    1st play of the game @ CIN.

    He ran a lazy route on a sure TD strike....AGAIN. Beautiful throw by Yates and Jones was running the route like he didn't think he'd get the ball.

    I've seen enough. Get this guy outta here.

    With AJ out, he's our deep threat right now. Hopefull Tate will connect with him sometime today.

    You know you have a hands issue when you are a body catcher and a ball drops down into your numbers and you can't hang on to it. How big of a mistake was it to IR Lestar Jean?

    This. Everyone agrees.

    Was he IR'd because he wouldn't last on the practice squad or because there was a real injury?

    He plays like a rookie with potential. Yet he will never live up to that potential, it just happens randomly.

    He was at his best his first couple years when he was the #3 after AJ and Kevin Walter. He showed plenty of potential back then.

    Fast forward to this year and he's supposed to be the #1 and it's obvious that he doesn't want the job. The writing was on the wall after the Raiders game when he got 11 targets and only caught one pass for 9 yards.

    I'm not sure what his problem is. I've heard rumors about him spending too much time at the clubs and it seems like every August there's a Chron article about how he's gotten serious about the upcoming season.

    I think we need that and to also bring in some FA's and overhaul the position. Jacoby's a knucklehead, Walter's old, and Mason's really old. I'd like to see a 1st-rounder and a FA pickup like the Cowboys got with Laurent Robinson.

    His problem is that he sucks and he doesn't want to be great...he's content. As a receiver he's already fat and happy. A.J. is one of the best in the league and still busts his ass to try to improve...Jacoby is just happy to be on a NFL roster. That's why this guy has ALWAYS been nothing, but potential and never comes close to improving towards reaching that potential.

    It's cut bait time with Jacoby Jones. What a complete waste of time, he should've been gone after last season, but for some reason our team thought it was a good idea to pass up other FA WRs and bring this lazy loser back.

    That's bull shit, all the way around. Jacoby was way ahead of his defender, that's a TD if Yates throws the ball ahead of him.

    He had to slow down, turn around to have a chance.

    He should have caught that ball, I'm not saying any difference there..... but lazy route, perfect throw.....

    I don't think so.

    No, on the play he was talking about, Yates overthrew Jacoby.

    Yeah, but do you know what's not bullshit? The fact that Jacoby sucks as a NFL wide receiver.

    From what I remember it was injury but not necessarily season ending. A shoulder or something where he wouldn't be able to play until late in the season. Or how about cutting Dickerson loose? We could use better athletes than Mason or B Johnson. Walter is still a good receiver, he's not a probowler or anything but a decent 3rd option. They really need somebody to stand tall across from AJ and it's never been Jones. Hopefully between the draft and maybe a guy like Jean or Tolliver coming up the ranks we'll see less of Jacoby "Potential" Jones.

    i've done all i can to defend jacoby as a playmaker who can be huge for us if used as such, but i've got nothing left. lazy routes, bad routes, bad hands, poor timing, and simply isnt getting it done. his biggest contribution to the texans this season is a couple of bombs and flopping for PI calls. i would honestly rather see trindon holliday in for the plays that jacoby is getting.

    I learned nothing new about Jacoby in this game. He continues to underwhelm. Were I the QB, he is not a reliable option for me. Seems to me a game cannot go by where he: a) makes a pedestrian catch, and then does a shimmy dance or reminds everyone it is a first down, or b) drops something in his bread basket. A lot.

    Even on the PI play on the final drive, my first reaction was one of disgust as he was on the ground yelling/begging for the flag. Regardless of whether he was right, he just bugs.

    Cut bait at the end of the year.

    I have to agree, Jacoby was the one dim spot in what simply an amazing show of will and determination today. How much cap room would we save if we sent him on his way? I get the feeling we'll need some help in that department.
