Is it just me or was it a surprise Harrison made it at safety. I thought he was a cut according to many.

Sure, but why not just go tackle elibible... I'm pretty sure that Butler, Frye, and probably even Salaam are quicker, more agile, and all except for Salaam are better blockers.

They could. But once in a blue moon, they actually throw the ball to Bruener ...and he catches it. (that's the blue moon part)

We'll be looking to sign bodies at running back after the 2nd or 3rd game. Mark my words.

We may be signing them before then. I'm going to be very surprised if there aren't a few of waiver wire guys brought in, which would mean guys currently on the 53 (actually 54 at the moment) man roster being cut.

I think IR might be a little dramatic but anyone think Chris Brown might be headed for the PUP? Maybe he comes back strong or maybe we just prolong the inevitable cut.

I would hope if he doesn't pass muster, he get cut. There's bound to be someone on the waiver wire that brings more to the table than BadBackBrown

Default Re: Texans presser

I was surprised a Maddox getting the axe. Just doesn't make sense to keep old fart Zgonina and cut a younger DT. To me, Maddox had the best burst off the ball of all the DTs on the team. Also, the team keeps Petey Faggins for..another..year!! Don't quite understand that one, but..

On a positive note, Deljuan Robinson made the team. Think he deserved to with his play. I would have preferred to keep Colvin over Weaver, but that's not a big issue since both pretty much suck right now. Hope Kevis Coley, Mark Simmons, Leron McCoy, Nading, and Boyd get added to practice squad. Hope Chris Brown gets added to the waiver wire.

Many of these moves are in anticipation that the younger player has room to get better. Probably more of a question if Maddox or Zgoninia would be better in the short term.

I bet Indy signs him. (Colvin) They wanted him before, but we offered him more. He grew up and played College in Purdue (I think) too. He looked absolutely horrible this preseason, but he was transitioning to a new position and recovering from an injury. I don't expect him to do anything this year, but crazier things have happened and we know that at least one point in his career, he could play at a very high level.
