Re: Shane Lechler - Signed Texans
One point I don't remember anyone bringing up when comparing stats for Jones against Lechler is one "small" factor.........the Oakland open-air stadium. For any of you who have never been there for a football game, the stadium is near the water..........the wind is cold, strong and brutal most of football season........and the wind is usually directed in cross-direction and/or swirling........a punter's nightmare. During the winter, forget feeling your feet, hands or face. Since Lechler has played all of his home games every year outdoors, it is safe to say that he has overall played the majority of his games in his 13 year career gathering his extraordinary stats in unprotected environments.
