    DeMeco has a good shot but he isn't a lock I don't think. AFC middle linebacker is stacked. Mario and Andre are locks for sure and I agree with your other hopefuls.

    That is who I was thinking. Every week it seems he is blowing one or two defensive players. And the announcers are commenting on it as well.

    Schaub keeps playing like this and he is going to be there as well.

    Right now I would say that Andre and Mario are locks based on their name recognition. DeMeco would be the next logical choice, however, I still don't think he's given the same amount of love in the media.

    Jeez, you guys were ready to throw him off the team a couple of weeks ago.

    What a difference a little pass protection makes.

    I was always for Schaub over Sage.

    Don't forget Schaub as a hopefull.

    As of now he has 1,623 yards, 10 TD's through 6 games. He is on pace for over 4,000 yards and 25 TD's.

    What a difference winning makes.

    He looked awful against Pitt, threw a game losing INT against Tenn, and had a belly ache and was unable to start against the Colts.

    But since he has come back, he has ran in the winning score vs the Dolphins, and played two straight weeks of flawless games.

    It was a rough outing in the beginning but hopefully with the confidence that was injected over the last three weeks we go into Minn and beat a good team on the road.

    Oh, and by the way, something is up with Ryans. He is not his usual self. He has only 40 solo tackles through 7 games. No sacks. No picks. I think that rolled ankle is hurting more than what he is letting on.

    I hate to say it, but Demeco didn't help his chances today. His tackle numbers were way down. I'm just guessing it's because Diles is taking them away.

    Gawd! Did you see his block on Slaton's TD? That was a thing of beauty.

    For sure Andre and Mario. Hopefully Demeco and Winston can get in.

    Andre Johnson has 593 receiving yards...in the month of October! He's having a monster year.

    Mario is on pace to potentially break his old sack record of 14.

    Winston is going to have a real hard time because the pro-bowl doesn't differentiate between left and right tackles. Therefore the big-name left tackles will get the nod over less heralded right tackles. 4-3 OLBs have it the same way with the 3-4 guys getting all the sacks and attention. They should seriously limit the fan impact on the voting though, and wait till the end of the season to vote. Oh well.
