Default Brian Crushing - 2011 Texans MVP, JJ Watt - 2011 Texans ROY

Nick Scurfield @NickScurfield

Cushing named 2011 #Texans MVP

http://www.houstontexans.com/news/ar...f-089c8f4860b4

Inside linebacker Brian Cushing has been voted the Texans’ 2011 Most Valuable Player by a vote of his teammates.

Cushing, who was named an alternate for the Pro Bowl, led Houston’s No. 2-ranked defense with 114 tackles. He had almost as many solo tackles (76) as Texans strong safety Glover Quin, who finished second on the team in tackles, had overall (77). Cushing also had 4.0 sacks, 4.5 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles, two interceptions and five passes defensed.

With Cushing leading the way in Wade Phillips’ 3-4 defense, the Texans allowed only 285.7 yards per game after giving up 376.9 in 2010. That 91.2-yard average improvement was the best in the NFL this season and third-best since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger. The Texans’ defense improved by 9.3 points per game, from 26.7 to 17.4, also the best turnaround in the league.

Defensive end J.J. Watt was selected as the Texans’ Rookie of the Year. The 11th overall pick from Wisconsin, Watt started every game and had 56 tackles, including 49 solo. He had 5.5 sacks, a team-high 7.5 tackles for loss, two fumble recoveries and four passes defensed.

Inside linebacker DeMeco Ryans won the Texans’ Ed Block Courage Award. A defensive captain, Ryans came back from a 2010 season-ending Achilles injury to start all 16 games. He finished third on the team with 64 tackles. The Ed Block Award recognizes players for extra efforts on and off the field and their ability to overcome great adversity. Past Texans winners include tight end Joel Dreessen (2010), linebacker Zac Diles (2009) and wide receiver Harry Williams (2008).

Ryans also won the Texans’ Mark Bruener Award for Community Service.

Can't argue with this selection nor Watt as Rookie of the Year. Both were no brainers.

Here's hoping Cushing makes everyone we face pay for that pro bowl snub.

Congrats to Cush and to Watt.

Cushing, my man, you certainly won this fan base back after the whole PED situation.

Cushing is like Bill Romanowski reincarnated (although Romo's not dead yet, lol).

- He's a bad mofo.
- He's a borderline psycho.
- Most of the league probably hates him, and calls him a cheater.
- Texans fans freakin love him, even if they would probably hate him if he was on another team.

We shall now award the beast by sacrificing a baby Bengal to him for his feast. The beast will award us with his performance Saturday. He will then proceed to devour many adult Bengals and referees in hisway.

Gross comparison.

Cushing isn't dirty at all. He resembles something out of the 70s way before he resembles a piece of shit like Romo.
