and taking advantage of the oxygen tank right before they ran him back out there. But, while you see a chance, take it.

It was all about the cleats though. Before those returns, he was not happy with his footing. (If it was 20 years ago I could have told you exactly when we changed them). IIRC, he was wearing the plastic-tipped cleats, and we swapped them with metal-tipped ones while he sat on the bench. (This gave me something to do while the towels dried). I stand by our decision.

I think he had the better lateral juke moves versus Rocket. He has commented that its unforgivable to allow a kicker to tackle a return man.
