Underwood Will Return Kicks Sunday

December 13th, 2012

From Preston Parker in preseason, to Michael Smith on opening day, to Arrelious Benn (remember him?) to LeQuan Lewis, and Tiquan Underwood last week, it’s been a long and subpar season of returning kicks for the Bucs.

Today, Greg Schiano said Underwood will be the guy on Sunday after not much to judge against the Eagles. Underwood’s best effort was a return to the Eagles’ 23 yard line from deep in the end zone.

This isn’t very exciting news, but it does all but ensure that Smith will again captain the inactive list.

    Let me be the first to say, “Boo.”

    The only thing I can think of that might make any sort of remote sense is that maybe, just maybe, the Bucs are treating Smith’s rookie year kind of like a ‘red shirt’ year? Giving him the opportunity to fully understand how the offense works in the NFL?

    The only thing i DO know is that the one thing you can’t teach in the NFL is speed, and Smith has it.

    Underwood hasn’t looked too interested in playing receiver lately.

    Why is anyone besides Roscoe Parish touching the ball on kick and punt returns?

    So Schiano wants to get rid of kickoffs… Hmm maybe becauses he doesn’t have a kickoff return

    Michael Smith only returned 5 kicks is his entire college career. If he was so good at it, I would think Utah State would have taken advantage of such a dangerous weapon.
