Punt/Kick Return Funkiness

Ive noticed on returns, the return man is bolting ahead of his blockers, almost every time its my returner a good 5 yards ahead of my 4 blockers.

The return game is one of the (hopefully) few obvious bugs that still need to be addressed. Generally, the return man will stay behind his blockers, unless his blockers are behind him. The blockers just need a little more adjustment to where they go during a return.

Mine seems to hang back at a snail's pace behind his blockers. However, stats show a 10-11 yard average, so I guess its not terrible, but it sure looks slow.

Mine does alright on punts, but I noticed him going like a sprinter on kicks.
