Returning Punts Is Like Baseball

May 26th, 2009

Bucs return specialist Clifton Smith takes a few brief moments with knothead Brian Baldinger of the NFL Network to go over the finer points of returning punts.

Among the things Smith talks about are how fielding a punt is like playing centerfield which doesn’t sound far fetched at all. Smith noted that if you can play the outfield, you can track a football coming at you.

Smith also said it’s best to have the ball come straight at your head. Baldinger shows why, not that he knew any better.
