Default Re: Texans lose both S Alan Ball and RB Justin Forsett to Jaguars

You can all overlook Allan Ball if you want .... But he and Braman were the best players on special teams last season , both consistently making plays. Without either of them , a piss poor ST unit is leaps and bounds worse.

And he did play pretty well when given the chance in coverage too .... made significant improvement from the preseason to the end of the year.


Replacable ? Yes .... But I'd liked to have seen him stay just for his ST play.

We have Devin Meggett on the reserve/future list.

I actually like him a little more than Grimes; he's just smaller; however I think he also blocked quite well in college.

He looked about the same to me in PS, just that Grimes had a few more holes from what I saw.

We'll see what he can do next pre-season.
Hopefully, he gained some more muscles without losing agility.

A little bowling bowl might not be too bad.
There's some good prospects in the late round, too.
And we have a few comp picks.

Never mind, Meggett is on the Colts reserve/future list.

Yeah, there are quite a few of them graded between round 4 and 7.
Big backs, fast back, take your pick.

Default Re: Texans lose both S Alan Ball and RB Justin Forsett to Jaguars

The Texans probably need to draft a rookie just in case there is a market for Tate next off-season, but finding another Forsett is pretty easy. The Texans signed him late enough last year and there will be more veteran rbs available.

I don't want to turn this into a draft thread. But I really like A&M's Christine Michael for the Texans. I know about his injuries and his combine mishap. I just think this guy has NFL RB written all over him.

He was then. The Broncos had that year when everyone they put back there to carry the rock got hurt and Peyton Hillis broke out bigtime. He was like an 18 wheeler running out of this scheme (so much bigger than everyone else they had at the time) but the important thing was he seemed to see the holes and then tear into them. Really looked to be suited to the one-cut-and-go idea. Not sure if he could still be that guy but he's never had that kind of success anywhere else and it was in (basically) this offense.

Marcus Lattimore would be the best value in middle rounds. By the time he's 100%, Tate's contract would be up.

That was his rookie season. He could easily play FB for us and has good hands as well. Nice flexibility. Should not be an expensive player.

Yeah, but what if Foster or Tate get hurt early in the season? They need somebody that's healthy now, not a year from now. Although, that could be a great value pick if you knew he would return to his pre-injury self and got him on the 3rd day of the Draft. When is he projected to start playing again?

^^^^ This!

I agree with this and remember Ball making a number of good plays on ST's.

Now we have more holes to fill!

Don't they have Grimes too? They could pick up Winston for the left side and become the Bizarro Texans.

What's going to suck, is that I don't think we utilized Forsette as well as we should have. But I've felt that way since he flashed in Seattle. He's not an every down back, but he's got all the talent to be a Danny Woodhead kind of guy, a poor man's Reggie Bush.

When you think of a backfield with Arian, Casey, & Forsette you'd think you can create whatever kind of match up nightmare you want. At least I do. But Casey didn't get one carry, Forsett didn't get 5 balls thrown his way, & Arian was rarely used for anything other than a check down.

I'm all about being conservative & protecting the ball while throwing for 4000 yards and all, but I think we had enough weapons to do what we wanted, when we wanted, & move the chains.

Casey had .... One carry in 2011 for 11 yards and one carry in 2012 for 6 yards.



I get your point ...
