    the sitch: it's Monday morning & Coach finds out all our rbs will be unavailable for next week's game due to an 8-day flu. Who, from our current roster only, will carry the rock?

    My first instincts were to AJ & Pollard but we need them too much where they are. I went w/Casey though i haven't seen him enough to judge his hips (gut instinct).

    Jeremiah Johnson gets called up from the practice squad. If that doesn't count, then Vonta Leach carries most of the load with James Casey sprinkled in a little. We go to a 90% pass play concentration.

    I like the Leach option; who would be our FB?



    BTW, i posed the same question w/the Oilers' (early 90s) & my choice then was Lamar Lathan.

    Simple: James Casey... He's done it.

    In fact, at Rice he did a little bit of everything.

    He's batting a 1000 isn't he? 2 runs, 2 first downs?

    He looked pretty gassed though on that run up in Green Bay 2 years ago! :D

    We'll probably get a CB in the draft, so I'd like to see Antwaun Molden get some reps. What about McCain as our "speed back"?

    I like the cut of your jib!!!!

    Matt Turk is 13th all time in rushing for the Texans after that botched punt and run 2 years ago!!!

    However I would go with the Juggernaut all the way baby: CUSH!!!!
