Off the Turf with Scurf: Chris Myers

Posted by Nick Scurfield on January 4, 2013 – 6:02 pm

Chris MyersEpisode 18 of “Off the Turf with Scurf,” my semi-weekly podcast here on HoustonTexans.com, features Texans center Chris Myers.

Myers, an eighth-year veteran, has started all 80 games since joining the Texans in a trade from the Denver Broncos in 2008. The two-time team captain was named to his second consecutive Pro Bowl this season. In the podcast, he discusses the Texans are looking forward to the playoffs despite their 1-3 finish to the season; the perspective he gained from playing on a 13-3 Denver Broncos team that lost in the AFC Championship Game as a rookie in 2005; how the Texans dubbed this Monday “Swagga Back Monday”; the team’s renewed energy level and focus in practice this week; the playoff atmosphere at Reliant Stadium for the Wild Card game vs. Cincinnati last year; his teammates Arian Foster, Andre Johnson and J.J. Watt; defensive tackle Geno Atkins and the rest of the Bengals’ defense; the recent criticism befalling Texans quarterback Matt Schaub; the Texans’ offensive line rotations at right guard and right tackle; being named to the Pro Bowl last week along with Texans left guard Wade Smith and left tackle Duane Brown; and his wife, Jenny, and their two daughters, Makenna, 3, and Caylin, 1..
