to channel his own inner Eric Dickerson with two healthy ankles. Obviously the two are a little different.

Dude, I can recall a time where I was sincerely and actively hoping the returner would just run away from the incoming punt as it would increase our chances of winning. The Switz being not only rock steady catching it, but also a real threat to return it is something I can't fail to appreciate.

If Switz is a threat as a returner, can you hit me up with some YouTube clips of his dangerous returns.

Thanks in advance!

Great play!

For the Cowboys.

:lol:

Switzer was active for 16 games last season.

Last year he played for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Surely he busted some big plays for the Steelers, right?

Until he screws up and KC switches it to "Jizzler" in the game thread. I'll put the over/under on halftime of Week One on that, and I'm going with the under.

Please, training camp, get here soon.
