Default Re: List your top 10 Texans

If you made a list where all Texans players hit the FA market, who would get the most interest:

1. Mario - Every team is looking for a Mario Williams
2. AJ - Would be the #1 WR on about 30 of the 32 teams
3. DeMeco - Considered one of the top MLBs after 2 seasons
4. Okoye - Tremendous upside at a value position
5. Schaub - Showed enough last year to get calls from around 10 teams
6. Dunta - Would be much higher if not for his injury
7. Pitts - Similar OGs have received $40 million contracts
8. Winston - Solid now, with some upside
9. Daniels - Better than many teams have on their roster
10. Bennett - Made a lot of progress as a rookie

Default Re: List your top 10 Texans

Here we go .

These guys could start for every team in the NFL .

Mario
Demeco
AJ

These guys would compete for significant playing time on each team .

Dunta ... he's here because of injury
Daniels
Winston

These guys could start for 1/2 the teams .

Pitts
Bennett
Schaub

The last spot ... I guess I'll give to Okoye ... but he better show a lot more this year .

Default Re: List your top 10 Texans

My Top Ten (no one said they had to all be players)
1. Rick Smith (for our last two drafts)
2. Gary Kubiak (for switching out QBs and getting 8 wins out of a team that should have been dead due to serious injury)
3. Alex Gibbs (because I don't want to be leg-whipped)
4. Jethro Franklin (for getting T.J. off his butt)
5. Andre Johnson (for being a leader by example)
6. DeMeco Ryans (see above)
7. Dunta Robinson (lb for lb., most heart on the team)
8. Andre Davis (for answering the bell when A.J. went down; oh and making Jerome Mathis expendable)
9. Owen Daniels (for being the biggest surprise of the '06 draft - at least for me)
10. Vonta Leach (for lead blocking with attitude)

Honorable Mention:
N.D.Kalu (for giving the youngsters a good example of what a true pro is)
Ephraim Salaam (they just keep trying to get rid of you, don't they?)
Charles Spencer (I hope you earn a starting spot on the line)
Bob McNair (for signing all the checks)

I think he was a decent player last season, but IMO he hasn't proven much at this point to earn a top 10 spot.
Because he had 5 sacks in his rookie season. A lot of the highly touted rookie DE didn't even do that last year. Furthermore, that put him second on the team in sacks, as a rookie. He's not in the top half of my top 10, but he's on it.

I'd say its because we don't have many superstar players, and he has the potential to be great. 4 sacks from weeks 2-4 ain't half bad, especially for a DT.

I think you hit the nail on the head Anthony. I'm fine with it too. I'd rather have a team that works together producing W's rather than a bunch of "superstars' who can't work in unity.

I can't stand the Pats, but they're a perfect example. The Giants as well.

Default Re: List your top 10 Texans

in no particular order-

Mario Williams - best DE in football
Duane Brown - has to practice against the best DE in football
Andre Johnson - sets the example
DeMeco Ryans - productive
Dunta Robinson - toughness
Eric Winston - franchise RT
Chris Meyers - best friends with Eric & his dad posts on this board
Jacoby Jones - playmaker
Antwaun Molden - big heart/character, must prove himself once again
Sage Rosenfels - team player

I don't think you'll find many teams 10 deep with superstars. That's nearly half a starting line-up. I'd put our top 4 up against anyone's in the league though.

First you have Pittman in the top 3 twice...? Can you really dislike a player that much.

Second I don't see Weaver there so are you happy with his contribution to the team or what?

And third, who would you have us start at QB? I mean I guess if you could convince Kubiak to come out of retirement than that would be entertaining to say the least but... come on.
Come On.
COME ON!!!!!

as for my top ten
Mario
Demeco
Andre
OD
Schaub
Fred Bennett
Dunta
Kris Brown... YEAH THATS RIGHT I'm going with the kicker

Default Re: List your top 10 Texans

I'm going to look at this from the perspective of the Top Ten Texans in terms of the ones with the biggest influence on the course of the upcoming season.

1. Matt Schaub - Time to see what he can do over the course of a full season.
2. Andre Johnson - One of the best WR in the game, needs to make some big plays.
3. Chris Meyers - Hugely important position especially with the new blocking scheme, needs to show that he can be a full time starter.
4. Steve Slaton - Need another playmaker to step up.
5. Jacoby Jones - Needs to be the playmaker we all hope he is especially in the PR game.
6. Anthony Weaver - still the designated bookend to Mario, has to make an impact.
7. Fred Bennett - this is your chance to shine, can he handle being the #1 guy.
8. Dunta Robinson - Can he get back in time to help out.
9. Will Demps - Can he continue his pro-bowlesque form of late last year.
10. Andre Davis - Another guy who needs to shine on ST.
