Exactly.

People fall in love with players and follow them to their new team like a lovestruck teenager who has a poster of Bieber on their bedroom wall.

"OMG! Look what he's doing with another team!"

So what.

I mean, do we do this on every single player who leaves the Texans? Or is it just fun to find the ones who go on to actually DO something and build it up as a thing of "Man, look what we had and let get away from us!"???

The Broncos fans probably aren't on their message board talking about Chris Myers right now. Are they?

It's so silly. For every Jacoby Jones who goes on to have a good season (or more) there are a dozen David Carrs who don't. Our batting average is pretty good, in terms of who we let go and what they do for their new teams. Leach and Ryans are probably the two standout players out of a pile of players we've let go. Jacoby MIGHT turn out to be in the Leach/Ryans group, but it's one season right now.

When the Ravens get here in the playoffs...Every Texas who was part of the LOSS last year should remember his SEASONS of inept play. They should remember EVERY play he ever screwed up. Every ball he ever dropped and the fact that his bone headed play COST THEM a trip to the AFC Championship and light him up like a Christmas tree. They should show him a molecule of mercy.

The same people hatin' on Jacoby, spent the same amount of passion
being in love with David Anderson. Some were even comparing his skillset
with Wes Welker.

Jacoby's still in the league. Your boy David Anderson is on his couch watching
Conan O'brien. Get over it.

The same people cryin that we let Jacoby go were the same people cryin that we extended his contract .... or that we hadnt cut him before the fumble in the Baltimore game.

Jacoby has world class speed .... but his decision making was suspect here in Houston.

Im happy for the guy tho , seems the change of scenery did him a world of good.

always a race thing with you


i defended jacoby as long as anyone here. i wanted him to do well because regardless of realization, the potential was always there. he failed to realize it because IMO there was a sense of entitlement. mental errors and flaws in his game kept him from being his best. now that he's had a wake up call "wait, i can be cut?!?!", he's shown that small school mentality and aggression that we drafted him for. still one of the most immature players in the league, and shows signs of being a bit of a head case, but it's obvious that he's taking football MUCH MUCH MUCH more seriously now than he did as a texan. forget the runs, forget everything else - watch the way he fields the ball ... there's a focus that didnt exist here, a football mentality that he took for granted.

that immaturity however is why i cant fault those expecting the worst. he's going to settle in (again), believe his hype (again), and blunder a great opportunity (again). he's shown me he's a football player again, but has yet to prove an ounce of accountability.

The only thing I don't like about this explanation & explanations like this, is that Jacoby hasn't had any off-field "issues" for at least a year. I want to say 2 years.

And, Arian talked about Jacoby like a brother, and mentioned on several occasions how he, Jacoby, & Casey would work out after practice when everyone was gone.

So I think he got over the immaturity thing & left Houston as a true professional.

That's a flat out lie.

I've bashed David Anderson as hard as I did Jacoby. In fact, in the camp and preseason leading up to his last year here (last season) I even went so far as to say that Jacoby's production AND his upside was significantly larger than David Anderson.

I know plenty of people, hell if not the majority of us, who disliked David Anderson being a constant presence on this team.

Speechless. Good for Jacoby. Status quo for Houston sports teams.

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is looking good....

While I'm happy for Jacoby, Leach, and Pollard, it just makes me sick to see all the players we lose, cut, or trade go to other teams and win championships or become big play makers like Holiday. I know a lot of it is cap related, especially last year, but I'm getting concerned we will continue to bleed our talent out and never win a championship. It seems like a team has to hit in the draft every year with 3 or 4 players just to keep their team in the playoffs regularly. I keep wondering what would have happened if we could've kept Winston, Brisiel, and Jacoby, and Cushing was healthy all season. I still think we are close but they will have to have another great draft to help us get to the top.

Also, I think Jacoby should have been at least co-MVP with Flacco. They wouldn't have won without him. Way to go Jacoby! You got your ring! Just wish it would have been with the Texans.

I don't quite understand this post. You're saying he made the right decision by getting rid of Pollard, Leach & Jones? Then what's your gripe?

And who exactly are the wrong players he paid? Manning, Joseph, Smith? Bottom-line, the Texans can't pay every player that plays well for the team.

All those players were cut or let go. Pollard & Leach we didn't want to pay them so we let their contracts expire. Jacoby & Trindon, straight up cut...

I understand where you're coming from, but it doesn't bother me that these guys go on to find success, especially guys like Trindon & Jacoby who wouldn't be in the league if not for the Texans taking a chance on little known talented players.

What upsets me, is that we get nothing for them. Trindon & Jacoby were draft picks. Pollard we only had for one year & he was a standout in KC already. Someone would have picked him up anyway, so it would have been difficult to get anything in return for him.

Leach, was unknown & under appreciated before he came here though. They knew they had a commodity there & they knew they weren't going to pay him. They pay Jacoby, KDub, & Winston & had to let Leach go.

The Texans FO needs someone who knows how to work the cap. This stuff is ridiculous. I totally forgot that the reason they let Leech go was to sign Jones. The Ravens know how to do it.

We are right up against the cap- no way this team even resembles teteam that just won the Super Bowl. So many Free Agents to be re-signed....

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is looking good....

This was never about jacoby. Or Joe Marciano. This is about kubiak. He is too uptight as a coach. You can tell just by looking at his face on the sidelines. He gets that upset stomach face. He doesn't look at field goals. He's not confident. You can tell with how schaub plays. Kubiak is so afraid of mistakes that much of the team doesn't play loosely. They get so knotted up when big games come around.

Trindon and jacoby have had the same natural ability they have now since they came into the league. But before kubiak puts guys like that on the field he has to make sure they know how much he hates mistakes. So what you have is a bunch of guys that are thinking too much and not letting their natural ability shine. You have Kevin Walter starting for multiple years and Ben Tate not getting carries.
