Texans not making a kicking change, yet

Bullock AP

With Texans kicker Randy Bullock becoming so reliably unreliable that NBC had Phil Collins’ I Missed Again ready to go as the bumper music after one of Bullock’s three field-goal misfires on Sunday night, the team still isn’t willing to say bollocks to Bullock.

According to Mark Berman of FOX 26 in Houston, one of the three kickers brought in for a Tuesday Gong Show tryout said that the Texans aren’t yet ready to sign a replacement.

“We all hit the ball really well, but they told us they were not ready to make a move at this point,” Neil Rackers said.

Rackers spent two seasons with the Texans, from 2010 to 2011.  Shayne Graham and Justin Medlock also were included in the tryout.

And so the job stays for now with Bullock, who has missed eight fields on eight games this season.

    I guess they like looking up at everyone in the AFC not named the Jags.

    I have lost all faith in the front office of this team. They waited 2 games too long to make the QB change, now they give Fat Randy another chance to miss more FGs. I do not understand. Cut the guy, sign a vet and move on. Why is Marciano still here? Loyalty is this teams biggest fault. This is a business based on results. If your current players or staff are not producing and have no track record of producing then move on. Special teams has been a joke here for years.

    @texansfan13:
    Yeah, all of that…as a fellow Texans fan I’m afraid I think this thing is broken from the top down. Letting guys like Briesel and Quin go for cap reasons then locking up Schaub and bringing in Ed Reed’s carcass, drafting Sam Montgomery, keeping a kicker who is incompetent that it was foolish to draft in the first place, and on and on…
    I think McNair is too nice for his own good and Smith has him snowed…Kubs is a good guy but its time to blow it up

    Sadly, Rackers would actually help with the tackling on kickoff returns.
