Default Which Texan is a possible 1st time Pro Bowler in '08? (According to NFL.com)

Surprise! It's Mario Williams.

What? You were thinking CC Brown?

Quote:
Having a great year in 2008 is what will get players to Hawaii, but it also doesn't hurt if the player had a solid 2007 season. Team success and fan passion to stuff the ballot box are factors in the process, but when a coach or GM tells me about an emerging star on his roster, especially at positions where stats don't dominate the discussion like offensive line, it is very important.


Here are the top 10 players that have emerged from my discussions over the past few weeks.



1. Mario Williams, DE, Houston: Heading into his third season after 14 sacks last year and 18.5 in his first two years. A teammate said Williams is walking around at 300 lb. and looks unblockable.
Considering that Jared Allen is now in the NFC, while Jason Taylor is in limbo with the Dolphins, Mario is practically a Pro Bowl lock with anything close to his '07 performance.

Hopefully it doesn't go to his head.

If Gibbs' coaching boosts our running game, maybe Winston will get some consideration. Can't have a successful running game w/o good blocking

they need to wait until after the season to make the selections. everyone knows Mario should have made it last year but it was determined before his body of work was complete

If Mario repeats last year's performance , hes a no-brainer . As far as someone that would be a surprise , it would be nice to see Fred Bennett step up and make himself the number one defensive back on this team , and make it to Honolulu .

Freeney
Mario (if he is as good or better than last year)

who else?
There's some good DE's in the AFC

Kyle Vanden Bosch (Titans)
Tamba Hali (Chiefs)
Elvis Dumerville (Broncos) - he might be nothing more than a pass rushing specialist though. He had 12 sacks but only 39 tackles.
Aaron Schlobel (Bills) - Only had 6.5 sacks last year but had 14 and 12 the two years before

I don't think any of them are as good as Mario though!

Very good point. If our running game turns around like we are all hoping for, the media will be heaping credit on Alex Gibbs -- and thusly influence the voting for offensive linemen. In other words, the media will take the story of the much maligned offensive line and trumpet the turnaround. It's a made for tv segment if I ever saw one.

It's a much longer shot that say Mario, right - but, I can certainly see things playing out like that.

Here's to multiple pro bowl selections in 2008.

I agree. If he stays healthy, hes got a good shot. We know Brady doesnt go, and no one else really stands out as 100% better whos not named Peyton Manning.

I don't know. Schaub would have to have an epic year to get to the Pro-Bowl, when you consider who plays Qb in the AFC.

To get voted in, sure. But, a lot of the top QBs beg off playing in the game and the alternates get a ticket to Honolulu. See: Young, Vince.

If Mario continues on his pace from last year it would be a no brainer. Last year I wanted Mario to at least record double digit sack #'s and he did that. Now this coming year I want him to have 15-19 sacks or higher.

Well, lets see. Manning is a shoe in. Brady is allergic to Hawaii. Who else? Carson Palmer is over rated. Add to that the rest of his team is thuggish and crazy hurts his chance more. Big Ben is ok, but we have seen him fall to peices before. Who else is THAT much bettter than Schaub? I cant think of any one.

Derek Anderson was in last year. It's always easier to get in once you've been to a Pro Bowl. Phillip Rivers plays on a winning team. Winning teams get the most Pro Bowl players. David Garrard was considered a Pro Bowl snub last season (and is on this NFL.com list). It's a tough position in this conference. The best chance Schaub (or any Texan) has is for the team to win a bunch of games.
