    Wondering what you guys think of him.

    I know that some think he cost them t playoff game vs the Ravens but now that the Ravens signed him, what does he bring to the table. I know he got behind Ed Reed on the one TD in the early season matchup

    A guy with great straight line speed that can run a great post route but that's about it. He doesn't know how to make sharp cuts on his routes so separation from defenders is an issue. He also shy's away from contact and doesn't like taking hits. He blocks reasonably well for the run game. You can expect a highlight reel catch to be followed up by 3-4 bonehead plays and other games where he just disappears entirely. He's a track guy playing football.

    My guess is he'll have some good moments, but mostly he'll be inconsistent.

    Maybe being cut will help him wake up some though.

    You can expect a lot of potential and very little reality.
    He has had some real highlight catches but for every one of those count on 7 or 8 silly drops when the ball is in his hands.

    Please never ever bring his name to this board again.

    In my opinion, he cost us a ring.

    Mods can this please be moved? Has nothing to do with the Texans.

    You can expect him to scare the crap outa you every time he touches the ball .... The way he flails his arms about while running with the ball is asking for trouble.


    You can expect him to drop easy catches and make boneheaded mistakes.

    Two games against the Ravens come to mind - the OT game year before last he dropped what would have been the winning TD .... and in the playoff game he gave the Ravens a gift TD with that muffed punt.


    He'll also run 50 yards east to west returning punts gaining 3 yards ....


    Im glad he went elsewhere .... You'll wish he was elsewhere at some point during this season. :lol:


    Hope we meet again in the playoffs and he gives back the gift.

    People are correctly identifying problems but being overly harsh IMO. He is a very good open field runner whether it be on punt returns or after a catch. He is a danger to take one all the way at any time. He has problems making catches. He has problems not just accepting he is going to be tackled at times and taking what he can get (applies to both returns and passes) so you will get some stupid looking -3 yard returns and then he will bust one for 50 yards when you thought he was going to be nailed for 3. He is a poor route runner - rounds them off and seems to have issues with depth as in break at 10 v. break at 13 leaving the QB looking like he threw a bad pass. He is an above average run blocker.

    He has all the physical ability to be a star but can't seem to put it together and I know from someone close Andre Johnson has put a lot of effort into trying to get JJ to put it together. Not sure y'all have someone who can be a better mentor than AJ and make it click for JJ.

    The best east/west returner in the land.

    What to expect from JJ? He is streaky and inconsistent. He will make plays that will make you think he has arrived and is the next top receiver or he will make you want to tar and feather him and set him and fire.

    JJ is a role player nothing more. If you end up needing to rely on him you are in trouble.

    I don't know what's worse; his hands or decision making. I fully expect to see him cut...and I use to like him. Just saying.

    He never figured out that the ball is precious.

    I think he's the perfect #3 for you guys. You have Boldin, you have Smith, no one is going to be expecting Jacoby to be your #1 receiver. But he'll do his job, get open, attract attention away from Boldin & Smith, help out your vertical game, & block downfield, helping to spring some big runs.

    I wouldn't be looking to put him on my fantasy team, he's a #3, no more, no less.
