Default Per John Mcclain: The Texans Keep Neal Rackers

Rackers wins the job. He's a maniac when covering his own kickoffs, and
is far more accurate lately than Brown has been. I was worried the
Texans would fall for the "Brad Lidge Syndrome." Nice move, Kubiak.

Default Re: Rackers staying, Brown gone

There was a little informal kicking competition going on at half time yesterday. Rackers kept backing up until Brown walked away. Looks like Rackers re-found his leg because he hit the last one from 59 yards.

Thanks for the info, Infantrycak. From what I could see on TV, Rackers
dang-near caused a fumble on one kickoff. He consistently sticks his
head into piles on kickoffs. I'd bet that didn't go unnoticed by Joe
Marciano.

I'm glad they cut Brown, because we should know how tough it is to
have a season like he had and come back. The Astros found that out
with Brad Lidge, and the first kick Brown missed would have been the
most challenging time for his mental stability.

Kris Brown did alot for this team in the past, but his time is over. Best of luck to him, most likely as the dallas cowboys place kicker.

Be gone of all your excuses this year, it he misses at least we can all say Kubiak went with another guy and it is what it is. Instead of the "we should have gotten rid of Kris "miss" Brown.

Wow...that's calling him out in front of everyone!

Well, if you want to take the job away from someone, that's what you gotta do I guess. Hopefully he'll be the kicker we need.

Just got the 610 text. Wish Brown luck, but now I won't automatically think we are going to miss a kick when we take one, so that is a positive.

What sux is wasn't he the last original Texan?

Kris Brown is a class act and was a great role model for his behavior and community involvement (from what I have read). It's always tough to part with someone who has given as much as he has, but a change is needed. Neil Rackers will do everything he can to show the correct decision was made.

And I loved seeing him stick his helmet in last night and almost cause a fumble. That goes along way with coaches and others running down field to bust their asses on kickoffs.

Gotta go pick him up in my TT fantasy league quickly!

Kris is indeed a Class Act and I wish him the best. Who knows, if he doesn't get snapped up soon, we may re-sign him if Rackers falters.

He's a good guy, but I need wins, not misses. I'm glad to see a new kicker on our squad who has the leg and accuracy.

What he said.

Thank you for your service Brown, except for last season.
I'll never forget that game winner over the Colts. I was there, and I was excited.
Good luck in your future endeavors, Im just glad they aren't with the Texans.

I dont want to cringe in fear every time I see our kicker trot out there.

I wish Kris all the best. He had a bad year last seaon, but before that he was solid and always a good guy. I really hope Rackers works out well. Kris is still a good player and I'm sure he'll find work.
