    not sure anyone has posted it yet but should we see more of willy andrews on kicks?

    I think he's earned the right to get some kicks atleast. He looks like he might have a better juke than Hobbs.

    of course, only 1 run to judge by.

    I'm pretty sure that Andrews has always been back with Hobbs on Kickoff returns. Don't forget that Hobbs also broke a long return this weekend too. I think basically they're both good options.

    I like Hobbs. One thing worries me though. When he is running full speed and gets hit with the ball tucked under one arm he kind of whips around fast to whatever side the impact was on. I get dreams of him getting that ball ripped out while momentum takes him in a big situation.

    andrews is usally back there as one of the short kick guys and it wokred out sunday. But maybe he gets to be the main returner for a kick or 2.
    Let a back up guy handle some and keep hobbs fresher.

    IIRC, Andrews serves as Hobbs's lead blocker on most of his kick offs. He was the a big reason why Hobbs had the KO ret. TD against the Texans last year.

    Andrews was a really good return man at Baylor, and I've wanted to see him get a shot returning kicks since last season.

    Can you believe this team has four serious options at KR in Hobbs, Welker, Andrews and Maroney (granted, he'll probably never return a kick again)?

    We've had a couple of VERY prescient posters mention something about Andrews as a KO a few days ago! (BEFORE the Miami game)

    BTW, I know sometimes Youtubes can be grainy and all, but I LOVE it!!
