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?

Getting the best available player you can sends a bad message? That's just asinine thinking.

ST is 1/3 of the game and it's the third that we were the WORST at. Get the best guys you can and move on.

Jones was a below average punter.

I disagree. He was actually rated at the top of the league in 2012 by PFF. Now the top guys are all pretty close. Point in case: put Lechler next to Jones in 2012 and they're numbers are +/- the same.


Code:

Sign whoever is cheapest, imo.

14/32 in punt average, tied for 13(with 4 others) inside 20. Maybe not below average, but average.

I advocate drafting a punter instead of signing either of them.

Whats wrong with Donnie Jones? I thought he did a great job last year.

Hitman Hartman? What happened to that dude? He had a damn cannon, loved his kickoffs.

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.
