I bet it sets the Texans backup (behind Mario) rookie sack record, LOL.

Man he's been playing well. And it's not just the sacks. He's getting pressure consistently and he's made several plays in the run game. I frankly expected him and Watt to make an impact next season, but not this year. IMO both should be DROY, just wondering who will get it.

If this defense is top 5 at the end of the year and Reed gets double digit sacks and/or gets national awards such as Pro bowl/Defensive Rookie of the Year etc etc., at what point do you consider letting Mario walk and save the money to use at other positions?

The day after the Superbowl.

Oh, you said "consider"...

I've already been considering it for weeks...

I looked it up. Okoye had 5.5 his rookie season.

So he hasn't broken it, yet.

Default Re: Brooks Reed

5 sacks with 6 games to go. If Reed can get to 10 or more i definitely think hes going to be one of the leading candidates for DROY along with Von Miller. Aldon Smith could be in the race but i don't see it as he's not a every down player and mostly plays on passing downs unlike Reed.

I also think Watt should garner some attention but he dosen't play the pretty positions even though hes had a stellar rookie year so far.

If Reed or Watt win it how sick would it be to have 3 DROY out of the last 6 years.

Patrick Peterson has DPOY locked up already even though the big plays he has made have been on ST.

My opinion, is that you need Mario if this is the case.

Now if Reed & Barwin have double digit sacks & we aren't blitzing as much..... Then I'll be fine with letting Mario walk.

For years, Mario has been the best player on defense, with no help. We started this year, & everyone across the line was getting sacks. JJ Watt, Barwin, Antonio, Mario & even Cody.

When all those guys are involved with pressuring the QB (& I know sacks aren't the end all be all, but if you're getting sacks, you're getting hurries, pressures, & hits). Then you've got something.

If at the end of the year, Brooks is the only one with double digit sacks, & no one else is close, then it doesn't make sense to me to not bring Mario back.

I can't see this defense not blitzing down the stretch, Wade sees that its successful and he'll keep doing it.

I am intrigued of a future LB corps of Mario/Cushing/Ryans/Reed with Barwin and Sharpton providing depth though.

There's nothing wrong with blitzing. It has to be done in balance though. From time to time, you have to get pressure without blitzing.

I'm not sure if you're joking or not, but he isn't even close to ROY or DPOY. Von Miller, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, AJ Green, Marcell Dareus, Aldon Smith, and Julio Jones are all playing great and getting noticed. Peterson has been picked on in coverage all year. He gets targeted about 6 times a game.

Opposing QBs have an average 80 qb rating against him and they have racked up over 400 yards this season with a 55% completion rate. Without his special teams TDs he would be in bust watch.

Default Re: Brooks Reed

Another start, another sack for Brooks Reed! One more and he will own the rookie record....unless J.J. Watt wants to join the party! Both of them have been much better than we expected. I want to say they are perfect for our defensive system but with their non-stop motors, they probably would do well in any system.

Thank god we have a defensive coordinator who knows how to hand pick quality players.

At the end of the season, it wouldn't surprise me if Brooks had 9-10 sacks and J.J. had 5-6.
