Its not the RB, its the Offensive line.

If we're gonna throw millions at something, how about a few dominant linemen?

Its both and we have thrown millions at the line. One of our biggest FA's ever has been a RT. Players don't grow on trees. We have solid individual players on the line. They just need more time to get it together. They also need a NFL quality lead back.

Exclamation edge in miami? try ricky?

I am sure the fins players won't be to happy to see ricky back..maybe if they get edge the texans should take a shot at ricky williams..he might be ok back in texas.

Cool texans and the draft

why can't the texans see what i was seeing on draft day..two of our biggest concerns are..not pass rush and imo a very weak excuse for a running back....back during the draft the texans had a chance to get marquise hill DE out of LSU and RB cedric cobb from arkansas...New England saw what i saw because they have them both...

i say we just draft a RB, so he can grow with the team and be around a long time, we are a young team with a lot of young talent and another young player would just heat up things, Right running back (in the draft) and we'd have a dangerious Trio. But if O-Line improves i think D.D will be just as good as any !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And they are tearing up the league. Hill has played zero times this year and Cobb has one run for one yard. Dang Casserly for not snapping them up--it is obvious they would have made the Texans a play off team.

IMO, it depends on if Indy gets to the SB and wins it

IF, a very big IF, that happens, then I could see Edge going to Miami.

Default Edgerrin James

Did I spell that wrong? Next year he is a free agent. Should the Texans bother or is he too old? Would be great to get an established runner with a few miles left in the tank to groom a draftee than constantly have to worry about the run game. Carr and Johnson are hooking up great right now. Can't wait to see how good it gets when the opposition is scared of our run too.

I've heard that if he goes anywhere other than Indy it would be Miami. Wants to return home.

Much of what this guy says about Rudi Johnson, applies to James--Johnson just has a whole lot more tread left on the tires:

Quote:
You can't open the vault for Rudi Johnson. You can't declare the Bengals Bank & Trust a Rudi subsidiary. Wallets are not made to be lived in. Not even by Rudi, the hardest-working man in show business. If Rudi wants $6 million a year, the Bengals should drive him to the airport and wish him well.

It's not about Rudi. I like Rudi. Who doesn't?

The man is 220 pounds of purpose. When he's not working, he's working. If anybody else starts riding that stationary bike behind the Bengals bench, I get a little ticked off. That's Rudi's bike.

But it's business. And business says NFL running backs are easily replaced.

He does conveniently leave Emmitt Smith & Terrell Davis out of his analysis, but both those teams built great OL's as well.

James is too valuable to Indy for them to let him go. They'll let Harrison go before James if they can't keep both because Manning can hit anyone and the same result will occur. It'll be easier for them to find a new WR to fill the spot than a RB to fill James's spot. However, isn't Ricky coming back for the Dolphins?

Default Don't Get Ricky

Don't even think about getting Ricky Williams. He is a real head case. We AFC East fans know best because he was in our division (not to mention the up to date Ricky Quotes and pictures).

I doubt you guys will get Edge. He is doing great in Indy this year, and is probably ahead of Marvin Harrison to get resigned.

I'd much rather get a cheap option like Blaylock or maybe even a rook like J.J. Arrington

edge may be the most complete back in the NFL along with LT. their games are only separated by what they do in the open field. edge will lower his shoulder, and LT will make the sick moves. i do expect edge to command top 3 RB money, but the colts may give it to him.

If the Colts pay Edge top 3 money, Harrison is as good as gone. I don't see how they could afford Manning's contract and pay Edge top 3 money.

The Colts are not dumb enough to give a top 10 RB, top 3 Money. He may ask for it, but he aint getting it unless he wants to play for the Bears.
