1st play of the game @ CIN.

He ran a lazy route on a sure TD strike....AGAIN. Beautiful throw by Yates and Jones was running the route like he didn't think he'd get the ball.

I've seen enough. Get this guy outta here.

You know you have a hands issue when you are a body catcher and a ball drops down into your numbers and you can't hang on to it. How big of a mistake was it to IR Lestar Jean?

This. Everyone agrees.

Was he IR'd because he wouldn't last on the practice squad or because there was a real injury?

He plays like a rookie with potential. Yet he will never live up to that potential, it just happens randomly.

He plays like a rookie with potential. Yet he will never live up to that potential, it just happens randomly.

He was at his best his first couple years when he was the #3 after AJ and Kevin Walter. He showed plenty of potential back then.

Fast forward to this year and he's supposed to be the #1 and it's obvious that he doesn't want the job. The writing was on the wall after the Raiders game when he got 11 targets and only caught one pass for 9 yards.

I'm not sure what his problem is. I've heard rumors about him spending too much time at the clubs and it seems like every August there's a Chron article about how he's gotten serious about the upcoming season.

Need to take a WR in the first round.

I think we need that and to also bring in some FA's and overhaul the position. Jacoby's a knucklehead, Walter's old, and Mason's really old. I'd like to see a 1st-rounder and a FA pickup like the Cowboys got with Laurent Robinson.

His problem is that he sucks and he doesn't want to be great...he's content. As a receiver he's already fat and happy. A.J. is one of the best in the league and still busts his ass to try to improve...Jacoby is just happy to be on a NFL roster. That's why this guy has ALWAYS been nothing, but potential and never comes close to improving towards reaching that potential.

It's cut bait time with Jacoby Jones. What a complete waste of time, he should've been gone after last season, but for some reason our team thought it was a good idea to pass up other FA WRs and bring this lazy loser back.

That's bull shit, all the way around. Jacoby was way ahead of his defender, that's a TD if Yates throws the ball ahead of him.

He had to slow down, turn around to have a chance.

He should have caught that ball, I'm not saying any difference there..... but lazy route, perfect throw.....

I don't think so.

From what I remember it was injury but not necessarily season ending. A shoulder or something where he wouldn't be able to play until late in the season. Or how about cutting Dickerson loose? We could use better athletes than Mason or B Johnson. Walter is still a good receiver, he's not a probowler or anything but a decent 3rd option. They really need somebody to stand tall across from AJ and it's never been Jones. Hopefully between the draft and maybe a guy like Jean or Tolliver coming up the ranks we'll see less of Jacoby "Potential" Jones.

i've done all i can to defend jacoby as a playmaker who can be huge for us if used as such, but i've got nothing left. lazy routes, bad routes, bad hands, poor timing, and simply isnt getting it done. his biggest contribution to the texans this season is a couple of bombs and flopping for PI calls. i would honestly rather see trindon holliday in for the plays that jacoby is getting.

rickyb
12-11-2011, 04:31 PM
I learned nothing new about Jacoby in this game. He continues to underwhelm. Were I the QB, he is not a reliable option for me. Seems to me a game cannot go by where he: a) makes a pedestrian catch, and then does a shimmy dance or reminds everyone it is a first down, or b) drops something in his bread basket. A lot.

Even on the PI play on the final drive, my first reaction was one of disgust as he was on the ground yelling/begging for the flag. Regardless of whether he was right, he just bugs.

Cut bait at the end of the year.

12-11-2011, 05:10 PM
I have to agree, Jacoby was the one dim spot in what simply an amazing show of will and determination today. How much cap room would we save if we sent him on his way? I get the feeling we'll need some help in that department.

houstonspartan
12-11-2011, 05:12 PM
Since we're basically right at the salary cap, I expect a major salary dump at the end of the season. Hopefully, Jacoby will be at the job of the cut list. Enough already.

