    Logan

    I guess I missed it, but was there ever an explanation why Logan was moved off punt return duties? He was doing both in preseason, now only kick returns. Did Tomlin say why?

    Re: Logan

    He....has been returning punts all year....

    They do put Moore in when we are pinned back at time, for ball security.

    He hasn't been a great PR.

    Re: Logan

    Here are the STATS

    LOGAN: 14 for 105 yards - 6 fair catches - 7.5 average - 20 Long
    MOORE: 2 for 1 yard - 3 fair catches - 0.5 average 1 Long

    Plus Logan has let a few bounce past him ... so he's the man, except when we need Moore to catch the ball inside the 10

    Moore in there on deep punts is what I was referring to...guess they still don't completely trust Logan.

    I was actually hoping for a little bit more from Logan than we are getting but I won't complain too much because he is lightyears better than what we had last year.

    Re: Logan

    Using Moore to catch punts inside his own 10 yard line instead of Logan is akin to using Moore late in the game instead of Mendenhall. Both Logan and Mendenhall are more explosive options than Moore, but Moore is the safer, surehanded option in those specific situations.

    Don't give up on Logan. He seems close to breaking ever single kick off. I'd seriously consider putting up money that he'll get to the house before we've played 10-12 games this year. I would not be the least bit surprised if he has double figures in points before years regular season's end. I'm hoping it comes at a crucial time when he saves or revives a game for us.

    Re: Logan

    Where doe s Logan rate or compare to the other NFL returners ?

    Does anyone feel he isn't doing a good job ?

    I feel he is good, better than what we have had and on the verge of busting loose for a TD.

    Only if he had Jeff Reed kicking off to him, he would do a lot better.

    Never know, maybe he will have Reed kicking off to him next season.
