Default Pro Bowl Players

I think the Texans have more players that have a chance to make it to the Pro Bowl this year than in the past...maybe not as starters but at least make it. Who could go?

Walker & Glenn--they have been there and IMO they are not too old to go again.
Sharper
Payne
Stanley--outside chance if he keeps pegging them inside the 20
AJ--400 more yards and he would be the 4th most productive wr last year--longshot but not impossible.

Not going to make it IMO:
Carr--expect a lot of improvement but don't see him beating out Manning, McNair or Brady.
DD--If Tomlinson can rush for 1645 yards and catch 100 passes for another 725 yards and not make it, DD has a huge up hill battle.

Yeah...I agree with what you said. Carr is good, but he isn't great, and there are some great quarterbacks, like you said, that he'd have to beat out. I don't think AJ is a long shot but it'll be tough for him to go.

For a little more perspective on the odds for AJ and DD:

There are 4 WR slots and 3 RB slots.

Last year AJ was the 6th most productive WR in the AFC--200 more yards would have put him into 4th (that really does look achievable), 300 more into 3rd and 400 more into 1st. The pro-bowl WR's appear to have been selected purely on yardage.

DD was the 11th most productive RB in the AFC--to break into the top 3 DD would have needed another 561 yards. The RB's selected were the 1st, 3rd and 5th on yardage. Holmes at 5 did set a new record for TD's. Taylor at 4th on yardage had two less TD's than DD. Still don't understand how Portis had less rushing yardage, less than half the receiving yards, only one more TD and still beat Tomlinson other than play-off team vs. horrible team. Anyway, even 2000 combined yards won't guarantee DD a pro-bowl berth.

IMO the afc is loaded with great runningbacks...Davis would have to have just a fantastic season in order to get voted in...recievers are another thing...i could see andre going...with manning and mcnair it'll be hard for carr to get a chance...glenn, walker, sharper, and maybe coleman if he's moved to FS...if he puts up another 7 int season as a FS i would say he's earned a spot on the pro bowl...and i don't want to see our punter going to the pro bowl...that'll mean we're punting too much

Like this means anything? You folks are just nutty. You've got the worst freaking team in the league (OK, maybe that's overstatement) and you're here today, after a miserable performance at home, talking about the Pro Bowl? Why don't we send Senor Cheerios? And someone actually thinks Carr's name should be brought up in a thread about the Pro Bowl? Lemme tell you, Carr's about the 20th best QB in the league, so he has a ways to go.

Andre Johnson is the only player with a good shot at a pro bowl bid.
