    I guess Kris is not the face of the franchise?

    Kris really needs to start paying attention. He didn't look all that interested last week and that first missed kick was just bad...

    lol

    I yelled...."Cut that Mofo" right after he missed that kick.

    then later I said if he misses this 48 yarder he is gone....boom right down the middle.

    either way, the Texans need to explore options at that position. If not this season, next off season.

    I predicted before the game that we would see some competition in camp this week and I'm sticking to it. Brown is a below-average NFL kicker.

    Someone's going to say it, so it might as well be me...
    Name a better option who's available to replace him.
    I agree that if we find a better kicker, we should replace Brown... I just don't think there's a better option out there right now. At least none that I know of.

    If Brown gets much worse they may as well hold open tryouts in Houston because it can't get a lot worse.

    I think Brown has to go. I feel so nervous with him kicking and I know he is too. If you saw him in the close-ups before he kicks, he takes LOTS of deep breaths. Kickers cant be that nervous...their confidence is more important than their leg.

    Good to see others coming around regarding Brown's inconsistencies. Last year he was a train wreck. Looks like more of the same this year. My only frustration with the new regime is their refusal to bring someone in to challenge this dude.

    NFL total access just ran a story on an author who is in Bronco training camp to learn how to place kick.

    Maybe, we could bring him in for some competition.

    What's messed up is that every time Kris Brown lines up for a kick, I get that same feeling that I get when Brad Lidge comes into the game lately...

    I was thinking the exact same thing ... I liken his situation to BLidge since Pujols took him deep last year in the NLCS at minute Maid. KBrown hasn't been remotely the same since last year. It's a mental thing IMO. One way or the other we need results, not excuses.

    I heard Al DelGreco and Eddie Murray will be in this week.

    How old is Tom Dempsey anyway?

    It's one thing to lose some games when your team is lousy and end up with a first round draft pick, and it's another thing entirely to lose some games that prevent you from going to the playoffs! That would be sick! Personally, I'm hoping he gets his head on straight and this won't be a problem during regular season. But, everytime I see him miss, I get that gut feeling we need to be "beating the bushes" (no pun intended) looking for another kicker!
