Texans have not allowed a TD to an opposing No. 1 WR in their last 8 games. No. 1 WRs averaging under 3 catches, 42 yards vs Houston. Per Evan Silva NBC Sports, Profootballtalk.com, Rotoworld

For a second there I was thinking:
Jacoby is doing everything he can to become a Pro Bowler
Watt is really mad and is taking it out on WRs
Then I realized this thread is about the awesomeness that is JJo.

Jo is the man. Plain and simple the best FA aquisition we've ever had and probably the best FA of this past off-season.

Gonna be wonderful to see Dunta flailing around out there and see Joseph on our squad.

In all fairness, have we faced any great (or even good) #1 receivers? I can only think of Mike Wallace off the top of my head.

You could say Reggie Wayne, but with the Old Drunkard throwing it... yeah.

JJ = Watt

JJo = Joseph

Jacoby Jones has been demoted to '12'.

We faced Brandon Marshall and he scored a TD with Allen covering him and made a circus catch over JJo that was in near perfect coverage.

Joseph has gotten some mention here and there, but IMO is still very underrated amongst Texans fans. He doesn't take his helmet off and head butt people and he doesn't rack up sacks, but he's the best player on defense IMO. He does his job and therefore, you don't hear his name called too often.

This is how it should be for elite corners.

The goal is to be so good they won't even throw it in their direction.

Say Watt

Yeah, I have been pleasantly surprised by JoJo. I knew he was good from watching him when he was with the Bengals, but this season he has looked elite. I'm talking top 5 CB elite. This defense has been fun to watch. In one offseason, we have become a team with a top 5 CB, a top 5 ILB (Cushing), a top 10-15 OLB (Barwin), a top 15-20 safety (Quinn), and a defense that just plays exceptionally well as a unit. They suffer injuries (Manning and Mario) and just keep on playing good football.

By far, this has been the most fun season ever as a Texans fan.

That was how I read the title too. Jones was literally going around and knocking off the competition. :)

I thought that he meant Watt was smashing the WR's on his way to the QB.

How long I've had the same avatar says more about 'im than I actually have.

Anquan Boldin isn't chopped liver.

And he had a great game against us.

Joseph's biggest test will come against Atlanta where he has to worry about either White or Jones with a more than competent quarterback throwing them the ball.

1. Chris Gamble: Snaps-614/ 17 of 40 rec allowed 210 yds 2td 3 ints

Allowed two receptions for 31 yards on eight attempts. Houston, we have a freaking cornerback.
