OLB Antwan Peek has seen limited time (75 plays), but has proven to be effective when given the chance. The Texans exciting playmaker recorded his second sack of the season on a crucial Titans 3rd and 10 conversion attempt last week (11/28/04). Peek knocked the ball loose from McNair's hands while fellow LB Kailee Wong scooped up the forced fumble to give Houston's offense possession at their own 19.
Peek recorded his first career interception against Indianapolis (11/14/04) in the fourth quarter. The week before, Peek blocked a punt by the Denver punter Micah Knorr, which was converted into a Houston touchdown. In two plays at LB against Denver, Peek contributed with one tackle for loss. He posted three tackles, including two QB pressures and a 10-yard sack at Kansas City in only 15 snaps. Out of 75 plays, peek has made 15 big plays (20 percent).
This is straight out of the game notes this week. I think this sums up my argument for getting peek some playing time. I find it interesting that for two weeks in a row something very similar has been posted on the texans own web page about how Peek has performed so high with little chances. The guy is a play maker yet he isnt on the field. 20% of the time he is on the field he makes a big play. Thats 1 out of 5. Chances are if he was allowed to play more he would produce more, and maybe this debate wouldnt go on every week.
