    i like the dobbins pick for special teams. i wasnt very high on the guy when he first signed on, but he seems to have really adapted to the texans and appears to work as hard as anyone. after a great preseason, i hope that hard work pays off and he earns a spot next to cushing later in the season.

    Quarterback Matt Schaub and wide receiver Andre Johnson are the offensive captains.

    Defensive end Antonio Smith and inside linebacker Brian Cushing are the defensive captains.

    Inside linebacker Tim Dobbins is the TexansÂ’ special teams captain. Each captain is selected by a vote of his teammates.

    I always thought it was who the players see as the leaders of the team in each category.

    If there's something going on that the players have a concern about, the captains can address it with management. Having 15 players each walk into Kubiak's office complaining about the same thing would be unproductive.

    Instead, if Kubiak got a visit from Mart and Andre on behalf of the entire offense, Kubiak would know that the issue is serious.
