    Can we get some love for this dude? I feel he is definitely the unsung hero in our defense. Pretty much does everything you could ask for. Probably one of the surest tackles on the team and that interception today? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=36BvyC_ODRM

    If Quinn had been a centerfielder and had made that catch with a glove, he'd make the top play on ESPN.

    That he did it as a safety, with a football, and barehanded makes it even more impressive. Its the best interception catch I've ever seen

    He definitely deserves some thread space.

    Our secondary right now if by far the best we have had at the Texans.

    Quin has made that safety spot his own, and he seems to be able to do pretty much anything from there. Run defend, cover, blitz, swat passes out of the sky.

    He is probably my favourite Texans player, only Joseph can compete but as a home grown Texans player, he wins.

    It was a great pick and here's hoping it breaks his drought as a play maker. During his rookie camp he was jumping on a lot of balls and getting picks. The last few years he's dropped some sure ones--I'm hoping this gets his groove on.

    As a tackler and cover safety, he's been very solid. Glad to see him getting some love also.

    I said before the season he's our most underrated player and should get a contract before Barwin. Glover hasn't even tapped into his full potential yet. When he does it is gonna be scary.

    Ive made the statement here before and in conversation with Cak .... What team has a better pair of safeties than the Texans ?!


    There might be better individual players but no team has the quality the Texans do in Quin and Manning on the back end.

    Earl Thomas & Kam Chancellor in Seattle are easily the best safety tandem in the NFL right now.

    I wouldnt go so far as to call one tandem better than the other .... but I dont think its a coincidence that these two teams have very good defenses and their safety play is a huge part of that.

    Thats probably the only tandem in the NFL comparable ....

    Quin is turning into a playmaker. People forget he was a 4th rd. pick & started @ CB as a rookie. Then Wade switched positions moving him to a NFL Strong Safety, so this is only his second season, looking more comfortable all the time.

    He was just ensuring that we had the opportunity to draft Watt.
