Default Will Demps Pro Bowl Alternate?

Wow. I am speechless about this. He has really brought it the past couple of games, but seriously, I am very surprised by this. Any thoughts?

My thought...Bring this guy back next year and fast.

Also teach him how to catch every now and then.

Must be a thin year for FS's because he literally didn't play early in the season.

hmm, I remember some thought my thread was funny that I started after his very first game with us.

http://texanstalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44042

The only bad thing about him getting a alternate nod......his agent is probably going to ask for a little more money now.

Meh, i'd rather pay a little more for a sure thing than pay a little less for someone who may or may not pan out.

Usually we pay a little more for the latter and let go the former!!!

I think the front office will re-sign him. Now we need another S, and LB.

Default Re: Will Demps Pro Bowl Alternate?

I would assume he'll need to have his elbow cut on to repair the reoccurring dislocations. I'd take a chance on him just to see what he could do 100% healthy.

I have to admit, I was surprised he was chosen to be an alternate. Maybe his special little website helped out in that regard.

Default Re: Will Demps Pro Bowl Alternate?

All I know is that Will Demps came into the secondary and things changed right away. What makes it even crazier is that he did not start with Dunta in the line up - Dunta goes out against Oak and Demps comes in the following game against NO.

He in my opinion is a difference maker in the secondary because he brought an attitude/identity to the unit. I have never thought much of him as a player, but he has wowed me in his limited starts as a Texan.

Default Re: Will Demps Pro Bowl Alternate?

I'm not really all that surprised. Our secondary just flat out changed once he came into the lineup. Mario is getting more sacks. 9 over 5 games! Why? Will Demps is a major reason why. It just shows how much of a force he is. He is a gamechanger with his hits and coverage skills.

I certainly hope we resign him.

Radio guys had a good point. Demps has a reputation as a hard hitter and the guys who experienced first-hand remember it. Probably the reason Roy Williams got voted to multiple pro bowls despite his coverage skills.

I'm concerned about that, too. He may like his situation here, as well as all the fine Houston women, but this is likely to be his last big payday.

Sounds more like a thin year at FS cause it's not like he's started a lot BUT he's really made a huge impact on our secondary and I hope we do resign him.

I think he'll also keep in mind if he resigns he's assured a starting spot here. Can't say that for the rest of the league at this point.

A sense of humor and a sense of couth can be inclusive. In light of the recent situation, humor about the deceased should not be the route in my opinion.

I did not delete, but concur with the action.

And I concur with whoever deleted it as a regular board member myself. Let's leave the Taylor jokes alone for now. It's too early for them. The NFL is still grieving as indicated by the numbers on their helmets and his honorary pro bowl selection.
