I was discussing the Texans with some of my friends and family and why not try to trade Carr to the Bears? They aren't sure of Grossman and Carr would be an insurance policy (like Harrington in Miami). Plus, see if they wanna unload one of their runningbacks. Benson is suppose to be unhappy there and I'm sure he wouldn't mind coming back home to Texas. I wouldn't even mind having Thomas Jones in the backfield either. Its just a thought and I wanted to see what othere people thought?

I'm not sure I would want Cedric Benson in Texas among such class acts as Ramonce Taylor, Aaron Ross, Aaron Harris, Tarrell Brown, and Reggie McNeal.

Ya thats true, I would rather have Jones here personally, just everyone else I've talked to about it said Benson.

Not going to happen. The Bears don't want a $5 million a year insurance policy at QB, and they aren't going to give up Cedric Benson and take that cap hit, not that I really want him here anyways.

Why is everyone so obsessed with Benson?

The guy is overrated, has a ton of miles on his tires, and none of his teammates like him. Like someone else said, if we were going to go after a Bears RB, we should go after Thomas Jones.

Benson played for UT so he doesn't qualify to play for the Texans.

I agree about Benson. The guy was good at Texas but he has baggage. Even if you discount the baggage, I just don't want any guy who is 'unhappy' when he is playing on a 13 or 14 win team that has home field throughout the playoffs. Any player that is unhappy in that situation is by definition NOT A TEAM PLAYER and not someone I want on our team.

I think Dayne, Lundy, and Taylor is a pretty good corps of running backs with a good measure of upside.

Sloan Thomas played for our practice squad for a year. after all, he 'deserved' the practice squad relegation after leading the Texans in receptions and yardage in preseason of Year 3. All kidding aside, Benson would probably cost a helluva lot more than just David Carr.

Most ridiculous thing I have ever heard.

I was actually discussing this very idea with a friend of mine from chicago. The deal we threw around was Houston trades Carr to Chicago for the Chicago's 3rd rounder in the 2007 draft plus running back Adrian Peterson.

How great would it be to have 2 Adrian Petersons. LOL. They should wear similar numbers and both trot out onto the field.

That would be too confusing for all the drunks at the game, they would think they are seeing double and stop buying beers.

Not that I think there's any chance of this (trade) happening, but explain yourself. How does Benson have a "ton of miles on his tires"? He only has 211 NFL carries (compared to 1340 for Jones.) Also, why would you consider it likely that the Bears would be interested in giving up the 10th leading rusher in the league and their most consistent offensive player?

I think people are interested in Benson because he is a high caliber prospect that hasn't had a real opportunity to prove himself in the NFL. He's young and hasn't taken a beating from pro defenses yet. He seems to fit a Kubiak style as far as not dancing around in the backfield, never having negative yard plays. I don't see it happening, but if we could convince Chicago to give us Benson and turn him into our workhorse I think that would be a great thing. We could bring in a speedy playmaking back as well and have a potent one-two punch (potentially.)

Hey...they're sippers what do you expect.

Should be edited to read "All TU players are not necessarily qualified to play for the Texans".

Lose Cedric Benson for another QB that they'd be unsure of?

Don't see that happening.

While I don't necessarily agee w/ you, I can see why you would question some of the above mentioned players' character....But what has Aaron Ross done for you to question him?:stirpot:

There is no need to try to shed a bad light on the Thorpe Award Winner. He is a standup man and citizen who has overcome a lot just to play the game.:ok:

I think he was trying to refer to an accident that happened over the Christmas break. It's a little confusing to me and there's not a lot of information (that I've found). Of course, I was out of town and the UT news wasn't flying as freely. It sounds medical rather than criminal. You know how it is with some people: if you have an accident or medical condition and you play for Texas, you're not a "class act."

That would be a great deal for us. I think the original AP is a good running back. He's been productive when given a chance in Chicago. The problem is that no team is going to give us a 3rd, much less a 3rd and a player.

Right about now, David Carr probably looks great to the Bears as they are
imploding tonight vs. GB, thanks to their current QB.
Grossman is throwing piks like there is no tomorrow. And there won't be once they get in the playoffs, if Grossman continues playing like this.

Why does everyone want a RB so bad...we have much bigger needs.
