    You know as Ravens fans we been somewhat lucky with our special teams guys. Looking over that list all these guys were good at what they did. I went with Cox probably because he is the most fresh in my memory but you know Katula and Maese were good as well. Punter, all three were very solid in Richardson Zastudill and Koch but went with Koch. Returner,either one of J.Lewis or J.Jones you can’t go wrong, after all they both had BIG returns for TD’s in the Super Bowls but I gave a slight edge to Jacoby. kicker,for now I went with Stover but as Darth said in a couple years I think this will eventually go to Tucker.
