I don't have any numbers for you, but I had Chris Brown on my fantasy team a few years back. The guy didn't miss games, but he'd go out injured at the half all the damn time. There were some games where he ran for 100+ yards in the first half - and then nothing the rest of the game. That's where the injury rap comes from.

I thought Brown didn't play in a lot of the games because he was in Fishers doghouse

I tried to look up what injuries he had but haven't found it yet

He definitely gets dinged, I am just trying to get across to people that are acting like he will be lucky to play in 4 games next year that he generally answers the bell for the start of the game.

I have never really seen Chris Brown play - and I can see that he's had some injury issues in the past - but when he's healthy, is this guy the goods?

Just trying to figure out if this signing is something to be excited about.

So, looks like our RB's by training camp will be Chris Brown, Ahman Green, Darius Walker, and Chris Taylor. We can work with that.

From the stand point of not going into next season relying on Green and Dayne I would say yes. Plus, he is no longer a tack. Although this means that Alexander will probably be a tack.

Default Re: Texans interested in RB Chris Brown/Signed

Not a bad signing but not one that gets me real excited either. From my recollection of watching him play he has decent speed and is fairly physical. If we end up keeping him and Green, hopefully the two of them together can put together an entire season. We came into last season with a bunch of veterans in the WR corp who had big question marks, and they turned out alright, hopefully the RB's can do the same next year.

In his rookie year, 2003, he played in 11 games with 0 starts.

In 2004 he played in 11 games with 11 starts.

In 2005 he played in 15 games with 14 starts.

In 2006 he played in 5 games with 3 starts.

In 2007 he played in 12 games with 1 start.

this is all true, did the pats get any points off the ny turnovers in the superbowl?, i don't think they did, could be wrong, it's looks like we will have a kickass offense, however our defense lead the league in points allowed off turnovers and we still need to build a championship defense. i'm all for controlling the clock but our defense still has holes and turnovers will happen
