Give it time, I think atleast Stewart will declare. Felix Jones appears to be a fairly sure thing to declare as well with both likely to go in the first round.

If we go into the season with Darius Walker and Chris Taylor fighting for the RB job, I'm not going to have confidence in our running game. I like what I saw out of Walker, but I would still rather draft a guy
Itws not so much as Taylor being the savior, but the fact that we have major holes and limited resources. If we had the #2, we could get our franchise back for the next 4 years, but its hard with the OL, CB,OLB, and C/G holes

I doubt Green is on the Texans next year. If not by the team's choice, then by his own like Moulds last year.

I don't think we'll seen Green wearing a Texans uniform next year. Just my opinion.

Green was guaranteed about $6.5 mil and according to houstonprofootball.com He was paid about $4,255,280 and so that would mean he is still owed $2,244,720 That would be that cap hit for next year for him to not even be playing versus just over $5 mil to play. The only reason Green will not be in a Texans uni next year is if they can sign a FA rb like Michael Turner, have a large chunk guarunteed but have it small for the first year as far as cap figure goes.

You're assuming that this isn't a cartlidge dealy ? And what are you basing that asumption on ?

I critized the deal out of hand when it was made. Why...quick fix grey beards rarely, if ever, work. Period. Mr. McNair would of got more bang for his money if he would of plied it up in front of reliant an set it on fire. At least we could of got a fair wehner roast out of the fire. He was a rare athlete five years ago. Not any more. It was a freak hit, but ahmen is DONE. Pay him five million for what ?
Chop the dead wood and move on.

Jones says he might be staying at ark next year

I think Stewart will also be going considering he is said to be a high pick next to mendenhall and of course Dmac

Dude opposite day was only cool in elementary school. Seriously man... Walker is a 3rd down back. Turner and Jones are much better than that. Taylor is a guy who had one good game against a horrible defense and then blew out his knee before he had a chance to show he was really that good. It was almost an Echemanduesque performance.. only it was against a bottom feeder defense. Turner is going to be a stud and he's been watching the best in the business for the last 3 years. Jones has shown he's a quality runner. Fargas is talented but I think he's the worst of those 3.

Walker = Davis. Lets not try to get too much out of our 3rd down back this time.

Mike

Especially after what he did in the Sun Bowl today. Stewart was an absolute animal breaking out the long TD runs.
