Who else is worried about the special teams?

I know it's a bit over reacting since it's only been 2 preseason games but our special teams look horrible!

It takes me back to the memories of 2009 where everytime there was a kickoff or punt i would hold my breath because i would somehow expect our special teams to make a mistake and they sure did.

So far this preseason i have seen no positive plays from the special teams except for the one forced fumble. It seems they always seem to blow their coverage and let the return men get big holes everytime. I dont know what our first special team unit looks like but so far we are always giving the other teams room to run while we can't get to the 20 yard line on kickoff returns consistently.

It might be the lack of discipline of the new guys, instead of working together and containing the return man they go for the tackle individually and overpursue. It also doesn't help that we had a punt blocked too.

There's a lot more to worry about like the depth, turnovers and oline pass blocking but i think we will sorely miss last years ST coach. Hopefully we get a glimpse of hope the next couple of games and our special teams could show us they could be trusted.
