The Texans' kicking competition between Kris Brown and Neil Rackers began today in front of the team. Brown: 5-of-6. Rackers: 6-of-6— Nick Scurfield (@NickScurfield) August 3, 2010
Per Scurfield: The Texans’ kicking competition between Kris Brown and Neil Rackers began today in front of the team. Brown: 5-of-6. Rackers: 6-of-6. Brown’s miss was close, hooked just left and maybe a bit short from 43 yards. Texans coach Gary Kubiak was impressed w/ both kickers today. I figured this deserved its own discussion area until a new open thread is created as it is a topic of much concern. UPDATE: Here is some more from Scurfield: Kickers Kris Brown and Neil Rackers began competing in front of the entire team for the first time in training camp. They took turns kicking two field goals from 27 yards, 37 yards and 43 yards. Brown was 5-of-6, while Rackers went 6-of-6. Brown’s lone miss came on his second 43-yard attempt, which he hooked just left, but both kickers hit the ball solidly on each kick. I'll have plenty more to write about about this soon.
