    I was just kind of wondering who most people on this board think is the face of the Houston Texans now? For me, I think it's Mario...first pick of the year to go with the new era of Texans football. :redtowel:

    A.J...He's been the most important and the only person every team really "feared".

    I think plenty of people feared D.Rob. That is why every team threw away from his side(causing his interception total to drop significantly).

    At the moment, AJ and D-Rob both had a drop off in performance last year (like most everybody else) and Mario hasn't yet proven anything (just like Bush, Young, Leinart, Fergason, etc.), so I'm gonna go with DD. It goes along with that huge sigh of relief he probably had when he heard Mario signed a contract. :)

    D.Rob until someone proves themselves otherwise, IMO. AJ would be a close second right now.

    D. Rob also, but Andre Johnson is better known around the league.

    Yeah, you're right but what I mean is like, who do you think of when you think of the Texans? You know like when you think of the Packers, you think of Favre or the Bears and Urlacher.

    The QB is not always the face of the franchise. Look at the Ravens SB team. Ray Lewis or that QB who's name I couldn't remember if my life defended on it?

    Probably in the FO's eyes. But not necessarily because he's earned it in the past four years. D.Rob and AJ have both been to the Pro Bowl. I'd be surprised if DC has even made the ballot.
