Houston Rockets forward Shane Battier has given Gary Kubiak a gameplan for the Texans. Throw the ball to Andre Johnson on every play. “I tell you what, he’s a sharp guy," Kubiak said of Battier.
But the Texans won't be throwing to Andre ever play. But whoever is the quarterback for the AFC in the Pro Bowl will get the chance to throw the ball to Andre.
Andre has been named a starter for the AFC in the Pro Bowl, the third time he has been selected to earn a trip to Hawaii.
And Toxic Talk has become the home for Andre Johnson man-love. Somewhere in Bristol, Connecticut, the four-letter network is having to amp its Brett Favre man-love to keep up.
But today, Andre is not alone in getting love from this Toxic Texan fan.
Mario Williams has also been named a starter for the AFC in the Pro Bowl. It's the first time ever that two Texans were named as starters to the Pro Bowl and only the second time that two Texans were named to the Pro Bowl. Aaron Glenn and Gary Walker both made the Pro Bowl in 2002, Glenn as a starter.
But that's not all. Matt Schaub has again been nominated for FedEx Air NFL Player of the Week. However, I don't have my hopes up for him winning. If 400+ passing yards didn't win it last week (the fan voting named Jay Cutler the winner) but you can still vote for him at http://www.nfl.com/partner?partnerType=players-air-and-ground as he is on the ballot for the 4th time this season.
Also, Steve Slaton is once again on the ballot for NFL Rookie of the Week. He lost the fan voting last week to Denver's Ryan Clady. The Broncos really brought the vote last week. You can vote for Slaton at http://www.nfl.com/partner?partnerType=Rookies as he is on the ballot for the 7th time this season.
This week also brings us a new nomination as Gary Kubiak has been nominated for NFL Coach of the Week. You can vote for Kubiak at http://www.nfl.com/partner?partnerType=coaches unless you are Iggy. Marvin Lewis is also on the ballot.
And that is what is happening in Texan land. Winners will be named Friday.
