Default Adrian Peterson scenarios, interesting!

The end of this season could be deja vu for the Texans!

Week 17 we play Cleveland! A game which could be labeled "The Adrian Peterson" bowl.

Look at the BAD right now and who needs a RB:

Oakland (0-5)? NO - Lamont Jordan
Tampa Bay(1-4)? NO - Cadillac Williams
Detroit(1-5)? NO - Kevin Jones
Miami(1-5)? NO - Ronnie Brown
Buffalo(2-4)? NO - Willis McGahee

Green Bay(1-4)? YES
Cleveland(1-4)? YES
Tennessee(1-5)? YES, and Bud Adams would LOVE to stick it to us again
Houston(1-4)? ABSOLUTELY!!!

So if you are cheering for the Texans to get Peterson you better hope we finish worse than the Pack, Browns, & Titans or he's GONE.

I think GB will win at least 4-5 games this year.

So it comes down to Houston, Tennessee, and Cleveland.

So depending on how we fare with Tennessee this year, it could very well come down to that final game just like it did last year!

WOW, would that be ironic!

Tennessee?--doubtful. Henry just ripped off 178 yds and they drafted LenDale White last year.

Don't think that as much as Bud would love to stick it to us, I don't see them taking a RB. They already have Henry, White and Brown under contract, that is a lot of money in the RB position. Plus they need a WR for Vince to throw to.

Yeah, you're right. Lets just keeping picking up everyone else's FAT TURD leftovers so they can run for 14 yards per game.

And a fluke collar bone injury does not make someone injury prone. The guy has never had a serious leg injury in his career and that is what matters for RBs.

Or we could not try to hit the home run 6th rounder without moving all the way up to tremendously overpaid top 5 pick and look for someone like Maurice Drew or Jerius Norwood in the upcoming draft.

He's been injured the last two seasons at oklahoma. What would a grueling 16 game schedule do to him? I see him slipping in the draft.

you don't need to be an extremist....there are 7 rounds and you can find a starting rb in the 2nd thru 4th rounds...historically thats where most of the backs are taken since rb is such high turnover position. Peterson has had injuries every year....he's just an injury waiting to happen.

LOL, yeah! With the Texans track record for draft picks, I'm sure they will find the next Terrell Davis in the 6th round!

They can't even get a first round pick right...


LMAO, that was classic.

Pull your head out--that is exactly the opposite of what I was saying. Look at the examples I gave--a 2nd rounder and a 3rd rounder--1st day picks. Heck even bottom half of the 1st is fine but sadly that will be a trade up scenario for the Texans.

I love AP, much in same fashion most were and are gaga over Bush. I just cannot fathom spending a top 5 pick on him when we still have Carr and AJ's contracts to contend with. Trade down, draft OL, LB or Secondary with the first.

I think we should go with a defensive player in the first and get a 2nd round RB.

Tell me what other RB is better than Peterson at this time though?

Defense and Oline are the only possibilities in the 1st I think. And most likely not Oline. Hopefully FS or CB.

I am sticking with my guns and going against you guys.

A Running Back needs to be picked up with out FIRST pick in the FIRST round. We have stalled around way to long trying and trying to find someone late and it hasn't worked yet. Let's quit the crap and grab the best RB available with out first pick and be done with it...

As of todate, does anyone know how many picks we have used in 4 years of drafting looking for that late bloomer in the dang draft already?

Was DeMeco a gamble on a late pick? No. There are rounds in between 1 and 7. Really, my objection ends at about pick #12 or so. Above that--a RB better be spotless and above 5 or so would actually have to be Barry Sanders, not just get compared to him. A RB who is very impressive when healthy but has only played 6 games in two of three college seasons is not spotless.

Agreed. The RB class has some huge talent at top, but also has some decent possibilities in the middle rounds. Personally, I like Jon Cornish or Kenneth Darby in the middle or Kenny Irons in round 2 if he somehow slips (cross your fingers!).
