    At this stage in his career, he ought to be running crisp routes, coming back for the ball, fighting for the ball, and getting open better than he is. I just don't see it. And frankly, I don't think he'll ever be as good as Kevin Walter, which is already a pretty low bar.

    This team needs WRs.

    He tried to catch that batted ball in the last minute. Just shows his lack of feel for the game. Going into the draft I felt WR was a major need for us, how we did not address this is mind boggling.

    There is no one I dislike more than Jones. Dude is horrible. No hands, no awareness, jumps offsides as a WR. He's good for punt return here and there but horrible as a WR.

    He thought he got saved by a PI ... turns out, no flag. Good call, he just got burned. I loath him. Plus, he can't for the life of him run FORWARD on returns ... drives me insane

    Yeah, Jacoby sucks.

    But you want to know what sucks more?

    This organization that thought we would be just fine going into the season with Jacoby and Walter as our #2 and #3 WRs.

    I agree that the organization needs to recognize that shortcoming. But I don't know that I can blame them for going all in on defense this off-season.

    The amount of money we gave him to keep him around is just stupid.

    maybe if he spent more time working on getting better instead of partying all over houston like he's a superstar he would amount to something.

    Why catch the ball at the 5 on an over the shoulder catch?

    So far throwing to Jacoby is a waste of a down.

    I honestly feel right now that I can't root for him.. I can't see how he can be on the field anymore.

    Bad game but most of the balls he was trying to catch were WAY off. Matt had a terrible day to combine with Jacoby's bad day.

    His cuts take longer than mine. The balls are there but he takes so long to get out of his break that it looks like a bad throw.

    That PI call he drew toward the end was legitimate, but be honest: Do you really think that little contact would have knocked down AJ? Or hell, even Walter? And the man just can't run an out route to save his life.
