Because Marshall Faulk and GMC asked, let us call our shot and answer that query as it pertains to your Houston Texans.

For Week 13, Marshall Faulk wants to know:

To be GMC Professional Grade you must know your craft inside and out. On every team, there must be an established veteran presence, that with the work that he does, it doesn’t really show up in the stat sheet. It could be a veteran DB who give that jersey pull or a nice arm lock, so the receiver can’t catch the ball. Or an offensive lineman who’s crafty enough to get the hold real tightly to where the refs won’t call it, but the back, he’s off for a big run. Now, look at your team and analyze. Tell me, who’s that crafty veteran on your team. And if you’re really paying attention, what’s the signature move that he uses?

There really isn't much competition here in my opinion.  The answer is J.J. Watt.  The signature move that he uses?  This man defies the known laws of physics to bend time and space to his will.  He has been able to accomplish feats that no other human has in the history of the NFL.

Even in practice, Watt is doing things that simply amaze us mere mortals.  Watch this video from The Mothership where he leaps up high to make a one-handed catch.

Do you agree?  Or is there another veteran player on the roster you feel is the craftiest at their trade?  Maybe you feel it's Arian Foster's ability to spin poetry from his shoes as he glides through defenders.  What about Andre Johnson and his history of amazing performances through the years?  Could it be the incredible catches made by DeAndre Hopkins?  Perhaps the things happening in the shadows of the secondary from Kareem Jackson or Johnathan Joseph merit consideration.  How about the incredible punting skills of Shane Lechler in flipping the field to the Texans' advantage?  Does Brian Cushing terrorize the opponent enough to be considered for this honor?

Well, it's time to vote and share your thoughts on the matter.  What say you, BRB?
