Falcons Coordinator Says Eagles Returners Are ‘Slippery,’ Could Make You Miss in a Phone Booth

It’s not often you see other team’s commenting on your special teams but the AJC has a blog post featuring Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong doing just that. The descriptors he uses for the Eagles returners are fantastic.

Q: How do you see the Eagles returners?

A: It’s a good group. A slippery group. Very
slippery. All of them are explosive. They can make you miss in a phone
booth. They are guys that can hit it. They are capable of making big
plays. We have to do a really nice job in coverage in terms of stopping
their returns.

Very slippery. Make you miss in a phone booth. Solid.

He goes on to say this is the best kick/punt return tandem the Falcons will face all season, but then also goes on to compliment Mat McBriar. So I guess take everything he says with a grain of salt.
