    Didn't see this posted anywhere. This is a great read and break down of DB's play. I really dig it when 'big nasties' get props. Read the entire article.

    OL is arguably the most important piece of the puzzle that makes up a good team. And LT is a huge part of that piece.

    Duane Brown has been stellar. Glad to see him getting well deserved recognition.

    He's been awesome. His name is rarely called (maybe a half dozen time at most this season) and that's a good thing.

    Pretty darn impressive.

    Duane Brown has now passed every other OT drafted ahead of him in the 2008 NFL Draft. (Although I think Ryan Clady is right there with him.)

    The man is a beast, and deserves the props after getting hammered early & often as a rookie.

    That is just awesome. I also like that Brown plays with a nasty attitude. He doesn't just want to block you, he wants to dominate and demoralize you.

    Wait, wait. This can't be right. Isn't this the same guy that I knew was a bust his rookie year (just like everybody else)?

    Next thing your gonna tell me is that Kareem Jackson isn't bust either. Bradie James, Alan Ball?

    No, no. I think I will just continue to judge these things quickly. After all, no one gets better with practice, effort, and coaching.

    I hope that style of play rubs off on Newton over the next few years.

    3 lions already on the ground, duane will add 3 more himself by the time arian gets to the goalline ... i think that's a pretty good recipe for a successful run game.

    "myers you have the DT, wade cut any persuit, newton try not to hold anybody, jones ... jones? anybody home?, ok and duane you have the right end, the sam linebacker, the middle linebacker, and the strong safety ... ready BREAK!"

    You do realize that James and Ball are neither drafted by the Texans or in the early part of their careers, right?

    LOL, love the huddle call.

    My son was trying to give Casey credit for the blocking on that play. I had to correct him and tell him it was all DB.

    Just another bust defended by the obnoxious 76Texan.
    Still remember some folks called me an excuse-maker when I put some of those sacks on the QB. :kitten:

    eh..... I think it's still subjective. For what they do, the Broncos probably wouldn't trade Clady for the world. I'm just happy we've got a good one.

    As much as I like DB, there's a whole lot of right on that play.

    1. Arian Foster being patient & staying behind the big guy
    2. Garrett Graham swinging the edge rusher outside, out of the play, & maintaining that block until the runner is well past him
    3. The backside of the line cut off all backside pursuit
    4. James Casey doesn't allow anyone on Brown's backside.

    You're too kind Sir!
    I was simply asking for patience.
    There are diamonds in the rough, but they all need polishing, right?
