    Something Not Talked about from the GB Game

    The Steelers had two kick returns of 40+yds (Brown- 41 yd punt return and Sanders- 46 yd kick return) in the game. Both were tackled by the kicker. So why are these defenseless players allowed to make TD saving tackles if they are not allowed to be blocked 'too hard'.

    I would go to the other side of the coin. Our kick return coverage has been awful these past few weeks. I cannot find a site that posts this stat to back it up, but it seems the other team is returning our kickoffs very well recently.

    OK found it on ESPN, surprising to see our opponents only returning kicks 22 yds on average. Must be my lasting impression from the Balt. and Green Bay games, but I would have thought it to be higher.
