He didn't work out for us, he did work out for them.

Get used to it. It happens all the time to all teams in the NFL. Jacoby Jones will not be the first or the last time it happens to us as well.

That said, **** Jacoby Jones. He can kiss my ass.

I got him, I thought it was spot on.

I don't regret the Texans letting Jacoby go. He's a great returner and a good deep threat every once in a while. The Texans special team this year was not good enough to utilize Holiday correctly, so what makes you guys think Jacoby would do any better here? I give the Ravens credit for using him properly. We don't have a QB with a big arm to take advantage of Jacoby's speed so he almost useless to us. Some players fit certain teams for some reason. We tried with Jacoby and didn't work and his salary was an issue too. I'm happy for Jacoby and the Ravens but I still think the Texans made the right move by letting him go.

What am I missing here? This year Jacoby had his fewest catches since 2009 (30), his fewest rec yards since 2008 (406) and only caught one touchdown in the regular season. The only capacity he was more effective as a Raven was kick return duties, and he didn't even do that last year as a Texan.

Exactly.

There's a specific skill-set required to play WR in our 'system' and Jacoby did not excel at it. It's not his fault mind you, because fighting-off-double-coverage-to-retrieve-an-under-thrown-pass, is a difficult skill mastered by only a handful of elite receivers.

Last year as a Texan Jacoby Jones caught 31 passes for 512 yards. This year he caught 27 passes for 370 yards. It was Jacoby's worst year as a WR in the NFL since 2008 when he caught just three passes for 81 yards.

That said, " *FUNK Jacoby Jones. He can kiss my ass."
I got the mental pic of Thorn sitting on a golden throne atop a lofty stair case wearing a bejeweled crown & cloak and weilding a scepter when he said this.

*Edited for Television...

Never let facts get in the way of a good joke.
