Didn't they sign Kerley?  Why isn't he fielding punts 

Because he is terrible at it. Yes he catches them.

Raymond screwed up. Next man up. But the goal is this year is finding longer term answers so I don't fault the staff for not having Kerley out there.

The best is how much fail he'd have displayed by putting Kerley out there to fair catch it or return it for 5 yards. 

Gotta get these kids on the field... They couldn't do any worse... 

This is what I was just thinking to myself.  This is the same place furious any time a single veteran steps onto the field, because it doesn't matter how awful the kids are, they should always play this year.  Yet the failures of crappy young backups are suddenly so shocking and unforgivable?  Such a line of thinking certainly is... curious.

It's the kind of play that happens to young and bad teams. Let's see if Bowles can get all these guys into dealing with it. And go back and play good football. I was rooting for our D to hold them to a FG but it didn't work out. McCown is a guy who can deal with it. He looked ok before that play.

"I'm okay with putting Burris out there to take his lumps" or something like that.

Because an inconsistent corner, who has flashed briefly, on the field for multiple snaps a drive, was a mid round pick, is the same as a UDFA who goes on the field maybe 8-10 times in an entire game and muffs a majority of his opportunities.  If Raymond looked like this last week, he should have been benched for someone who could be relied upon.  That would be the right decision.

I'm just messing with you on this one
