The short answer is no, no and no.

I'll be very surprised if Edge is not in South Beach next year.

It makes no sense to throw multi millions at a RB with that kind of mileage.

I don't particularly want to see the Texans pursue James. I'd much rather see them target a back in the draft.

Id be happy with Derick Blaylock, or Travis Henry if the price is right. EJ is gonna cost way too much money.

Local stories say you are both wrong. Edge has recently said he wants to stay here with Manning and Marvin. South Beach is a mess and will be for a long while, Texans are in better shape. The deal with Marvin is just about done and Edge is next. Peyton is making a ton, but it is actually less than last year against the cap and the cap goes up next year. Besides, without all the support, edge goes to a one dimensional team and he doesn't put up near the stats. One of the best things he does is block for manning in Blitz situations, w/o a Manning he is reduced to a runner, and Dominic Rhodes and others have proven, if you just want a runner, they can do that. If edge wants the HOF and a true legend, he'll be in Indy for next 7 years. besides with the Harrison deal all but done, they'll hang the "Franchise" tag on him next year and either get lots of #1 picks for him thereafter or he'll re-up.

Now here is a true statement and yet another reason the Texans shouldn't even think about making a run at James--he benefits tremendously from being a secondary threat on a pass happy team.

Not true. Early on in Manning's career, Edge was the real reason Indy became a power in the NFL.

You mean early like in 1998 as a rookie when Manning had more yards passing than Carr will this year or any of the years since then when Manning had over 4000 yds passing every year? There is clearly a reciprocal relationship between a running game helping a QB and a passing game helping a RB, but there really doesn't seem to be an argument IMO that Manning is better as a QB than James as a RB, that Indy's offense is built around Manning, not James and that James has benefited more from Manning than vice versa.

well, im not sure about that. manning had marshall faulk in his rookie year when he struggled, and they won 3 games (i believe faulk was the best RB in the NFL at that time) but in mannings second year when they got EJ, i think it was just as much manning as it was edge

Default Edgerrin James

Did I spell that wrong? Next year he is a free agent. Should the Texans bother or is he too old? Would be great to get an established runner with a few miles left in the tank to groom a draftee than constantly have to worry about the run game. Carr and Johnson are hooking up great right now. Can't wait to see how good it gets when the opposition is scared of our run too.

I've heard that if he goes anywhere other than Indy it would be Miami. Wants to return home.

Much of what this guy says about Rudi Johnson, applies to James--Johnson just has a whole lot more tread left on the tires:

Quote:
You can't open the vault for Rudi Johnson. You can't declare the Bengals Bank & Trust a Rudi subsidiary. Wallets are not made to be lived in. Not even by Rudi, the hardest-working man in show business. If Rudi wants $6 million a year, the Bengals should drive him to the airport and wish him well.

It's not about Rudi. I like Rudi. Who doesn't?

The man is 220 pounds of purpose. When he's not working, he's working. If anybody else starts riding that stationary bike behind the Bengals bench, I get a little ticked off. That's Rudi's bike.

But it's business. And business says NFL running backs are easily replaced.

He does conveniently leave Emmitt Smith & Terrell Davis out of his analysis, but both those teams built great OL's as well.
