Unbeaten Holliday wins AFC special teams honors

Trindon Holliday, Zak DeOssie AP

Trindon Holliday won his second AFC special teams player of the week award Wednesday.

One of these days, he’s going to lose a regular season game. We think.

The Broncos return man averaged 30.3 yards per punt return last week, including an 81-yard touchdown during a 41-23 win.

The touchdown was his fifth special teams score in 19 games (including the postseason).

He’s now played in 18 regular season games (six with the Texans in 2011 and 2012, 12 with the Broncos) without being on the wrong side of the final score. Last year’s playoff loss to the Ravens was his only professional defeat.

    He won’t be returning anything Monday.

    The ’72 Dolphins hope he loses soon.

    He might make mistakes with fumbles, but you put up with it cause he’s one of the single most dangerous guys in the league with the ball in his hands.

    I would not cut Holiday. Teams just win wherever he goes. On the punt return, he made everyone else on the field appear to be very slow.

    Holiday is another good example of why we should keep kickoffs in the NFL. A returner like him could easily influence field position with one big return.

    We’ll see how fast he is after a good shot in the knees. :)

    he’s fast but being half as tall as an average NFL player is his biggest advantage. I’m sure he’s impossible to locate until it’s too late.

    Should have been Dustin Colquitt. He was amazing against the cowgirls.

    What does Richard Sherman think about this?

    I can’t stand the broncos but I’ve got to admit…that return was impressive. It was about half a step and he was GONE! That kind of speed is CRAZY!

    I love that lil dude. You can always tell when its gonna be a touchdown with him. If he gets to the 40 with 5 yards of space around him its night night!

    Maybe he could have won it the previous week if he wasn’t benched for Welker who only came in to fumble a punt on the goal line, that was so pathetic and embarrassing. Why do you have Trindon Holliday on your roster if you aren’t going to have him out there on the field?

    Let Welker do what Welker does best and same for Holliday, this is his job!

    his only loss he basically won the game if not for the biggest miracle play in history by flacco

    That they never thought of making present day helmets with throwback colors and logos on them is astonishing to me… Utterly astonishing..,,if that is, in fact, what’s going on, then we are closer to living in an idiocracy than I thought.
