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

All of these guys must have very good years if the Texans are going to make the playoffs. I didn't want to vote for anyone because I think all of these guys will have great years, but since it's my poll and I have to vote, it goes to Ahman Green due to his recent bouts with injuries.

Matt Schaub: First year starter under a new coach and technically a new system. Expectations are high, so it won't be hard to disappoint.

DeMeco Ryans: It would be easy to disappoint after such a good rookie season.

Ahman Green: Will he be the Batman of old or is he this year's Eric Moulds?

Dunta Robinson: Has yet to live up to his rookie year. If he plays poor to average again this year is it time to start looking for a franchise cover corner?

Andre Johson: AJ always has a lot of catches but few big plays or TD's. In my opinion he has to become a gamebreaker this year (e.g. Chad Johnson, Steve Smith, Terrell Owens) or it will be a disappointing year.

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

I'd go Green. He's been worn down by the Packers, and with no legit 2nd WR, he will see a ton of catches. Probably produce well for the first six games, then end up beat up or out.

Schaub would be 2nd, simply for the fact that their is so much preasure on him not to suck than any screw up will look huge.

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

I debated between Ahman Green and Dunta, voted for Dunta. I don't think Kubiak will let Ahman get to the point of being broken down by the 6th game. We have pretty adequate backups in Gado, Dayne, Lundy, Leach, and Cook, depending on who makes the roster. Not so with CBs. Faggins and Dunta got burned WAY to many times last year. Dexter McCleon is mediocre at best, IMHO, and Fred Bennett is unproven. I realize Faggins was coming off an injury and probably wasn't 100%, but, Dunta just didn't seem to have the heart last year. He either kicks it up a notch or two, or he will prove to be a major disappointment.

AJ will NOT disappoint! PERIOD!! It's just not in his makeup to give anything less than 10000%. He and Matt will become one of the most fearless duo's in the NFL. JMO!! Tremendous amount of natural talent between the two. With our improved D, Memo will have a probowl year! His leadership abilities and talent on the DL will put our D in the top 10 next year.

Here's to a GREAT year!! I can't wait!!

Schaub. He might be good eventually, but people are expecting to much. His stats will be much like Carr's, perhaps a little better.

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

I would have to agree with Ryans as the potentially most dissappointing, with a rookie year like he had it will be hard to beat. Although most of the change will probably be statwise, wich doesnt allways tell the true story.

Where's the "none" option? I can't really see any of these players really having that disappointing of a season, but I guess Ahman Green has the most potential to have a disappointing season.

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

I'm in none of the above too...I think those guys listed will all have good years. I think the place that will have the most potential disappointment is in either line. We now have a defensive line littered with first round choices and the offensive line should have some continuity since they have been together for more than just a few games now....this is the area that I see the biggest potential land mines.

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

I went with Ahman Green. It was a difficult decision, though.

With Demeco, there's a possibility of a sophomore slump. After the comments that Dunta made about Carr, he really needs to step up. I'm one of the people who expects a lot from Schaub and if he plays similar to Carr, then I will be very disappointed. AJ had a big year last year and he could come back to earth this year.

But with Green, there's a lot of talk about him being the best back we've ever had. And in the past, he has been very productive. But he IS 30 years old and although backs have been more durable lately if they've kept themselves in shape, 30 is still getting up there for a RB. He's also got a little history as a fumbler. And I think we all know how Kubiak feels about fumblers. And then there's his health.

So, I think there are a lot of expectations with Green but there are also a lot of possible problems.

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

I can't remember which link from the Chronicle web site has it, and I'm not a big McClain fan, but he said on on of the sound bite links that D-Ryans appeared to actually be the most improved player on the team in OTAs. That's really saying something after what he did last year.

I voted for (against, actually) Dunta here. I'm still not convinced that D-Rob is a legitimate #1 corner, especially without the right safeties back there helping him. His first and best season was accomplished as a #2 corner. He's definitely a starter though--no doubt about that.

None of the above is my choice.

If I had to choose from all the players, I'd put TJ and Backstreet Boyz Babin up there, simply because I think one has no drive and the other is just going to get beat out by better DE's.

I don't think any of those guys will disappoint.

I worry that Mathis will average 40+ yards per return for a couple of games, and then we'll hear he pulled a hammy on an escalator or while walking his dog and will be IRed.

That will disappoint.

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

It depends on what you mean by disappointing. If you mean worst year based on what the Texans are paying him, I'll go with Ahman Green. They gave this guy a huge amount of money for a 30+ year old running back. There is no way Green earns all that money. Personally, I won't be disappointed because I don't think he's going to do anything anyway.

Personally, I'll be disappointed if Dunta doesn't step up his play and be a major factor in the backfield. I thought he showed some leadership at the end of 2006 and I expect great things from him this year.

I think is DeMeco sees a dropoff, it will actually be a good sign. If one guy is making most of the tackles and plays, it usually means that the rest of the defense sucks.

I partially agree. Most times the player with the most tackles is your Mike. Look at the strong Baltimore Ravens or Chicago Bears D's of years gone by. Most prolific tackler is either Ray Ray or Mr. Urlacher. I think what will end up happening is that Teams will run away from Mario(as seen last year) and away from Amobe's side(as his run D improves). The only place left would be to Maddox's side. This will be in front of Demeco and I expect him to clean up. However, I still expect his numbers to fall somewhat, but still lead the team and possibly be in contention for leading the league as well.

The mike needs to pick up the most tackles, but if one guy is throwing up 150 tackles by himself, it usually it means he isn't getting much help.

Of course, your FS leading the team in tackles is always a bad thing

Oh yeah a FS is a BAD BAD thing. But one guy putting up a bunch of tackles does not mean his teammates aren't helping. Not neccesarily at all. I present to you my adopted NFC team: The Chicago bears: in terms of total tackles Mr. Urlacher had 141 and Mr. Briggs had 130. Look at Indy; June had 142, teamate Brackett had 120. How about the Tacks: Bullock 143, Hope 121, Thonton 107. It is possible to get a bunch of tackles, and get lots of help. Sadly the best Texans D could give Meco was Greenwood at 109.
