I tried returning with him. I'm a good PR guy, but not with JJ. I had to switch Moses with Starling (or anyone else in the depth chart) for better results. (or Allen Rossum, whom I traded Dave Ragone for.....haha)

They made him way too fast in Madden. He is a 92 speed, nearly as fast as Starling at 93.

I am thinking they are letting him go now to make a move on someone (possibly Bouleware maybe?)

This is on my xbox, and I have uploaded one of the roster updates via xbox live. I don't remember if Starling was on the original set up or not.

Starling came from an Online Roster update when I played Madden Online. Along with Matt Murphy and some others.

According to the chronic it was for Rivers' spot.

...The Texans signed unrestricted free-agent Marcellus Rivers to take Moses' spot on the roster. The need for a tight end became paramount with the loss of Bennie Joppru to a torn knee ligament earlier this week.....

Default I told my son about JJ....

A quick JJ story to share. After one of the pre-season practices a few years ago, my young son (7 years at the time) and I were last in line to get autographs. My son had already decided he was going to grow up to be a NFL quarterback because he played catch with his Daddy every weekend in the back yard.

When we got to the front of the line, JJ and some young receivers were signing autographs. My son proudly told them that he was going to be a quarterback some day.

They gave the autographs but went further. They stopped, grabbed a ball and played catch with him for a few moments. Their logic was that after all, if he was going to be an NFL quarterback, he should get to play catch with REAL NFL receivers.

In the grand scheme of life, it was a small gesture. To my son, it meant the world. They encouraged him and praised how great his passes were and his technique. They were certain that if he worked hard towards his goal that he would succeed. JJ and the other receivers were fantastic. Since then my son has worked and worked. Now, a few years later, he is now playing youth football.... his position, quarterback. His confidence started that day with JJ Moses.

My son and I will be forever grateful.

JJ represented the best in what Professional Athletes should be.

He will always have two fans where ever he goes in life. The gesture won't be forgotten in this house.

So this afternoon, I told my son that the Texans had released JJ. He was absoutely devastated. He cried for ten minutes before I calmed him down.

It is easy for us grown ups to criticize and compare to this possibility or that. He could have been this or that. I wish we had so and so in his place or his slot will go to so and so. I wish we kept him... He is glad we didn't... Nothing wrong with that for grown ups to debate...

A child's view of the game is much more pure. He simply loves the Texans and they are the best in his mind. To my son, JJ was his friend. To my son, he lost a friend and hero that was nice to him.

I like the game better through my son's eyes. He goes into every game excited and thrilled. Convinced his Texans will win. He cheers like a madman for every play -- offense - defense - special teams. He wears his little Texans Uniform and Jersey to every game complete with helmet and shoulder pads.

His big regret was that they never sold JJ Moses Jerseys. He really wanted one.

JJ said to him, "Gotta cheer for the little guys..., you can make it, just keep trying..."

My son would scream at the games, "Go JJ, Go JJ..." When he got tackled my son would yell, "Try again next time, you'll get 'em"

Just some thoughts through the perspective of a child.

I'm assuming from your username that you are from Clear Lake. Does your son play for a TIFI youth team? There are a couple in the CL area. The Clear Lake Space Raiders & the NASA Falcons are both TIFI teams. I was just wondering because I coach for another TIFI team in Pasadena, the Bears. As a matter of fact, I believe our 1st game this upcoming season is vs. the Space Raiders ... Great story.

His mom is a friend of mine. I used to copy his photos off the internet for her, and give them to her at work. I'll copy this thread, minus the expletives. I think he'll appreciate your thoughts.

Wow. I'm gone for a week, and all sorts of things happen. JJ getting released, Joppru getting hurt again, picking up Rivers, etc. I was really looking forward to seeing the competition for the KR and PR duties during TC and the Preseason with JJ being part of it, but I guess I'll just have to deal with watching PB, Mathis, Hollings, Starling, and Swinton duke it out.

He ROCKED in ESPN2K5.

I'll miss him on the field and on my PS/2.

Some of my best player pics I took are of him...

In this era of free agency, it's so hard to have a team identity, which is something I really value. JJ Moses was so much a part of the Texans' spirit.

He was also solid and dependable, qualities I value greatly as well. I think a fumbled punt is so much more disasterous for a team than a return for a TD is great.

I will miss JJ on Sundays. I will miss 70,000 people yelling his name every time he touches the ball.

We'll hardly even recognize this team come opening day - with so many roster changes.

Good luck, JJ. We'll miss you. Thanks for everything.

No Touchdowns are better.

A fumbled punt is usually a touchdown for the other team. 7 points down. A touchdown is 7 points up. Seems to me they cancel each other.

However, emotionally a touchdown is great for you, but I don't think damages the other team's morale that much. But a fumbled punt is really frustrating. Watch the home crowd go quiet after a fumbled punt, if we fumble it. It just takes the noise right out of the stadium.

A fumbled punt is not always a touchdown and it is not always even a field goal.
They dont even out.
Taking the noise out of the stadium??? The team that scores the most wins... Period
