    This post by Carr2Johnson got me thinking about whose numbers the texans might one day retire. At this point, who do you think is the most deserving of this honor? Who will earn that honor through exceptional play in years to come?

    Have no idea.

    No one has performed at any level for one season for this consideration.

    This is like picking who will win the Super Bowl in 10 years.

    no it is worse, because at least picking the superbowl you only have 32 teams

    No picking the winner in the Super Bowl in 10 years is WAY easier. You got a one out of 32 chance ( 33 counting L.A. )

    Yeah, I guess you are right. And at least you know there will be a winner that year.

    Maybe there won't be a player playing "well" enough to even be considered for retiring his number.

    Great point!

    Billy Madison signed in 2010 in the 7th round as a 6 foot 7 inch running back weighing 295 pounds. He scored 150 tds and rushed for 22,000 yds. He retired after only for years and was a selection in first year of eligibility. If you are going to fantasize, so will I.

    PD - At this point, I see only one contendor for that spot. Only one player on the Texans team has made the Pro-Bowl and still looks competitive/doesn't seem to be on the bubble. My guess is Dre. I suspect he is going to bounce back, and I also suspect he will make the Pro Bowl multiple times.

    There should never be another #82, that is unless it's Billy Miller himself. Retire the number and give it the credit it's due. He has the distinction of having THE exceptional play...the first touchdown deserves the first retiring. :twocents:

    Here is who we should retire

    Jamie Sharper's 55
    Aaron Glenn's 31
    Seth Payne's(I forgot his number)

    They deserve it most

    They were only here for a few years of there career. They've played in other places longer. Why would they want their number retired here?

    I wouldn't retire his number, but I would give him the first slot in the Ring of Honor though. He kept the fires burning in these cold first seasons.

    Although he sorta gets the martyr tag though too, because he was cut he doesn't get tagged with being part of the lull. That shields him a little.

    Matt Stevens. No one should be able to use his number (26). It's probably cursed. Glenn Earl should change his jersey number right now.
