    After Dunta Robinson got robbed of the rookie D of the Year, Im glad Demeco seems to be in the lead.

    I don't know - earlier in the year when Mario was off to a slow start it was posted that Williams was Casserly's pick, not Kubiak's. I'm sure that perception is chaging by now and as Williams improves he will be a KUbiak pick.

    This is an over generalization, but the only thing I can determine from the board is that Casserly had complete control on bad picks and was powerless on the good ones.

    I think that player development had far more to do with draft day errors than the talent picked. I think the Texans have hurt some careers that could have been decent if drafted into another situation.

    I agree with that.. my point is CC was basically a "lame duck" GM on draft day, I just wonder ..

    I know what you are saying. I also think Kubiak had a lot of power in that draft room. He is the most powerful single person in the Texans' short history. Kubiak doesn't have a lot of checks and balances on him right now.

    Casserly did not draft guys Capers did not want. The coach has more say in who to draft than the GM. However, the Mario pick was mutual.

    I've always thought that the GM and his staff sorted the players up and told the coach who was impressive and such and let the coach watch film on the guy or go visit him and decide what he wants. GM (organizer), Coach/Coaches (decision maker/s).

    That's how I always thought it was.

    Not to dismiss Ryan's accomplishments at all, but he does play the middle linebacker position. I really think it's about an "instant impact" position on defense as the RB position on offense. MLB should always be the #1 tackler on the team. Plus, it's not like he's facing any real competition this year. He's going to pretty much run away with the award this year. Having said that, it's really great to see him doing so well this year. Hopefully, he'll build up his body even more in the next few years. If he builds up some more speed and strength to go along with his instincts, he's going to be a beast.

    I just find it a little humorous how people are saying our #2 pick is having a much bigger impact than our #1 pick ect. He's a MLB! He SHOULD be putting up better #s than our rookie DE, especially one that's as raw as Mario. Mario Williams is still the #1 pick cause you just aren't going to find a guy like him every year. But the Zack Thomases, the Totuppus, and the Datt Nguyens of the world pop up pretty regularly. It really makes you think how people should judge more on football IQ at the LB position rather than a player's physical talents.

    Over here.
    Demeco is one of the best MLBs in the NFL this year. I don't think Mario has had one of the best first halfs at his position, although I'm not gonna look it all up, talking about tackles, assists, and sacks. Nothing against Mario, but I'm still thinking that Ryans is our best rookie right now. Of course, that could change.

    I thought Peter King was a dumb ass?


    There is one thing that irritates the hell out of me though and it's during that "Football in America" abortion of a pre-game/halftime show that Costas hosts. They turn to King and he says something like "I just got off the phone with Bill Cowher and he said..." or "Chad just text'd me and he said" blah blah blah ...as if he's preeminently connected.

    I've been wondering the same thing. The board has generally hated the national media for months. Now that they've given us a coquettish grin and a smack on butt the board seems deep in the grip of periphesence.

    I'm guessing that equates to runner's euphoria...

    He is. He dogged-out the Texans earlier in the year (Mario in particular).
