    Probably belongs in another thread but I am thinking Tate is PS material at this point, can't control injuries, but he's missed too much time going back to last year.

    Pretty funny how Kubes says Casey can't get hurt, just can't.

    If there is one thing I hate about football it is the injuries.

    You realize we would have to waive Tate and give the other 31 teams a shot at getting him before we can PS him right? You do know some other team will gladly take him for nothing right?

    This not a good plan.

    So let them pay his 2nd round salary to sit in the rehab tub.

    Honestly, if he's not ready to go that's what I'd do.

    Thing is, Tate has a lot of upside. If he is healthy and contributing he can be one he'll of an asset.

    I'd rather see that $405K check have Foster's name on it. He's earned it.

    but I've agreed not to harp on this any more. Could be that this is just a bump in the road and he heals up in the next couple of weeks and becomes part of our 2000+ yd rushing attack. At least I'm hoping that's how it unfolds.

    I bet Arian doesn't. His check says $525,000 IIRC.

    No, no... I meant Arian would get his current $525K PLUS Tate's $405K. Arian's worth $930K, don't you think?

    Casey looked very good today, getting reps at FB & TE. He's a very tough cover for LBs and his versatility (lining up in the backfield, on the line, in the slot) is crazy. I think Casey will become a big story this season.

    Thanks. Couple of things, have you seen him in pass protection, a goal line situation, and has he carried the ball yet? I realize he may get no carries all year, but at some point a cute play will be ordered up.

    Texans version of the Wildcat? If we can utilize him effectively, oppossing D's would have a hell of a time gameplanning. 2 backs out of the backfield that can catch and run? With AJ and OD on the field? Pick your poison. 200 yds rushing or 300+ passing.

    Could you tell anything about his pass protection?

    Great post. That's what I'm talking about. He has to be able to block well too, but the other dimension he brings could really bedevil other teams. If used correctly, Casey could really help the Houston offense to become almost unstoppable.

    That is a big reason I was not sad to see Leach go.

    Casey has the ability to make this offense much more dynamic. And at the same time I think vickers will serve a purpose as well.
