Default Forsett's

Very underrated off season pick-up & could become a Texan fan favorite as you need at least three solid RB's for a run oriented offense. I'm really pumped for him & his wife future here in Houston, wishing them much success & happiness. The former Cal Bear was drafted only four years ago so his best years are still ahead of him. He excels as a one cut runner so should hit the hole with explosive quickness given his smaller size. He also has good pass catching ability with almost 10 1/2 inch hands. I liked Kendall Hunter coming out of Oklahoma State last year & remember some people in pre-season with Gore out 49ers would struggle in ground game. He proved slippery & had a pretty effective rookie season. Forsett has four years NFL experience, is in a better offense & should get plenty of pre-season work as Texans will rest Foster/Tate. Welcome him & Angela Forsett to Houston.

I couldn't agree more this has to be the best FA pick up in a good while for the Texans...

Default Re: Forsett's

When we had Foster/Tate/Ward we had the best 1-2-3 punch in the NFL. If Forsett lives up to his hype, then Foster/Tate/Forsett will become the best 1-2-3 punch in the NFL.

I can live with that.

He looked good in camp and I'm excited about him too but, he will have to be exceptional to be the best FA pickup...ie. JJo, DMan were just last year.

He would have to outdo Arian Foster to be on JJo's level.

Forsett is a solid pickup, but is not going to have the impact that Manning and Joseph have had since just last year.

Go Bears. Sorry had to be done.

Interesting coaching decisions really affected his life. He was stuck behind Marshawn Lynch for three years in college and only got spot duty. Then Lynch goes in the first round and Forsett exploded beyond what Lynch had done but goes in the 7th. It is like he has always been behind someone the coach thinks should be better - Julius Jones, Edgerrin James. Real interested to see what he can do.

I always thought he'd be perfect for the Texans' system, but the weakness in his game is blocking. That (and the fact that he's a highly effective checkdown receiver) is why he's ideal as a 3rd down back.

How would being an ineffective blocker make you into a good third down back?

He's a smurf. I've always liked the guy and I have always believed that he's gotten the short end of the stick when it comes to opportunity. I think at the end of the day, small players just have very little chance to show that they can overcome. You get the occasional smurf that breaks out (Warrick Dunn, MJD, etc), but they have so much to overcome in terms of convincing the coaches. Even MJD, who is the poster child for overcoming Smurf Syndrome, didn't get drafted as highly as he should have, and didn't even get real consideration for ROY, even though he was clearly the best rookie that year.

MJD is a lot thicker than Forsett, too.

I hear the smurf comment. I just have never bought into it for RB. Lower center of gravity is a good thing for a RB. Less visibility is a good thing. The league's leading rusher was a generous 5'10" and one of the prettiest of all time runners was 190 lbs. - Link

I agree with you. I just don't think very many coaches do.

So, are our 3rd string RBs really any good, or is it the O line and blocking scheme? Personally, I kind of think it's both. Looks like another good year for the Texans running game.
