I don't understand the Dayne hate. He averaged a good solid 4 yards a carry and had only 2 fumbles in his 2 years here.

Its his awsome 59 yards a game and the inability to run for 1 yard at the goal-line or on 4th downs.

He also does not show up to play until week 8.

For the last two years he has had the bulk of the carries and for the last two years we have finished in the bottom of rushing.

So which RB won't make the roster?

I expect we will draft a back in the 3rd or 4th. I wouldn't expect them to cut the young man.

Green, Brown, Taylor, Walker, Rookie? Who will be cut? I can only see them keeping 3 on the roster.

I vote we add a shitty RB Voltron Smiley to the selection.

Do we give him number 29 or 30? Perhaps we can give him number 29 1/2.

Man I wish the draft would hurry up & get here, not because I'm tired of making/reading mock drafts either, its that darn GM Rick Smith before the draft even gets here he's gonna have all our needs filled & no reason to even make draft selections

Barring serious injury, I believe we will keep 4 on the 53 man roster:

CBrown
AGreen
CTaylor
Walker or a rookie TBA..

My guess is it will be a late round rookie who can play special teams. Otherwise, he and/or Walker will likely find themselves on the practice squad. I see no way we draft a RB in the first 4 rounds!

As much as it is true that CBrown has been injury-prone, he has played in at least 11 games every season- that's not too bad!

It's not hate, it's honest evaluation. I like and appreciate him, however he is slow, overweight, over the hill, has poor vision, and will never be a key piece of a playoff team.

You gotta' be kidding me.

The free agent move we make is for a guy who can't wrestle the starting job from LenDale White?

I want to publicly state that I am ready to fist-fight anybody who thinks this is a good move. He's injury-prone and M.I.A. as much as Green was last year.

Forget the details of the contract. I wouldn't care if we'd spent $1 on him. To me, that's $1 that could have bought a burger for Dayne.

LOL. I hate this team. We are so retarded when it comes to running backs.

So are you thinking we draft CB, OT, CB in rounds 1-4?

I don't think Taylor will be ready. I have not seen a RB come back from a serious knee injury in the following year and play well. I did like him before the injury.

Well, my understanding is that it was a pretty clean ACL tear. Guys are coming back to that pretty quickly now. Also, he was injured in August- it's not like it happened in November. He should be fully recovered from the injury 7-9 months afterwards. After that, it's a matter of mentally recovering. So, I think he should be good to go by preseason. However, you never know.

I think there's a fairly decent chance that we don't even draft a RB now.

One thing about chris brown is that if he hits a crease, he's gone. He has explosion as good as any back in the league. if he gets some of those creases dayne got last yr, it will be a long run. Browns problem has always been health related. I can see him getting 15 carries per and the neext back getting 15 carries per and kubes riding the hot hand.

I am satisfied with this move.we filled a hole, injury prone or not this team is a RBBC and hopefully parts of the shitty voltron will stand the test of 16 or more weeks... i don't know what we paid the guy but like Aj said on my signature... This team has to build its stars through the draft.. CC and crew proved that there is a reason players are left to go to FA .they want to get paid and paid well. (overpay) and teams that have their star core players find ways to keep them.

I think our draft board is set or close to it by now... doesn't mean if someone slips that Kubiak isn't afraid to either take him or move down.

but I think brown gives us an option on draft day on whether to move up/move down or stay pat ...IF we are looking at RB

interesting scenario if we would have chose it
http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/playerS...egoryId=140393
brown
career 4.3 average per rush and 9 average per catch with 13 fumbles (8 lost)

or who we possibly could have had
Bush
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/player...e?statsId=77513.7 average per rush and 7.2 average per catch with 9 fumbles(5 lost)

I am just saying so far Texans dodged a bullet, so please dont' read much more into it

also, keep in mind it's just one more player in camp competing for a roster spot. not even a first or second string spot... it's a good pickup. he's cheap, shown flashes and at the very least will improve the position because of the camp competition.

end of debate.

The Texans will still draft a running back. I think we go into the season with 4 RBs, Ahman Green being the odd man out. It will be running back by committee. That would be my guess.

Default Re: Texans interested in RB Chris Brown/Signed

I like this signing. I think Chris Brown can do very well in our system. He has shown flashes of what he can do. Unfortunately he's always nicked up. To me it kind of seems that's we're fixing our running back situation the same way we fixed the WR position last year. Last season we had Kevin Walter, Andre Davis, and Jacoby Jones all fighting to be the #2 WR. It brought about good competition and our WR corps was much improved. I think the same thing will happen with our running backs. We now have Chris Taylor, Darius Walker, Chris Brown, and Ahman Green to compete for the guy getting the most playing time. Maybe it's just a gut feeling, but between Brown, Taylor, and Walker I think we may find our future RB out of that group.
