    Interesting analysis. Three Texans players made the list.

    Not terrible. I do have to say I disagree with this one though:

    Seems like he is putting him on here just because of where he was drafted. And I was a big Reggie supporter before the '06 Draft. But thats a whole different discussion. My apologies.

    So, think any other Texans should have made the list? Discuss.

    Where is the guy who won the Rookie rushing title? The two guys he beat out are on the list.

    Title Holder: 1,282
    Forte: 1,238
    Johnson: 1,228

    At first I was like "Well, Slaton was a rookie. So okay." But if those two guys are on the list...:gun:

    Apparently, Slaton wasn't even on the cusp.

    wth?

    As for Bush being the best punt returner or scat back? Again, what the hell? He wasn't first in average yards per return and he was tied with 3 TDs. Weird

    I've always thought that when rating players, it should be a mix of just pure stats alone along with the individual players importance to the team he plays on. With the stats carrying the bigger portion of the rating percentage.

    But, everyone and their brother puts out these lists, and as we all know, if you team is popular with the national press you'll have more of your team on these lists.

    True. Which makes the fact that we have three on this list even more impressive. Lets hope we have another good showing on Monday Night Football this year.

    I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but any list that has Johnson, Forte and Bush on it, but left off Slaton and OD, can't be a list I would put much stock in. And that's my opinion! :pirate:

    I love how all year last season we heard how Andre "is the best receiver in the league"....lead the league in catches and yards all season. Then we have to here crap like this...

    Wow...way to overrate somebody. Hear that Jerry. :rolleyes:

    I have no problem with somebody calling Larry Fitz the best in the league, but him and Andre are 1.a and 1.b and while he has Larry going on to be the best ever he just has Andre Johnson as...
    Not to mention he gave a obvious snub to a probowler in Daniels and passed up technically the best rookie running back for two other rookies, not to mention Reggie freaking Bush

    The Yahoo & PFW preview has Andre like 5th, Williams 11th, and Demeco at 40.

    Not too bad.
