Dear Coach Zorn, Dan Snyder, Vinny Cerrato, or whomever makes player personnel decisions these days:

Why is Antwaan Randel El still returning punts?

I just watched him muff another one.  I could forgive it if he was good once he had the ball, but he isn't.  He dances around for a minute or two and maybe gains a yard.

Do you all owe him favors?  Is he holding your families hostage? Why is he still out there?

Oh well, I can't figure it out, but at least it gives me another thing to complain about.

Anyways, good job on the win today. I'm sure this late season surge buys Vinny another year with the team.

Yours Truly,

Josh
