Remember when we used to tolerate a player like Chris Brown? You know just sit and hope for the best? Not anymore, this organization is going to be a hard team to make from now on and either you produce or go home. Thanks to Bob, Gary and Rick for doing their job.

Anyone who think Benson has or had a remote shot at this team really needs to step back and realize they are not looking at the entire picture. Players need to have ability, fit the scheme, and fit the personality of the franchise. We arent the Cowboys or Patriots. We dont take players with serious off the field issues and try to rahabilitate thier lack of self control, immaturity, or self respect. He couldnt use $40 of the millions the Bears handed him, which he didnt earn, to call a cab, he obviously has authority issues, and is most likely facing a suspension. A player like that on the Texans roster is a square peg that will never fit into a round hole.

That's pretty spooky, folks. Kubiak might be doing the same thing to Taylor that Shanahan did to Bell: Trying to convert a guy to FB because he's not scoring big on the tailback exams.
I think it's more a matter of maximizing versatility. Mike Anderson had an incredible rookie season, but was converted to FB because of a glut at TB and the versatility he could bring to the offense as a runner and receiver at FB. I keep going back to this, but imagine a scenario with Slaton and Taylor in the backfield. I think it opens up the possibilities more than one with Slaton and Leach in there. I'm not banging on Leach.

I think PN has it right; if he weren't an ex-Bronco, I wouldn't think much more than camp fodder to fill in with Brown down. Bell knows the offense; Jones and Benson don't. He can slot in and take reps right away, besides being cheap. If he works out and is an upgrade over some of what we have, then great. If not, it hasn't cost them anything.

Sorry but signing him didn't really help the team. It just added another so so RB to the roster that will blend in with the bunch we already have.
I'm sorry, what team is it you're a scout for, I missed it.

I don't have to be a scout to have my opinion. Is that alright with you? That is what a message board is for. I don't have to scream hooray every time the Texans sign a new player. I'm entitled to my opinion of what they chose to do the way you are.

I think the Texans could probably get him for a really late pick or something, and he does have the potential to be a starter here. He also knows the system already, and watching him run he looked way better than Bell ever has.

I also wouldn't going after Canton Kieth from the Colts. He played really well as a backup last year and when Addai went down, their running game didn't miss a beat with Kieth starting. The Colts got Rhodes back, so I could see them letting go of Kieth especially after he got arrested a few months back.

Those are two backups that I think have a lot more potential than Mike Bell.
I never heard of either one of these guys you're talking about. At least I heard of Bell. So what are there ststs like.

Go look them up if you want to know. What is so hard for some of you to understand if someone doesn't go ga ga over every move the Texans make? I already said that I will support the guy since he's a Texan now.

Knew it had to be a mistake.

Harrison has been impressing in camp so far, and has done alot more then Mitchell in TC.

Quote:
One to watch

Brandon Harrison: free safety

Brandon Harrison had the best practice day of his brief Texans career on Monday.

Harrison (6-2, 227) was making plays all over the field, including an interception return for a touchdown.

“He’s smart, and he works hard,” said general manager Rick Smith, who selected Harrison in the fifth round out of Stanford in the 2007 draft. “You can tell he feels a lot more comfortable. He’s having a real good camp, and today was his best day here.”


Harrison spent last season on injured reserve after suffering a serious hamstring injury. Now he’s trying to make up for lost time at a position that’s going to force the coaches to make some difficult cuts.

The Texans are loaded with safeties, including Harrison, C.C. Brown, Will Demps, Glenn Earl, Nick Ferguson, Dominique Barber and Brandon Mitchell.

In the Texans’ defensive scheme, the safeties are interchangeable. Defensive coordinator Richard Smith, defensive backs coach Jon Hoke and assistant secondary coach Ray Rhodes want to get faster in the secondary.

Harrison has excellent size and good enough speed. He’s so intelligent he sometimes overanalyzes. The coaches want him to get comfortable enough to simply react to what he sees. If he can, he’s got a chance to earn playing time.

Whew. I was getting really annoyed until reading that. It seemed way too early to give up on a 5th round pick from last year, especially since the things I read about him seemed pretty positive. Of course, if they had gotten rid of him, I should probably have assumed it was due to something bigger (e.g. off-field problems) we hadn't heard about.

I'm kind of sorry to see Brandon Mitchell go, also - I had high hopes for him, as far as UDFAs go. But, with as many players as we have competing at safety this year (including another draft pick this year), it makes sense to cut from that group.
