I completely agree if we can get our special teams unit going. They have been notoriously bad in recent years. We have Renaud still who is ok on returns. Percy is only going to be doing kickoffs at the moment. If he goes to doing both, score. There's a chance he'll do neither if he becomes too important in the offense for us. Then again, Chilly still has AD drop back for returns when we need something big to happen, so we'll see. Major possibilities are there. I went to camp, but didn't see any returns. Actually, funny thing... Percy caught ZERO balls, played almost completely with the 3rd team, and when he did get out there with the first team... he ran into AD on a play... got yelled at and walked off. Sage was about a 25% passer and 0% when he had to roll out. This was during the 2nd week of camp. I've heard from friends in Mankato (I used to live in that area as well) that there are many guys in the mix for returning kickoffs and punts, so we'll see how that shapes out. Can't wait to see us in preseason action this weekend... I hope the abysmal looking sage and lack of looks to Percy were just a one day thing. One thing is for sure based on my friends reports from camp... the media is hyping Percy. He looks good, but he does half of what the media says. He'll have a few normal plays, and the media will report how he's uncoverable or something else high praising, etc. Quite funny. I've watched him... He didn't stand out much the day I was there. The media is praising the heck out of the Harvin. I took him in every league though... I love my purple colored glasses in the mid-late rounds. At least I got to chat and hang out with Antoine Winfield that day in the VIP tent (mom in law got me in). Great guy, very nice and down to earth.
I have really been on the Percy Bandwagon recently... too much potential. I couldn't agree more. If he gets a lot of KR shots. If he takes that job outright... I gotta side with Kensat. A lot of potential to be a top WR/KR.
Sidenote: The day I was there, AD was cutting like it was a Madden game. Just ridiculous how someone can move so quick and make a body change direction like that. Doesn't seem possible.
