Default Moore could have been a Texan?

per www.kffl.com

Quote:
Texans | Team contacted by Minnesota about Moore
Tue, 16 Oct 2007 12:48:43 -0700

Jason Cole, of Yahoo! Sports, reports the Minnesota Vikings have contacted the Houston Texans to inform them they have dropped their demand of a third-round draft choice for RB Mewelde Moore. According to league sources, the Vikings will accept a fourth-round draft choice.
As I am not a huge fan of Mewelde I'm glad that this deal was not made; just that I found it interesting that the Vikings were willing to drop the price and the Texans still didn't make the move.

Makes me wonder who on the roster they think is better them Moore, or if he is not better then anyone and then he is not worth giving up a draft pick.

Leads me to believe that Houston brass feels a fourth round pick is better than Mewelde Moore.

I tend to agree.

I think Smith and Kubiak regard 4th round picks as players who will become foundations of the franchise. Look at Owen Daniels and Bennett who both appear to be headed toward starting and making significant contributions. I wouldn't give up that for a non-spectacular temporary patch. 6th rounder maybe, but nothing higher.

Default Re: Moore could have been a Texan?

Each year Kubiak has been with us/ will be with us...he's started the behind in picks.

2006- No 5th round pick b/c of Moulds
2007- No 2nd round pick b/c of Schaub
2008- No 2nd round pick b/c of Schaub

We've had two really good drafts the last 2 years imo and thats starting without all 7 picks. I don't want to see us trade away any more picks and if anything trade down, if it warrants it. I'm starting to think if we can start collecting draft picks here and there- they will turn them into gold.

Default Re: Moore could have been a Texan?

Personally, I'd rather not trade any draft picks away. I'd rather keep building through the draft. We traded picks for our franchise QB (and I'm all for it), so let's draft young players which we can groom and keep building around our core players.

We need all of the picks that we have and I believe Mewelde is going to be a free agent in the offseason too. If they have any interest they can go after him there. Minnesota dropping their demands shows that there wasn't much interest in him in the league at that price.

Mewelde Moore is seen by most analysts I've read as a third down back and not much more. I'd rather have a fourth round pick any day.

Default Re: Moore could have been a Texan?

I wonder why Minnesota beilieves we'd be interested in a running back.

Kubiak & Sherman decided to go with Green, Dayne, and Lundy.

& while I'd personally like an upgrade in the backfield, those three guys have done about what you'd expect of them with the way the OL's been playing.

I've never seen Dayne or Gado create big plays by themselves.... so to expect them to do so now doesn't make a lot of sense. They knew what they were getting when they picked them to make the team.

I can't see us carrying 4 RBs.... And Green ain't going anywhere.

See I would have been the one to copy and paste her post and say Ding Ding Ding we have a winner just for chits and giggles.

Default Re: Moore could have been a Texan?

I assume Moore would need holes to run through also. Why waste a pick on a guy to watch him run into the back of our O-line as they get blown of the line.

Agreed, and factor in not having a 2nd rounder for two years.

I am not complaining about the Schaub decision, but it does impact future trades that involve draft picks.

I agree there is a certain level of arrogance in a post like that. IMHO
