Default Jacoby Jones is looking good....

Watching the Ravens vs Bengals & JJ looks like a good receiver for them so far. Hopefully he figured it out & will have a good career there.

I find it impossible to wish him well. If he grows up and puts it all together up there that's a draft pick and 5 years of waiting the Texans will never get back.

Blame that on Kubiak, not the kid. The draft pick part, he had the growin up thing done the last two years he was here.

Spread blame where ever you wish but the fact is, to this point he's looking like a Pro WR. Good for him. Like many have said in other threads, sometimes it just takes a different setting to ply one's wares. He's been impressive so far to me.

Yes, hope he does well. Same for Pollard and Leach, two of my favorite former Texans.

It's weird seeing three Texans contributing so much on another team. Hopefully we lost them because we have better players.

I think we have better options than JJ, Mario, & Pollard (although I loved Pollard's attitude), but I don't think we upgraded from Vonta or Ryans.

But, no use crying over $hit you have no control over. It is what it is and the free agency era makes it very hard to hold onto multiple playmakers for any extended period.

Default Re: Jacoby Jones is looking good....

Jacoby will stink.


I work with a girl that grew up with Jacoby and still talks to him a little here and there when she runs into him in the club. She tells me that Jacoby was always a complete knucklehead growing up. Said that he always did what he wanted and could care less about being a responsible type of guy. This girl is a straight shooter as well. She also said that Jacoby has always been a big time smoker. Said that he would never get off of that stuff. Not that pot is all that bad, but for a guy that plays in the NFL, it's not the best thing to hear when you're talking about a guy like Jacoby. I don't recall him ever failing a drug test though.

LOL, he does good for half a game and people are already trying to kiss his ass. Screw JJ and the horse he rode off on. I'm glad that worthless receiver is out of here. I hated when he was returning kicks too. Texans management finally woke up and got rid of him.

If she grew up with Mario, how does she know about JJ? Did she grow up with both, was that hearsay from Mario, or was that a typo & you meant to say that she grew up with JJ?

I genuinely hope he got his act together. From a human standpoint, you hate to see someone fail or sabotage themselves.

Sorry, but I was just hitting up a thread about Mario. Lol! Typo!

I meant to say JJ. It had nothing to do with Mario man.


She had talked about how she saw him in the club out here recently and what a nut he still was. That was a few months ago though. We all know that JJ has a lot of talent, but the gy is just wet between the ears. He is your typical cat that likes to get ****ed up and party, and play football as well, but I don't see him ever taking his job seriously like he needs to. Plus, he is already past that age where most WR's break out. Sure it happens here and there after 5 years or so with certain guys, but it's pretty rare. I think JJ will be a journeyman at this point.

3 catches for 46 yards and he's being called a Pro Bowler?

Interesting to say the least.

People would be surprised by how many players smoke weed in the NFL. Its really not that hard to pass one urine test a year. Stop smoking for a month and you're home free.

This year game one - 3 catches 46 yards
Last year game one - 3 catches 43 yards

Jacoby is what I refer to as tantalizing mediocrity. In fact, I believe there was even a thread started during or after game one last year called "Jacoby Just Shut the Haters Up", although in all fairness, I think that was due to a punt return TD, not a 3 reception game.

I don't wish Jacoby ill - quite the opposite, but in most cases, after five years, you are what you are, and what I think Jacoby is is a borderline starting NFL WR.
