Default Place Kickers

Um....how come we haven't even talked to Niel Rackers? I mean place kicker is a position that needs to get better? I mean, bring some serious comp for that kicker that must have stock in Reliant.

77% vs 78% careerwise is not significantly different. Is 82% and 77% that different? I don't know.

I think we need a new kicker but also a different philosophy on offense. Just becuase we are in position for a 48 yd fg should not mean we run stop trying to improve the fg attempt. Cutting a 48 to a 42 could significantly improve our place kicking.

Kicker will be addressed either as the last pick in the draft, or bringing in undrafted free agent kickers. Don't think we'd sign a retred, they want $.

Would love to see you guys break out the soap for a Kicker. I expect them to bring in plenty of competition. It doesn't have to be a name guy. Just a guy who performs better than K. Brown.

But I'm on the record as saying I 100% expect him to be back this year and kick well. And if he doesn't then I think you'll see them replace him.

The place kicker position must be improved. We need to bring in someone else because Kris Brown cannot be trusted. I hope the Texans are really seriously looking at an upgrade. We lost 2 games last year because of field goals and that can't happen next year.

This wouldn't surprise me in the least. It's a Texans tradition to keep poor performers like Chris Palmer, David Carr, Richard Smith, etc. a year too long and be surprised that they didn't magically get better during the off-season.

They need to quit dandling those who are arguably costing the team wins, speed their decision process, and exercise a 100% comittmemt to winning.

Default Re: Place Kickers

This team just confounds me sometimes. Kris Brown legitimately cost us multiple games this year.

When you are on the line in a "Playoffs or bust" mode, and your KICKER loses more than 1 game in the last few minutes, you have a problem.

There are tons of guys who can kick a football. You have to show accountability. I want KB gone yesterday. If I was one of the other players, I would be furuious. They fumble the ball once and they're benched, but KB misses at point blank in his only job and he gets another year. Wtf??

While true, unfortunately there aren't tons who can kick it accurately in a game situation.

I expect Brown to keep his job IF he has a good preseason, but I think even if he makes the team he will be on a VERY short leash.

This seems like a pretty easy problem to solve.

1. Find a college kicker that made clutch kicks when he was in college.

2. Find a couple more.

3. Bring them in to camp.

That's what I'm saying. I guess we aren't looking at FA kickers because we don't want to spend alot of money on PKs. However, I would consider it because our offense hasn't necessarily shown to be nails inside the 20s and we had quite a few bad second halves where our offense/coaching would sputter once we got inside the 40. Be nice to come away with some points.
