It's my fault that my posts are misconstrued often.
On the other hand, I can't keep reminding people not to fantasize and to make things up.

Is there anywhere that I said anything bad about Tate?
Or about not wanting him on the roster?

The fact remains that the Texans just need Foster to stay healthy and some guy(s) to give him a breather now and then.

Obviously, you would want each position to be as stacked as possible in case of an injury. A healthy Tate is definitely better than any of the other guys; that's a given.

Tate showing flashes of his one good season. I'm glad to see it, I really am. Still though, he was nothing for two of his three seasons. If he comes back this year, that means he's still only batting 500.

Yes, a healthy Tate is better than all the rest trying to make the team, but the question is will he stay healthy. I'll not be happy with Tate until he shows up for most of the season and replicates his one good year.

I am not that impressed with Karim or the UDFAs. I don't see an Arian Foster. More like Darius Walkers and Samkon Gados. I think the Texans would love to get a vet back like Derrick Ward off waivers. I doubt that happens. Let's just hope that Foster and Tate can collectively stay healthy.
Taters?

Watching Tate today I'll admit I may have forgotten how special he can be...

So we'll just have to find a way to keep 4 runningbacks. Tate is as fragile as Schaub.

Tate is another Sharpton situation, love to have him healthy a season especially in a possible SB season but....you just do not know what you are getting. I agree 76 that Foster is the man and we basically need a relief for him. I see Karim as a replacement for Forsett and much faster. If we can get a decent pick I'd do it and go with Wood. If we cannot, Tate remains and we pray for his health as we do for rain, daily.

The WR corps disturbs me a bit also with Hopson still in day 1 of protocols. As of today, we seem to offer MS same weapons as last season. Posey is a slight plus until we know what we have and Jean looked good today. He could give Matt a bit of reassurance if he can win his QB's trust and allow Hopson and Posey time to get healthier. I wished our LBs were this deep.

I become more undecided as the pre-season continues. Johnson and Wood looking great so far.

most definitely. we only carried the two last year (plus casey), and they really seemed to wear down at the end of the season. we run too many 2 and 3 tightend packages to be thin here, and i doubt griffin would clear waivers.

as for runningback, wood appears to be the guy for me. i cant trust dennis johnson's hands, and kerim has been pedestrian IMO. wood seems like the best fit for our offense based on his style of running and his strengths.

I think Karim not getting caries in the regular offense means the Texans have made a decision. also, since both runners ran through the Dallas defense, not as good for either player as it seems.


Foster
Tate
Karim

PS woods

They would have to carry four RBs for that to happen IMO. I'm thinking Karim makes the final roster before Woods. Stanger things have happened though. I would just really hate to lose Woods.
