Why are we already looking for disappointments? We've added some key pieces to the team & we start with the same record as everyone else. Where's all this negativity coming from? I can't wait for the season to start.

1) I'm especially looking forward to seeing our D'Line perform.

2) I'm looking forward to seeing Mario shut up all the naysayers.

3) I'm looking forward to seeing Mario's 300lbs. crush the Golden One (Bush).

4) I'm looking forward to seeing our O'Line be better than it was last year.

5) I'm looking forward to our running game being improved with the addition of Green & our O'Line settling in for their 2nd year together.

6) I'm looking forward to seeing a healthy Mathis ripping off long, game changing returns.

7) I'm looking forward to our new QB taking his first snaps.

8) I'm looking forward to seeing our WR's put fear into the eyes of our opponent's secondary.

9) I'm looking forward to seeing all the rookies perform, especially the ones that we never knew about, but the coaches & scouts did.

10) Finally, I'm looking forward to seeing all the new cheerleaders.

So, as you can see, I can't vote in your poll, because at this time, I can only see things to be excited about. I'll leave the negativity for a time when it's better warranted.

Amen Hottodie!

None of the above for me. It is July and time to be optimistic. Hopefully, this year there won't be any time for disappointment - but if there is, it won't be in July. July is for anticipation, countdowns to the first game, season ticket arrivals, training camp, getting ready to tailgate and hoping that this will be the year of the Texans in the playoffs. October will come soon enough.

Ya gotta understand something PC. The guys on this board live and breath stats! They take um, toss um around, chew um up, spit um out, and by d*mn, that's the way the cookie crumbles because the STATS don't lie!! J/K guys!! BUt, you have to admit, you all love to toss around stats! By the end of the year Matt Schaub might have worst stats than DC, but, if we pull off a winning season, he will be a hero! Ahman Green might have a 1000+ yd season, BUT, if we don't at least break even, he will be labeled a bust and to old to play the game. Personally, I don't give a rats butt about stats! Whats on the scoreboard at the end of the game is all that matters.

The score is a statistic.

And if you go to just about any board, you're going to find people throwing stats around. It's a way to analyze and understand what went on and hopefully figure out a little bit about what's going to happen in the future.

And, personally, if I have a QB that is playing poorly, I don't care if we're winning or losing, I'm going to want another QB because you shouldn't have your team trying to make up for a bad one. Look at the number of Bears fans wanting to get rid of Grossman. If my QB is playing well and we're losing, I'm going to hope the QB stays and we get the right players to help the team win.

My vote goes to AJ having a disappointing year. The only reason he has a disappointing year is because KW becomes the go to open guy along with OD. Until later in the season when teams start realizing they need to double cover KW and/or OD... then the big AJ is let loose but it will be later in the season so his stats won't be great. BUT the following year he will be NFL's MVP.

IMO, the only player(s) that can possibly have a disappointing season would be Chris Brown and Chad Stanley. Mainly Brown because I believe we'll have a few hard fought games that come down to FG attempts.

No reason necessary for Stanley.

I didn't vote...

I don't want to predict that one of our players has a bad year...especially not any of the players on that list...

I know there are going to be players that don't play up to a standard I think they should be playing at, but as of right now I expect this to be an improved team and in order for that to happen many areas will have to improve...

But if I flipped the question to: Who do I think will have the most improved/best season out of the bunch I'd go with Matt and Dunta...

I think Matt is going to play very well, and I think Dunta is going to push past that wall of being a good corner to becoming a very good corner because of, what I expect to be, an improved pass rush.

I wouldn't put Mario on there because he basically has no where to go but up.

AJ and DeMeco having "off" years would probably actually mean a better team. Andre's catches go down because he actually has help, the same with Ryans' tackles.

Default Re: Most Disappointing Player of the Year is....

I'm going to say Dunta only b/c i think no teams fear him in pass coverage. I also think most of us around here are expecting for him to step his game up from previous years.

He's been solid, but we need him to shut down his side of the field like true number 1's do.

But in regards to your poll, why didn't you put Mario up there? IMO he's got to at least double what he did last year to not be a disappointment.

How come everybody thinks Mario didn't do anything last season.

Has anyone compared his tackle numbers to other defensive ends in the league. I am talking about tackles...not sacks. He had quite a bit of tackles last season for a rookie defensive end.
