Jerome mathis got some respect on NFL.com. The sports commentators said they beleive he should be the return man for the AFC in the pro bowl.

Although he's left out of the pro bowl ballot, hopefully the coaches will vote him in.

That would be sweet! :thumbup

Hope to see him run another one back this Sunday! :texflag:

I get the feeling you might see him get 6-7 returns...they aren't going to be punts either.

If he's gonna get a TD, this would be a good week. Arizona is last in stopping the kick returner, allowing 30 yards a kickoff return, and last in allowing TD's, the only team to allow more than 1 (they've given up 3 special teams TDs)

Actually:


Arizona’s kickoff coverage unit is the worst in the league, allowing opponents 30.2 yards per return, while they allow 8.1 yards per punt return (17th). In total, the unit has allowed seven returns for touchdowns this season

Lets go Mathis!!

I hope he takes it back to the one, but doesn't score...then I want us to go 4 and out failing to score! That would fit into the plan...

rmartin65

No way he can take it to the one and not score, no one can catch him from behind, and if they come at an angle he'll fall in.

once he gets a opening in the coverage the boy is gone i have never seen a kick returner leave people like him.

It would be cool to have him in the pro bowl. At least we would win the fastest man competition this year, unlike last year when we came in second :(

Mathis would SMOKE people, but AJ and CJ surprised me last year, I didnt think either was THAT fast. Mathis will get to prove he is the fastest man if he is voted in by the coaches.

So now it's just a question of time before the paranoid Houstonians start talking about how the NFL's hatred of Houston will stop Mathis from going to the pro-bowl ? :)

I'll start, the NFL hates the Houston franchise and that will prevent Mathis from going to the pro bowl.

Lets hope he doesnt run backwards again, and get tackled on the 5 yard line.

Other than that, he is a great kick returner.

Looks like Dante Hall got the pro-bowl nod at KR duties: http://www.nfl.com/probowl/balloting_final

What a load of manuer. Hall didn't put up those #s. This is a popularity contest not a production thing. The NFL hates us. Just watch, Peek is going to get a roughing the passer penalty while Payne gets a holding penalty. Meanwhile, Carr is going to be hit in the head with a forearm while getting sacked because he was waiting for the WR to get open but couldn't because Mathis was hugging AJ and the refs are going to act as if nothing happened.

Oh and by the way they won't be showing the game in Austin because of the NFL's hatred of us.

Hall has done nothing this year...Mathis should go instead. One of the bright spots for you Texan fans.

It took me this long to find out because I was watching the stupid ESPN Pro Bowl show instead of just looking it up on NFL.com.

Casserly is a 4th round genius, lol!

Casserly has been pretty good at pulling good talent out late in the draft the problem with his selections are they are either bang or bust. He gets killed in the 2nd and 3rd rounds

Awesome. A co-worker of mine had me upset that the Texans would not be represented in the pro-bowl. I was happy when ESPN 790 AM said otherwise. It sucks that the season went the way it did. I think D-Rob, AJ, and maybe even DD would have made it. But that's wishful thinking. Maybe next year.

Congrats to Mathis. Go out there and represent!!!

Congrats to Mathis. This kid has special talent. He has had a great rookie year, and lets hope he has many more great years to come returning kicks. I'd like to see him more involved in the offense, running long fades down the feild or running reveres, I think he could be a game breaker.

I wonder if he is going to participate in the annul skills challenge by running the 40. I bet he could burn some people running his 4.2 40.

I remember B-4 the season started, Dunta & Peek were being interviewed on 610 in the am. When asked by Lance if any 1 player has stood out?, they both couldn't answer soon enough actually saying Mathis' name in unison. Needless to say I was excited to see the kid. Didn't even think of a Pro-Bowl invite.

And he will absolutely crush in the fastest man competition. The other players will probably sabotage his shoes by tying them together or something.

i believe they actually run a 100 m sprint.

mathis competed for the US olympic team in the 200m before being injured. I am extremly excited to see him run against competion. He said he would prove to anyone that he was faster, so now lets see if this kid has the ability to prove it.

No clue, but it will likely only be guys from the DB's and WR's corps.

Probally, but i've always wanted to see a LB spear one of them. Just imagine a MLB running across the field and spearing the slowest man, kind of like a weakest link solution.

Just heard that Mathis is going to Honolulu. Congratulations on the Pro Bowl selection!

This is a great little triumph for him and the Texans.
