Default Kris Brown

Is it just me, or is Kris Brown not himself this season? He's missed a few field goals, he has come close on a couple of PAT's, and in particular, his kickoffs have been really short - often between the 10 and 15, giving the opponents several extra field position yards. Is it time to start looking for a new kicker?

I dont think Brown ever was that powerful on kickoffs. One of his missed field goals was blocked. But ya it would be nice to have somebody that could make a 60 yarder.

His problem right now can be corrected. Kicking is like throwing in that you get hot/cold at times. He just needs to work on elevating those kicks.

It wasn't too long ago he nailed a 57 yarder to beat the Dolphins, year before last I believe. Don't know what the result would be this season though.

Not that fantasy football matters but I dropped him because of the concerns voiced. Lost that consistency.

IMO, both kicker and punter need to have a serious review this off season. Both seem to be fading. They have done great things here, but all good things come to an end.

2 of his 3 misses were blocked. I'm not too concerned about him, he missed an easy one but we've been scoring tds when we're in range (or turning the ball over) instead of kicking FGs this season. Since last season though we dont seem to be attempting FGs past the 35 yard line. We either punt or go for it on 4th down where we used to let Brown knock it through.

His kickoffs do concern me though.

Yeap. Thought the same thing today. Hopefully Kris gets things turned around, he seems like a great person.

Good grief, the kicker can't keep the Dline from blasting through our Oline and blocking his kick too. He's fine.

No, but he could get his kicks higher or off quicker. Right now, if the game came down to a 50-yard field goal try, how much confidence would you have in KB? As much as I like the guy, I can't say I'd give more than 30-40% confidence.

Are you serious!?

KB has probally been the most consistent player in Texans history!

He has only missed one field goal that was not blocked in 6 games, it's all good.

Wow. I really don't believe it. Whats wrong, Schaub not throwing interceptions at a fast enough rate, and people need someone else to start piling the pressure on?

I'll set aside the fact that Brown has been a heck of a consistent and loyal member of the team since the inception.

Last year the kid was freaking good. He hit 87.9% of field goals, was 2-3 on field goals over 50 yards, and was one of the most reliable things on our team.

This year he is 5 of 7 field goals, hasn't missed a PAT (as for the last few years), one of his 'misses' was a block. He hasn't been asked to kick anything over 40 yards (so why the 60 yard field goal kicker...I'm sure the 3 yards from his rough 57 yard best to 60 yards hasn't cost us that many points this year...

I say we keep Kris, obviously, and we can look for someone else to bandwagon hate on...

I think you're out of your mind. He's been stellar. from that range. Better than almost anyone in the league. The only reason he didn't go to the pro bowl last year is because of Bironas' gaudy numbers.

He's going to be fine. He's been streaky before but he settles in. He is probably out of practice because of all those pesky TD's.

FGs are fine but the kickoff could use a little more oomph.

Honestly if we're gonna get worried about a kicking situation I'd say lets go over Matt Turk's spot on the team first. It seems to me, especially after watching his body language after kicks that he had a pretty bad game yesterday.

M. Turk 5 punts for an average of 27 yards. Although he did nail 2 inside the 20 yard line. His long yesterday was 40 yards.
