You are right that it was wrong, but knowing that it was wrong, doesn't make it right, just becuase you knew it was wrong before you wrote it. Remember, GI Joe says, "knowing is only half the battle".

I tried to tell everyone that the texans aren't taking a rb in 1st rd. There are a lot of reason why gibbs and kubes don't like mcfadden, mendenhall, nor stewart.

It has been known for yrs that gibbs doesn't care for any back that runs out of the spread set in college. All of the guys drafted in denver while gibs was coaching the line and rbs came from traditional sets. Davis and Gary from georgia and portis from miami. Mayock talked about how difficult it is to judge a college rb that run out the spread. Its hard to see if the guy can press the heels of the lineman, plant his foot and explode. When playing the spread,it basically a bunch of draw plays.

I know how bad people want that ''franchise back'', but I just want the team to avg 130 ypg. I don't care what combinations, just get the yards. I know how much everyone loves peterson from last yr, but his backup ran for 5 ypc. So is it the back or the line?

Default Re: Rotoworld: Texans intersted in meeting with Tacks RB Chris Brown

I am actually pretty excited about Chris Brown. I know, I know, if anyone has actually read any of my posts I bash the guy, but that is b/c his colors where Viagra Blue trimmed neatly in a pretty Powder Puff Blue. Now he is changing colors to Steel Blue and Battle Red.

He is an upgrade at RB over Walker, and Younger than Green.

Also gives us a little more flexibility at RB if Green or Taylor go down in camp, than Brown and our Draft Pick can step in and be our one two.

I still think Green will eventually get cut with Browns signing, maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon. My reasons are that Taylor was already going to push for the starting job in camp, so I doubt he makes it back to the practice squad, and Green was a Sherman guy so there is no one left to protect him.

Taylor/Brown has a nice ring to it.

Default RotoWorld/NFL Network Report

NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports a deal between the Texans and free agent Chris Browns is expected to be completed by Thursday.
It sounds like Houston may be offering Brown a multi-year deal, but we won't know for sure until the contract is finalized. The Texans seem set to use a running back by committee approach in 2008.

Danny Clark, who started eight games at outside linebacker until an injury allowed Charlie Anderson to replace him, agreed to a two-year contract with the New York Giants on Wednesday night.

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/5614462.html

Okay so with Chris Brown agreeing with us, Danny Clark agreeing with NYG, I think that LB kid (USC) in the 1st is going to happen.

Are we really going to sign another player to help fill up the IR list?

All this guy seems to do is get hurt. Just what we need to be the team with the most players on IR again.

I'd be all for Keith Rivers at 18, but I don't think he's going to last that long.

I agree, even though I think a CB is still likely in the first round. I can't see how we draft running back now. We have two young running backs already in Walker and Taylor. And two vets in Brown and Green. I definately think this is servicable but is the secondary servicable? I don't think so. CB, LT, OLB, and DE are all bigger needs, in my opinion, than RB at this moment. As much as I like Chris Taylor, Darius Walker looked even more impressive last year and I think he could carry the load if it came down to it.
