Top Five Effective Texans From 2008
Considering their 8-8 2008 season, the Texans had several players to emerge as big time contributors on both sides of the ball. There were five players that were the most effective, three on offense and two on defense. One of the most effective offensive forces for the Texans was 2008 leading rookie rusher Steve Slaton. Slaton ran for 92 yards against the Chicago Bears on December 28th, to finish the season as the NFL's leading rookie rusher and also set the Texans' single-season rushing record with 1,282 yards. Another obvious offensive force to be reckoned with was pro bowl wide-out, Andre Johnson. Johnson came back strong from injuries that plagued him in 2007 and part of 2008. His numbers were impressive and his presence on the field when the Texans had the ball was definitely felt by his team and Houston fans. Adding to the offensive success of the Texans was pro bowl tight end Owen Daniels. Daniels became a number two option for quarterback Matt Schaub and completed a break-out 2008 season with 70 receptions for 862 yards with a trip to the 2009 Pro Bowl. On defense, without question, Mario Williams’ performance continued to prosper, amassing 12 sacks and 53 tackles in 15 games (all starts). This effort included three sacks and one forced fumble in the Texans' first ever Monday Night Football game on December 1, 2008. For his efforts, Williams was selected for his first Pro Bowl as a starter. Last but certainly not least, the consistent play of middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans helped the Texans defense hold back opposing offenses throughout the AFC South. Ryans was a 2007 pro bowl selection and continues to man the middle of the Texans defense.
