Just thinking it would be interesting to find out who the message boards's favourite Texans are.

I propose everyone votes for the top 5 favourite Texans. Let's make it a weighted vote. 5pts for your favourite, 4pts for your next favourite etc....

I'll tabulate the results after plenty of people have had a chance to vote.

I'm not asking for the best 5 players, the ones that you care about the most and love to talk about and support.

Here are mine:
5pts - Chester Pitts
4pts - Frank Okam
3pts - Vonta Leach
2pts - Glover Quin
1pt - Mario Williams

5 - Mario (not because he is so great but because of the Asswipes who boo'd the pick)

4 - Vonta Leach (Have always liked a FB who knocks people heads off)

3 - Dressen (I have always liked the TE position and how it can be used so I went with the under dog)

2 - Duane Brown (another pick that was treated like crap)

1 - Molden - I actually think he has game

Sideline

5 - WR Kevin Walter - Great Receiver, has really had to work to get where he is today and very underrated around the league still I believe, needs to work on the celebrations.

4 - DE Mario Williams - Monster...enough said.

3 - WR Andre Johnson - Awesome...enough said.

2 - QB Matt Schaub - Got to show the love for our boy, I think he has had a rough ride with the injuries so far but really has the ability if healthy to be one of the very best in this league I am sure of it.

1 - TE James Casey - Really intrested to see what this guy can do, I love players who are just bonafide pure athletes and that is what Casey is playing every position possible as well as pro baseball. Really hope he sticks on the roster.

5 - Andre Johnson - quiet, smart, tough, lots of heart, cool, and best f'ing receiver in the game
4 - Eric Winston - funny, smart, caveman, seems like you could have a beer with him
3 - Owen Daniels - seems like a good guy, not a bad tight end, and he's at ota's
2 - Mario Williams - he's kept cool through a lot of b.s., and i love what he does to qb's
1 - Duane Brown - i just like this guy, seems like a truly cool guy

The question didn't specify players. Players come and go, sometimes very quickly, and in the end, you are left rooting for the organization and/or some sort of civic pride. Well, I live in Austin and would never voluntarily live in Houston (though I enjoy visiting 8 times per year).

The fact that the board members have left Dunta off their lists completely, pretty well highlights my point.

Andre Johnson - has been since drafted.
Mario Williams - The guy I knew without a doubt we would draft once Carr was given the idiotic extension.
Owen Daniels - imo, a top 3 TE in the league.
DeMeco - He runs the show on D
Kevin Walter - underrated around the league, very legit #2.


Slaton and Cushing get honorable mentions. Slaton was a beast last year and with help will stay that way. I expect big things from Cush.


*up until recently, Dunta was easily top 3 for me.

I still like Dunta, but, yeah, he would have been in my top five before.

5 - Mario Williams - I am a defensive guy and he is our monster on that side of the ball. Plus I got in many many heated battles defending this pick over the first couple of years.

4 - Andre Johnson - Clearly one of the best players in the league and maybe the hardest worker on the team.

3 - Eric Winston - Very well spoken, plays nasty, and will be one of the leaders on the O-line for years to come.

2 - Demeco Ryans - One of the most respected players on our team

1 - Brian Cushing - Has the potential to move up this list. Stay Healthy mayne!

5 - Super Mario: Could be Reggie White resurrected if Barwin and Smith are as advertised and Okoye plays at the level he was drafted. Was under more scrutiny than any draft pick this era yet still rose above it and is currently playing to the level he was drafted unlike the players we were "supposed" to draft.

4 - Andre Johnson: Our quiet leader has always been reliable and we can always count on him to make a play when we need it if we just trust in him and let him do it. See: 4th and 10 the Rainmaker's impossible catch

3 - DeMeco Ryans: The leader of the defense who refuses to leave the field even when injured and leaves everything on the field. DeMeco is a true winner on and off the field and if we could have 53 DeMecos on the roster we would win the Super Bowl every year.

2 - Kris Brown: Mr. Automatic can always be depended on to make the game winning FG. The most consistent player in franchise history. See: 3 FGs of 54 yards or more against Miami in 07!!!

1 - Chester Pitts: After all that he's been through with the Texans I would love to see him finally make a pro bowl. He's a much better player than the legacy of the old Texans OLs and should be rewarded as such. The guy is an iron man who has played his heart out for us every step of the way since this organization's inception wherever we asked him to play on the OL.

Making that list made me realize that we are fortunate to have a lot of classy individuals on the team worth rooting for, I hope the NFL's "good guys" get rewarded this season with our first winning season and a trip to the playoffs.

I certainly wouldn't mind a Lombardi trophy either.... :)

1. = Mario ... responded to a bad situation ( VY) in a great way .
2, = Andre ... stud player who rarely complains even though he was held back by his team .
3. = Demeco ... a steady pro who is emerging as the leader on defense .
4. = Winston ... a smart funny guy who is becoming one of the better RT in the league .
5. = Walter/Molden ... Walter is the little train that could and Molden is a guy who has overcome alot ( fiance died of cancer at 21 ) plus he was a special teams demon before he got hurt .

Honorable mention .

Slaton , Brown , Cushing , Caldwell , Barwin , Dunta , Leach , and K Brown .

It was really hard for me not to put Mario, Andre, KW, and Demeco on the list. And if it comes down to guys I'm really pulling for to do great things for us, I'd put Okam, Caldwell, Barwin, Smith, Quin and... well.. heck... every one else. :)

3 Dunta Robinson (One of my favorite players since hit #1)
2 Eric Winston (Good follow on Twitter. Hard not to like this guy)
1 Steve Slaton (If he can have another year or 2 like last year he will rise)

Edit: For some reason its funny to me that 4/5 last names end with "on"

Isn't this a good thing to finally have a hard time picking your 5 favorite Texans? Just 4 years ago you may not have been able to completely fill out the list because there weren't enough players to like. Now, it's just the opposite, there are too many! Good problem to have.

DeMeco Ryans - I liked him before but BIG admiration pts for coming back to work in the middle of this contract thing
Andre Johnson - what's not to like?
Chester Pitts/Ephraim Salaam - they got us some really good pub in those S/B ads. They're both funny as heck.
Vonta Leach - Love his temperment. We need more like him.
Alex Gibbs - I'm afraid to NOT have him on my list :)
Alley Oop (Eric Winston) - Gotta like a guy with his own comic strip :)

Interesting thread idea! Here are mine:

Dunta used to be my favorite. I've always loved the nastiness and hardnosed attitude he brought. :(

5 pts - Mario Williams - for all the crap he had to put up with and how he handled it without every talking back or saying "I told you so." The guy's a class act. I hope we can keep him when his contract is up.

4 pts - Andre Johnson - the best at his position, yet has none of the baggage that usually comes along with great receivers. He's a team guy, not a me guy.

3 pts - DeMeco Ryans - he's a leader, and you'd have to shoot him to get him out of a game. He's a throwback to the old school guys. Not happy with his contract, but still showing up for non-mandatory workouts.

2 pts - Eric Winston - he's funny, candid, and accessible. He's got a bit of a mean streak, and he's a good quote.

1 pt - Matt Schaub - doesn't get enough credit for his leadership skills, showed that he can lead a team down the field late in games in pressure situations, and most of all - SOMEHOW handled the "we want Sage" debacle(s) with class. I would have been telling the fans to eff off.

Close - Adibi, Slaton, Leach, Walter, etc. Hell, I like every Texan.
