I have always liked Chris Brown. When healthy, he is usually productive and can break off the long one at any time. Hopefully, he can stay healthy in Houston.

Eric Dickerson and Roger Craig both had upright running styles. They were pretty ok.

This doesn't bother me, but I was hoping to get a back by round 4, but that may not happen.

I think a more important signing would be the center from Denver. A starter who knows the offense, that would be nice.

Oh and the A key is on the left of the keyboard and does not require 'shift' to be used in conjunction with it. Therefore the A key might be a better choice in the future. It could save you from carpel tunnel syndrome.

IIRC, Eddie George ran kind of upright, didn't he? He was a big dude though. I met him a looong time ago and the dude's built like a brick shithouse. :elle:

Eddie George eventually broke down, but he had some very good years. Brown doesn't have nearly as many miles on his tires.

I see Brown more as a 2 x 4 with a quarter moon on the door shithouse.

I am for the signing. Mark my words if (if being the big word with Chris Brown) he is healthy through camp and for as long as he stays healthy, he will be the starter for our team.

If he is not we paid chicken feed for him so who cares.

Default Re: Texans interested in RB Chris Brown/Signed

I'm not completely sold on Brown, but I think he can add good depth for us and he can hit the hole a lot quicker than Ron can. Having said that, I doubt than Ron will comeback and thank him for helping us out for the past two years. Like him or hate him, he was probably the most consistent back we had during his tenure. I wonder if we could have waited a little bit more and given Kevin Jones a shot, but I guess Detroit released him too late.

I remember Brown from Colorado and he still runs the same way in the NFL, which leaves him susceptible to big hits and injuries. He always ran hard, but with him and Ahman as our two main backs I'm thinking that Darius and Chris Taylor will have make some massive strides and pick up the slack when/if one of these guys goes down again.

Finally, I severely doubt we are going to draft a RB with our first pick, so now it's down to either CB, OT, OLB.

Eddie George was also consistantly one of the backs with top # of rush Attempts per year. It caught up with him.

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.
I think its a good move, what?

GP, I think you should step back for a few days, stretch the legs a bit. I am sure if you talk to Herv he can recommend a good place to chill for a while. You are starting to sound an awful lot like our resident troll Nighthawk, or worse, the infamous BoBo.

You are blasting everything the Texans do. If Rick Smith stopped to pick up a quarter you would probably start an entire thread about how Rick Smith is waisting time and thats why this team never signs any good players.

Chill, its only the offseason.

Default Re: Texans interested in RB Chris Brown/Signed

In Houston's situation I see this as a good signing. You guys lack a true #1 back but the combination you have should suffice. Brown's biggest obstacle is obviously his health. Even as a part-time guy for us last year he got hurt and missed some practices. He does have speed and is a lot more elusive then he seems. He hits the hole quckly and has pretty good vision. He is best used as a receiver out of the backfield as he has a knack for making the first man miss. He's good on screens and the like. It will be interesting to see him in the zone-blocking scheme.

FYI, he did get a chance to start... it was the year after we let Eddie walk, which was made easier by the promise Brown showed the year before and in the playoffs, but he got hurt and never really amounted to anything.

Default Re: Texans interested in RB Chris Brown | Update: Signed

Just saw this after getting back from vacation. I think it is a good pickup. We could use a running back and he can use a new situation. He was a mean runner in college. He was a good back in the first couple of years of his pro career but injuries caught him. Wasn't he the guy Simmons laid out? Dislocated his shoulder I think.

Rick Smith is smart to take a chance on Brown, maybe he has a good year with the opportunities he will get with the Texans.

Default Re: Texans interested in RB Chris Brown | Update: Signed

i've either ignored or skimmed most of the posts so forgive me if i missed something relevent, but dang yall are worked up over a backup working a near minimum salary. this has been a less than eventful offseason obviously but put that effort into our biggest free agent, coach gibbs, and what he can do with the current roster and what it's going to do to impact our scheme and draft and future season.

chris brown is a solid player who's injury prone. when healthy he's been successful and coming from a division rival who we play twice a season is worth signing. brown fits what kubiak/gibbs/shanahan are building and at very least can compete in camp for a starter or backup role. he has zero bearing on the draft or other potential free agent signings. what brown is, is exactly how rick smith has been so successful thus far. low risk, high reward ... talents fit the the system ... costs next to nothing relatively ... and if nothing else boosts the talent level of the overall 53. since it's the current flavor it's comparative to the current rockets' success - TEAM talent instead of individual talent. with brown our group talent is higher.

kubiak and smith have done a great job of building this team in two ways ... schaub is one direction and brown is the other. in schaub the office researched their hearts out and threw the bank at one player. brown is at the other end of the spectrum and why we've gone from a 2-14 team to an 8-8 team under a rookie coach and office ... sign 300 players for pennies who fit the system and let the best man win. we've missed twice so far on big spending (weaver/green) simply because we were so far behind that reaches needed to be made, but these nickel potential signings are paying huge (walter, demps, kalu, leach, killings, andre davis, cochran, and many more).

brown's a nickel signing that cant hurt us, but is capable of helping us in a big way.

hell if nothing else ... if brown, green, and taylor can each play 5 or more games before their inevitable injury, we're in good shape.
