OW, I try to keep everything on the up and up. That said, I had some bad chili today and I have been on and off the dirty clothes hamper all day and it has really taken a toll on my judgment.

Cut Ahman Green. Bring Curtis Enis out of retirement. Oh, and Cade McNown, too.

Ron Dayne can't try out. He's paying off a tab he owes...



If you see him on the sidewalk, look out for your LEGS...he tends to roll people up from the blindside.

Here's some of our other highly-prized RB castaways (names withheld out of respect):



Kubiak will be working drive-through if he doesn't get this figured out soon. Sheesh, Kubes, this isn't rocket science: After all, you can find "any RB" to fill the role, right?

Justin Forsett was released by the Seahawks. Maybe we could poach him before the hawks get him onto their PS?

Maybe because they aren't really in a hurry to sign anybody. All of you on here have been in love with Chris Taylor and now he should get his true chance with Slaton to see if he deserves his spot on this team.

Kubes has already said that Darius Walker would be the 1st running back they would sign if they signed any, so unless the Texans were willing to bring in Benson or Shawn Alexander then it really doesn't matter.

Because other teams want to snatch any running back the Texans decide are worth having?

I guess not.

I would like Forsett please:

Quote:
2008 NFL Draft Prospect - Scouting Report
Forsett is a shifty runner with incredible vision and speed. He is a tremendous cut-back runner and he finished second in the Pac-10 in rushing with 1,546 yards and a 5.1 ypc average. He displays outstanding initial burst and a second-gear to run away from defenders in the open field. He is a fluid and smooth athlete and can be incredibly elusive in space. Forsett runs with good balance and body-control. He reminds me of a poor man's Maurice Jones-Drew, running with incredible power in spite of his small stature. Forsett is a very good receiver out of the backfield and is a decent blocker in pass pro (which could mean he'll contribute early as a third down running back in the NFL). Also, he has some experience returning kicks at California and displays upside as a returner in the NFL. Forsett lacks ideal size for an NFL running back at under 190 pounds, but he has drastically improved his draft status with a great showing in Senior Bowl practices. He has surprised many Senior Bowl scouts with his power and elusiveness. Forsett chose not to run at the combine and will make teams wait for his times for a personal workout. Teams are not concerned about his running times, they are more concerned about his size. Forsett will be a good player, but his draft status is tough to predict with such a deep running back class. Forsett ran the 40 in 4.62 and 4.73, which was disappointing for a back of his size. He seems to play faster than his times indicate. He had a 31-inch vertical jump, 9-foot, 9-inch long jump, and ran 4.46 short shuttle, and a 7.15 cone drill. Forsett improved his forty time at Cal's pro day by running a 4.59, but did not improve enough to make himself a first day pick. It is reported that the Philadelphia Eagles have shown interest in Forsett.

how do teams feel about getting their players poached when their just trying to get them to the practice squad? is it a gentlemens agreement to not do it, or is it kill or be killed?

Default Re: Working Out Some Running Backs

Considering the tampering that is (reportedly) rampant across the league, I have a hard time believing anyone would blink over poaching a practice player. That said, if you do poach said player, they have to be active for the next three weeks or something. Not necessarily something you want to do with someone you aren't sure of.
