That's great for AJ and Watt, but in all honesty Brown and Joseph don't deserve to be even mentioned for the Pro Bowl this year.

Brown & Joseph had down years, but I don't see it as a stretch being alternates. Chris Myers on the other hand...

One of the best Centers in the league? PFF puts him on their list and his ratings over the year support it.

Brown is another player whom this coaching staff has mishandled with injuries.

Can't really blame him when he was rushed through, especially considering their excuse for using Newton over Harris at RT was that they wanted injury cover for the LT position from their swing tackle.

You also can't discount that we've been letting developed TEs walk for several years now and the LG position has been in decline fly 2 or 3 years next to him.

All in all, I'd say it wasn't a recipe for success but the silver lining, if we accept those points, is that by putting better players around him and handling any injuries to him correctly in future we can hope that he's back to his best next season.

Our offensive and defensive stalwarts get recognized again. They deserve it.

Congratulations AJ and JJ for being what this team needs at every other position.

True professionals ...

Default Re: AJ and WATT Named to Pro Bowl

AJ, Watt, Myers, Lechler all deserving. Nobody else should be on that squad.

Best rookie: DeAndre Hopkins. With the league's 2nd lowest WR drop rate behind Larry Fitzgerald, Nuk was clearly our best rookie. Better QB play will show us what else he can do.

Most improved: Brandon Brooks. Brooks will end 2013 top 5 in run blocking by Guards. He needs to focus on his pass blocking now, to get Pro Bowl mentions.

Nobody will put him there, but JJ Watt should be in the mix for DPOY again. His 2012 season shattered all PFF records as the first player at any position to garner a cumulative season overall rating of over 100 (+101.6). JJ is at +103 this season with one game to play. The next highest graded player in his position group is 63% lower. Outstanding effort, again.

The Pro Bowl tends to favor those players the media mentions over and over again and leaves out players who truly broke out and made an impact at their position (e.g. Jurrell Casey, Oliver Vernon, Evan Mathis ~ Gets overlooked every year despite being the best OG in the NFL IMO). I'm more interested in seeing what the All-Pro team selection looks like.

All the more reason for good/great players to stay far away from the TEXANS.

Even some supposed fans can't recognize the talent of these two individuals. Downplaying their skills and dedication because they happen to play for a dysfunctional organization. It's not their fault they were drafted here. Both are doing their best in a team game to help that team win.

How sad that JJ is stuck for at least the next two years. Even sadder is how AJ has wasted his career. Yes he has made money but would he not have made money playing for a winner?

Think of the extra money he'd have made playing for a decent team in a decent market. He would have been a shoe-in for the Hall of Fame. As of now, he should still make it, but some doubt remains.

Houston, where even the best players are dragged under as the ship sinks.

Yup, if I was a player, Houston would be my choice to spend my short NFL career. (NOT)

At least a good/great player gets paid millions. (wait, hmmm: wouldn't it be much better to make millions on a winning team?)
