Sprint Game Ball Of The Week: Rashad Butler

This post is sponsored by Sprint.

As the fancy branding indicates, we've got ourselves a new sponsor/running feature here on BRB. Each week, we'll be awarding a fake game ball to one of your Houston Texans. Needless to say, this initial post would have been far more fun to write after Week One or Week Two.

After Week Three? After this abomination? I should probably just award the game ball to alcohol, the cause of and the solution to all of life's problems.

Instead of taking the easy and/or bitter way out, however, let's give the pretend game ball to Rashad Butler for stepping in for Duane Brown and doing a serviceable job against DeMarcus Ware. Ware did have three (3) sacks, but they were mostly of the coverage variety, rather than the smoked-off-the-line variety. Not exactly worthy of enshrinement in Canton, but certainly not a total embarrassment. it's come to that. The game ball goes to an offensive lineman who yielded three sacks. Pretty good summary of what transpired yesterday, I'd say.
