Nevermind... That was probably Chris Brown, not to be confused with kicker Kris Brown or girl beater Chris Brown w/ Rhianna (Hey GIRL!!!).
Chris Brown throws like I imagine Rhianna would.

Unlike Chris Brown, Rhianna can take a hit.

Ouch. Bad joke! Domestic violence isn't a joking matter.

Try to move him to the PS...which allows us to add Pleasant, which IMO is a smart move. If something were to happen to either Manning or Quin (or both) then that means it's Demps and ????? to be depth for Demps. So they have Pleasant as an emergency option.

And yes, this serves as a way for Kubiak and Phillips to put every secondary player "on notice" that things better shape up or people *could* get demoted or start sharing snaps.

That's my two cents.

Pleasant seems a bit old. He did sell the first t-shirt in rock and roll history so he can't be much worse than demps.

If we are going to bring on Pleasant, then I can understand letting Grimes go but the selfishness of me would like to see us find a way to get him back because I think if given the right chance, that guy is going to play in this league for a while.

There's a PS roster spot open.
I think they will put him there once he clears waiver.

Throw in my two cents also. Pretty soon we will solve this deficit thing! Smart move on texans part as we should get Grimes thru waivers.

Default Re: Grimes released

This was a no brainer. We're gearing up for a playoff run and entering the home stretch.. how valuable is a 4th string rookie RB going to be? We need more DBs on this roster than running backs who'll never touch the ball and while I think Grimes can be serviceable and does have talent, look at the position.. It's a position of strength for us and a position that can easily be replaced. Even if Grimes doesn't clear waivers who cares, we'll have the entire offseason to replace him. You can pick up players like him or better late in the draft every year. RBs are are a dime a dozen and he was more than expendible at this stage in the season.

We needed Grimes until Tate was back and good to go.

Now, we need DBs more.

Good move.

Good move.
Overall, I like how we managed our depth.

It wasn't easy to replace Winston, Briesel, and Dreessen right off the bat.
The signing of Harris was big, especially considering we lost Butler and then Newton for a while.

Caldwell injured, Caldwell out. Ben Jones and Brandon Brooks in.
Ben Tate injured. Forsett up.

Holliday didn't pan out. We had secondary plan in KMart.

Cushing out after losing Demeco.
We survived with Sharpton coming back and Barrett Rudd.
It could have been much much worse.

Cody out, Jamison out.
Crick entered so we can sustain there, too.

Brooks Reed out, here comes Mercilus.

JJo under the weather, Ball sustained best he could.

McCain out, in come Harris.

And we have Routt waiting in the wing, dying to play at home.

Now come Eddie Pleasant, as Demps is having a nightmare, and Quin nursing an injury. Keo's play has been solid, he's not exposed to bad plays so far.

It's not easy to win in this league.
Sometimes I wonder what can please the fans.

I mean, I haven't even listed all the injuries, all the stuffs that guys have been playing through.

For me, it has been very gratifying to watch these guys fighting so hard; I am absolutely proud to call them my boys.

I intend to enjoy their success further without much worrying about any shortcoming.

It's time to ramp it up, Texans fans!

It is considered salary. It is a giant pay cut for most of the players. Link
