    Cool. Glad to see it and all that. But it doesn't mean squat if they actually are in the damn pro bowl because it means they are out of the playoffs.

    Reminds me of the Pardee Oilers teams --- stacked with marquee players, but no trophies.

    The playoffs haven't even started, but you can just sense that this team is slated for a disappointing finish.

    Ahh, the joys of the NFL in Houston. All hat and no cattle.

    Great job, Texans! But Schaub on that roster? A bit surprising.

    Not really. He's 4th in the AFC in QB rating and 3rd in Total QB rating. Plus he's on the AFC's best team which gives him more public awareness.

    I probably would have gone with Rapistberger by a narrow margin without any bias playing into it, but I'm never unhappy when that dude loses out.

    That's awesome. I'm glad they are getting recognized for their individual achievements.

    Now they need to put that crap behind them & go get the ultimate team award.

    I'm more surprised with Wade Smith than Schaub.

    Well then OD is in as well because Heath Miller has a blown ACL.

    Shocked to see Alex Smith isn't on the list.

    There's more than one alternate for each position, and I believe Jermaine Gresham is the first alternate at TE.