In terms of "making mistakes", perhaps you're right. However, Tate didn't give up in today's game and, like the rest of the team showed a great deal of will in helping us win. Jacoby Jones never seemed to have shown up today. "Lazy" describes his play today pretty well.

Schaub is helluva lot closer to being elite than Jacoby Jones is to being good.

That said, he had a couple important plays down the stretch, so good for him.

Yes , it was. Go back and watch the replay .... he had to pull up , it also allowed the defender to interfere with the catch. A little more air under that throw and it's 6. (Pending JJ catches it .... LOL)

Rey
12-11-2011, 06:39 PM
The ball wasn't underthrown.

It may not have been perfectly out in front but jacoby didn't really have to break stride.

It was not a perfect throw, but that was a long pass. It hit jacoby in the hands.

It was a really good ball. Jacoby should have caught it.

An underthrown ball is a ball that a receiver has to stop for or come back for. Not a ball that a receiver doesn't really have to break stride on.

This is what upsets me the most about Kubiak. He may not be able to control his players on the field but he damn sure can determine who is playing or on the team. We would not have Wade if it wasn't forced on him. Just the fact that Jacoby is still on this team and a starter is insane.

But Jacoby needs to go.

Yeah, Jacoby needs to ride the bus home in my opinion. He picked the one game to make the dumbest plays he's made all year. It's one thing to not catch the ball when its thrown to you, but its a complete embarrassment to put his team in the positions he did today with his mistakes. I wouldn't be able to look myself in the mirror if I know I was that bone headed while the rest of my team was fighting their tails off.

Anybody remember when he almost lost the game for us against Tennessee with a muffed punt? He muffed it straight up into the air then got crushed by the Titans gunner but some weird rule stated that he didn't have a fair chance to catch the ball. People seem to forget that horrible play because we lucked out with the penalty flag.

I wish the guy no ill will but he needs to pack his bags and find another job.

Me too. I can't believe we payed that fool and let our Pro Bowl FB go to the team that just knocked us out of the playoffs. That was an exceptionally bad decision.

Well i will not go that far, sure we shouldn't have paid him, but I am ok with not signing Leach still, he did not beat us today, hell we shut the run game DOWN, and Arian is great without him, but we could have used the money on a wideout somehow....a different one

Jacoby Jones

1st punt:
Turnover inside our red zone near the goal line

2nd punt:
Muffed

3rd punt:
Fumbles, but fortunately, out of bounds

4th punt:
Loses 5 yards


That brings me to the next question............In the last minutes of the game, when the game was on the line, why was HE still put back there to return this last critical punt? In his career, Manning has returned punts as well as kicks..........and don't tell me, under this critical circumstance, they were worried that they would wear Manning out.:kubepalm:

If this were an uncommon occurrence, I'd agree with you. I've been banging the "Fire Jacoby Jones" drum for a long time, though. He sucks as a WR and he isn't even a good punt returner. Take a look at his punt return stats from this year - plenty of tries, bad average. When you pair up poor performance with game changing mistakes .... well, the mob is justified.

Jacoby's muffed punt isn't the only reason he should be sent packing...and it's not even the BEST reason that he should be sent packing. The guy makes TERRIBLE DECISIONS as a return man. His first step on PR is almost always a side move...which then leads to a neg yardage move. He fielded the ball on the 26 yd line today and got tackled on the 20...and that was just ONE PLAY. He sucks, plain and simple. And one or two occasional "big plays" isn't even close to a good enough reason to keep him around.

Sorry if I'm piling on to Mr. Jacoby "SKILLET HANDS" Jones...but it is what it is. So, in short...

Ian Howfield.

Jacoby almost entered Ian Howfield territory, except for one guy making a flub at the beginning of the game and one guy making a flub at the end of the game. Otherwise, and unfortunately so, the two guys are sharing in Houston Pro Football legacy/lore that is what it is.

