Default A couple of questions about the Texans

Hi guys, would appreciate some info on your team (I'm a Redskins fan by the way) as I'm just spending some time this off-season trying to find out about players and teams I seem to not see a lot of.

Anyway:

Who are the Texans ten best players? Rank 'em if you like and I realize that might be a big ask so just the best in your opinions would do, regardless of how many.

CC Brown - is this guy any good and is he the long term future at free safety?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Default Re: A couple of questions about the Texans

1- It's really hard to do this, but i'll try.
1. Andre Johnson (WR)
2. DeMeco Ryans (MLB)
3. Ahman Green (RB)
4. Dunta Robinson (CB)
5. Charles Spencer (LT)
6. Chester Pitts (LG)
7. Mario Williams (DE)
8. Vonta Leach (FB)
9. Jerome Mathis (KR)
10. Anthony Maddox (DT)

2- C.C. Brown is a SS playing FS... he has good speed, but he's a serious liability in coverage. He bites a LOT on play action. A good athlete, but doesn't really play smart.

Welcome to the board

top 10 players

1)Andre Johnson
2)Demeco Ryans
3)Mario Williams
4)D-robinison
5)Jerome Mathis(when healthy)
6)Chester Pitts (best lineman)
7)Ahman Green
8)Charles Spencer(from what little we saw and if he is healthy)
9)Anthony Weaver
10)Eric Winston

wow that was actually tough on the last few (I left out a certain somebody for argumentive sakes even though I think he has talent)


CC brown, i wouldn't say he is long term, is is ok,but we could use an upgrade

Default Re: A couple of questions about the Texans

1.(WR) Andre Johnson (future hall of famer)
2.(MLB) Demeco Ryans (had a great rookie season)
3.(CB) Dunta Robinson (good but needs help)
4.(DE) Mario Williams (hasn't shown up yet)
5.(QB) David Carr (could have been great)
6.(OL) Chester Pitts (most consistent)
7.(HC) Gary Kubiak (does he count)
8.(FB) Vonta Leach (this guy's good)
9.(KR/WR) Jerome Mathis (when healthy)
10.(OL) Steve McKinney (?)

This is my top 10.

I don't think C.C. will start here for much longer.

CC Brown is inconsistent. Sometimes he's great, more often than not, he's average to below average.

Default Re: A couple of questions about the Texans

If anyone is familiar with the group technique called multivoting, this is the perfect application. The top 2 will be clear but there will be quite a bit of variation in 3-10.

Someone just needs to copy/paste each voter's list into excel. Give the #1 player 10 points - give the #10 player 1 point. Tally the results across the board after everyone has cast their ballot.

No, I'm not volunteering to do this.

I became a fan of CC Brown after he knocked the hell out of Ben Utecht in the first Indy game this season. Even knocked his helmet off. The DB's were pretty bad as a unit. I don't think that CC was any more of a liability than anyone else back there.

Washington fan named Gman huh?? Okay.

Anyway. Why the concern about CC??

I like him. I like Earl. I think we need two corners with some coverage skills. I'd rate Faggins over Dunta as a pure Corner... Dunta's a better football player.

Top Ten??

Andre Johnson...
Demeco Ryans..
Dominic Williams(formerly Davis)
Mark Bruener..
Owen Daniels..
Damarcus Faggins..
Anthony Weaver..
Kevin Walther..
CC Browm...
Glen Earl..

Players who start for more team than not

dunta Robinson
Demeco Ryans
Chester Pitts
Mario williams (really because of his potential)

Solid starters, but not special

Anthony Weaver
owen daniel
Ahman Green
Kris Brown

Guys with "potential" to be in the above categories, good risks to move up

Spencer
Winston
Kevin Walter
Mathis (only as a returner)

he and Pitts were the toughest to place, because every team has and needs players of that calibur.
