    I'm guessing Taylor will be cut. He has never shown anything in the regular season, except for that one single game against Cleveland (meaningless game at the end of the season). He will have spent 2 consecutive year on IR with no or minimal game day experience.

    I was thinking about that earlier today. I think he had his opporutnity and missed it. I'm sure the only reason he's hung on thus far is for lack of a better option.

    Add him to the banged up RB bunch and can him after the season. He hasn't ever done anything as a Texan. All we've heard about is how much Kubiak likes the guy, but he sure as hell has never done anything but have like one good game.

    Yeah, there were a lot of Chris Taylor fans everywhere after that one game against the Browns. He was much overhyped

    No, that was Kellen Winslow, Jr.

    Taylor hurt his quad.

    Does anyone here think we'll draft another RB next year? LOL

    We need to. We probably won't until the laster rounds though. I strongly hope that they might try and get a good back up in free agency.

    We might not have any other choice then to go after defense in the first few rounds if things continue to look they way they have.

    I like Chris Taylor, so I guess I'm one of his fans... but yeah, it's not like he hasn't had a chance.

    Going for defense in the first couple of rounds makes a LOT of sense to me. I would like to see them get a DE, OLB, and a safety or corner in the first three rounds. The problem though, is there is help still needed on the O line and we need that RB.

    Sit back, enjoy the ride, and keep all limbs inside the couch.

    regardless of what his talent level may or may not have been, the fact is, he couldn't stay on the field and if you can't stay healthy, you're gonna get cut. i can promise you, if he isn't cut, he'll be at the very bottom of the depth chart. i was and am a taylor fan.

    i seriously doubt you'll see them drafting a corner. baring injury, all 3 of our current stable + dunta coming back suggest a real strength right now. if bennett develops and faggins continues to play well we've got a pretty deep secondary. Reeves is all over his guy all game. he has trouble playing the ball but he has great skills and would make a terrific 5 and dime.

    ideally i'd love to see bennett develop into a solid 2 and faggins and reeves as nickle and dime!
