About as many good photographs of Danny Crossman exist as there are nice words said about him by the Panthers fanbase.
Since taking over the job from Scottie O'Brien in 2005, the performance of the unit has been inconsistent at best.
While the kickers have remained mostly consistent (Kasay is the last original Panther and Baker replaced Sauerbrun in 2005) the coverage teams have been a roller coaster.
It also doesn't help that the worst special teams disasters seem to occur at the most inopportune times.
Panther fans still cringe when they think about Chris Gamble's ludicrous across the field adventure pass to Richard Marshall against Minnesota in 2006.
The "pass" was fumbled and eventually led to the Vikings' go ahead touchdown.
In his defense, he's dealt with incredible diversity, a reality isn't lost on either Coach John Fox or owner Jerry Richardson.
Injuries have consistently depleted his corps of available players, forcing him in some cases to pull people off the street.
Fox also views the returner position as a luxury, and an uninspiring return to the 17 fits nicely into his philosophy as long as the ball doesn't hit the ground.
Last year, Crossman was instrumental in the development of kickoff specialist and fan favorite Rhys Lloyd, who led the league in touchbacks. Mark Jones was also a revelation, offering a semblance of a return game that reminded Panther fans of the glory days of Michael Bates.
This year is sure to be another fun challenge. Barring a surprising cut in Tennessee, Mark Jones won't be available to defend his job. The annual bush beating to find a returner will begin again.
The only thing certain about the Panthers' special teams next year is John Kasay, Jason Baker, and that Crossman will continue to be a lightning rod for controversy and criticism.
