In Kris Brown's last season with the Texans, he had more misses (11), more games with misses (8), more misses in losses (4) and more multi-miss games (3) than Rackers has had in his last four seasons combined.
I don't think anyone would say that Rackers isn't an improvement over Brown, but none-the-less there is a problem in our kicking game that we need to iron out before things get serious. Whether the problem is Weeks, Hartmann, or Rackers himself; we don't want to go into the playoffs feeling uncomfortable about FGs over 25 yards.
