    2012 version


    2011 version

    I've done this for a couple years in a row. I usually start the poll around pre-seaon time and close it after a few weeks.

    Texans going to have to do special things to o to special places. Keep that in mind.

    And then I thought Mercilus, Barwin, and Reed were going to do well...

    I really, really, really wanted to pick Arian and Andre for 30+ TDs this season. Really badly. But I think Hopkins will sneak in more as well as the TEs...

    I went with the sacks. If Watt has another monster year (which I can see him having, hopefully with some help), I don't think it's that far fetched that the other two manage to get 13 or so sacks... maybe...

    Very tough choices this year. A lot of them had one part I think the Texans could do, but the 2nd part of the goal combined with the first would kill it for me. Like the special teams getting 4 TDs (very possible) but not allowing any all season? Nope.

    I went with a rookie or 2nd year player making the pro-bowl.

    No more VIP Suite so back to the recliner
    I went with JJ Earl & Merci going sackoliscious.

    Seems to be the most attainable/reasonable choice.

    Went with Schaub being healthy last year and I guess I was semi-right. He did start every game. I'm going to wait a couple of preseason games before I select this year.

    I'm going with a rookie or 2nd year player making the pro-bowl.

    I'm probably jinxing someone, though.

    I voted that a rookie or second year player makes the Pro Bowl. I honestly don't see more than three of those even being realistic at all. The Texans could win 14 games and the Super Bowl, and they could have the #1 defense. I sure as heck don't see them scoring 28.8 per game and finishing with the top scoring offense. No way. I suppose the sack thing is possible, but I'd need Watt to break the record to feel like it was worth voting for. And AJ and Foster combining for 30 TDs? Well, sure ... if Foster gets 22 of them.

    Arian had 17 last year....Andre had 4....That's 21....

    That's kind of low for Andre...even though he's never been a TD machine...

    It's a lofty goal I know...But people felt the same way about Watt and Antonio combining for 13.5 sacks....

    This year might be the most "far fetched" as I've made them in the past, but we are a better team. Goals gotta get bigger right?

    And not top offense top 3...We were at 26 ppg offensively last year and we finished 8th in scoring.

    If we'd have put up our normal scoring against the bears we might have gotten there last year...And that's with some other stinkers mixed in...

    1. DeAndre Hopkins
    2. Brandon Brooks (although it's hard for a guard unless he really shines)
    3. Keyshawn Martin
    4. Jared Crick
    5. DJ Swearinger
    6. Randy Bullock
    7. Quessenberry
    8. Trevardo Williams
    9. Sam Montgomery

    Those are my hopes and my expectation of their likelihood.

    Man, you must not think much of Mercilus at all.
