I think that we pick and choose when we want to bury it now... When you let them return it, it's pretty fair odds that they will be pinned inside of the 20. There's also the risk of a big return, of course.
Not really, not with our coverage units this year, which IMO aren't up to their usual standards. I don't think the Falcons are letting guys return kicks. I don't think kickers have any where close to that much control kicking off a tee to control whether the ball goes 60 yards (to the 5) or 70 yards (5 yards into endzone). If they take something off the ball, it's probably just as liable to go 50 yards as it would to only go 65. IMO, their level of control is a squib, pooch, onside, or just a regular kickoff, which is I'm going to kick the ball really hard. I of course could be wrong, since I'm not a kicker. Maybe late in a game it would favor purposefully kicking the ball so that a team will be forced to return it, but I think for the most part the risk/reward of wanting guys to return kicks is not in the favor of the kicking team. You're better off just kicking TBs as much as possible every time.
Bosher is one of the better KO guys in the league, and he's improved significantly from last year there.
