What happened to our return game?


There have been plenty of posts on areas we need to fix but I don't recall anyone touching on this subject. Forgive me if I am mistaken.

Going into the season this was considered to be a strength of the team. In reality it became a glaring weakness. Little did we know the return by Dex to start the season would be the one and only "big" return. His injury may be to blame here for his lack of production. That being said should we concentrate on getting him more involved in the offense and not subject him to the additional hits as a return man?

 This brings us to Arenas who finished the season at #18 with an average of 8.3 yards on punt returns. Now it gets worse, on kickoff returns he finished the season at #32 with an average return of 21.2 yards. What went wrong? With field position being so important this is an area that needs to be addressed. Was it the blocking? Was it the coaching? I honestly don't know where the problem is. Maybe some of you can enlighten me. Let's hear your ideas.
