Default Do you really want Jacoby at # 2?

I think he can develop into a fine # 2, but I think that would take away something that he might be one of the best in the league at and that's returning punts.

I think i'd prefer him to have an Antwaan Randle El esque role with us where he returns punts full time and is our slot/trick play guy. I think that might be where we get the most out of him short term.

Default Re: Do you really want Jacoby at # 2?

I don't grasp the connection that says that just because a guy returns punts he must be a slot receiver. I compared him to John Taylor of the 49ers a bit a month or so ago....a tallish return man that plays the WR2 drafted in the 3rd round from a small school....the comparison is holding up so far.

True Vinny, but how many # 2 WRs can still perform at a high level returning punts when they're a full time # 2?

See Reggie Bush

Basically a #2 receiver, and #2 RB, and #1 punt returner

probably all of them...what is so physically exhausting about 2-4 punt returns a game? Steve Smith is the Panthers WR1 and he returns punts.

Before or after playing 40-50 snaps on offense?

I want Jacoby to be our number two at some point, but just not right now...

He's got to prove he can do this in the regular season...If he has an outstanding game 1, I'd move him to the number two...and he'd still return punts...He'd get his rest when he needed it...

He's returned one punt for a touchdown in preseason, probably against 3rd string players. He's good at it, but he's not proven himself to be our Mathis of punt returns. As of right now, I'd value him more at #2, even if it does hurt his punt returns some.

He works as a nice compliment to the AJ and Walters duo. It's our version of Harrison-Wayne-Stokley.

So, that wouldn't exactly make them starters, would it.

OK, so I reverse exaggerated for effect. He's still only done it once.

Well, you have to consider how often will the Texans' Punt Returner return a punt per game. If the Texans defense played well enough to be around the league average then the Punt Returner would get 2.25 returns a game. Last year the Texans only averaged 1.4375 returns per game. They were tied with the Colts for last place. Even the top team for Punt Returns last year, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, only averaged 3.375 returns per game. So, you see a #2WR could return punts full time as well. He just might have to sit out a play or two on a drive following a long return, that's all.

Yeah, I know. I meant I'd rather have JJ be a real focal point of the offense and have Mathis just get a few snaps here and there.
