Who is your favorite on this team? I guess you could also list former players on Texans. Focus on competitiveness rather than skills or position. This is tough for me as Andre Johnson, DROB (who got me to thinking on this) & Demeco come to mind. What about Zach Diles coming from the 7th round to possible starter after one season? Mark Breuner who continues to make team? Your thoughts?

Andre Johnson is the man, and Dunta Robinson is a baller plain and simple.

DeMeco Ryans, Mario Williams and Amobi Okoye are the next generation of great Texans.

DeMeco. I love how excited he gets after he makes a great play.

Fred Bennett and Dunta Robinson.

Those guys wear their hearts on their sleeves.

Yes they do and I forgot about Bennett, he's a very fiery competitor too.:fans:

I like Schaub's attitude as well, when he first got here he said...

'Anyone ready to go outside so I can make you look bad?'

I love that attitude.

He may not be my favorite player or a very popular player, but he brings his dadgum lunch pail to work on gameday.

Vonta Leach....he had a few awesome games this year and he probably would've stood out a bit more if it weren't for Fatty at RB. I just hope we continue to utilize the FB this season.

Owen Daniels....he would've been my number one if it weren't for the fumbles. IMO, he's still one of the best at the position and a true workhorse.

Kevin Walter.....the dudes a competitor through and through.

If we can go back in time, then my vote is for Jamie Sharper. That dude was a monster in the middle. In his nine year NFL career, Sharper didn't miss a single game until his final season. 164 tackles in 2003 - that's gettin after it.

164... man, that's just a ridiculous number. I always liked him and K. Wong.

As for the current roster, Mario is my guy. I just love how he's overcome all the BS with Reggie Metcalf and VY, and is now about to become an elite NFL talent... yet not ONCE has he said 'I told you so' or expressed any sort of disdain for the fans and observers who dogged him.

2008 - 19 sacks. Go Mario.

Gotta go with the hometown guy

Tim Bulman's my guy...

Anthony Weaver has a pub in Boston according to my aunt that lives there but the guy hasn't produced and is sucking money out of the FO's checkbook.

LOL, yeah...he was ok with us back in 2006.

Didn't we have a player ot two on defense make the pro bowl in our first season? I thought Gary Walker was one?

Gary Walker and Aaron Glenn.

just see the quote in my sig. there you'll find your answer.

Gary Walker and Aaron Glenn.I thought Glenn was the second one but not certain. Thanks. I guess both of those should be listed as good competitors.

As far as competitors go, I think Jacoby Jones has the fire and his on field production will reflect it.

What about Will Demps playing with a cast on a broken arm? He still won pro bowl alternate.

Good call. Now if we can just get him to hang on to the ball, he should have about 5 more interceptions.

He had a brace on a dislocated elbow. Hopefully it comes off this year and he will have full extension to make some of those INT catches he should have had last year.

I surely hope so. He's not the fastest dude, but he was able to get to the ball more often than not.

Obviously from my name, Andre Johnson.


But I have always appreciated the play of Glenn Earl. He never really became much, but I thought he was good.

Chester Pitts has played every game in the history of the franchise and almost every single offensive play.

Have to agree on Pitts, one of the good guys, and here from a rookie and holding his own on what at times has been a dodgy line.

Got to give it up for Leach too, a guy who loves the contact and does the dirty work.

don't have a favorite (too many) but another worth mentioning is Eric Winston. Not sure if he will be our franchise RT for the next 8 years or whatever, but for a big guy he plays with passion, is athletic, works hard, plays injured, very skilled just a great all around Hurricane :wesmantexanfan:

Anthony Maddox still can't get over a fat man returning a touchdown against the browns in 2006 ;)
