    This probably isn't a popular sentiment around here nowadays, but I wouldn't rank Cushing as the number two. Maybe top 10 or top 8. Until he strings a few years together at this level of play, I think that as a whole we should take a step back on raving about how amazing Cushing is. Sure, he's got a good chance for DROY, but I'd still question putting him as the second best Texan player of all 2000.

    My Top 10 list includes the following:

    1. David Carr (best Texan ever)
    2. Travis Johnson
    3. Fred Bennett
    4. Chris Brown
    5. Kris Brown
    6. Phillip Buchanon
    7. Tony Bosseli
    8. Jason Babin
    9. Ahman Green
    10. David Carr (so good, had to list twice)

    Wouldn't that list almost have to include Chester Pitts? He may not be elite, but for longevity, stability and being a light in a dark pit of ineptitude I would put him on my list.

    Mario, AJ and Demeco are certainties

    Others worth consideration are...

    Daniels
    Pitts
    DD
    Sharper
    Glenn
    K Brown

    Gosh who should I bump to squeeze them in? I mean, look at that list. SO many greats, like .5ypc Chris Brown or the best OL to ever be a Texan Tony Boselli. Just imagine how great he would have been had he ever played a down?

    Pretty close to what I would rank them, but Glenn would be #2 for me. People forget how good he was.

    Another example of fans hatred towards Dunta getting in the way of what he has done for this franchise.

    I probably defend D-Rob more than anybody, and I really can't see a case for ranking him higher than the 10 SamuraiTexan listed.

    From what he has done in his career with the Texans, not just this year!?

    Who else other than MAYBE OD could you put on that list in front of him?

    D Rob would be 10B with edged by Davis but certainly #11. And, I don't hate DRob at all.

    Sorry but no way Cushing could already be on that list(I think the guy is amazing but he hasn't even finished a year).
    Sharper and Pitts just plain do not have the same talent/difference making ability that D-rob had.

    MAYBE DD, big maybe..it was short lived.

    Sharper and Pitts were both a whole lot closer to a Pro Bowl than Dunta ever has been.
