I can play a lot better, Robinson said. I did some good things, but if you want to be great, at the end of the season you have to evaluate yourself and say there are things you can do better. Thats the way I feel. There are some things that I can do better, and it starts in the off-season.

no kiddin... This IMO is Casserly's best pick in any round. Personally, I was like WHO?? when they made the pick.. and he has done nothing but prove to me that he was worth being picked even higher than the #10 spot we got him at.

I like D-Robs no-BS style and self criticism.

I remember when he was drafted, I was clueless. I had to call a buddy to get some info on him. Now he is like my favorite player. Totally killer pick on Casserly's part.

Nice read. I hope this rubs off on some of the other players.

I really like the way he plays so much bigger that his size. He has laid some people out with the way he hits, he is got great athletecism. Not only did he begin to display leadership on the field during games in only his 2nd year, the way he carries himself and dedicates himself to getting better is exactly what this team needs. We need a couple dozen more with the same attitude. I really appreciate some that leads by example. Fanatastic draft pick!

I think ur reffering to the Bruce TD? The one where he was playing a short zone and the safety was responsible for the deep ball? Despite the fact he was playing the short zone, he almost got back and tipped the ball, coming about an inch short..

Wait, wasn't that a Capers pick? Or are all good picks Casserly's and all bad picks Capers?:challenge

Drob is from USC so it may have been McNair's pick :)

Yah Dunta is the man. If he ever leaves this team im gonna get mad at whoever let it happen.

d-Rob is awesome. It was an overall bad season for everyone. It's amazing that Mathis was able to make the Pro-Bowl thru this horrendous season. I do look forward to D-Rob being in the Pro-Bowl as a Texan in the future.

D-Rob is going to be a leader of not only the defense but the entire Texans team for years to come.

A. Glenn did got out of his way to take Dunta under his wing and I think we have Glenn to thank for alot of the professionalism and views that Dunta has. In my opinion letting Glenn go was a big mistake. I do think that Dunta will turn into Glenn. Glenn was always the one to step up and give the lockeroom speech and I can see Dunta stepping into that role.

Man, I hope you are wrong there. Leader of defense is fine but if a CB is the leader of our whole team that is pretty sad and it tells me no one else has stood up. BTW, you want your leaders on the field. As good as Dunta is, he is helpless when we are on offense. Having a leader at the QB position would be nice however that may not happen anytime soon.

nothing wrong with a CB leading the team I think. At least in a "cheerleader" kind of way. Obviously he isnt gonna be calling the plays on defense, but that doesnt mean he cant fire people up and keep everyone focused.

Probably win the Rams game.:)

yeah, because we all know blaming one man for a loss in a team sport is the right thing to do.... :hmmm:

I think D.Rob will be one of our defensive superstars over time. His attitude, talent, and work ethic will make him a force to be reckoned with in years to come. We just need the rest of the defense to be effective to make him successful.

Anyone know who USC's QB is?? Left tackle?? linebacker?? Since Dunta's our superstar why not build our team with Gamecocks instead of all these longhorns I keep hearing about.

Where does this come from, that a QB has to be the de facto leader of your entire team, and if he's not your team isn't getting it done?

Oh, that's right. From that Vince Young poster you got hanging in your room.

A leader can be anyone the players look to and respect. Try telling the Ravens that Ray Lewis is not a leader, wasn't a leader when they won their Super Bowl. Remember the Bucs? Brad Johnson was da MAN.

Ok, I am done being facetious now.
