    Congrats Mathis, I sure hope your agent had some provisions in your contract in the form of an incentive clause, etc. for an achievement such as this.

    I thought both Andre Johnson and Gary Walker were selected as All-Pro's as well.

    I doubt it since no single person could have predicted this kind of sucess. But congrats to him and heres to hoping he does have an incentive laden contract. :redtowel:

    They both made the Pro Bowl but being picked as an All Pro is the more prestigious award.

    A bit of good news in a bottle floating on a sea of poo. Last season just brings out the dung comparisons, 'eh? ;)

    Congrats to Mathis, though!!

    I dont think very many 4th round picks have clauses in their contracts. None the less, Congrats Jerome!

    Who says speed isn't everything?

    Congrats to Jerome. A major award for him, and the franchise. One positive from Casserly's resume.

    A big congrats to Jerome, on the Pro-Bowl and being named an All-Pro.

    Just more proof that small school talent can and does succed in the NFL.

    Probably not predicted this kind of sucess but IIRC, when the draft happened last season there were plenty of people on the MB who were excited about that particular choice, lots of MB hype for a 4th rounder.

    As an aside, let me add that I would very much like to see Joe Marciano as a special teams coach for the Texans next season.

    He is very well-liked by his players, a terrific motivator and teacher, enthusiastic, ST has done very well for the Texans, and is well thought of by various staff members in the Texans organization.

    From what I understand, the new HC has say as to who they hire for various positions, and I hope he comes back and wants to come back.

    cant say I agree with that.

    MATHIS has done very well for the Texans, everyone else hasnt been very good. Cant coach speed, those returns were all Mathis.

    Kris Brown lost us like 4 games this year- hes Marciano's responsibility. our punting was worse than years before, and punt returns were non existant.

    Look at the stats. Look at the Texans special team stats since our existence. Most years the ST performed way better than the rest of the team did--which suggests he took the same talent that was on the rest of the team, and coached them up pretty well.

    Also, I was at a clinic where one of the assistant coaches was saying that Marciano was the one that was selling that we needed to pick Mathis. And this same clinic, the coach showed some film of kick return where Mathis got a TD--it went exactly like Coach Joe drew up the play. Had Coach Joe not been sold on Mathis, and we mighta ended up with Swinton.

    I am not easily impressed with people, but the few times I have seen Coach Joe break down film and teach people stuff, he blew me away. He makes you want to run through brick walls for him.

    Congratulations, Jerome. I for one wouldn't have picked a rookie receiver from a D1-AA school as being the first All-Pro for the Texans, but it is a well deserved honor.

    Congratulations to Jerome Mathis! He was our best player this season and hopefully one day he'll be an All-Pro at wide receiver too.
