View Full Version : Is kicker a need for us?

I remember one mock had us taking a kicker in the 3rd.

I remember KB shanking a good number of kicks over the last 2 years, and failing to register a significant number of touchbacks.

And then I saw Mason Crosby from Colorado (the guy with the 60 yard leg) fall to us in the 6th round, and watched as we passed him up.

Whats the deal? Are we giving KB some more time due to his Indy game winning FG or what?

I don't know Gtex...hopefully we will pick someone up around the June 1st cuts or sometime before training camp.....and may the best man win. As it stands right now, I would like to see Kris get cut due to his declining accuracy over the past couple of seasons. I'm too lazy to check it out, but I wonder how many games we've lost in the last few years, by 3 points or less, where we would have won had he made a field goal he missed at some point in the game. Does that make any sense? I'm not asking for specific game winning drive field goals, but games in which we could have won if one was made that was missed during the 4 quarters of play.

IIRC, wasn't there an article or something about how Brown switched his kicking style a year or two ago, then switched back due to performance? I could be wrong, but he began kicking with more accuracy afterwards. I'd still hope for some sort of competition for him in camp.

Am I still allowed to post here?

I think that KB will be fine. I was just happy to see uss grab a Punter in the UDFA pool because Punter is a much larger issue IMO.

Kris Brown's accuracy from 30-39, over the last three years, has bothered me a lot. It bothered me enough to look up a few stats.

FGs from 30-39 over the past three seasons

Kris Brown 18/27 .666 (60/76 career, which is .789)
David Akers 16/20 .800
Rob Bironas 13/14 .929 (only 2 years)
Matt Bryant 15/16 .938 (no attempts in 2004)
Phil Dawson 24/29 .828
Jason Elam 22/23 .957 (115/125 for career at that range)
Jay Feely 30/34 .882

I got tired of going through kickers alphabetically at that point, but I'm pretty sure my point is made.

KB was good for shanking FGs to get the first pick in the later parts of 2005, but he is alright.

I'd rather have him than Cortez or Vandershank.

OK, I followed up on this, once I had a little time. From 30-39 yards, over the past three seasons, Kris Brown is the worst kicker in the AFC. I didn't do NFC, sorry. And he's the worst by a pretty big margin. It's not even close.

BAL - Stover - 26/28 = .929
BUF - Lindell - 26/29 = .897
CIN - Graham - 28/32 = .875
CLE - Dawson - 24/29 = .828
DEN - Elam - 22/23 = .957
HOU - Brown - 18/27 = .667
IND - Vinatieri - 28/30 = .933
JAX - Scobee - 22/26 = .846
KCC - Tynes - 23/27 = .852
MIA - Feely - 30/34 = .882
NEP - Gostkowski - 7/10 = .700 (only one year, see Vinatieri)
NYJ - Nugent - 17/19 = .895 (only two years)
OAK - Janikowski - 21/25 = .840
PIT - Reed - 29/33 = .879
SDC - Kaeding - 22/23 = .957
TEN - Bironas - 13/14 = .929 (only two years)

Really, that is inexcusably bad. I have a hard time believing the Texans can't find a street FA that can't kick better than that.

Both guys kicking the ball should hit the road, imo. Brown is a good cheerleader but is rolling downhill as a kicker and Stanley handicapped our defense more than a couple of times last season. I don't understand why we resigned him.

But he was 21/28 between 40-49 yds.
Maybe, we just need to go for the longer FGs. :doot:

Shaft75 left a neg rep for me that says "try looking up beyond 39 yards". Nice. That was not my argument,so I really don't care how he does beyond 39 yards. Everytime he lines up for something between 30-39, I cringe. The fact that I recognized that trend at some point infers that I also recognize that he's done acceptably well at longer ranges. Therefore, the anomaly caught my eye.

Try actually understanding a point before you leave neg rep.

