    It's time for him. Slaton is hurting among other issues, I'll cry if I ever see Chris Brown in a Texan uniform again, he offers a big body with a decent college track record and has had time to watch NFL action for a good bit. Let's see what the young man can do. If it's not much what exactly will be lost?

    BTW I think Moats is a good RB. It seems like when he runs he turns nothing into 3 yards, 3 into 5 and so on. Brown turns 5 into 3, 3 into nothing and nothing into the dumbest play ever. I was down for more Moats when he ripped up the Bills and I'm down for more Moats now. I'm not holding him up as the answer, just as the best RB on the current roster.

    Yep. No reason for Foster not to get 10 touches this week. That being said, we'll hear the same ol, "should have played the kid more" BS we've heard for 4years. Glenn Martinez , if you like him at all, needs WR snaps as well.

    I agree. I was a big supporter of the Texans taking Foster with a late round pick in the draft (obviously not knowing a lot about his draft rankings) and was happy when they signed him as an undrafted FA. We've got four games left and a very slim shot at the playoffs. Time to see what kind of inventory we've got on the shelves.

    I for one would like to see Moats start and get 20 carries. Use Slaton to spell Moats as a gadget RB/WR and on 3rd downs. Give Arian 3-5 carries. Take away Brown's parking pass at Reliant and dear God don't let him on the plane for road games.

    Apparently, Kubiak like using Chris Brown as an extra guard. In his system,
    the runningback only exists to help the quarterback pass the ball better.
    If any of the other guys are in the game, then the other team will KNOW
    we are trying to run the ball. We can't FOOL them, if Chris Brown isn't in
    the game. Don't ya see???

    Slaton has a stinger type injury and I think he could be shut down for the year. Maybe trim weight in the offseason. I would go with Foster, Moats, and Henry. Gotta see what u got for next year.

    I had posted this in a thread on Sunday that died on the vine, but here it is again. Still true, IMO...

    The more I see Ryan Moats, the more I like him. He's an effort guy. Not the most gifted RB out there and he'll never have what it takes to be "the guy." But he plays hard and makes the most of what he's given.

    Flip side of that coin - Chris Brown looks done. Put him out to pasture now please and lets see if we have anything with Arian Foster. It's not like we're relevant in the playoff hunt.


    So, yeah, if Slaton is done then please start Ryan Moats and start salting in some Arian Foster so we can see "what's what." Please don't trot Chris Brown out there anymore. If you're going to do that shit, you might as well just bring back Ron Dayne. Chris Brown makes me long for the Dayne Train.

    He shares a name with a successful hockey player, so it took a while to track him down. I was able to find this.

    I've been wanting to see what Foster can do for some time now.

    Thorn - I'd like to see what you could do. Could you fall down at the los? Maybe throw a pick on a halfback pass? I'm thinking you have what it takes to start at RB for the Texans.

    What's the NFL minimum salary these days? whatever it is, I know I could fall down, fumble, and throw stupid halfback passes with the best of them. :)

    Arian Foster, the best effort they made to bring in a RB this year (UDFA). He's got as big of a body as Chris Brown but if he tried a juke move or a stiff arm he would be a light year ahead of CB in the RB skills department. Oh and I believe he could outrun a D made of grandmothers so he's got that over CB too.

    he looked pretty good in the preseason. He was elusive in short space and had burst around the edge. He fumbled the ball once and we never saw him again.

    Even if he fumbles, what exactly is lost? We've dealt with ineffectiveness and fumbling all year so seeing if someone else can do something different shouldn't be a trip. Put the kid in Kubiak.

    He didn't have the black mail stuff Brown had. thats the only explanation for C Brown still being an everyday player.
