    the guy is barely servicable as a number 3. he doesnt know how to play the wr position, doesnt find the open zones doesnt come back to the ball and has horrible hands.

    I'm not laughing at you...It's just that everytime I hear Jacoby and small hands I think about the guy from the commercial....

    hmmmm well he is night and day, one game he will make 5 big time highlight reel plays, and then the next 2 games he is nowhere to be seen.

    That's JJ. He's a wasted roster spot if you ask me. I like a good return TD as much as the next guy but you got to waste that roster sport for 16 games to get two or three performances out of him. The rest of the time he might as well be on IR for all it matters.

    Vinny was talking about the lack of a legitimate #2 opposite Andre Johnson and while I appreciate the things KW & JJ do neither one should be better than 3rd on the depth chart at best.

    I would say they ARE no better than 3rd on the depth chart and maybe even 4th.. OD is very arguably #2 and with the emergence of Casey, he could be a legitimate #3-ish. Both are more dynamic in the open field than KW and both have better hands(most of the time)than Jacoby. An asset like Casey can serve the same purpose as a #2 that can stretch the field, only he'll draw D's in closer so AJ can get open deeper.

    Jacoby & Walter were a little nicked up. What's bad, is our depth at WR....... Bryant Johnson, David Anderson.


    That's why Casey had a 126 yard recieving game.

    Damn. And here I was thinking he was a weapon. Just another fill in whil KW develops some flair and JJ devolops some WR moves that resemble his PR skills.

    Jacoby's contribution is his speed, and that was negated by his injured knee. A slow Jacoby is a practice-squad-caliber Jacoby.

    I don't agree with that.

    Casey made plays because he took advantage if his match up and made things happen. The lack if receiving depth has nothing to do with him having a good day IMO.

    we need to draft a big physical WR that AJ can begin grooming. i was hoping that would be Dickerson but i was wrong. Maybe this years draft !

    In another thread I joked that we should go the ATL route and mortgage our draft to move up for Blackmon.....

    I now think I was only halfway joking...

    Our lack of a solid no.2 is going to hurt us throughout the year. The rank of receiving options are

    1. Andre Johnson
    2. Owen Daniels
    3. James Casey
    4. Arian Foster
    ........

    Then Jacoboy/ Walters.


    Hoping we pick up a WR in the first round in the draft (Jeffery, Blackmon).

    well i think there is a couple of really good WRs coming out this year, i dont think we would need to give up to much to get a good one.

    There are 2 elite ones in Blackmon and Alshon Jeffery. Then there are a few really solid wrs in Fuller, Floyd and possibly Sanu/Broyles
