I can't wait for this thread to hit 100 pages. Are we bringing him in on a private jet? All sarcasm aside, I would welcome this signing

Default Re: Shane Lechler to visit Texans

I would rather get a amazing kicker. I like the idea of bringing in Shane, but I think it sends a bad message. I think we have a good punter. I would rather have seven points or even three then none at all.

Default Re: Shane Lechler to visit Texans

Hopefully we get him. Maybe kicking indoors for half the year will give him an added boost?

Special teams were killer last year. Moreso with returns than kicks/punts but overall bad.

Hey wait, why does Joe Marciano have a job still?

Actually if you look at the stats. Donnie Jones had a better year than Shane. Inside 20: 31% vs 26%. Net yardage was close, 40.5% vs 39%, in favor of Jones.

Hope he doesn't outkick the coverage. The Texans were SLOW on special teams last year.

The texans currently have no punter under contract. They were going to add some a punter at somepoint in theoff-season. Getting one of the better ones in history is not reflective of anything deeper than filling a need with the best player a tean can.

What??? Ray Guy wasn't available?

Kidding aside, Ray Guy and arguably Lechler are among the two greatest punters in the NFL. That said Donnie Jones did a fine job (and by a fine job, I mean good enough to NOT spend anymore money on that position).

We don't need an over priced old FA punter. We can get one late in the draft that will stay with the team for the next 10-15 yrs. or just keep Jones who was decent last season.

I think Jones is a FA, so you will spend $$$ on that position anyway. Maybe Jones is asking for more money or a longer contract that the Texans are willing to give.

We should launch a Twitter campaign like we did for Bodden. Just to confuse the hell out of the guy.
