The 1st Annual 'TOROs' Awards

Posted Feb 26, 2016

The Oscars might be taking most of the nation’s spotlight, but our digital media team has launched the first annual edition of “The Toros” for the best 2015 Texans stuff.

The Oscars might be taking most of the nation’s spotlight, but our digital media team has launched the first annual edition of “The TOROs” for the best 2015 Texans stuff (we say ‘stuff’ because we’ll be adjusting the categories to suit our needs).

Best performance by a quarterback in a supporting role
While Brandon Weeden coming off the bench to beat the Colts in Indy was historic, T.J. Yates coming off the bench to beat the then-undefeated Bengals on Monday Night Football was unforgettable. The fact that Yates did it for a team that traded him in a place where he had his personal best performance four years earlier, puts this one over the top.



Best Tweet
After DeAndre Hopkins torched the Jets in the Texans' follow-up win after the Bengals game he put previously perilous Revis Island in air quotes and our web guru, Eric San Inocencio reminded people of it the next day.


Best Interview
This was a crowded category including an ear-opening Deep Slant conversation with Oday Aboushi on Texans All-Access. But a ‘comedy’ took top honors as Mr. Mumbles aka Drew Dougherty had some fun at Texans Cheerleader tryouts.


Best Celebration
Kareem Jackson high stepped into the endzone with a pick-6 that sealed the deal on the AFC South Championship.



Best Player not named J.J. Watt or DeAndre Hopkins
Whitney Mercilus signed a contract extension in the offseason and exploded for a career-best 12 sacks.


Best Picture (actual photo)
John Harris’ reaction to Hopkins’ TD catch at Cincinnati sparked a photo shop campaign that went semi-viral.


Best Victory
Monday Night Football win in Cincinnati.



Best Post Game Speech
Bill O’Brien getting emotional after the Texans knocked off Indy was terrific, but the “sweats on the plane” reward for beating Cinci and the ensuing celebration was marvelous.


Best performance by a coach in a supporting role
Mike Vrabel was entertaining and inspiring on Hard Knocks and he did terrific work as Mercilus had an amazing year and Benardrick McKinney blossomed into a productive starter on the No. 3 defense in the NFL. The entire corps including Brian Cushing, Jadeveon Clowney and John Simon came along very nicely after the rough start.
