    I can't wait for this thread to hit 100 pages. Are we bringing him in on a private jet? All sarcasm aside, I would welcome this signing

    I would rather get a amazing kicker. I like the idea of bringing in Shane, but I think it sends a bad message. I think we have a good punter. I would rather have seven points or even three then none at all.

    Actually if you look at the stats. Donnie Jones had a better year than Shane. Inside 20: 31% vs 26%. Net yardage was close, 40.5% vs 39%, in favor of Jones.

    Hope he doesn't outkick the coverage. The Texans were SLOW on special teams last year.

    I don't know. We finished 7th in scoring. As a team, we were 4th in rushing TDs, 15th in passing TDs.......

    :kitten:


    I'm just saying, someone had to be scoring all those points.

    The texans currently have no punter under contract. They were going to add some a punter at somepoint in theoff-season. Getting one of the better ones in history is not reflective of anything deeper than filling a need with the best player a tean can.
