    Since Travis Henry is not to happy in buffalo and will problably want to be traded next year, maybe we could pursue him since noone seems to be happy with our RB situation even though i like D. Davis !

    isnt he injury prone?

    if he is available to us.. he may be a nice pickup. Though I dont know that he will be any better than D.Davis.

    Travis Henry will probably cost a 1st or 2nd to get him. He just doesnt seem right in the style of Football you guys play.

    I think the Bills are going to want to get rid of his salary pretty bad with McGahee apparently going to be there awhile. 4th rounder is about what Id expect.

    think travis henry is some version of Free Agent after the season, but i think that list includes the following names

    shaun Alexander
    E. james
    rudi johnson
    Lamont jordan

    and a pretty good year at the top of the draft for Rbs
    Cadillac, Benson among others

    If the texans are not happy there are more options to do something about the running game than in most years.

    Seattle has to re-sign Hasselback also, so there is a chance that Alexander may be gone.

    I think hasselback will stay though.. he is the man in Seattle. they will franchise tag Alexander.

    I cant really think of any other place Hasselback can go and be "the franchise QB"

    They have been putting the franchise tag on Walter Jones(LT) every year, so they have some huge decisions to make.

    I just really dont see them getting rid of Alexander... he wins the games for them. To my knowledge they have noone behind Hasselback that could take over.. as for Walter Jones.. he is in his 8th year.. still has about another 4 years.. but Alexander and Hasselback are in their 5th and 6th year. I think keeping them two and letting jones go if necessary, would be the better move for their future. They dont want to start rebuilding so soon after they finally start making playoff runs

    Personally i think D. Davis will get back to his old form and be fine, i doubt we drafta a RB, and dont think we really need one, i still believe in Davis

    If you do draft one makes sure its ROnnie Brown. He sure does look like a good runner! :jumpbanan

    Their offseason will be interesting to say the least. I think you have to keep your franchise LT though.

    I think that D.Davis is better than all the guys available.. except Shaun Alexander.. and I dont think we will be able to get him... not without paying more than we want too.

    DeAngilo Williams actually looks pretty good to me, and he plays in Conf USA so he would be a later round draft pick but looks ver solid !

    Just a bad year for Davis i expect him to play solid for years to come,,,and look for him to have a good second half of the season. He was starting to pick it up in Denver !

    Yeah well whatever ya think,,,solid 3rd down back huh,,,isnt he the one that couldnt get 1 yard in denver ?!?!?! Well in my opinion he has to much skill to be just a 3rd down back or kick returner,, every back has a bad year i bet ya werent saying this about him last year when he was having back to back 100 yrd games !
