Houston Texans Secondary Receiving Numbers Not So Elite

In a follow up to an article we posted regarding Coach Kubiak’s statement of the Texans’ Jacoby Jones & Kevin Walters, the best #2 wide receiver in the game.

Brien Straw over at CBS Houston ran the numbers of all non-primary wide receivers on all 32 teams in order to test Coach Kub’s claim. Now keep in mind the numbers ran did not include the tight end or running back receptions for each team.

TEXANS – Kevin Walter / Jacoby Jones = 102 / 1183 [WR’s + Casey = 121 / 1398]
CARDINALS – 136 / 1581
FALCONS – 103 / 1151
RAVENS –  95 / 1366
BILLS – 131 / 1655
BEARS – 105 / 1300
CAROLINA 113 / 1118
BENGALS – 149 / 2099
BROWNS – 111 / 1822

COWBOYS – 100 / 1251
BRONCOS – 162 / 1982
LIONS – 121 / 1243
PACKERS – 181 / 2232
COLTS – 175 / 1907

JAGUARS – 73 / 1023
CHIEFS – 75 / 753
DOLPHINS – 137 / 1675
VIKINGS – 68 / 699
PATRIOTS – 91 / 1404
SAINTS – 152 / 1956
GIANTS – 140 / 1791
JETS – 98 / 1230
RAIDERS – 83 / 1116
EAGLES – 118 / 1879
STEELERS – 125 / 1551
CHARGERS – 118 / 1754

49ers – 71 / 994
SEAHAWKS – 147 / 1847
RAMS – 136 / 1785
BUCCANEERS – 61 / 748
TITANS – 118 / 1674
REDSKINS – 71 / 1210

Teams in bold represent teams that were higher than the Texans but a team like the Tennessee Titans likely were ahead of the Houston Texans due to their primary receiver Kenny Britt being injured for a good chunk of the season and their receiving numbers after that are likely all secondary receivers.

Although we would love to believe in Coach Kubiak’s assesment of the teams second wide receiving option it’s hard to argue with the statistics.