EDIT to add - Without doing all your homework for you, here is some of the info you requested:

FGs from 40-49 and 50+ yds., combined

Stover - 29/35 = .829
Lindell - 21/28 = .750
Graham - 25/34 = .735
Dawson - 19/28 = .679
Elam - 29/42 = .690
Brown - 23/35 = .657
Vinatieri - 24/32 = .750

So I'm not sure what you're argument is, unless you left neg rep because I confirmed your theory that he just sucks as a kicker.

First, neg rep should be for someone be way out of bounds on something nor because you disagree with someone. That is a bit childish. (he gave me neg reps because I said "unfekking" , but it is only neg 1 so oh well).

I do not think anyone is completely happy with Brown and we would at the very least like to see someone brought in to at least compete for the job.

Glad you did more research. I left you negative rep because you didn't do more of it. It was a weak point without all of the facts.

That's where I stand. I just looked up the stats to put numbers to the trend that I noticed. I actually ended up realizing that he's pretty subpar at anything beyond 30 yards. Stats don't tell the whole story, of course, but in this case, that works against Brown. Elam, Stover, Lindell, and others spend a greater percentage of their time kicking in adverse weather conditions, when KB has the comfy confines of Reliant stadium to deal with. Even on our road games, we face Jacksonville and Indy, neither of whom have adverse weather conditions (well, occasionally Jax, but rare). Even in Tennessee, there might be snow, but you won't face the extreme cold you face in the northeast. I wonder what his percentages would be if they were adjusted for those climates.

We have enough needs that we're going to have to suck it up at certain positions. This year, kicker and punter are two of those positions. We have two guys signed. Let them do it for a year and re-evaluate when it's all said and done. I can't stand the feeling I get in my stomach when KB shanks a FG (usually once a game...sometimes more), but that's what we got.

Stanley? Ugh...I hope the UDFA punter we picked up beats him out and owns.

I would be very surprised if Brown is our Kicker for the entire year next year. He has the 12th largest cap hit on the team, 1.73m (before Okoye signs) and is signed through 2009. If he is cut this year his signing bonus would accelerate on the 2007 books for 1.14m this year. The question is can we find someone to bring in for 600k this year that can do just as good of a job as one of the worst kickers in the AFC over his career? I think so. Having a Kicker make that type of money with lower kicking percentages than his cohorts, in mostly good conditions, is waiver wire material in my opinion.

Sorry, I checked out of the board for the weekend. The loss against the Ravens was the one where Brown hooked one about ten miles to the left, inciting league-wide speculation that the Texans were tanking it for the Reggie Bush selection.

I am not sure where you're pulling the info from; maybe they just have it entered wrong. There's also the possibility that I am associating that colossal miss with the wrong game, but I don't think so. I'm sure there are others here that remember that kick and that game.

For what its worth, I did a cursory review of the "Game Centers" on HoustonTexans.com and I could not find any glaring typos..

Also for what its worth and interesting enough, Morten Anderson's career pct. was 79.3% and Brown's is 76.3%.

It's not the overall percentages that worry me - it's the downward trend of the last few years. Who knows? KB might be able to turn it around, but we have no reason to believe so at this point. Even more pertinently, the team has no reason to rely on that at this point.

He was a perfect five for five on FG attempts (22, 26, 29, 39, and 39) at Baltimore (12/4)...it was the fourth time in his career and second as a Texan that he made five field goals in a game...

had a rough day in Tennessee (12/11), connecting on just one of three FG attempts...had one kick blocked and missed a 31-yarder with no time on the clock that would have sent the game to overtime...had one carry for four yards and a first down on a fake FG attempt...made solo PAT..bounced back to make three of three FG attempts (26, 27, and 41) and all three PATs against Arizona (12/18)...connected on a 37-yarder and 53-yarder before missing two (38, 48) wide right against Jacksonville (12/24)...made one of two FG attempts and connected both PATs against San Francisco (1/1).


You could be talking about the Jacksonville game but the most controversial was the 49'ers it was not the Raven's game.
