He makes poor decisions, no doubt about it.
But the disaster that is our special teams, isn't all on him.
At least a couple of the other 10 players on the field have to at least TRY and block for him.

JMO.

A specialty special teamer can't be the worst returner in the NFL. Get someone to catch the ball and kneel in the endzone and we improve our field position by 8 yards.

He does try to much. He needs to settle.

I've been a fan if holiday and I've defended him, but if they cut him tomorrow I wouldn't shed a tear.

I'm concerned with results... not the effort. Results are remarkably bad! We are five games in and it's hideous.

He could double his kick off return average by simply taking a knee......

How many times has Holliday brought the ball past the 20?

was he always this timid? I thought in preseason he'd run it out. At this point he's not giving me much confidence. I give him to the bye week. If he doesn't get it done, we cut him and look for someone else.

At this point I am waiting for the fumble muffed kick to finish him off.

Re: The Holliday experiment is over.....
 
I can't put all the blame on returns on Holliday. Looks like he's not getting any blocks there. He just needs to kneel it when it's in the end zone. He looks more dangerous on punts. But considering how poor our kickoff coverage team is, I would release Holliday for a guy who can boot the ball out of the end zone on kickoffs. May seem like a waste of a roster space, but two TD returns in 5 games is awful.

I feel like at this point if he hasn't found a way to get into his "happy place" by now he's not going to. The Texans tried but it's not working. He was a preseason all-pro this year but since week one he's been a really poor returner. Bad decisions, questionable ball handling, and to be honest he's not showing us jack-chit in regards to his speed. He's thinking so much that he's slow. I know how fast he can be but if he never makes a decision early enough for it to matter than his speed doesn't matter.

Much as I felt back in the day when we had JJ Moses back there returning (Remember Moses? Lot of fun to watch. Run for 40 yards in circles and across the field, net gain of 5 yards with a penalty because his own blockers lost track of him and ended up blocking someone in the back) I feel like the Texans would be better off with a more conventional returner.

Texans were better in pre season when they had all those guys we cut playing special teams.
