They list nine, but this only shows regular season stats. We can think of two more in the playoffs.
This doesn't mean that Webb won't be doing any. He says he understands if the coaches keep him away from it, but he still wants to and says there may be times when he is needed to do so.
My only hope is he doesn't find a way to completely f up our season. He is absolutely cringe-worthy to watch.
Sure he can break one now and again but it comes with a price. Buyer beware.
Makes sense as PR, though I'd actually rather see Deonte Thompson on kickoff returns. But I suspect Deonte won't be on the active game day roster every week.
No surprise but I would prefer an alternative.
So history says that Jones will fumble it away 1-2 times this season? We'll see if any actually cost us a game. Knowing Harbs, he won't yank him until that happens.

Resurrecting this thread to give Jacoby Jones some love.
At the same time as I'm surprised he isn't returning kicks as well as punts, I've been VERY impressed so far with his play as the #3 WR, outside of running one wrong route vs. Cincy.
After re-watching the Eagles game, Jones was the only WR who was getting open on the outside and beating the press. Joe didn't look his way all that much, only throwing to him 3 times, but he still put up a better performance that Anquan or Torrey. Without the bullshit OPI, he would have posted 2 TDs vs. Nnamdi Asomugha, no small feat even if Nnamdi isn't what he used to be.
If he continues to get a good number of looks and does good work with those looks, this could really be a pleasant surprise for this offense.
