How many returns have you guys returned for a TD. I know for me I haven’t returned a return in 2 years.

    I've had a dozen or so in regular H2H games this year. The best way I've found to return one is to head upfield towards the sideline (diagonal line) and make a cut to the opposite direction when you're about 20 yards away from the other team. I keep my eyes up field as the ball is hitting the bread basket so I can get a good idea where my team is creating room. Run to the opposite side with less room and then cut towards the one that has it.

    I always return middle.

    Much harder than in years past though. I remember taking kicks back on a regular basis when Hester was actively in the NFL, then again he's a Hall of Famer when it comes to returning kickoffs.

    That's what seems to work before for me over a long period of time. It doesn't mean you'll immediately start taking more kick offs to the house per that advice. I could also be bad at taking back kickoffs. :p

    Either way, they do seem a lot tougher than years past. Then again, we don't see that many like we used to.
