Steve Breaston 2.0: Less Punt Returns, More Dreads

Submitted by M-Wolverine on August 5th, 2010 at 11:31 AM

Interesting article on Steve taking over the #2 receiver spot with the Cardinals, and how he's worked his way up from 5th round pick to big time kick returner, to Arizona not being afraid to let Boldin go. Which is going to cause him to return less punts, because he's too valuable to risk...except in special situations. And knowing the dreadlock love on the site, Stevie is sporting some now...though he's not sure he's going to keep them. His teammates disagree-

Though I feel he was underutilized at Michigan (leading to him being drafted so late) Breston has worked hard and is now getting the opportunity to start.  Good luck to him I hope he gets paid what he deserves.

"It looks good on him," Fitzgerald said. "He looks distinguished. We're not going to let him cut it."

Dreadlocks. The official gentleman's mustache of the NFL.

I got the chance to see Steve play in the season opener for the Cardinals in San Francisco in 2008. Even 23 mos ago, you could tell that he was creeping up the depth chart. His route running was good and his cuts were made well. It was a pleasure to see him in person. Always polite while making a play, i was proud as a Michigan fan to see him. I also hope that he is rewarded for all his hard work and effort.

so watching the highlight videos of steve breaston and dee hart... does anyone else think that dee hart could possibly return punts like steve breaston? because, frankly, another breaston returning punts would be... awesome.

By countable do you mean units of measurement? For example "fewer seconds" sounds correct but "fewer time" does not, I would use "less time." Also is there a rule for an increase in value? Where I grew up grammar was lacking, so I am always trying to improve. Thanks.

You nailed the concept in your "fewer seconds" and "less time" example.  For fewer to be the correct word, you have to have countable units of measure. One example where the wrong word is often used is in grocery store express checkout lanes where the signs often read "10 items or less." They should actually say "10 items or fewer."
