Default Pick a Texan Challenge

I suggest each of us pick a Texan to follow this season and report to MB on how your guy(s) does. Probably be best to select no more than two perhaps one offensive and one defensive. This allows more players to be chosen by different posters. The challenge is to not take the easy route & go with AJ, Foster, Schaub or JJ Watt. We know those types will be very good if not great so challenge yourself to select a rookie or 1-2 year vet. It is not about being able to say "Look at me! I told you Watt would have a good second year." Really, who would of thunk it? I'm asking you to go on a limb and maybe even pick someone you have doubts about. It would be as if I select Posier who I did not want or an end of roster guy who might not get reps like last season's Brandon Harris. If your guy gets cut, traded or placed on injured reserve, you can replace him.

I'd like you to focus on your guy during training camp, pre-season and regular season to give info to the MB. Info should be about skills, plays, personal info, charitable work and community interaction. Some different players should have radio & TV shows or interviews that you can tell us about. Internet and newspapers & sports magazines could provide data. Hopefully this will encourage us to take an even deeper view of our team.

When you post your selection tell us why you chose him. I'm optimistic many of you will put some thought into your decisions as this could give us something to discuss now & thru season. Everyone should post their selection by final roster determination.

Do we need to spell their name correctly or can we call 'em anything we want? Umm, like Walters or Posier?

Randy Bullock

I believe he will be the starting kicker for us this year.

Just a bit about him:

Quote:
During interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine, Houston Texans special teams coach Joe Marciano asked Texas A&M kicker Randy Bullock how he would handle his first adverse situation in the NFL.

"You've never had a slump," Marciano said. "What happens when you have your first one?"
Bullock, without blinking an eye, said, "Coach, my dad died when I was 15. How much more adversity is there?"

Bullock was a freshman at Klein High School in Houston in 2004 when he and his older brother, Rhett, went on a hunting trip to South Texas with their father, Rich. On the final day of the trip, two days before Christmas, Rich died of a heart attack. He was 53.

For his career, Bullock made 63 of 80 field-goal attempts.

His father was a petroleum engineer who graduated from Ohio State. His brother, Rhett, has a mechanical engineering degree from A&M.

"I have a lot of help in that industry," Bullock said. "I have a lot of contacts, so that definitely helps when looking for a job. Right now, though, this takes the cake. It's kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. If I didn't chase it, I didn't think I would ever forgive myself."

On offense, I have to take my adopted Texan: Chris Myers.

On defense, I'll take Mercilus.

Defense: Quintin Demps - Haven't been paying attention to what he does for the defense, really.
Offense: Duane Brown - Possibly his last season and he should be playing for his contract. I think he'll be a Pro Bowler this year.

Excellent CK and what I'm looking for. It is okay for other posters to share players as we want as much info flowing to us as possible. Thanks everyone and hopefully as others come back from holiday, we can get more involved.

I'm going to take Rashad Butler-RT. This is a contract year for him since he'll be a FA at the end of the season and it's also his first chance to show what he can do for a whole season. He should have a great year since his future in the NFL depends on it and he'll be auditioning for the entire NFL this year. I've got very high hopes for Mr. Butler.

You did not get that I combined parts of his first & last names to produce Posier (poser)? 23 you should get off the spelling and punctuation platform and try to see the fun in my stuff.
