    Kubiak said RB Chris Ogbannaya is "making a big push" to make the team. Has made the most of his reps with Foster, Tate out


    Tate pull hamstring so what does this statement mean carry 4 5 6 rbs or trade some one we all think Slayton is gone Ogbannaya maybe pratice squad?

    I was glad to see we got this guy and didn't know when we picked him up. He is a good quality player. He can do alot of things out the backfield. He may be practice squad but I think the writing could be on the wall for Slaton.

    I don't follow college ball, so I have no idea who this kid is. If he can contribute to us moving forward, I say let's see what he can do. He should get his shot on Monday night and hopefully he'll make the best of it.

    Only so many roster spots ... As much as we'd like to hang on to some of these players , options are limited. Do you keep an extra OL , DL in case of an injury ? LB or DB ? Both have their questionmarks .... What about WR where the competition is fierce ?

    The Texans will face some tough cuts this time around.

    That is the best part of your post. I LOVE the fact that we have enough talent this year that it's gonna be difficult for the front office to decide who to let go!!

    Now, you hope that they make the correct choices.

    I say trade Staton while you can, if you can. Detroit needs help and I'm sure the Pats would throw at least a late rounder. I like Staton, but I think he could use a change of scenery.

    Maybe with Obawhatshisface on the roster and getting a few reps they might start showing some Texans games in ATX!

    He is a former UT runningback. Played behind Jamal Charles, was on the national championship team as a 3rd down type back. Played for St. Louis Rams his rookie year. He's a vet and he's stayed on a roster before. He was pretty good in a crowded backfield at UT.

    I'm officially on the Chris Ogbonnaya bandwagon for several reasons, first his last name, second he is from Houston, third he was a 7th round pick (should take nothing for granted).

    Looking at Wikipedia and NFL.com it looks like he is good for at least 4.0 ypc in a reserve role at UT and StLouis. Played WR, FB, and RB at UT and is a smart kid 4x First Team Academic All Big XII.

    Hard worker, good hands (ex-wr), smart sounds like a Kubiak guy to me outside of being a Longhorn.

    Can't wait for Monday!

    He coulda been really good w/ Texas if they had a decent offensive line, but now he's with Houston w/ a good run blocking team.

    You keep Foster, Ward, Tate and Oggaboga. Cut Slaton, nobody will trade for him because they know we have a crowded and DEEP roster of RBs.

    I mean, sorry it didn't work out like it did his first year here...but he's had two really invisible years since then. Not our fault. It happens. I think he hasn't shook the fact that he was The Man in 2008, slid down and got hurt in 2009, and got completely erased in 2010.

    That's gotta' suck to think you went from the top to the bottom THAT quickly. And I think it causes him to have problems here to this day. Cut the guy and see if he can catch on somewhere else. He has been a good guy here, character-wise, and deserves a chance to find a new place. I'd even let him go NOW so he has a chance to land somewhere else and get in camp with a new team.

    We're so accustomed to not having good STARTING-caliber RBs, nor depth, that we can't release the guy. It's bizarre to have been this dry and now we're flooded. So why hang onto him? We've got 4 guys and hell, we might can only carry THREE of those four! A 5th guy is over-over-kill.

    My $0.02.....
