Texans Had A Few Pro Bowl Snubs

First off, congratulations to both Arian Foster and Johnathan Joseph for their very deserving Pro Bowl nods on Tuesday. Both of them are at the very top of their positions and should be going to Hawai'i.

There are a number of players the Texans have listed as alternates who could be added to the roster because of injuries or the Super Bowl. A couple of them are more than deserving as making it, including Chris Myers, Duane Brown and Brian Cushing.

I can see why Brown wouldn't make it over Jake Long and Joe Thomas, but D'Brickashaw Ferguson? The problem with Brown is his best skill set (athleticism on screens) isn't flashy enough to beat out some of the higher drafted tackles. Myers, too, is the most deserving offensive lineman on one of the best units in the game.

As for Cushing, I'm sure his steroid test last year influenced some votes, but he's been the most dynamic player on this Texans defense. His stats aren't as gaudy as his rookie season, but he's played just as well at a new position. I could argue just as much for J.J. Watt, Owen Daniels and even Jacoby Jones as a special teams player, but Cushing, Brown and Myers are really the most egregious oversights.
