Full story: Baltimore Sun

The rule of thumb regarding whether to down a kickoff in the end zone or bring it out is that there is no rule of thumb.

Heck, if Figurs just takes a knee every time the Ravens would have better field position.

you don't ever want to handcuff your players and limit their ability to make a play , but in the ravns case when time and time again the same players keep making the wrong decisions you have to put some kind of limitations on them, let's hope some of these guys turn it around soon or it will be one heck of a long season, and I for one feel like it is already turning that way, hope ai am wrong! we will really see in the coming weeks what coach Harbaugh is all about, either the real deal or just another pretender!

Why not put RAY RICE to return kicks and punts...i like to see what he's got instead of just sitting on the bench

Until our guys learn to really block on punt and kickoff returns it doesn't matter who the return man is.This is one area where I felt we would improve greatly. I'm really disappointed in our special teams across the board.I agree with Leroy , lets give Rice the chance to return some kicks and wasn't Zbikowski a return man at Notre Dame?

Zbikowski is a SOLID returner. Although he had great success doin PR for the Irish, but he rarely did KRs. So we should have Rice take care of Kick Returns and Zbikowski as the Punt returner. I bet they will make a good combo. Last but not least, we aint gotta nothing to lose. Let the rookies get involved. We gotta clean up after the season so why not see what the rookies got to offer??

I think Figurs is still nagging that injury he's been suffering. That probably explains why he gets beat everytime. Figurs is out for the game so I assume Leonard is gonna take over which I don't have a problem with since he did alright against Cleveland.
