Default Running back depth chart

With Slaton entrenched as the starter, who would you like to see as the backups/other backs? Moats? Foster? Brown? J. Johnson? Just curious to see what y'all think

Default Re: Running back depth chart

1. Slaton
2a. Moats
2b. Foster
PS: J. Johnson

I'd probably cut injury prone Chris Brown just because he reminds me too much of Ahman Green. Good back when healthy, but never healthy...

Moats/Brown will start the season as the #2a/2b RBs

Foster is likely "ahead" right now since Johnson just got here. He'll go to the practice squad ...assuming we can sneak him thru waivers

Casey as the Leach B/U sounds right to me too

Brown probably won't make it to the bye week but Foster will be ready by then.

Note:
assessments subject to change following training camp/preseason

4 Foster

I never was a big Moats fan. I dont really want Chris Brown, but I know they want to save face on the signing and they will give him the shot if he is healthy for real this time.

Im also about Jeremiah Johnsons biggest fan on this board, so I am probably biased.

Slaton will do even better this year and make the pro bowl.

And yeah, Chris Brown is gone. As to the rest of 'em, it just depends on what happens in camp and pre-season, so I'm not making any bets there. Wouldn't suprise me at all to see one of those rookies be the primary backup to Slaton. Moats have never really impressed me, but that could change in August.

He talked about how Glen Coffee could have been the Texans 3rd round pick had he not been picked by the 49ers a few picks before the Texans selected Antoine Caldwell.

Speaking of running backs, here's a little gem of information I don't ever recall being disclosed by the Kubiak regime ? An admission of "who they would have taken instead of" had this happened or not happened in the most recent Draft. I think its especially interesting to see that they were prepared
to make an equivalent investment to Slaton in his "backup".
BTW, I'd love to see the Texans full Board on the 2009 Draft class ?

You can put CB #2 on your fake roster list but until he outrushes Matt Turk as a Houston Texan I'll keep him completely off of mine.

Exactly, unless JJones is a wash out and JJohnson can return. Then maybe Brown makes final cut if healthy. It is hard to ignore Brown's stats.

Default Re: Running back depth chart

1 Slaton (obvious)

2 C Brown (until he inevitably gets hurt)

3 A Foster (eventually the #2; will get more carries as season goes)

4 J Johnson (too good to sneak onto PS; 3rd down guy)

Cut--Moats and Dawson

I think we carry 4 backs even if Brown makes it through camp healthy and is ready week 1, he's a ticking time bomb for injury.

I think Boomer Grigsby is gonna win the back up FB job and we'll just have to carry 4 TE's w/ Casey

I don't think it's Cak's roster but the team depth chart. I agree that Chris Brown should be listed as #2 back until TC.

Vinny, you are going to be so thrilled when Kubes say's "Coffee who?" plus we have a real strong Olineman in Caldwell. I know I make sarcastic comments about not drafting a back but this is going to all work out fine. Nothing can go wrong, go wrong, go wron...

I thought we were all just posting our own thoughts.

My thought is Matt Turk has outrushed Chris Brown as a Houston Texan, therefore, Matt Turk will be my #2 long before any injury reports come out. What a crazy asshole I am right? I'd like to see 10 measly yards out of a guy before I hand him a big role in the offense, what unbelievable standards I am asking to be upheld.

Did anyone say you couldn't have an opinion or even address you. My post didn't quote you and started with a group "y'all." Now since you felt compelled to do your fake roster bit I will point out your whining or standards, unbelievable or not, is irrelevant. The Texans have repeatedly expressed Brown is their dude unless he gets hurt. That isn't an I like Brown statement or even an agreement that is the right decision - just an observation like the original comment.
