BJ Samms = Eddie Drummond Jr.

All I can say is I really hope Kevin Robinson gets better quick.

I was flying high after that opening drive last night, but the biggest flash of anger I got was watching BJ Samms do his best Eddie Drummond impersonation.

Chicago punted five times and BJ Samms returned exactly ZERO.  He fair caught once with no Chicago special teams player within 15 yards of him and let another returnable ball roll inside the five yard line without even chipping a Bears player coming in to down it.

He makes no other contributions to the team but returning punts.  He's not a WR, he's not a CB, he's not even doing kickoff returns.  His only purpose for being on this team is to return punts.  If all he's going to do is fake a catch and let the ball bounce behind him instead of catching it and trying to return it, we can put Tank Tyler in there to do that.

Preseason games don't really mean anything.  But they are an opportunity for players to show their coaches they have skills the team needs.  It doesn't matter if you have 3 defenders right in your face when the punt is coming down, you catch it and try to make something out of it.  That's how you prove you have something to contribute.  You aren't showing the coaches anything by not doing anything. 

At this point, if Kevin Robinson comes in and at minimum actually makes an effort to catch the ball and even TRY to return it, he will beat out Samms.
