More than questionable how Cruikshank in the return game has been used. We have been more than a little offensively challenged.

The absolute best option we have is to get cruickshank in the open field with the ball. I would have him return kick off from 5 yards deep. However, we have him letting anything more than a yard deep go and calling a fair catch on anything that’s even near the goal line. it’s just such a poor choice.

Special teams were such a strong point for GS previously. Perhaps without a dedicated coach there hasn’t been that attention to detail that he has been famous for. Yes, we brought back a little bit of a punt block, which is great. But kick off returns and kick off coverage, as well as punt returns have been awful.

The most glaring, of course is the kick off return and not you lysing the only real Homerun weapon we Have.

No one blocks for him. He’s just trying to survive the season.

One of the main focal point of the game plan should be the block for him and to accentuate any time he can touch the ball in the open field.
