Last year Pro Football Focus had Derek Newton ranked 73rd out of 79 offensive tackles, a lot of analysts thought he would be cut this off-season. O’Brien not only didn’t cut Newton he had faith in him to be the starting tackle and it has paid off. Newton played outstanding this year and I would say he was the most improved Texans player this year. Newton went from bottom ranks...

What Texans made the pro bowl this year?

I don’t think I even need to name one of the two guys, of course the best defensive player in the NFL J.J. Watt is going to Hawaii. Arian Foster was the other Texans elected to go.
