For real? Thats Tommy Boy right?

Anyway, back on topic. Why dont we just draft a runningback, or bring in a young guy? Runningbacks take a pounding, its a waste of money to bring one in who has been in the league for 6 years.

We will see. I'm very curious about the staying healthy part. I look at our backs and see Ahman Green (missed most of 2007 and about the same amount of time in 2005), Chris Brown (missed most of 2006), Chris Taylor (missed all of 2007), and Darius Walker.

We've definitely got some guys who have missed some time due to injury. This could go very well and we could be loaded at RB or this could go very poorly. We won't know till we get there.

Just givin ya a hard time because of your Dayne train love. Oh ya, and the Sage love comment!

Glad to see Brown signed though. This could be a very good signing, or amount to nothing. All depends on whether the guy can stay healthy.

I personally think he's gone. He doesn't really fit the ZBS, and I just think he winds up being a June 1 cut, but I could be wrong.

This injury thing is being overblown. Brown has missed one game due to injury in the past three seasons.

Huh?--what about Green's running style doesn't fit ZBS?

If the Texans intend to make Green a June 1st cut no matter what his health is, it will happen within the next week. They have a history of giving guys as much time to find a new team as possible. I don't think he will be unless he has injury issues in mini-camp and OTAs.

Good signing. If he can stay healthy our running game will be a strength rather than a weakness.

Looks like Dayne isn't coming back and the Texans are going to draft a RB:

The Texans were looking for another veteran running back who fit the system. They don't plan to re-sign Ron Dayne.

Brown joins Ahman Green, Chris Taylor and Darius Walker in the running back mix.

The Texans still plan to draft a back.

Default Re: Texans agree to terms with Brown

from the article

Quote:
Brown will compete for playing time with Green, Taylor, Walker and a running back who is drafted. It's unlikely that all will be on the final 53-man roster, so the competition in training camp will be fierce. The coaches are extremely high on Taylor's ability to fit in with what Gibbs wants to do. But, if Green and Brown can stay health — a big if — running back could become a strength.
Sounds like a big if to me. He's been injured all five of his seasons with the Titans. I just have to wonder about this choice.

From roto:

Quote:
Texans agreed to terms with Chris Brown on a two-year contract, according to NFL Network's Adam Schefter.

We're not huge fans of Brown because he wears down easily, but Houston is a perfect landing spot for him. He could hit long runs in a zone scheme, and only Ahman Green, Chris Taylor, and Darius Walker are in his way. We expect a committee approach, and Brown has a good chance to find a role. Houston seems less likely to take a running back early in the draft now.