It's a strange feeling to think that this team could overcome so much adversity and play above their heads for practically the whole season, how we could have legitimate chances to get to a SB, and Jacoby Jones committed such a heinous error considering where he was, who was facing him, and how little chance he would have to make any sort of positive yards out of it HAD HE HELD ONTO IT.

He's been flirting with that little last-second pickup of the ball the past few games. It bit him, and us, in the ass today. Despite Yates interceptions, we could have won this game with better special teams play. Period.

And I think this is why there's a thread about Special Teams and Joe Marciano. But Kubiak is loyal, and he won't shake it up unless told to by Bob via Rick Smith.

This. I would be mad if he had a bad game. It isn't just this game. This season he is to the team what KJ was last year, except this year the goat label mattered a lot more.

True that the loss is not 100% on him. But he was conspicuously consistent as the face of the loss for 4 quarters and usually those moments were him standing alone.

Furthermore, fair or not, he needs to go because Texans fans will never forget what happened. Some will hate him. Personally I just don't want to have to cover my eyes every time we're about to receive a punt and at this point that is pretty much what it's come to.

I understand that the numbers add up (JJ's mistake cost us 7, we lost by 7) but I don't think for a minute that his mistake cost us the game. I think it was one in a long list of reasons why he shouldn't be here anymore. It's more akin to the straw that broke the camels back.

The guy has been screwing up regularly for years and making a play every now and then to keep from getting run off. Nobody would be piling on if the Texans had gotten rid of him when they needed to.

The end result is that this year he made three more starts than last season and managed to catch 20 fewer passes. When AJ went down he was exactly as useless as I expected him to be. Now, in what was clearly the biggest game of his career and in the Texans decade of existence he not only doesn't catch a single pass proving yet again that calling him a "wide receiver" is like some sort of colossal joke but he can't even reliably handle punt return duties. That was supposed to be the saving grace of keeping this guy on the roster. His "dangerous return game" can't be discounted right?

Right.

I don't hate the guy. I just hate his game. I think he is a fool because he does things like injure himself trying to show off and that stupid little "I'm so bad, look at me" walk he like to do on the rare occasions that he does something good.

Having him instead of a real WR to compliment AJ cost us dearly this season.

But I don't hate Jacoby. Jacoby didn't give himself way too much money or keep penciling himself into a roster spot that he wasn't worthy of. Just like David Carr didn't pick himself 1st overall (and I don't hate him for that) Jacoby didn't put himself in this position deep in over his head.

The Texans did that. Today the Texans paid for that. I say "The Texans" because I don't know if it's a Gary thing, a Rick thing, or what. I just know someone there keeps seeing something in Jacoby Jones that doesn't exist.

i'm not going to go as overboard to be hateful, but i agree with the title ... and in that regard i was wrong. i missed with slaton as a homerun hitter, and now again with jacoby. funny enough that i typically hate that type of all or nothing player, but i supported and defended the resigning of jacoby. now that the season is over ... i am comfortable calling him a waste of money.

i thought that he would grow by getting into his second contract. i thought he would age during the lockout. kubiak set the tone and made him an example on a few occasions. jones has had time to figure it out and the authority figures in place to hammer it home. he has his momma in the stands (and likely here too), but he just cant get his head on straight. lazy, undisciplined, unfocused ... it's just not going to happen.

i was wrong. we need to replace one player more than any other next season, and it's jacoby at both receiver and returner.

Jacoby suffers from an addiction to alcohol, and is also known to smoke weed...I suspected he was on something today, because not only was his coordination off, but also his judgment--or lack there of...Partied too hard or maybe he was feeling a lot of pressure and he tried to take that "edge" off?

I don't know, but I suspect that his substance abuse issues are what's keeping him from being a decent and consistent contributor. I too think it's time we go our separate ways.

Is this true? If so then he gets even less sympathy from me. I can tell he isn't bright but if you're that dumb and irresponsible that you'd risk blowing a golden opportunity to make a great living playing a sport then I really want him gone.

