    Considering all the talk of the Texans lack of a #2 wide receiver AND a playmaking return man, do you wish he was back?

    I thought I would never say this, but we needed him this year. Not in terms of his couple of bonehead plays per year, but his playmaking ability, especially in the return game.

    The "unforgivable sin" vs. Baltimore last year was terrible. I wanted him gone too. But considering all the problems at the slots his left open, any thoughts on weather you would take him back if you could do it over?

    KW still had more yards this year compared to JJ receiving and one more TD. I still don't think he is a very good receiver.

    His return game has improved but I don't doubt he will make a mistake that will be costly in the superbowl.

    I don't miss him too much but I am sure he would have helped us at times and hurt us at others.

    That's assuming he made plays and was a game changer when he was here...which he was not.

    You do realize Jacoby wasn't that far off from matching Walter's numbers & he was a #3 WR...not a #2 WR like Walter who started every game & thus had more opportunities then Jacoby.

    Hindsight is always 20/20. We could've used Jones, but who's to say he would've produced like he did in Baltimore. I personally think he needed a change to light a fire under him. He was public enemy #1 & most of it was his own doing. He simply was too comfortable & was a bit too arrogant despite his mistakes. He would've been helpful IF he acted & played like he did for the Ravens, but that's a big IF when its all said & done. The change seems to have been the best for him more then the Texans.

    Agreed. Also Flacco has an absolute cannon to make all the throws Shaub usually can't.

    Thank you for Jacoby...met him at a radio show- spoke really well of Houston and his time there. Admitted he made some mistakes because "he was trying to do too much"...

    Yes, walking AND chewing bubble gum can be quite the daunting task for some.

    Or, catching AND holding onto the ball--as it were.

    I don't miss him, but I don't think we had the right personnel to use him to his full capability. I think he benefits greatly from being a WR#3 and the 5th target on their team.

    Nope. He needed a change of scenery to focus his career, and the fact is that getting booed at home games would have been really bad for his psyche.

    Chill. This is not the smack talk forum. Fact is JJ's hands were poor while in Houston.

    My point is why do fans feel the need to denigrate a player who made mistakes or performed poorly for their team?

    Its okay as a fan to disparage, demean and personally insult a player but when the player or another fan reacts, its poor sportsmanship?

    Glass houses.....

    I believe you are aware there is a sub-forum where fan on fan smack talk is allowed, that's just not this sub-forum.

    Do you honestly feel Luv_ya_blue's post disparaged, demeaned, and personally insulted Jacoby Jones?

    "Butthurt cream"? Is that a staple at local convenience stores in Baltimore?

    For me, it's because he was "a player who made mistakes or performed poorly for their team."
