My favorite part of the piece...

"In fact, no rookie in the last 20 years had more tackles than Ryans, who was an All-American at Alabama in 2005. And Ryans had more tackles than any of the other five linebackers who won the award this decade, including Brian Urlacher and Shawne Merriman."

Meco and Mario are going to terrorize the QBs. I can't wait.:shades:

I was scared Mark Anderson or Kamerion Wimbley would have gotten the award, as its the luck of the Texans.

HoustonTexans.com store is the only place on-line that I've be able to find it but then I'm not in Houston so you might want to try Acadmey Sporting goods. The Texans.com store just started selling them because I've been looking since the draft even e-mail them to ask them to get Mecos Jersey.

I hope I'm wrong and I hope they give DeMeco and the Texans organization
credit for this pick while 31 other teams passed on him atleast once, but don't be surprised if ESPN discounts DeMeco's award by saying all the talent in this Draft was on the other side of the ball.

Anyone who voted for Mario Williams over Ryans wasn't watching the games.

ESPIN will probably say his tackle total was due to our being so bad. Somewhat true, but hardly the total deal.

way to go demeco! this was well deserved even though you were snubbed for the pro bowl because you were a ROOKIE. Here's to many more great years in a Texans uniform and the Texans having a top 5 rated defense next year.

Go Texans!

Man, next year is going to be a great year. :yahoo: :dance3: :francis: :highfive:

Will the tandem of Ryans/Williams become as dominant as Bennett/Smith or Thomas/Smith? If they do and the signs are definitely there, this team will rack up the wins with defense and conservative offense. Guess what folks, that the direction this team is headed. Kubiak said as much the other day. He said he's an offense minded coach but he's learning to coach a team to it's strengths. He seems to be implying we can win ugly at a high level. We'll see. Didn't Bennett/Smith have a guy named Kelly on offense under center. And a decent RB. And decent wides.

They can say whatever they want - we know he got those tackles in the middle.......and the backfield.............and the secondary........and the flats. The man was everywhere.

Whoever said it before - I can't find a DeMeco jersey anywhere! Academy needs to get rid of those #37 and #8 jerseys!

I'm waiting on some of my Cowgirls friends to use that excuse to downplay DeMecos achievement.

I'm ready to point out to them that we surrendered around 3 less points per game over the last 13 games of the season than did the Crybabies... and that we only gave up 16 more points than they did for the entire year.

At PackerForums, they think that AJ Hawk should have gotten the award. The excuse that "Houston's defense was always on the field," was played in with them.

that's been the subject of debate 'round these parts...you think VY would've done what he did in Houston? Not doubting you, just a question.

Regardless, I'll say it again: I am proud DeMeco Ryans is a Texan...we need more like him...

and a question for everyone. If we had taken Ryans as first round draft pick would we still be as heavily criticised for not taking Bush or Young?

Yes. Critics don't compare him to any one but Mario.
Let's put it like this.... Sportscenter annouced selections last night. They said "Offensive Rookie of the Year....In a landslide....Vince Young". "Defenseive ROY, Demeco Ryans."

I'd say 36 0f 50 votes constitutes a landside victory too, wouldn't you all?

01-04-2007, 03:38 PM
Congrats Demeco! It's nice to have a trio to build on in each area. M.Williams on the D-Line then Meco in the Linebackers and Daunte in the secondary.

Indeed. Congrats Meeks!

Congrats D.R. I was suprise as many when he was not a 1st round pick.. O well, good for us. I really wanted to see how he did this year, especially when he sed in a interview b4 the season that he did not think the game was that much faster that he thought.. He was definately the best draft pick in team history.

Farough
01-07-2007, 07:02 PM
I think that every rookie that we draft should have the initials D. R. since they seem to have the most success with us.