The day we signed Jacoby, I wanted to go run through traffic. I just couldn't believe we still wanted to continue this experiment. He makes enough plays through the year that he'll sometimes make you think he's getting it, but at the end of the day a knucklehead will be a knucklehead. He is what he is. Let's end this and let Maehl and Lestar Jean take over. I'm pretty sure they'll bring more to the table.

I'm also all for bringing Walter back, but he needs to take a big time pay cut. His salary is ridiculous for the production he's given us the past couple of years. I like him, but just not for the money he's getting.

Jacoby Jones has got to go he did nothing but screw up the entire game this fool was dropping punts galore and he really all but gave away all momentum in the entire first half and he did nothing in the passing game. Kevin Walters is stealing money too he dropped one pass in the chest that killed a drive in the first half, these two guys need to be dropped and it's time for some new wide outs to go with andre it's just time to move on period no excuses.

eh... Jacoby has had some good games as a return man. His production matches that of the $5M guy.... I think it's a wash.

If the guy we get in the offseason doesn't have the speed to stretch the field, Jacoby stays... he may be #4 on the depth chart & Walter 3rd.

So far he has been taken into police custody and processed, and eventually charged with driving while intoxicated. He then had his bail set at five hundred dollars, which was later paid by the player completely. He was then released after the bail was paid that day and it has been reported that this was his only driving under the influence offense to date. There has been no comment up to this point from Jones or his team about this weekend incident of driving under the influence or what will happen to his participation with his football team.


http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/view/56917

Hardly a recurring trend though, so don't make him out to be the posterboy for drunk driving.

I really don't care about the above incident, and it has no basis what so ever for me not wanting JJ in a Texans uniform next season. I hope he gets his career restarted with another team, as I do with all players that leave our organization.

Don't be so hard on yourself.... we kept throwing our talent at the defensive side of the ball trying to get that thing fixed. Now that we have a defensive guru to match our offensive guru, we should be able to find a better receiver.

The defense is young enough for us to go heavy on the offense this off-season.... all will be right with the world.

Kevin Walters drop a 3rd down pass that halted a drive in the 1st half that hit him dead in the chest and he dropped the pass and I just lost it. Jacoby Jones there is no explanation for this scrub I say bring in a good young F/A like Dwayne Bowe (KC), Harry Douglass (ATL) or Desean Jackson and still draft a Wideout in round 1 or 2 and let's move away from these crappy no catching wr's who are stealing money.

you're right, i just hate supporting the underdog only to see what should be a veteran lay another rookie egg (made worse by a contract that could've gone to leach or funneled into this coming season). indeed we've given our defense every asset possible, as we've both made perfectly clear waiting on a coach to take advantage of it, but i was really hoping that jones would be the bright spot on offense this season. that's clearly not the case and it's becoming painfully obvious that we need to draft jacoby's replacement and AJ's successor.

i only hope now that jacoby's contract isnt prohibitive and we can save a few bucks by cutting him to free up cap space for mario/foster/myers/draft.

That's because you believe everything else would have happened the way it did minus that one infraction.

Truth is, with a 14-3 lead, the old men Ravens probably took a nap, allowing us to score 10 points... Once we got it that close, the Ravens woke up & put the kabosh on our offense.

The score probably would have been 10-3 Ravens if it weren't for that miff......

truth is, we don't know. There's no way to tell. What we do know, is that the score was 17-13 to start the 3rd qtr.

Who would you rather have Vonta Leach or Lawrence Vickers? One's going to the Pro Bowl (again) and the other was picked up off the street as insurance.

The price difference is significant but it's not like spending that money on JJ in any way solved the explosive wide out problem you mentioned. I mean, if we spent that money on someone who could actually do that job then sure, I see the point in it. We didn't though.

