    For those saying that OB wont use RBs in the passing game... do you remember when he had Arian Foster?

    Foster played 13 games in 2014 (OB's first season) and had 38 catches.

    2015 he played 4 games and had 22 catches.

    Obviously the Texans haven't had a RB with Arian Foster's skills as a pass catcher... until now.

    Did I miss something? Is Coutee fighting for a roster spot? Knowing how imperative he being healthy in the slot why is he even playing or at the least returning punts?

    I'd be more appreciative if he'd roll down a hill over a cliff.

    His chin would only act like a parachute and he would land softly on a contract extension.

    Way too steep of a price, for a guy who is making a lot for a RB in 2020, 2021. 4-5M Who is 26 with minimal upside. For those saying they will have an extra 3rd next year, the price is still the price as if there aren’t plenty of holes on this team that don’t need to be filled. RB is the most plentiful least scarce position, and more than likely there would be someone cut and/or a PS that wouldn’t have cost this much draft stock and salary. This smacks of a desperation move, BOB already wears too many hats as it is, now he’s the wheeling and dealing GM. What I don’t understand is that when they didn’t draft an RB, most people were like well they must have some confidence in Foreman, well that was wrong, and now instead of adding a cheaper player with some upside, they’ve spent precious draft capital on a guy who contract puts him 11th highest paid RB on an average year basis.

    Ok, all things considered we put ourselves in this position. Again the pain of not drafting a serious running back and now having to give up a precious draft spot to fill a need. NowI see it as a good thingy that we were able to add a RB that can really help our team.

    We could have had Damien Harris in third round instead of NE getting him. Based on tonight's game only Higdon might be real deal eliminating Duke Johnson in 2020 saving 4 million dollars cap space. Also Crockett looks good to replace Lamar Miller after season. Still early let's see.

    Well glad to see we did help improve our running/passing game. I wonder what we could get if we put Bill Obrien on the market, hell I'd take Mr irrelevant in next years draft.... :barman:

    Lol..some of you guys i swear man.. We needed some rb depth & a guy that would enable us to pass it more to the rbs, & we went out & got 1 of the best available...the type of trade many of these same folks said wasn't going to happen b/c of supposed incompetence or just flat out conservatism. The "5 headed monster" just wasn't going to do it. Then, it happens. Now the talking point for these negative nancy's is " we gave up too much!...........the value is off etc"...

    Listening to the morons on 97.5 this morning saying this exact thing..."the browns were gonna trade him anyway...why give up a 3rd/4th...the value was around a 4th -5th & we could've had him, i don't understand why they gave up what they gave up..".wah, wah, wah.

    hey idiots, the value of something is whatever someone was willing to give up for it... & if the Pats or some other org got into an injury situation & had paid the exact same price to get him, these same idiots panning what we gave would've been up in arms b/c we needed the depth but we just weren't "aggressive" & too stupid...or whatever.

    Furthermore, we've had 2-3 very experienced....& inexperienced GM's in the past...& none of those guys were exactly killing it with trades either.

    All the draftniks talking about "well we could've gotten this rb in the draft... or that rb in the draft instead of giving up what we did to get Duke" Yeah well we did that already with Deonta Foreman... didn't pan out so great...Plus, none of those guys had played a down of NFL football. At least with Johnson we know that he can play & be very damn good in this league.

    Dude could be very well worth what we gave up for him considering the absymal 3rd-4th round draft history of the Texans....Nix....Devier Posey, Brennan Williams...Jaeleen Strong, Deonta Foreman, Braxton Miller...Antwan Molden...Lol do i need to continue?

    Just because a team has missed in the third doesn’t mean the value of the pick is in any way diminished. So if this team had whiffed on 1st rounders should they start throwing them out like last weeks meat loaf? There’s a reason this is the highest pick paid for a RB since Richardson, RBs don’t carry that much value, BoB over paid period, it was a panic move because they poorly planned for the position, put too much stock in Foreman, didn’t draft an RB or sign a guy. Now you pay a third, and on top of that the guy is gonna make big money for a RB.

    You only have your picks and your salary to build your team, a finite set of resources, over paying for a player means you have less of these resources to fill other holes, and this team has some holes. Vastly overpaying in both aspects for a guy with little upside isn’t a smart move for long term success.

    I swear, the Texans could pull an Astros like turn-around and win 3 of 4 superb-owls and Houstonians in general and this board in particular gonna b!tch because things aren't done their way. Talking heads as bad as any. Team has lots to complain about, but we should throw in the towel before a real down of real football is played? FK this bshit!
