    I saw that as well, not sure, but it's worth giving people a few looks.

    Moats looked good on his touches on Sunday it was against the Raiders, but I am glad to see him get carries and do well.

    Is he still practice squad eligible? I dont see him as an upgrade over any of the RBs currently on the roster but the team might be looking at him as this week's practice squad mimic back.

    Don't we already have an RB named Chris from the Titans? Let's give this guy the flu and send him back. LOL

    I don't know man, the kid has some skills. If anything he has alot of speed. Aside from Slaton we don't got a guy like that.

    Much like the situation at safety when Pollard was brought in. I'm happy to see that the staff is looking to upgrade what isn't working right now. Who would've thought our running game wouldn't be at least operable right now.

    I saw that on PFT. He's going to stop at Washington first, and they're worse off than we are at RB. I expect that he'll sign there.

    Physically, he's just what we need.

    The guy is a total bust... and he isn't a power back. He's another looks like Tarzan runs like Jane kinda guy. A faster, but softer Jonathan Wells.

    The judge once referred to him as "the one man crime wave." Now, if he could have earned that nickname on the field..........................

    He's talking about the RB, not the WR.

    Yes. If you're on the "Sign Chris Henry because he gives us a power back" bandwagon, you clearly have not seen him play in person. He sucked in college, he sucked with the Titans, he'll still suck tomorrow. Titans went beyond stupid to pick this gym-rat in the second round. Got to hand it to Chris Henry, he made a lot more money than he should have by posting stupid numbers at the combine. Only one team was dumb enough to ignore his actual field stats. Looks like Tarzan, plays like Jane.

    there were more than one teams looking at him. i'm sure that Al Davis was looking for him at his next pick and other's would've gambled on him. high risk high reward player. the Titans have done it twice in the last few years. hit huge on one, missed huge on the other.

    Not really comparable.

    One back was actually highly productive in college........the other wasn't even a blip on the radar.

    Chris Johnson backed up his college productivity with a amazing combine........Chris Henry was nothing, but a workout warrior who didn't do crap in college.

    A runner like that can get by in the zone system when the OL is blocking it well. just need to read and go. Of course, Henry did not look like he had any natural instincts to read holes in the times hat i saw him play in pre-seasons.

    That is exactly the thing. Need the instinct for the first cut and a 1-3 step burst. Man I wish we could have seen DD run behind an Alex Gibbs coached line.

    Moats has turf toe and is day to day. I suspect Brown'll be fine. The swine flu really isn't all that debilitating and you should certainly be over it (though maybe not 100%) after a week.

    What about Foster? Can we activate him for a game or two? Or does that screw his PS eligibility up? I plead ignorance on Practice Squad callup rules.