3 years@10.5 million for JJ + The 2 years@3 million we had to pay Vickers to come in and do what Leach used to do (no extra charge for the stone hands. Those come with the package)

vs

3 years @ 11 million just to keep Leach.

i was in favor of giving jones the contract. he'd shown a progression in his maturity and gave the impression that he'd turned the corner. for me, and i'm assuming those in charge, this wasnt a "potential" contract - it was given to a kid who appeared to have already taken on a man's role on the field.

I'll tell you what doesn't get a pass from me, is the Offensive playcalling yesterday. You've got a rookie QB and all your going to ask him to do is hurl the long bomb into coverage all through the 2nd half? Get this guy some medium routes to pick and choose between.

All second half the announcers are raving about how he hadn't taken any sacks also. Would have much prefered a few sacks than the INT's we gave up, but there you go, we were forced to play the rookie before time, and I think Kubiak bottled it when it came down to it having trusted him throughout.

Yates will be a great backup project QB, I'd cut Leinart and Delhomme (due to money) and try and keep hold of Garcia for some great experience at 3rd string.

This has nothing to do with Yates' abilities, but if Kubiak was planning on putting him in that situation, then Delhomme would have been the better option to start in the playoffs imho, Jake throws a far more accurate playoff INT than Yates will ever do, and wouldn't have 7 months wondering if that will be his only big chance before getting back on the field.

I hate this argument, its weak and short sighted. Yates threw the ball not Gary. Every play includes a guy deep and a guy shallow and some in between.....it was YATES who felt the need to force the ball NOT Gary, but that is what happens when a young guy is under pressure, Sage use to do the same thing and he was a vet, force the ball when the pressure is on....this was the first we saw Yates do this, but the pressure was crazy yesterday....nothing you can do about it, it improves over time

Goats of the Week

Houston PR/WR Jacoby Jones. What's the one thing the Texans, playing with a third-string quarterback and playing at a team that was perfect at home this year, couldn't give Baltimore? A gift. And after the Texans held the Ravens to a three-and-out on Baltimore's first possession of the game, Houston was due to get the ball back, up 3-0 with momentum. Jones, though, tried to grab a bouncing punt while under heavy pressure from special-teams gunner Cary Williams. The ball bounced off Jones and Baltimore recovered at the Houston 2. The massive gaffe led to the Ravens' first touchdown, and Houston never led after that. I understand Jones recovered a Foster fumble later in the game, but that doesn't make up for the seven points he gave up earlier.

Man this is wrong for fans to act like the damn lynch mob after a football game but Jacoby Jones has to be cut or traded out of here but the sad thing is we might have to keep him because of the salary cap hit and if they do people will be upset.

Salary cap or no salary cap, I'm pretty sure Janobody Jones has played his last game here.

Not necessarily, he earns $5mill average over the next 2 years and has $2.4million left in guaranteed overall, so that'd save us $3.8 mill a year overall. Not terrible.

I've heard rumors of death threats towards Jacoby... NOT COOL!!

That said, Jacoby sucks and must go!This is just the kind of crap I am talking about. Jones did not pay himself. Guess who did? Maybe Jones is not football smart or he just is not good enough, Why is he still here? Football is not going anywhere and the Texans day will come. I have moved on already.

Jacoby Jones having Texans fans show up at his house really puts the rest of the sane fans in a negative light. That sucks and I hope he is okay. However his play yesterday was really costly to the Texans and I hope he is not returning punts if he is on the roster for some reason.

The amount of hate people show athletes is disturbing.

Are you actually going to tell a person that you hate them and they should die simply because they did not entertain you?

And in the end, that's all they are-- entertainers. Get over yourselves.

Where are you getting these numbers? His entire contract was 3 years $10.5 mil with $3 mil in the form of the first year's salary guaranteed. He can be cut with no cap hit (the guaranteed money has been spent) but he wouldn't earn close to $5 mil next year even if he stayed.
