Thank God this loser's contract runs out at the end of the year. This no talent loser needs to be put to pasture. And they can send Kris Brown to the glue factory with him....they both are wretched and horrible players.

Is anyone else getting tired of this? I mean, it was funny the first 1,000 times, but seriously....

yes, very tired of it...I had punters in high school that could punt farther than the 35-39yds stanley is averaging. It is totally unexcusable for our punter and place kicker to be shanking sooo many kicks.

Just imagine if brown would have made that first field goal we would have only needed a fg to win today instead of HAVING to go the extra yards to get the TD for the win.

While we are at it lets get rid of our butterfinger fb cook too.

I do not see either of them back next year. Stanley is a FA and Brown will only cost us 386k next year if we cut him.

Well to be fair, Kris Brown has only missed 2 FGs the whole season. Stanley is having a terrible year. I don't know if Todd Sauerbrun is still a free agent, but if he is I think the Texans should consider signing him.

Chad has not had a stellar year but we will definitely not be tossing him.

Watch your back on the MB from now on, gtexan..... Chad will find you.

What...Exactly?

I'm gettiing tired of the silly Chad Stanley "He is God" thing. It was funny when PD started doing it, and it was funny for the reasons he was doing it. But it seriously lost all its appeal after 50+ more posters started doing it as a rebuttle against LEGITIMATE concerns at punter. Lets face it, PD is a funny guy, but everyone ripping off his joke has ruined it

I mean, grow up people. A joke is a joke only as long as people are laughing

PD did start the joke, but you are wrong about this.

PD and I are the rightful Adoptees of Chad Stanley therefore if anyone gets to say ANYTHING about him, it is us.

If you have a problem with it just do what we do when trolls get on here. Ignore it.

How about the punter from Baylor, or would that cost a draft pick?

Probably. He looks like at least the 3rd best punter in the draft which might warrant a 6th or 7th rounder.

Daniel Sepulveda
PT | (6'2", 221, 4.59) | BAYLOR

Strengths: Possesses excellent leg strength and gets good distance on punts. Improved hang-time during first three seasons and doesn't out-kick the cover teams as much as did earlier in collegiate career. Runs with good power, has good top-end speed and can execute fakes effectively. Has experience holding on extra points and is somewhat versatile. Played linebacker in high school and is an adequate open field tackler.

Weaknesses: Though hopes to be ready for the 2006 season opener tore right ACL in spring of 2006, underwent reconstructive knee surgery and durability is a substantial concern. 2004 Ray Guy Award Winner appeared to take a step back in 2005 and needs to have a strong 2006 season. Though flashes the ability to pin teams deep, lacks ideal accuracy and kicks end up in the end zone far too much.

Overall: Sepulveda was redshirted in 2002. He played in all 12 contests in 2003 and punted 87 times for 3,750 yards (43.1 average), with a long of 62 yards, and 23 punts inside the 20-yardline. In 2004, Sepulveda won the Ray Guy Award after punting 62 times for 2,850 yards (46 average), with a long of 69 yards, and 26 punts inside the 20-yardline in 11 games. He again played in every game (10) in 2005 and punted 62 times for 2,863 yards (46.2 average), with a long of 78 yards, and 13 punts inside the 20-yardline earning second team All-American honors (Associated Press). Sepulveda has also held for the field goal team. He tore his right ACL while playing pick-up basketball in the spring of 2006 and underwent surgery on April 27th.
Sepulveda has the power and athletic ability to develop into an excellent punter but he is coming off a serious knee injury and he needs to work on his accuracy. He projects as a rookie free agent

IIRC, I have praised God more than you TL13. I even made changes to his Wikipedia page that go unchanged to this day. Good night and may Chadwick be with you.

Kris Brown has definitely got to go. Stanley punts the way he's coached to, which he does well. He's 3rd in the NFL in fair catches and that's the way Marciano wants it. That reduces the chances of a punt returned for a TD. However, as PacMan has done in two consecutive games at LP Field, some guys bust through and score when all 11 guys on the field are unable to get to the PR.

i think that the punts are so shallow that the returner decides to call a fair catch. maybe

btw im ready to get rid of both kris brown and chad stanley

Kris has been a little disappointing, but let's keep things in proper perspective; exactly who are we gonna replace him with? He's not THAT bad.

Chad Stanley...seriously. WTF? Averaging under 40 yards a punt? It's not like we're constantly in opposition territory, forcing the shorter punts to get it inside the 20 either. WHAT IS GOING ON>!>!:yikes:

Yeah, because watching the Texans week after week, the first thing that comes to my mind is...Get another kicker. :rolleyes:

lol: That used to be quite a bit longer, and included stuff about Stanley punting Osama bin Laden onto the Space Needle (IIRC...It might have been one of the other....er....towers...), etc. Someone edited/tried to fix it, but missed a bunch of things....unless that was mexican_texan, and he just took out the really crazy stuff.

I do not know of any college ball punters or place kickers. However I have noticed that the performance of our punter and place kicker has dropped oever the last couple of years. If we don't get rid of them then at least bring someone to challenge them and maybe that will wake them up again. I recall that in the beginning they were pretty darn good.

Actually... He's right. Chad's sucked of late. His sampson-like powers have left him.

11-06-2006, 07:30 AM
Isn't it easier to replace a punter instead of a kicker? You see teams going through kickers left and right trying to find the right one, but you hardly ever see that happen with punters. So is it safe to say that one can easily replace a punter? Hmmmm.....

It's a karma thing. Chad is our WCO style punter. This dinking punts underneath the coverage all day matches our offense. When teams go to the cover2 special teams formation we just don't seem to be able to punt it into the seams. We need a vertical punting game....er, yeah.

JDizzle
11-06-2006, 08:54 AM
I think Kubiak is holding Stanley back. I'm from the old-skool of punting, and I think the Punter needs to call his own .... punts. This conservative punt-calling is killing us.

Stanley and Kris Brown have been horrible for years now. Both should've been replaced but I know that at least Brown's contract precluded that move up until this upcoming offseason. Call me greedy but I expect that my kicker can line up for a 40 yard FG and I can feel reasonably confident that he'll hit it. Kris Brown is a coin flip much outside of 25. For an "accuracy" punter, Stanley's been short on accuracy.

I wouldnt go as far as to call Brown horrible....Better kickers have missed at the same end there in New York.

But I am starting to realize that "the chad" has got to go.... I know that he is pretty good in pinning people inside the 20, but he is absolutley horrid when we need him to crush one and get us from being deep in our own end.

Maybe if they benched him.....oh nevermind, no one to replace him. Competition, He doesn't have any. Either does Kris.

While we are at it lets get rid of our butterfinger fb cook too.

Just wanted to point out that that's the first fumble of Cook's career. I like what he's been doing the last couple weeks. It's another player opponents need to watch.

And yeah - both our kickers suck. I can punt better than Stanley.

% in 20: 20.6 (26th/32)
TB %: 5.9 (28th/32)

Chad has had these numbers since joining the Texans in 2002, and he is slowly losing productivity.

I'm sorry to the "chad is god" group, but you have to let him go. (after this season)
