    and I like it!

    J Jo is playing very physical, the last few games especially. He is showing to be a very worthy investment. I love this guy's style of play.

    Rackers is crazy, like he just broke out of the zoo or something, I think it's great he wants to get down there and lay a hit on someone. How many other kickers in the league play like that?

    could joseph be more perfect for wade's defense? he has been near flawless so far. with the saving versus nnamdi (allowing for manning and mason), J Jo has been the best signing in the biggest free agent.

    my shout out goes to cushing again. he absolutely has chris johnson's number and was again a monster in every aspect of the defense. man to man against a WR or back, zone, run support, blitz, calling the plays ... cushing has been everything on defense.

    Then Rackers might as well give them a blank check cause Rackers loves hitting on kickoffs. Wanna say he played defense in college before becoming a kicker...

    I wanted a camera on Rackers on his next kick-off after that tackle. It came pretty quickly, and I thought a Titan might go after him.

    Rackers ..... hits like a football player , not a liquored up kicker.

    Braman is a ST monster ....


    Keo had a hell of a play on ST.

    yeah, i doubt there's anything that'll keep rackers or hartman out of the mix ... though i bet joe loves it. that's one way to fire the team up. have your kicker flatten someone and come off the field raising hell.

    and nothing pours water and snuffs out that torch than when your kicker goes out of game with a concussion. I like good hits but don't never want to see a kicker, punter of QB making them.

    I really liked the Keo hit. You can see the blocker trying to contain him, and Keo just pretty much runs through him. I definitely did not see him coming. I was like...wtf?

    Before this season I thought Joseph was known for his cover skills, I had no idea he could lay the wood. It's been a pleasant surprise.

    When we brought in Jon Joseph, a friend of mine, whom is more knowledgable about sports and who's opinion I respect, sent me the following text: "You guys did well. Joseph is the real deal. Better than Nnamdi."

    I agree.

    I would love to see Rackers get fined 10k for a hit, just for the hilarity of it.

    We were talking about this during the game. We had no idea JJoe was so physical.

    Outstanding hit by Rackers too.

    Loved seeing that kind of tackling in the open field like that as well. Joseph will still get beat every once in awhile like other top corners do, but he's been great out there for us all season long.

    Still peeved that he had two touchdowns taken away from him against Pitt.

    Rackers tackled like a madman. That been said. I would prefer Rackers stay away from tackling someone unless he has to. We need healthy kicker on our roster.

    Go Texans!!!

    I agree, plus the kicker should be the last line of defense on a kickoff. But in saying that....... It was fun to watch!!!!!

    It was fun to watch. I had a big smile on my face when that happened.

    Stay safe Rackers!!! We need your leg more than your madman tackling.
    Go Texans!!!

    He's a football player. Let him play.

    If dude wants to make tackles let him do it. He's laying it on the line helping the team.

    I would never coach the aggression and willingness out of any players. Plus it's demoralizing to the opposition when the kicker lays the wood to someone.

    Plus I would think it should raise the level of play of the other special teamers. I mean, if the kicker makes a big play, what excuse do the other guys have?
