Default Watt, Myers, Keo named mid-season captains

J.J. Watt, Chris Myers, Shiloh Keo named Texans captains

Quote:
The Texans named three new captains on Wednesday at the halfway point of their season.

Players selected defensive end J.J. Watt as a captain on defense, center Chris Myers as a captain on offense and safety Shiloh Keo as a captain on special teams.

“I like doing it at the halfway mark, because your teams are always different,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. “It kind of lets the guys stand up and say, ‘We see what you’re doing. You’re leading us in the right direction; keep doing it,’ and I think they picked three great players there. Had a lot of guys get votes.”

Watt and Keo, both second-year pros, are captains for the first time. Myers, a 2011 Pro Bowler, also was voted a captain last season after eight games.

Watt leads the NFL with 10.5 sacks. The 2011 first-round draft pick from Wisconsin also has a team-high 18 tackles for loss, 21 quarterback hits and 10 passes defensed.

"That’s pretty impressive for a guy to be that young... and for those veterans and everybody in that locker room to vote for him like that,” Kubiak said. “J.J.’s an all-business type of guy. He handles his business so well, and he's all about the game. He's studying all the time, working all the time and all about his team. For a very, very young player, that’s a tremendous compliment"

Keo, a fifth-round pick from Idaho in 2011, has four special teams tackles this season, including two last week against Buffalo.

“He's a real sharp player,” Kubiak said. “You watch him in the meetings, he’s on top of what he’s doing. He’s an effort young man. That’s his big role on our team, playing special teams. Our guys respect his effort, how he plays, how he goes about his business."

Myers, an eighth-year veteran, has started 72 consecutive games for the Texans. Offensive coordinator Rick Dennison said he has become more of a vocal leader this year after the offseason departure of longtime starters Eric Winston and Mike Brisiel, who have been replaced by rookie guard Ben Jones and second-year tackle Derek Newton.

“His experience not just here but around the league has been great for those young guys,” Dennison said. “He’s coached them up as they go and always works with them. He understands that those five have to work as a unit. He’s really the cog.”

The three new captains join five captains who were selected before the season: quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson (offense), inside linebacker Brian Cushing and defensive end Antonio Smith (defense) and inside linebacker Tim Dobbins (special teams).
Interesting seeing Keo get the nod from his teammates. I remember all the nice things said about him before his rookie season, and it looks like his hard work has paid off. He might not be a great safety, but he's always involved in every ST play, and it seems he's a pretty good leader as well.

Default Re: Watt, Myers, Keo named mid-season captains

Keo had a real good play against the bills on a kick off last week. He engaged the blocker to cut off the outside and force the returner to the middle of the field, as soon as the return man cut inside Keo shed the block and made the tackle. Not the kind of thing a lot of fans notice but I guarantee the players and coaches pick up on those types of plays.

Congrats to all 3.

No surprise on Keo here, he was known as a hustle-guy type leader in college and always well respected by his teammates.

Agreed, Kudos to him. I was thinking it was a wasted pick, but this is promising.

I mean other than being the captain of the worst phase of this team that is.

Wish I had the time, and the know how, to pull up all the posts by members of this board either bit*hing about Keo or wanting him GONE! Other than being kinda CUTE, he hasn't impressed me much either! BUT, here we go, now the boys a Captain of a SB, hopefully, bound team! Way to go dude, hope you are worthy of the praise in the coming games!!

Yeah, my initial reaction to hearing Keo getting the vote was... what about Ball? He has made some absolutely amazing plays to down balls deep in people's territory this year. Even though he scares me as a corner, I think he's been a great pickup for ST.

But.

There is a reason why this is left up to the players. Keo has made plays as well and apparently, he's grown into the leadership role.
