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.

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

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.

Holliday set record for longest punt return for a td in playoff history and also longest kickoff return for a TD in playoff history.(also most return yards in playof game)

Jacoby set nfl record for longest kickoff return (reg season) in nfl history.

Pretty dang incredible brief moments

Meanwhile joes squad seems to be getting close to nfl record for most blockS in the back

Do people not remember the Ravens game? Trindon hasn't lost a game for us yet. Every seems to think Jacoby did. So which is better? Jacoby or Trindon?

If we put Daniel Manning is out there and he gets injured on a meaningless 8 yard return people will be crying that he was out there in the first place
