OK what happens now? Nothing? A serious talking-to? what you all think?
this was the game where he should have showed everyone that he has moved on from last weeks game - what happens? he makes even more mistakes.
Let him play the rest of the preseason and go from there.
Kubes is probably chewing him out now.
Did he fumble another one? After his muffed punt?
Sheesh, call off the dogs, they'll get this sorted out before the first game.
I'm afraid that he might get shell-shock after these two pre-season games. I still want him to have the "take it all the way" mentality, but I just hope he can make the right decisions when the ball is coming towards him.
You know, I would only really start worrying when these fumbles start happening in the regular season. Right now, he just needs to learn 'grab the ball then run not run then grab the ball'.
Yes. An end-around. NFL.com credited Brink with hit but I'm not so sure. I want to see the replay.
But from what the announcers said, it was a sure TD. Everyone flowed to the run fake and he had open field ahead of him.
I was wondering if someone was going to start a JJ thread. LOL
Guys that make it to this level should be better, most especially in their 2nd year. I guess we wait and see what he does at Dallas next week.
I was big on Jacoby last year but he hasn't seemed the same since he hurt his shoulder. I think he can still get it together but man he did not look good tonight. Although he did have that one nice catch.
He better get his head right and stop screwing up or he is not going to last long.
Had to, just had to, Thorn.
i live not far from where he went to college and its a very small town. i bet its like going from highschool to the nfl. he is the only reason i even know where lane college is.
Yeah, Lane College is pretty small. 1700 students and only 46 faculty/staff. My high school is more than double the size.
I hope so.
I'm afraid he has the football equivalent of the yips. Like Chuck Knoblauch throwing to first base. Rick Ankiel pitching. Shaq and free throws. What expert archers call "target panic."
It's the opposite of being in the zone. You have so much going on in your head, you lose confidence and trust in everything you do. Sometimes it is just trying too hard, and not just doing and being.
The bad thing about this is though sometimes players can work through it, sometimes it can't be coached out.
It's a horrible horrible feeling to have. I feel so bad for the guy.
I want to see Slaton take PRs with the 1s next week. If he's solid in that role then Jacoby is going to have to win the WR 5 job outright. But at this point he's not suiting up on Sundays until he proves that he's taking to the coaching and stops repeating the same mistakes.
not a bad idea, since he might not get many carries this yr. i just want a reason to buy a number 12 jersey
I feel bad for people that bought JJ jersey's last offseason. I saw a few people wearing them after his great preseason.
I think almost all of us were just far too high on Jacoby Jones. He was a good preseason story last year. "Kid from small school does good in the pro's and isn't phased by the transition" made for good press and he really was exciting but that was preseason before he knew what he was getting into and this is year two and the rest of the league isn't surprised at how quick Jacoby Jones is. They had him figured out in about three weeks last year and the sad truth is that he's nothing special at this level.
I'm not really interested in seeing the Texans keep him at this point. He's last years kool aid and nothing more.
