    Prompted by the discussion on the other thread regarding Randy Bullock or Shayne Graham. Let's put it to a vote.

    I haven't been to any practice and from what I have read On here they seem to be dead even. If that is true,then the texans go with the younger leg(with that said, I just gave randy his pink slip )

    Yesterday I was all set to keep Graham, but I've changed my mind. Again. LOL

    Since Graham wasn't impressive in his kick offs either, and since Hartman will be returning, I say go with the younger guy we drafted to do the job.

    I voted for Bullock, but that doesn't mean I won't change my mind again. I reserve the right to be indecisive and act like a typical fan. :spin:

    I voted Graham. He has been better during the preseason. I think they should keep Bullock on the practice squad though.

    I have no idea. Before the preseason I was happy with Bullock starting, and I'm a Longhorns fan. He only had one miss, and it wasn't even that bad since it was a 52 yards FG. But Graham has been impressive as well, so I have no clue.

    Graham has kicked 5 FGs this preseason, and has made all of them. 1 from 20-29, 1 from 30-39, 2 from 40-49, and 1 from 50-59.

    Bullock has kicked 4 FGs this preseason, and only missed one. 1 from 20-29, 1 from 30-39, and 1 for 2 from 50-59.

    I think we have previously heard that Bullock had a groin issue. Over the next few days the groin issue will continue linger and as a result he will "tweak" something requiring a trip to the IR for the year. As a result I think Graham will win the job.

    Probably Bullock, but its pretty close. Bullock's youth is what gives him the edge. With Bullock, providing everything goes according to plan, we have our kicker for the next 10-15 years.

    Hartmann should return to handle KO duty, so I am not stressing about that either.

    Graham .... Too much riding on this season to go with a rookie kicker and so far , Graham has performed better.

    Anyone know the ranges for both kickers?

    Also, anyone recall the playoff game where Graham missed two field goals? Did he choke?

    I'm a little unsure about Bullock's 50+ range.

    Kubiak just mentioned in his press conference that Bullock went to IR with a groin injury. Graham got the job.

    He said he logged into TexansTalk, read the kicker poll above, and went with the winner.
