I think Karim was re-signed last week. He ran 4 times for 21 yards.

The Pats have this pretty good RB on their practice squad, maybe we should snag him!

Tate obviously feels that he has shown enough this season as that is the only reason he didnt go on IR the first time. What a clown. Dont let the door hit you on the way out.

Karim still on the team. He was resigned when the Texans cut all of those players for their bad hotel behavior. Tate is McFadden... Great RB at times, but made of glass.

Welp.....
In my post in the Keenum thread, I mentioned the most common and likely ligament injury to the thumb would be the ulnar collateral ligament, and if so, gripping the football would be the concern..........obviously, it is this ligament, and it is the problem. http://www.texanstalk.com/forums/sho...postcount=1336

What? A clown that played through four broken ribs?

Tate showed more heart than the majority of our team did this year. Sure he lashed out at fans when we went through a stretch where an injury to our long-time QB was cheered and the team was (rightfully) booed for poor performance.

Whatever. People need to understand that players get frustrated too and sometimes they say dumb stuff too. Kind of like the dumb stuff that you just said. To act like Tate is a bad apple when he put more than enough on the line for the team this year is a joke.

It means that he was OK to play with broken ribs in order to show enough to try to make more in free agency but now is not able to play with the same injury. But mostly it was a "wishy washy" joke which I thought was pretty clear. My bad. I'm personally glad I'll never see Ben Tate carry the ball for the Texans ever again.

Who cares really? Seriously if anyone can get mad about Schaub starting or Tate shutting it down at this point then I give up. They are obviously better, more invested fans than I am.

Two more games and the string will be played out. I don't need to see anymore of Tate because he's going to play for someone else next year. I don't need to see anymore of Keenum because he's at best playing to be a backup somewhere in the league next year.

It just doesn't matter.

SOP around here. Any ex-Texan, or player assumed to be an ex-Texan in the near future, is either a talentless ***hole who never should have been in the league or a washed up has-been, also likely to now be an ***hole.
