I'm sure they'd trade him if they could get some value for him, yes... Some of us are surprised he made the team this year.

Gado is a joke...Cook out rushed him last week and the Texans have zero backs that can make anyone miss when Green goes down....When your RB's are Dayne and Cook and Gado doesn't even touch the ball...well, he's worthless.

I agree whole-haertedly. Unfortunately our last option is Darius Walker. He is not ready to be thrown to the wolves but I highly recommend that he be brought up from the practice squad to get a couple of reps a game. My faith in Green staying healthy has dwindled to nil and Dayne is not an every down back (if he is even an any down back). Walker needs some real game experience, let him make his mistakes and get ripped on the side line, but only allow a couple of carries a game to prevent his mistakes from being disastrous.

I thought Mike played pretty good yesterday, we need to get some RB's in the offseason though. If only Taylor didn't get hurt in training camp. I would have liked to have seen him this year.

I must have missed something yesterday. I thought Mike had a strong outing yesterday. He defended the pass well but run blocking doesn't seem to be his strong suit. Schaub was having to evade rushers from the left side but for the most part, the pocket stayed in tact.

my concern is that instead of seeing what he can do this year developmentally speaking, any sort of draft decision would be based on what Chris Taylor can "potentially" do. I would have loved to have had a year of him as a backup (as opposed to last year as a practice squad guy for all but one game.

I expect next year's RBs to include AGreen, CTaylor, and a 3rd or 4th round pick. I think it's very unlikely that we spend huge amounts of money on Michael Turner. I also doubt spending our only premium draft pick (1st rounder) on a RB. I think the staff would be very happy with CTaylor and AGreen as the primary backs and maybe a smallish rookie with very good elusiveness (something like a Leon Washington, Lorenzo Booker type). Again, I think it's clear the coaching staff has a very high opinion of Chris Taylor and he'll be given the chance to win the job.
