The first time out for coach Darrin Simmons and his special teams unit really couldn't have gone much worse than it did last week in the preseason opener against the New York Jets. <br><br> Neither Nick Harris nor Travis Dorsch punted well, averaging 38.1 yards on seven combined punts. Those in front of them didn't block well or cover kicks well, and Harris dropped not one but two snaps on placement attempts by kicker Neil Rackers.
