I was researching to see if there were any younger Gramatica's on the horizon, or if Steve Christie has a son out there now kicking....someone other than Kris Brown.

What round do good kickers typically get drafted in? Hunter Lawrence can make clutch FG's, I want him. Might also help us get some support from Austin.

I'm sure Kris Brown will be evaluated in the off-season. There is no reason to rush such decisions with this team.

Heaven forbid the Texans actually do something about an underperforming player during the season. We'll just wait until the offseason - as usual.

Give me a break.

Kubes was asked today on his show on 610am about Kris Brown and his words were that the " Texans have a lot invested in Kris and he is our kicker." So I looked up his contract and forgot he signed an extention during the summer and now I understand why we haven't looked for a new kicker yet. McNair doesn't want to waste anymore money on another kicker while he has one on the roster threw 2013 and the $2.5 million guranteed.

6/18/2009: Signed a four-year, $10 million contract. The deal includes $2.5 million guaranteed. 2009-2012: Under Contract, 2013: Free Agent

Its a shame that we can no longer depend on our kicker. We could really use some clutch FGs these next 2 games...

Why anyone every gives a kicker a 4 year extension is beyond me. These guys are all just a couple of big misses away from developing permayips. It's not like you can't find a dozen free agents at any point.

I don't think I could watch the field if he came in to kick a game winner against the Patriots that would send us to the playoffs. I'd hope for a make, but I don't know if his psyche could handle the pressure.

I didnt say I wanted Kris here. I was just reporting what I heard today. I wanted him cut 12-11-05 and started a thread on here and I got so many negative reps because people thought I was crazy and stupid and was also called fairweather to the max.

Looks like you had some foresight. I wasn't posting on here back then.

I like Kris, but enough already. I know he's an Original Texan, and that's a cute story, but he's messing up a bit too much.

Say what you want about Jerry Jones, but, he would have cut Kris Brown MONTHS ago, new contract be damned.

Pressure. The Texans had a lot on the line this season. For the first time. He knew every kick was critical. Maybe he couldn't handle it.
