Default Probowl MVP Will That Bring More National Love For Matt And The Texans?

I hope it does as every fan of the Houston Texans know the team does not get nearly as much coverage or love by fans around the league. During the game last night I posted if you do not think AJ's and Matt's game was huge you were wrong some here were wondering who posted on here that it was not huge and the truth is no one did. I just think it's time for more love for the Texans and Matt together. No one may say the QB is the problem anymore simply because it is not. I know not many say this anymore but also he is not given as much credit on the national stage as Manning, Brady, or big Ben. Now I know local fans embrace both AJ and Matt as well as the entire team if you were to take a look at the numbers Matt does rank among the top in the NFL. But very few accross the country sees this up to this point in part because the Texans have not made the playoffs yet. They have now had their very first winning season in franchise history and I am hoping they take that and their Probowlers and exspand upon on it. Having played in the Probowl helps young players work harder to become even better and I think it will. Next season every one of us is exspecting the very first playoff birth ever for the team in a due or die year for Gary. That along with the Probowl last night should help out the cause for more coverage in a huge manner around the nation IMO. AJ is the number one wideout in the NFL today hands down so that debate should end already because the stats and game last night are there to prove it IMO. It's isn't just about playoff games not to to take anything away from Larry but that's the truth. Anyway, the offseason is long and this is just food for thought so have at it.

Hardcore football fans know we have a good passing attack, we just don't win a lot of games to show for it. I think Schaub winning the MVP will cause some national sports writers that didn't use to give us a chance to perhaps give us a bit more in their predictions for next year. Maybe.

But it is nice to see some national attention on the Texans that is positive for a change, so yeah, I like it.

This is a step in the right direction. Our team is simply fun to watch. We have primo talent on both sides of the ball. We were only out of 1 whole game this season. It will ramp things up imo..... but it still boils down to winning games.

Having media attention is massively overrated and I don't know why so many people are concerned about it. Its all about winning games, not how much time the media allocates to the Texans for highlights.

Gotta agree here.

I couldn't care less what the media or anybody else thinks, all I want is a winning football team.

As long as we're not on the news every day with guys like Chad 85, or TO or the like, then that's fine by me.

Was it nice to see Texans represent last night? Sure. But it was a meaningless going through the motions game that doesn't mean anything.

Get to where those 2 teams will be next week. That's what matters.

It's gotta mean something when a Houston quarterback wins the MVP honors of this meaningless game. There have been many of these meaningless, go-through-the-motions games since the merger, but no Houston player has won the honor since Billy White Shoes Johnson in 1976.

Right, I put a good amount of thought into my post and I just think it's too much Brady or Manning and there comes a point when more than those two should be talked about. Not just Matt but others as well IMO.

There is definitely way too much attention paid to a few select guys, like Brady, Manning and Young, but that comes with added pressure as well. I don't mind Schaub quietly in the background putting together seasons like he did this year. I do agree with you though.

OK, then, what does it mean? I haven't heard anybody talking about the Pro-Bowl. Not on the radio, Sportscenter, not with co-workers, friends, nobody.

Everyone thinks the game is a joke, so what exactly does it mean for Schaub, hell, for anybody to win an MVP award in that joke of a game?

Yeah, it's nice for us to see that Texan logo on screen in a national scene 'cause those are our guys, but other than that, nobody cares.

Who was the MVP in last year's Pro-Bowl?

Aside from the extended camera time Matt Schaub got on the NFL Network? I'd argue that players across the league pay attention to the Pro Bowl, so Schaub's status as the MVP only punctuates the level of talent on the Texans roster, thereby increasing Houston's attractiveness as a destination for coveted free agents.

Nobody is saying the game means anything. It doesn't. However, Schaub's award is free pub for himself and the franchise.

What attracts free agents to teams is not what Matt offers but rather what Mr. McNair offers and that would be money.

Money does talk, but would you rather have a little more money and play in Detroit or maybe a little less money and play in Houston?

Anything that puts out team in a good light helps attract the kind of FA players we would want - just my opinion.

Well, yes, but when there are multiple teams competing for your services, salary is not the only consideration.

The Texans have never been able to draw the interest of the brand name FAs because the franchise was thought of as a complete joke. Schaub's stellar play is a big reason that perception has changed.

I'm far more cynical than you apparently about pro athletes. I don't think it means much who plays on the team. Never have thought that.
