Stefan Logan anyone? 'Yes please!' says the Aussie

According to Fanhouse's article about the return of Antwaan Randle El to Pittsburgh they believe that PR and KR extraordinaire Stefan Logan may be a casualty in the coming weeks.

In logan I see everything the Panthers need, and then some.

Breakdown after the jump

Essentially Fanhouse's argument is that between Mewelde Moore, Mike Wallace, Randle El and Joe Burnett the Steelers have numerous players who can return punts if needed, calling having a specialized punt and kick returner 'a luxury'.

I think most Carolina Panthers' fans would agree: That's a luxury we'd love to treat ourselves too.

Techincally a RB Logan could be a minor player for the 2010 run game, figuring into very specialized situations, but it's his incindiary ability on returns that make him immensely valuable to the Panthers. Here are his 2009 stats:

Kick Return
Year Team G Ret Yds Avg Lng TD 20+ 40+ FC FUM
2009 Pittsburgh Steelers 16 55 1,466 26.7 83 0 43 4 0 1
TOTAL 16 55 1,466 26.7 83 0 43 4 0 1

Punt Return
Year Team G Ret RetY Avg Lng TD 20+ 40+ FC FUM
2009 Pittsburgh Steelers 16 30 280 9.3 25 0 3 0 15 2
TOTAL 16 30 280 9.3 25 0 3 0 15 2

Let's compare those numbers with the Carolina Panthers' top performers of 2009:

Kick Return Statistics
Player Returns Yds Yds/Ret Long TD
Mike Goodson 17 352 20.7 33 0
Tyrell Sutton 14 302 21.6 32 0
Kenny Moore 10 219 21.9 55 0

Punt Return Statistics
Player Returns FC Yds/Ret Long TD
Captain Munnerlyn 31 10 9.0 37 0

 

Does anyone else thing this match makes as much sense as I do?
