    Megan Manfull, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said Monday, Nov. 19, that it is a possibility RB Ahman Green (knee) could go Injured Reserve.

    If that's the quote from the presser yesterday, Kubiak made it sound like they would wait a week or two and see how Green's knee is doing.

    Kubiak said it was a possibility, but didn't see it happening at this time. I think Megan's trying to stir the pot a bit.

    I think ol Kubes is just trying to make our IR list even longer so that no one can surpass us in the "who has more players on IR" contest. :splits:

    Why not? It's not like he plays anyways. We could use the spot on the roster for a better cause.

    I thought we won that last season. I guess we are going for 'back to back' titles.

    I'd put him on IR. From what I understand his "knee bruise thingy" is something that isn't going to go away without extended rest. If that's the case then let him rest. In my eyes the move hasn't worked out. I'm not blaming ANYBODY, just pointing out that he got hurt and so we spent 8 million dollars and didn't get a damned thing except elevated expectations (that were dashed) in return. Park his butt on IR and tell him to start getting ready for 2008. That's really our only chance to see anything out of the Ahman Green signing anyway.

    For this year give it to Dayne, Walker, and Itchy and go with it.

    Found this scouring the news wire:

    Source

    HOUSTON at CLEVELAND — Texans: OUT: RB Ahman Green (knee). Browns: OUT: DT Ethan Kelley (knee), T Kevin Shaffer (knee), DE Shaun Smith (knee), CB Eric Wright (knee).

    This is from a KC paper, but I'd believe them before Megan Manful.

    I don't think he'll be with the Texans next season. One year just like Eric Moulds.

    If that story is accurate and the Browns DC on their website is current, that's
    4 starters out for the Browns including 2/3 of their DLine.
    As far as Green goes, the guy is a quasi-conman as far as I'm concerned.
    He gets PR for kicking in something like 20 or 40K for the DP for a single-mother's house (to get his #30 jersey from Simmons) and thereby looks like a good-guy while stiffing big Bobby for 6 or 8 mill, whatever. Pretty dang slick.
    So with Green out, do they suit 2 or 3 backs and is Walker the top backup
    in Cleveland for Dayne ?

    Possibly that is true. I was under the impression that Eric Moulds asked to be let go prior to the QB moves because he didn't want to be here and particularly didn't want to do another season of David Carr not throwing him the ball.

    With the moves we made at WR and the depth we had it's debatable whether or not Moulds would have even made this team had he stayed.

    With Green I don't get the impression that he's unhappy here (apart from being unhappy about being hurt) or that the Texans are unhappy with him about being hurt. I also get the feeling that we've mostly taken the hit to the salary cap with Green and that bringing him back to try and make the team next year wouldn't be much worse than the cap hit to let him go. A salary cap guru would know the answer to that but if I remember correctly we signed him for two years at 8 million dollars. I think the damage (what little there is) is done and if it looks like this is something he can overcome in the offseason and we can at least get one somewhat productive year out of him then where's the harm in letting him come back to compete.

    Of course if Darius Walker blows up out of nowhere and hits Cleveland for 165 yards and a pair of TD's (I know, not gonna happen) then all bets are off.

    I'm not against bringing Green back. I just wouldn't depend on a back that old. ANY back that old. It's just a bad plan. I guess it's worth noting that it wasn't the Texans plan either. They expected to have Chris Taylor waiting in the wings this year. It just didn't work out that way.

    So now you are questioning the guys character and acting like he came here with the intent to rip off the Texans?

    Pathetic.

    I agree. Nobody close to the Texans has even hinted that they do not believe that Green is really hurting. Poor form nunu.

    What? Dunno where you get the angle of him stiffing Bob, curious on your opinion of Joppru's time on the Texans' payroll and keeping the bench warm. Didn't take you for a Green hater...
