Where's Leon Washington Been?

  • Just curious. Outside of a few decent returns this year, he just doesn't look explosive and gets taken down almost immediately.

  • Had a 45 yard return & almost broke it a couple of times in the last 2 games.

    I admit their coverage was damned good. But he seems to break the first line a lot.

    On to week two. Week one was not a fluke!

  • The new kickoff rules make his contribution to the team almost zero. I hate it.

  • After some very quick stat checking, looks like Leon is 4th in average kickoff return yards, and 14th in punts (ahead of hester!) But things still feel less explosive

  • More so punt returns is where he's MIA to me...Not trying to bag on the guy, just been noticing it a lot lately.

  • He's a year older, too. I've liked him since he was a Jet and I'm grateful for his contributions. I do think this is his last year with the team. The new kick off position (as mentioned above) makes him expendable.

    IF we do the right thing and get a top-tier WR (Woods) in the draft, I would hand return duties to Tate. I've only been enamoured with one WR from ND and that was Tim Brown. Brown returned punts for like 14 years( if I recall correctly). Tate is no Brown but I suspect his role will be reduced next year as a WR, so let's get him started on this as soon as it is clear we are eliminated from this years playoffs.

  • Without his punt return against NE, we aren't in a position to score in the fourth. He was as important in that winning drive as Wilson and Rice.

    I agree with the new rules. There are ZERO kickoff threats in the league anymore. The only threat is with punt returns

  • I wouldn't mind seeing Golden Tate getting a few shots in the punt return game.

  • He's made some questionable decisions on returns this year.

  • Punters aren't exactly kicking line drives to him either.. they're putting a lot of air on their punts resulting in good coverage and minimal damage on returns.
