Being a kick and punt returner may not be the hardest job in the NFL, but it's definitely up there.

You have only a handful of plays a game to make a major impact. If you fail spectacularly, you won't have many chances to redeem yourself. A big play, meanwhile, can earn you millions upon millions of dollars, as everyone from Allen Rossum to Devin Hester has taught us. It's a bit of a nerve-wracking occupation.

The Falcons have had some great ones, so let's vote. The top two selections will be our kick and punt returners, respectively, whether or not they manned both spots when they were actually playing.

Vote, friends. This is the last one.
