This team needs WRs.

Indeed. He runs shit routes, he's got lousy hands, he's terrible at getting separation. He's the guy you keep at the bottom of your depth chart because he's fast as all hell and runs a punt back for a TD once a year.

But hey, he does a hell of a "Look what a bad-ass I am" walk after he's tackled on punt returns. That's gotta be worth.... No? Nothing? Ok.


Here he's Gary's #2. It truly boggles the mind trying to figure out what Gary is thinking.

Yep. I think you keep him around for special teams at the right price, but he should NOT be this high on the depth chart at WR.

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is just not a good WR

We all knew that he isn't any good as a Wr. Hopefully the coaching staff and front office will notice it now.

His PR skills are frustrating too. Quit dancing when you catch the freaking ball and run!!!

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is just not a good WR

...And just think: We could have had Plaxico Burress for a little less than what we paid Jacoby Jones.

I know the Texans are all about Guy Smilies on their team; but give me a break, Plaxico shot his friggin self on accident! He's not a hood rat like Pacman Jones, and he didn't murder anybody like a certain Raven (nevermore, nevermore!)

Plaxico isn't exactly burning it up in NYC, but c'mon, he would have been a great placeholder until next years' draft.

Default The problem with JJ

There is a lot of blame to go around but I'm going to lay a large heap of it on Jacoby. We run a timing and rhythm passing game which means when Schaub throws the deep out he throws it before Jones is out if his break. He's expecting a quick and sharp cut, but Jones is cutting like he has nails in his shoes which takes a half second longer which is why all of this balls are just out of his diving reach. Some of the blame has to go to the coaches, I realize jones has more athletic potential but Walter is the better route runner and better football player. Put Walter in the number one slot let jj be the no 2 or 3. 11 targets 1? Completion ridiculous.

On the last play jj has to wall off the defender and come back to the ball, thus lessening the time the ball is in the air ergo lessening the potential for another player to make a play. Instead he took a step away from the ball allowing the defender to fill the space he had just vacated.

On returns jj needs to get upfield, the lanes develop because of north south movement ruining the other teams angles, running east and west always draws a crowd.

As for the o-line they have always had problems with massive dlines, no surprise there.

Seriously, I wouldn't release JJ. He's our punt returner. I'd bring up Meahl though and see if he could contribute. I'd drop JJ to the bottom of the WR depth chart for that useless performance though. 11 targets and one catch is where you say "Bring up the practice squad guy, he can't do any worse than this".

You mean the punt returner that has to go backwards before he can go forward. He takes like 3 seconds to make up his mind on what he is going to do and then he usually goes backward in stead of just catching the ball and running forward.

Any other WR on the Texans should be able to do better than JJ.

on a positive note after 3 years at least he doesn't muff the punt about 50% of the time..

That thought scares me, because there are only two dudes higher than Gary. And one of them can't be replaced.
