    J.J. Watt, Chris Myers, Shiloh Keo named Texans captains

    Interesting seeing Keo get the nod from his teammates. I remember all the nice things said about him before his rookie season, and it looks like his hard work has paid off. He might not be a great safety, but he's always involved in every ST play, and it seems he's a pretty good leader as well.

    Keo had a real good play against the bills on a kick off last week. He engaged the blocker to cut off the outside and force the returner to the middle of the field, as soon as the return man cut inside Keo shed the block and made the tackle. Not the kind of thing a lot of fans notice but I guarantee the players and coaches pick up on those types of plays.

    Congrats to all 3.

    No surprise on Keo here, he was known as a hustle-guy type leader in college and always well respected by his teammates.

    I would have had Braman as ST captain.

    Yes he has .... but for the most part , the Texans special teams have been anything but special.


    I wonder if Gary would give you a shot on kickoffs ????

    Agreed, Kudos to him. I was thinking it was a wasted pick, but this is promising.

    I mean other than being the captain of the worst phase of this team that is.

    That's the point in letting the team decide. Braman & Ball are bulls, work-horses, Keo is their leader.

    They see the game totally different than we do.

    Wish I had the time, and the know how, to pull up all the posts by members of this board either bit*hing about Keo or wanting him GONE! Other than being kinda CUTE, he hasn't impressed me much either! BUT, here we go, now the boys a Captain of a SB, hopefully, bound team! Way to go dude, hope you are worthy of the praise in the coming games!!:fans:

    Yeah, my initial reaction to hearing Keo getting the vote was... what about Ball? He has made some absolutely amazing plays to down balls deep in people's territory this year. Even though he scares me as a corner, I think he's been a great pickup for ST.

    But.

    There is a reason why this is left up to the players. Keo has made plays as well and apparently, he's grown into the leadership role.
