INDIANAPOLIS COLTS SPECIAL TEAMS
Pat McAfee (#1) - Punter. Rookie with an average of over 37 yards per punt.
Matt Stover (#3) - Kicker. One of the NFL's all-time kicking leaders. Clutch kicker, but does not have long range.
Chad Simpson (#35) - Kick Returner. Did not do much in the playoffs, but during the season he averaged 23.6 yards and had a 93 yard touchdown.
T.J. Rushing (#20) - Punt Returner. Averaged 5.7 yards on punt returns.
The Colts may use Wide Receiver, Pierre Garcon, to return some punts.
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS SPECIAL TEAMS
Thomas Morstead (#6) - Punter. Rookie who has gained a reputation for being poised. Solid punter and kicker and he did both in the playoffs.
Garrett Hartley (#5) - Kicker. His kick in overtime won the NFC Title. Did not play a lot during the regular season. He was out because he used a banned substance and on the bench when he returned. Has been accurate since coming back in December and playing in the playoffs.
Courtney Roby (#15) - Kick Returner. Strong runner (ran track in college), but injured his knee during the NFC Championship Game.
Reggie Bush (#25) - Punt Returner and starting Running Back. Returned a punt 83 yards for a touchdown in the playoff game against Arizona. This is the third longest return in NFL playoff history.
I have a feeling that one of these groups is going to make Sunday a very special day for their team and fans.
