LT Duane Brown deserves Pro Bowl berth
Texans left tackle Duane Brown is having a second consecutive outstanding season.
He played well enough last season to make the Pro Bowl but was left off the team. This season, Brown has been a man on a mission: make the Pro Bowl for the first time and win his first Super Bowl ring.
Brown (6-4, 320) signed a contract extension in preseason and has continued his exceptional performance. Heís allowed one sack this season and three over the last two seasons. He hasnít been called for holding since 2009.
Brown has excellent feet. He moves them quickly and stays balanced. Defensive ends have a difficult time fooling him. Heís got a wide base and anchors well. He knows how to use his hands to counter moves by pass rushers, and heís superb at redirecting them.
Brown has gotten stronger through the years, and he packs an initial punch that can stone his man. His coaches say not only is he a terrific pass protector, but Brown does a splendid job of run blocking.
He gets off the ball fast. He can get to the second level in a hurry. He pulls well when asked to. In short, Brown has become a premier left tackle who deserves to make the Pro Bowl for the first time.
Hey O'Brien: "How do you tell a guy who is used to catching 80 balls a year that he was going to catch 40?"... You jackass.
