No higher than a 5th.

Friday night RB say Tate

White/ Tate/Slaton is not a bad trio.

It just depends on how much capital that Smithiak want to spend fixing the run game. The Tacks wont take a 5th for White from the Texans and have to face White twice a year.

That whole thread was based on a hypothetical statement by ESPN Insider that the Tacks may not need White, considering Johnson's success........and the Texans could use an RB like White. There was never more presented than that.

TheRealJoker
04-15-2010, 07:10 PM
Hard to tell how much the weight loss affected his ability as a short yardage back last season. It seems the Tacks rode the hot hand (and for good reason) which took away White's carries.

Gotcha. I know alot of the fans on this board dogged him out in that thread but I think he is a decent short yardage back.

While I'm at it Cloak, I really appreciate all the information medical and otherwise that you post over here at Texanstalk. You are one of the many reasons that this is the absolute best Texans bb. No contest.

Though as CNNND said, it was just a hypothetical, I wouldn't mind giving up a 6th or possibly a 5th for him. I think he would respond proactively to getting traded to a divisional rival for a late round pick (from 2nd rounder to 5th/6th, if that was me I'd be pissed) and would really want to prove a point and play with heat.

White's a punk, a Ron Dayne 2.0. I've never been a fan of trading draft picks and damn sure not a fan of just another fatass RB who fans think can get that extra yard. If we're going to spend a pick on a RB, do it in the draft. Younger, cheaper (likely) and eager to get to work.

BTW, on winning 2/3 more games with him:

Not on my watch

FWIW in 4 seasons in the league White has scored 24 touchdowns, that is more than any Texans RB has ever had in there Career.

White can find the endzone, that is proven fact. He did in college, he did it in the pros he could do it for us.

Not really, DD/DW was a good back but if you want a goal-line/short yardage runner it isn't close.

infantrycak

Not really, DD/DW was a good back but if you want a goal-line/short yardage runner it isn't close.

Well I disagree with that assessment and would say DD was better. He was great in small space (much better than White), great initial burst (much better than White) and solid body lean (with short thick legs) (give White some edge here) to almost always pick an extra yard or two to finish off runs. And he did that behind an O-line vastly inferior to the Titans'. IMO White just lives off his O-line. And the Titans realize that or they would have used him more last year and wouldn't be contemplating letting him go.

I believe that White will also be a good runner in our offense vs. the style that Tenn had plus he is most likely a better pass blocker.

I'm genuinely not interested in seeing Lendale White in a Texans uniform. I think we're better off with Arian Foster myself. I believe that if we add a RB in the first round like Mathews to Slaton, Foster, Moats, Johnson, and Henry then we have all the backs we need. If we wait and pick up somebody like Tate we still likely are set at RB.

Trading for Lendale White would be like Stacy Mack 2.0

Blazing Arrow
04-19-2010, 12:01 PM
He is an 1100 yard back and almost took the tds for one season he is a 4th easy. He would make Slaton a moster.

05-28-2010, 04:17 PM
Perhaps a bit more insight (although not much) into the reasons.

Update at 1:41 p.m.: White will be released from Seattle. The reason for his release comes as the team decided that the level of commitment wasn't there.

Now, there are several reasons the decision is significant. This was a player Carroll had history with, having coached him at USC. This is also someone whose commitment was a question in his time at Tennessee.

White was a restricted FA. So no signing bonus.

And to think some fans on our board wanted the Texans to trade for White. Yikes. I'm sure that Jeff Fisher and Mike Reinfeldt knew nothing about this impending suspension before trading LenWhale. Not.

A funny line (at least to me) I read in ESPN's report...

White had lost more than 45 pounds last year, saying that when he stopped drinking tequila the pounds starting falling off. He was down to 220.

How much tequila could he really have been drinking? That's insane...

Its not the Tequila. While that certainly adds calories the real damage comes from all the greasy food you eat to sop up the alcohol in your stomach. No tequila=no additional greasy food=weight loss. I imagine he worked out as well, so that helped.

In order to make up for the loss of losing CB Dunta Robinson the Texans are showing interest in Nnamdi Asomugha. The Colts, fearful that Robert Mathis may not be able to make it through a whole season are said to be talking to the Washington Redskins about disgruntled DT ALbert Haynesworth

I agree with you a 100%. We should go after Nnamdi Asomugha, that way we could use him for a trade with the titans and to get Chris Johnson since he is upset with his current contract.

In order to make up for the loss of losing CB Dunta Robinson the Texans are showing interest in Nnamdi Asomugha. The Colts, fearful that Robert Mathis may not be able to make it through a whole season are said to be talking to the Washington Redskins about disgruntled DT ALbert Haynesworth

Man this is easy. Now I see how Justice does this!!!

IF you are being Justice, you then have to take jabs at Rick Smith. Hurl insults because he fired your friend the beer vendor. Nothin like some childish pop shots from a guy who is supose to be a "respected journalist".

I think the term "respected journalist" is a misnomer these days. Especially when talking about peter king mike florio richard justice jay mariotti skip bayless colin cowherd pete prisco bill simmons john mcclain mike lombardi jason whitlock jim rome . . .
