Duane Brown has a lot on his mind about Houston's food, shopping and the local rap scene. In an interview that took place before the season started but was recently posted on the men's lifestyle website Grungy Gentleman, the Houston Texans offensive tackle also expressed a rosy outlook about the teams chances to make the Super Bowl.

"The biggest season we've had yet," he said, when asked what we can expect from him and the Texans.

Oops.

Among favorite places to eat, Brown chose Eddie V's for crab cakes and bananas foster, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House for fried lobster tempura and steak, and Backstreet Cafe for brunch.

As for where he shops, Brown stated that "The Galleria is always good for high end shopping. Most of my street wear I order online or buy in LA and NYC."

In terms of the local rap scene, Brown said that he listens to many Houston rappers, including UGK, Slim Thug, Paul Wall, Scarface and Devin the Dude.

Brown also spoke about his charitable endeavors, the toughest stadium to play in, the hardest player to go up against and the Texans' biggest prankster, Brian Cushing. The full interview is available on the Grungy Gentleman.
