We've got Marcell Shipp.... we don't need T.J. Duckett.

I'm not going to count on Green to be here anymore and actually, if they cut him, it will be like getting that monkey off your back. I hope he can prove us wrong in the long run.

Having Shipp doesn't exactly tickle my twig.

Having said that, I don't think Ducket's the answer either.

I've been wanting the Texans to ride the D-Train for 3 years.

He's like a younger, lighter, meaner Ron Dayne

He was great in Atlanta but then got passed around as a back-up for a while.

So one guy I liked for the later rounds last year was Tashard Choice. The cowboys have a pretty stacked backfield... dare I say it's the best in the NFL? (lol, at least I think its up there as all around).

I find it highly doubtful they release choice by anymeans but he's 3rd on their depth chart right now with 0% chance of moving up. In the offchance he gets cut for some reason, what are yalls thoughts on looking at him?

love Choice. if I where to change one pick knowing then what I know now I would have selected Choice @ #118 instead of Adibi (Tashard taken 4 picks later by the pokes).

have another. most people are gonna be shocked too, because he now plays for the Denver Broncos. same system & back-up FB, one question will he make the active roster or the practice squad? remember the third back in the Arkansas backfield ( McFadden & Jones)? Peyton Hillis. the really ironic thing about all this is he was selected by Denver in the 7th rd. #227. the Texans selected Alex Brink (who I also like) #224 thats three picks later after the Texans selection. weird or what (well at least to us draft geeks)?

I always thought he could flourish in a ZBS & that he was buried behind two 1st rd. RB's. Ourlads had him rated above JAcob HEster (don't know about that) good inside tackle to tackle cutting ability, solid blocker who can seal edge in support of LT. I think he will be a productive FB in the ZBS system.

Haha I know exactly what your saying. I'm glad to see Hester doing so will in preseason. I liked him buy not for our 3rd rounder. It is interesting that Denver picked up Hillis. I really like some of these young RB's that have just been drafted but don't know the likelihood for any of them getting released. I can't wait to see the cuts down to 53 for all the other teams, I hope we can find some guys to bring in. If they get released, It doesn't necessarily mean they arent good but the team could just have a crowded backfield and have to make some spots.

Shipp has nothing to do with tj. Just like mike bell, coaches bring guys in, take a look under the hood and then release them before the season so their contracts aren't guaranteed. Then if they have a injury, they bring the uy back. With tj, he knows gibbs system and has hhad some success. Kubes is kinda turn tylor into anderson. He's having trouble and is struggling. They like the big back as the 4 minute offene chain mover. Last year when green did play in thoose 1st coupple of games and they wanted to salt the game, they brought in dayne to run into the brick walls. Duckett is that kind of guy, but has a little more wiggle. I'm not 100% sure, but if duckett gets cut and taylor struuggles, his prior relationship might land him in houston. He might be the 4th qt back.
