Wait - everyone said if Pollard was getting the carries instead of Zeke, the Cowboys would be the greatest team of all time?

It’s been 2 plays

Why? Is there any more/less of a chance of them getting hurt on a punt return than a regular offensive play? 

Yeah, there have been many occasions I've watched the Steelers score some huge special teams points using their best players. The most notorious is probably when Santonio Holmes scored on a punt return against the Chargers in the playoffs when the Steelers won their 6the Superbowl. If they're the best at something, they should do it.

100%. Similar to kick returns which is why they changed kickoff rules. Guys are running full speed at you and you're pretty defenseless watching the punt.
