    Said he likes Texas pro basketball teams.
    Said he thought OU was a better fit for him than Texas.
    Ankle sprains are common injuries for RB's.
    There's nothing wrong with him now.

    Some combine talk...he got poked and prodded....he was nervous about running the 40.
    Thinks Cleveland is the most interested team in him.

    He's having a birthday party at the Office tonight $20 cover.

    not as electric as last year when 610 had VY w/agent in studio but still I'd be all over him if by some fate the "God of Redemption" made him available to the Texans :)

    listen, I'm having a real hard time right now accepting the realties of this franchise, the moves they make & how they continue to exceed expectations of unpredictablity. they've already ruined the draft for me & its still over a month away, not that we've seen it that much as Texans but you would expect to build your franchise through the draft depending on making smart direct hits (DeMeco Ryans) on those 2nd rd. picks not to mention taking your cornerstones (big contracts) in the 1st. its not just this year its more accumulative, I guess I've finally just blown up :bomb:

    I'm still in a hissy fit over last year & the decision to extend Carr then pass on VY. the Texans (Kubiak/McNair) accept no accountability or blame for this disasterous mistake, then go right out & pull another :hairpull: I'm frustrated because I did'nt voice my displeasure with the events that transpired or take some action, other than post here on mb. there should be some process in place that influences ownership of its fan base desires.

    my pet peave of maximizing assests, trading down for more picks, etc. etc. would take a back seat for a special player like Adrien Peterson. if he is there & the Texans pass on him how would you react :confused:

    Peterson is coming off my wish list.

    He just sounds like a money hungry kid. Talks about how he would rather go to Cleveland than the Texans because of money alone.

    Also talks about going to OU instead of Texas as a "business move." This just doesnt feel/sound right.

    LOL...

    What does it matter, as long as he's playing hard ?

    You don't run full speed every time you touch the rock all throughout your football playing life....and then get to the pro's and 'chillax'...

    Everybody wants money...I don't see whats wrong with him making smart financial descisions...

    I'd say you're way too obsessed about the NFL draft, but then you're not the only one. I, for one, am stoked about the changes made so far this season. They went out and got the best FA QB on the market, and they made very smart moves with the other free agents as well.

    You're looking at it from one aspect and one aspect alone. They gave up one of your precious draft picks, and that's all you see.

    The #3 pick in '06 received $25.7 million guaranteed. The #10 pick got $14 million guaranteed. Now me why getting nearly $12 million less would "feel right" to Peterson?

    Paging Gordon Gekko.

    Guess he already spent his trust fund.

    Does his love of money affect his motivation after he gets paid? Probably not going to be a high correlation there, if he's that greedy he'll want more. Him playing in the Bowl Game certainly can't be explained by greed... that was a 100% risk and 0% reward situation.

    he's not even asking for a raise. this isn't a demand. it's just the simple fact that if he's picked at #3, he'll get a lot more money than if he's picked at #10.

    Alot more money.....and RBs don't have long shelf lives in general. I don't blame him for wanting to go as high as he can go. I'd still rather have Peterson than Bush and Peterson would be alot cheaper than Bush.

    I guess its a shock thing to hear a player talk about wanting to go higher than your team picks, because they want more money. Normally they just talk about how they are glad to be going into the NFL and want to win a championship.

    So im looking forward to Adrians preseason hold out, and the articles about how Lewis is getting the nod because Adrian is late for camp.

    no reason at all to think there will be a holdout.

    I hate to do this to you, but you are really, really wrong here.


    Edwards is the Browns' fifth straight first-round draft pick to hold out. Last year, tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. missed 12 days before signing.

    Maybe you should think about what you are saying before typing.

    thats a fact jack, I live for the draft, I love everything about it except when it comes to the Texans inability to please their fan base. after all this.... if Kubiak/Smith pass on Peterson..... it would be another COLOSSAL mistake

    &​

    not having 2nd rd. picks....... priceless to a draft geek :lightning:

    Just because the Browns low ball all of there draft picks does not mean the player themselves want tohold out. It is funny how it is always the Browns pick holding out, has a lot to say about the organization versus the players.

    So is trading for another QB not admitting that Carr wasn't the guy to lead the Texans? No coach or owner for any team is going to throw a player under the bus. They will all say good things about the guy, but the move the Texans made to acquire Matt Schaub is a pretty good sign that Kubiak, Smith, and McNair do accept accountability...
