Chester Pitts vs. Eric Winston

 

Chester Pitts (2002-2009)

Mr. Texan started 114 straight games for the Texans since their inaugural season. A knee injury in the 2009 season ended his career as a Texan, but his overall contribution as a player since day one is something that will not be forgotten.

 

 

 

Eric Winston (2006-2011)

Started 87 straight games for the Texans, including the playoffs.  Winston has been a staple of the offensive line. The right tackle was an anchor on the right side of one of the best offensive lines the past two seasons.

Vonta Leach vs. DeMeco Ryans

Vonta Leach (2006-2010)

Leach was an undrafted free agent who found a home in Houston and ended up making the Pro Bowl (2010) before he left in free agency. Leach’s biggest game was when he was destroying Colts players, opening holes for Arian Foster’s big day in 2010. Leach also played special teams and gave the offense much-needed attitude.

 

 

 

DeMeco Ryans (2006-2011)

The Captain leads the franchise in Total tackles (636), Fumble recoveries (8), and Defensive Games Played (86). Was also named the 2006 AP Defensive ROY and had two Pro Bowl Selections (2007, 2009).

Excitement Brewing: Texans OTAs

Here are some final notes on the Texans last OTA of 2012.   - Gary Kubiak was impressed with Case Keenum today.

Texans Head Coach Gary Kubiak reportedly frustrated with rookie DeVier Posey

When the Texans drafted DeVier Posey in the 3rd round despite work ethic and character concerns, it was a surprise pick. Posey has all the physical talent, but has never lived up to it on the field and has had some off the field issues. He was also underwhelming in the Senior Bowl, frustrating coaches in practice. It appears Posey is not done frustrating coaches as his new Head Coach...

By CHRIS DUNCAN AP Sports Writer It may be the most indelible image of the Houston Texans' 2011 season - blood pouring down the face of linebacker Brian Cushing after a scrap with Cleveland guard Shawn Lauvao in a November game against the Browns.

The Texans were much better than the Titans in 2011

Lately, I've seen some chatter about how the Titans are being unfairly neglected in talking about who might win the AFC South in 2012. After all, the thinking goes, the Titans only finished one game behind the Texans in 2011, and in the offseason the Texans got worse and the Titans got better. The AFC South, so goes the line of argument, should be a very competitive race at the...

Vonta Leach at #45 in the NFL Top 100 Special? C’mon Man!

By now, any consistent reader of mine knows that I follow and write for the Houston Texans during the regular season. Therefore, I usually know much more about players on their roster that the common NFL or national sports writer may know about them.
