Three if you count our team.

And, Banks is not going anywhere. Returners often go stretches without a TD. He's got to have opportunities. I say give Briscoe more PT.


I'm not concerned with this TDs as much as his consistency.
- He is averaging 6.2 yards per punt return. Only one other PR has a lower average with 15 or more attempts (and it's by .1 yard).
- Has negative receiving yards in November.
- He's 20th in the league on kickoff returns

Briscoe has dropped a ton of balls this year. I will cut him some slack, but not much.


When it comes to returning, you have to wait a bit when looking at averages. He hasn't jumped out to a great start, but if he breaks 1 or 2 long ones, that average jumps quite a bit.

He's no Brian Mitchell. Mitchell would get you 25-27 yards on every KO return. And, 10-15 yards consistently on PRs. But, he was also a different type of specialist. Banks is more of an explosive guy. He'll get one sooner or later. Lets hope sooner.

With KOs from the 35 Brian wouldn't have had as good numbers either.

IMO, Brandons size is really his biggest hurdle. Glancing blows from would-be defenders knock him so far of course that it re routes him. Things that other returners can run through, he has to avoid. In addition, he looks a bit slow prolly due to being banged up.

I'd actually like our converted TE who's name i can't remember get some returns. His size and speed is a better combo than Banks purely speed based attack.

Perfect spot for a late-round rookie DB who has some speed and strength.

What's the current word on Minniefield (spelling?).
