This week, Marshall Faulk wants to know:
I think the easy answer to that question for your Houston Texans is Ryan Fitzpatrick for reasons we have discussed here ad nauseam. This week, however, I'm going to go with Whitney Mercilus. With Jadeveon Clowney out for the next four to six weeks, the Texans' 2012 first round pick steps back into the starting lineup, and all eyes will be on him.
Will Mercilus prove himself to be an indispensable part of the rotation at outside linebacker and a key cog in Houston's pass rush? Or will he play himself out of a future in Houston under a new coaching regime that has no tie to him?
