Actually, you have no idea how this is going to work out for the Ravens and Jacoby. Plenty of players have had a poor start turn into a great career by moving on to a new team. I think I'll go with the Ravens GM's judgement on this one, over yours and the Texans.

What would really be "all the more awesome" is if Leach, Pollard and Jacoby each played a part in a win on October 21st. I'll be there!

Jacoby did not ever mature.....plain and simple. He had his chance last year when Dre went down....and he did not step it up..

He has issues and still has issues on and off the field.

I was pulling for Jacoby ....I have since the beginning....but even I saw the writing on the wall last season.

You cant wait on a guy forever. I personally thought he was gone before last season myself.

I really think his best years are behind him.

Mrs. Jones

They should've left Jacoby in Baltimore after the playoff game. It would've saved time.

The best front office in the league brings Jones in for a road test. Maybe we kept him around for so long for a reason.

You would think if anyone besides the Texans would know.....it would be the Ravens.

At this point, all I can guess is that Ray Lewis is hungry and requested a baby lamb.

Flash forward to mid-2012, somewhere in Baltimore:

"Ready to sign your deal? Welcome aboard!"

One extra win in the playoffs for 2 years of Jacoby.... Thats some bad front office work...

I am somewhat confused by the Ravens. But I will wait to see how the contract is structured before I blast them.

Jacoby was the worst route runner on the team last season. He was constantly having to adjust his position when he realized he was out of position. Which resulted in an incompletion.

Jacoby has plenty of faults, but I don't know if he was a bad route runner.

Unreliable hands, awkward, occasional bad decisions, didn't attack the ball consistently...Yeah...

Bad route runner? I can't really say that. All I know is that he got open quite a bit. Didn't always catch the ball or get a catchable ball, but he got open.

You guys realize we played the Ravens twice last year right?

Jacoby had his best overall game of the season the first time we played the Ravens. They probably remember how he twisted Ed Reed up and caught that long TD on them.

The route running has been my third biggest knock on him after his hands and his fumbling.

Our offense has a lot of timing throws where the QB has to let the ball go before the receiver gets to his spot. So the QB is just throwing to the spot. Jacoby got open but the problem was that he wasn't always getting to his spot. That's why so many more balls looked like they were underthrown or overthrown to him than to anyone else.

It made the QB look bad. You've got this WR sitting there wide open and the ball falls to his feet or sails over his head.

At least, that's the way it looked to me. Matt was never as inaccurate with any other receiver as he was throwing to Jacoby.

How dare you suggest such a thing, Jones' only act in his career was one playoff punt return fumble.
