    Kick coverage has been noticeably better during the games, especially Andrews and Blue as gunners on the punt team. Andrews has also been very good as the outside speed man on kickoffs, he has either made the tackle or forced the returner back into the coverage.

    Poteat worked as a gunner during preseason, as did Chad Scott - I think Scott would be the better choice, it will be interesting to see what BB does Sunday.

    I'd love to see willie andrews get some opportunities to return punts.

    I suspect he is in the pipeline program for rookie defensive backs (Wilson 2003, Gay 2004, Hobbs 2005) and BB doesn't want him spread too thin now that the injury situation at DB is starting to get interesting. Faulk and Brown may not be threats to break it for a touchdown (though Brown has made some nice efforts in recent years), but they will make good decisions, something BB seems to emphasize for punt returners.
