Default I don't want Westbrook or Sheppard returning punts. Period.

It's the ultimate irony, but i really want Mahe to heal up quickly. These two guys are far too valuable to be returning punts in Game 1 against the Texans.

But, I keep hearing Lito is over-rated and that Hood should start over him...so would it be that big of a loss?...

I have no problem with them doing it one game, but yes it should not be a long term solution...

Lito probably IS overrated, but we've only got 3 legit corners right now, and we can't afford to ost ANY of them.

I don't mind Lito returning punts on an interim basis. My question is - wasn't Lito making it known in pre-season that he still wasn't quite 100%? If so - why would he and/or Reid thrust him out there as PR?

I disagree with Lito being overrated. However I do think Brown is.

I'm not here to bash on either one of them. THey're our guys, they're what we've got. They are the BEST we've got. So I don't want Brown, Hood OR Lito taking unnecessary risks.

Sheldon is rated perfectly. Lito is overrated this year because he's hurt and w/o his speed he's not a great corner.

But putting him and/or Westbrook at risk is crazy.
