The C Brown saga begins.

He is going to be a debated topic on this team for a couple years before everyone including the coaches give up on him. I will admit I was a huge fan when he came out ... and when he lit up the Jags last season it was a work of art.

I was hoping to get a few good games out of him this year but so far from the TC reports, I'm wondering if he's even going to make the team.

what the hell are you talking about?

He'll be cut before the Cowboys game if he keep performing like this in practices pre-season games. Mike Bell would probably take his spot if he does get cut.

And if you check back in the thread when we got him, it wasn't like we were pinning him as our survivor. We all knew about his health problems, and were in the wait in see mode.

I don't know how you would define saga, but 1 1/2 month is a pretty short era.

Oh he will be back trust me ... Christy Brown will blow up in the first 5 games. It will not makes sense and right as you gave up on him he will shine. The rest of the season people will point to which ever game that is and say remember game x? He can be great ....

That's not the point.

The point was that you think he's going to still be on this team even though he's showing that he is injury-prone and lazy so far in camp. We 4 RBs that performing better then him in camp. So tell me why you think he is going stay around, when he's the worst. What makes you think he'd stick around long enough to make us talk about him for years?

It seems like you have no idea what you're talking about. I was just pointing that out, just like you pointed out Chris Brown being DTD.

Either he shape-up and show the coach what he can be, or he doesn't. If he doesn't then he'll be cut.

If he cant perform he will not be around. We have plenty of backs on the roster someone taking up space does nothing for the team. The tinheads kept him cause he probably throws the ball better than vy.

Just when he was getting national pub as a top tier elite back in this league, little ol' Jason Simmons came along and took him out. Still to this day, that's one of the biggest football collisions I have ever seen, the sound from the collision was deafening. (they looked like two rams colliding.....the question of "what happens when a unstoppable force meets a immovable object was answered"....total carnage) There wasn't a winner in that hit........both players were destroyed and lost.

Man, I wish I still had video on that hit.

That doesn't have to mean it's as a DE though i guess.

in other news, HT.com also has it that Faggins has missed time due to a hamstring.

So, as of today:

Thompson - 8 to 10 days (hamstring)
Chris Brown - dtd (back)
Jones - dtd (foot)
Faggins - unknown (hamstring)

did I miss anybody?
I don't think you did...

I think that there's too much talent out there this year.
what's the old saying?

Whut he said. That is the bottom line; we have other options.

- Green looks healthy and actually better than I recall him looking last year.
- Slaton will be here because of the speed dimension he brings.
- Taylor is making himself valuable by learning a second position, FB.
- Walker, so far, is having the best camp of all RBs.

We're not "married" to Chris Brown like the Titans were because of our other options. The Titans were "married" to Chris Brown because when they drafted Brown, they used it as an excuse to cut Eddie George. When you cut one of the biggest parts of your offense, one of the faces of your franchise and, a Heisman Trophy winner, for a Chris Brown; you've painted yourself into a corner where you almost have give him every chance to produce. That's why Chris Brown was given 3-4 years with the Titans to make a name for himself.
And he did make a name for himself... "talented but undependable".

From the Day 4 post-practice presser

Quote:
“His back was bothering him when he came in this morning and so we have him out of practice and he won’t practice in the afternoon on special teams,” Kubiak said. “We’ll see if his back is better tomorrow.
“It’s part of camp. You’re always going to have things to deal with. But for him to help his football team, he has to be on the field.”
"Missed time is not good time but if your back's bothering you, its bothering you."

I know there are a few trolls waiting anxiously on the edge of their seats ready to point fingers and say ha ha if/when Brown washes out, but the reality is that the Texans didn't invest much in him, so in terms of financials, it's certainly not a big deal. He got two years with a 800k signing bonus and a base this year just above minimum for his tenure (700k). If he can't stay on the field - boom outta here - move on and they'll get someone else to replace him.

AG is the one who needs to put the yards where his money is this year. RB is obviously still a work in progress on this team and with other holes gradually getting filled, and the age/injury history of AG and CB, I would expect a new feature back in the fold next season whether it be through the draft or FA. I think Slaton's niche will be 3rd downs and other situational deals.

Chris Brown injury does not suprise me. What would suprise me is if Brown and Green combine to start over six games this year. I see the younger backs getting a LOT of playing time this season. I doubt that either Green or Brown will be on the team next year anyway, so we might as well get used to the others.

Stupid Question - Do these guys get paid even if they don't make the squad? I assume that the signing bonus is earned and in the bank. There has been a lot of discussion regarding the RBs - and I have come to the conclusion that no one is safe, with the exception of probably Slaton. One of Walker or Taylor seem to be the most likely to be cut intitially, but if Brown can't stay healthy and Walker and Taylor are playing well...Brown should be out.

Different answers for different players. If we aren't talking injury and are pre-season then they keep their signing bonus but the salary is not typically (Jacques Reeves would be a contrary example) guaranteed. Once the season starts, vets (don't know the tenure cut-off) have this season's salary guaranteed. If a player gets injured there are rules for injury settlements.
