Pierre Garcon - Punt Returner?

Recommended Posts

I'm seeing where Blair White is not Ok for this week's game..

Its been suggested before.../Is it time to try Pierre Garcon as a punt returner.....?

Unlike our KO return game..which is a little bit hopeless...

I think we could break some punts ...

...There's a risk but we're deep at receiver

..what do you think...

I think it would be better to try Donald Brown as a punt returner since he likes to operate more in space, just my take on it.

he is now your #1 receiver and you should not try to put him there under the risk unless he is a specialist like DeSean Jackson.

I think Garcon could be a threat as a kick/punt returner but he's basically the #1 receiver at the moment and has a shot at being a true #2 receiver next.

I say no but only because I don't want him getting beat up returning. Definitely not punt returning for the same reason plus he might drop.

Oh great, another put XXX at returner and the return game will go wild. Apparently you did not get the memo in the other 100 threads about it, the blocking is the issue not the returner. It would be absolutley stupid to put your #1 1A wr at the point of being knocked out with 11 people trying to knock his head off. Jeeez, going to be a long season and longer offseason with posts like this. :wall:

At the moment, the front page could use a different topic. Don't read if you don't want to see.

At this point he is not only the #1 receiver but also the #1 weapon on the entire Colts offense. And I do not mind to put Painter in bad field position since he will need to practice dealing with these situations.

Go deep is right, the Prince kid was brought in to take Blairs roster spot and most likely return punts.

We got this Prince guy since White is hurt.

I didnt know Prince was a return guy...

...Hey, Devin Hester does it..and I think its worked out...

..but it does risk injury..

Does it really matter who's back there to make a fair catch? Most teams never have to punt against the Colts this year and when they do it usually ends in a fair catch and an illegal block in the back penalty.

I want to try out Prince Miller first and if he doesn't work out, then we try out Jerraud Powers. Pierre Garcon is a kick returner, it's where he played in 2008, and he did a very good job there. Then he became a starter, and i guess they don't want to risk the injury. So to answer your question, it's better if we play him at KR, not PR. Jerraud Powers is a better choice.

Garcon returned kicks? For how long? I don't remember that. Yeah I would not have him catching punts, no way, kicks maybe.

2008 he was returning kicks, that was before he was a starting wide receiver. He had:

2008 Indianapolis Colts 14 22 475 21.6 39 0 13 0 0 0 TOTAL 50 22 475 21.6 39 0 13 0 0 0

Garcon is not our "1 reciever. If that is true then this team might as well pack it in for the next couple years.

I like Andy's avatar, 1 of Manning's funnier signals.

I noticed Garcon flashing it to Painter last week.

He is this year and he's not bad as a number 1, just needs to keep on catching. The guy is explosive and physical like a Steve Smith(CAR)type.

I am just wondering where you are finding the information on Garcon as our #1. I see him on the depth chart as a one of the starters at WR, but there is also Wayne as the starter in the depth chart too.

I think it's based more on production then place on the depth chart. Wayne hasn't been very productive yet this year, at least relative to Garcon.

Your number one receiver is the guy that the other team tries to take away. I'm pretty sure that it's still Wayne. Painter has a good rapport with Garcon, and his speed has resulted in some big plays, but you have to wonder how much success he would have if teams weren't worried about Reggie.

But whether #1, 2 or 3 - I detest the thought of using Garcon as a returner. Just not a good idea.

Garcon's hands are iffy. He has trouble catching spirals from QBs (though he has shown lots of improvement this year); it's much harder to catch a kicked ball. With that said, I wouldn't mind seeing us try him out at returner and see what he can do. The true problem with the special teams isn't the returner, it's the blocking
