    UPDATE: Check that - we're actually meeting with him tomorrow (Wednesday)

    According to Rotoworld, he's a perfect fit for the ZBS.

    He's injury prone, but younger than I thought he was. He's 26... 27 in April.

    Man, it's going to be a crowded backfield in training camp.

    Yeah, but he runs straight up.

    Who else runs straight up? Adrian Peterson. Oh, and Eric Dickerson.

    Hey - we're about to sign the next Adrian Peterson!

    WOOT WOOT!



    In all seriousness, I'd rather have Chris Brown taking handoffs than Ron Dayne.

    I don't like the idea of patching together as many injury prone RBs as you can and hoping someone makes it out in the end. It's like RB Russian Roulette

    I doubt we'd even show the slightest interest in him.

    I would rather have him that Dayne.

    We've been interested in Chris Brown since before DD was out of the league forever. And every year we have this exact same discussion, weaken the Titans, He is a hard runner, delivers a solid punch. And every year he goes back to the Titans.

    I really do hate the offseason.

    I do not believe Chris Brown would be considered as a replacement for Dayne in that he does not tend to do well in the Red Zone.

    I would rather have a week old half eaten pancake from the bottom of a Luby's trash can, than have Ron Dayne back.

    I don't think they ever gave him the chance to be "the man" in Tennessee, so maybe a change of scenery is what he needs.

    Out of 80 possible starts he had 29. He never started or played in a full season worth of games. He played in 54 out of a possible 80 games. He either was hurt or not good or both. He broke 1000 yards once. And barely did it then. He failed to score a TD in 2 out of his 5 seasons. I don't want him.


    If comes here I'll jump on his bandwagon just like I did Greens but I would rather go into the season with what we have than to pick him up.

    How is this different from Ron Dayne? Did Dayne become "Dangerous" in the red zone and I didn't get a memo?

    Brown is a frustrating type player. he does not totally suck, but between his injury issues (never really major) and just enough fumbling he drives a person to :gun: :shots: :hairpull:

    Ohhhhhh.... forgot about the fumbling.

    As much as Kubiak hates a fumbler, why are they bringing him in? Isn't fumbling what kept Taylor on the bench during the '06 campaign?
