Well, finally some news out of Houston!




"We don't want to throw the ball 30 to 35 times a game," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "That's not our identity. We want to keep the quarterbacks healthy."
Matt Schaub (http://www.footballguys.com/SchaMa00-1.php) is healthy after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder and Sage Rosenfels (http://www.footballguys.com/RoseSa00-1.php) is one of the league's best backups. The coaches and players are comfortable with either as the starter.

"Matt was better this offseason," Kubiak said. "He's got a year in this system, and you can see a difference. He's gotten stronger and more confident. There's pressure on him to stay on the field, but knowing what kind of competitor he is, he wouldn't want it any other way."

Running the ball more will keep the QB alive longer! But all of this is pretty much standard coach talk. Its great to hear if you are an Ahman Green or Chris Brown owner, but the reality of this is there is a big difference between wanting to do something and having the ability to do something. If the defense puts the team in a hole or the run game isn't working, throw away all the wants in the world.

Houston Texans RV Chris Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowCh03-1.php) is already being forced to the sidelines with various aches and pains. Brown was signed to help spell RB Ahman Green (http://www.footballguys.com/GreeAh00-1.php), but Brown came with injury issues of his own. And those issues are already starting to creep up. He has a sore back that has forced him to miss this morning's practice. Manfull speculates that it's not a good sign for a player who has only played in 17 games with four starts over the past two seasons.

First of all I find it hilarious that the writer referred to Brown as an RV. Other than that, it looks like Ahman Green is your man if you are after a Houston RB.

Anywho, I might look at the rookie RB's on HOU as I don't see Green being able to handle the whole load himself.

Texans WR Andre Johnson (http://www.footballguys.com/JohnAn02-1.php) injured his groin Saturday.
"I just tweaked my groin a little bit," Johnson said. "That's about it. Nothing really major. I'll go in and get some treatment over the next two days and I'll be fine.

"I didn't tear anything or anything like that. It's hot out here. Sometimes those things happen. You have little tweaks and stuff like that. Other than that, I'm fine. It's no big deal. I didn't tear anything. I slowed down actually when I felt it tighten up on me. That was a good thing. Other than that, I don't think it will be a problem."

A couple of different sites show Johnson owners panicking a little, but at this point there shouldn't be cause for major alarm. If more develops from this, we'll find out soon enough.

Houston Texans starting RB Ahman Green (http://www.footballguys.com/GreeAh00-1.php) was injured on his first carry of the preseason. Green caught a short pass from QB Matt Schuab on the Texans first offensive play and limped off the field with a groin injury. Green did not contribute much last year after an early injury.

I don't think so. I wanted to move one of my main 3 Colts (Manning, Wayne, Addai) and only if I could get back a comparable player. KK did get the better end of the deal, but I now have Green and Slaton (which in my eyes is better than Norwood) in case Edge is shite and Romo, while not as talented as Manning, is younger and seems like he will be a top 5 QB for years to come.

I don't know why it sucks for me, but I'm happy with it.

i just think you gave up the two better players, that's all.

Manning > Romo
Norwood = Green (esp now with injury)

Manning > Romo
Norwood = Green (esp now with injury)

I would probably agree with this, I just don't think there is a significant difference. I am certainly taking more risk for this year (if Romo was a one-hit wonder or Green doesn't play) but I tried all last year and this offseason to make deals and I wasn't getting anything close to this value in return in my opinion (eg. would getting a top 5 WR who is 33+ for Wayne be a smart move? I didn't think so). I like Romo and can see him being a great QB for years to come. Manning is already a great QB and will continue to be one, but I question how much longer he can play at this super-high level, I question whether he will start getting hurt (I know he never gets sacked, but he's 32) and I also question how much longer the Colts will be a dominant team. I see Jerry Jones doing what it takes to remain dominant before I see Jim Irsay doing what it takes. (and Romo is 4 years younger...just hitting his prime)

End of the day though, if I didn't have Wayne and Addai as well (who I inherited), I would not have made this trade...but I did have all 3 and I wanted to change that (especially with Dallas Clark as well) and I feel I made the best deal I could make given the limited parameters I set for myself (must get back a top 5 player at the position I trade....and not a guy who's over 30).

PS: If KK wanted Norwood, he could have picked him immediately before I did...when he took Green!

Because Ahman Green (http://www.footballguys.com/GreeAh00-1.php) could be out for another two weeks with a groin injury, the Texans are signing veteran running back Marcel Shipp (http://www.footballguys.com/ShipMa00-1.php) to add more experience and depth to the backfield.
Shipp, who turned 30 this month, was waived by Arizona, where he played the last seven seasons after signing as an undrafted free agent in 2001.

He joins veterans Chris Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowCh03-1.php), Chris Taylor, Darius Walker (http://www.footballguys.com/WalkDa00-1.php) and rookie Steve Slaton (http://www.footballguys.com/SlatSt00-1.php) in a crowded backfield.

Marcel Shipp :rolleyes:

That Houston run core - yikes... Slaton could move up pretty quickly, however, at this point I only see him as a productive returner. Not sure what type of NFL game he'll provide at back.

RBBC in Houston...


Texans RB Ahman Green (http://www.footballguys.com/GreeAh00-1.php) is doubtful for the rest of the preseason because of the groin injury he suffered against Denver. As a result HC Gary Kubiak said he will use multiple options at the position. "We're not going back to one guy," Kubiak said. "We may end up playing with two or three of those guys, by committee so to speak, if Ahman's not ready to go." That includes rookie RB Steve Slaton (http://www.footballguys.com/SlatSt00-1.php), who will play with the first team Friday at Dallas. Chris Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowCh03-1.php) will start but Slaton will come off the bench. GM Rick Smith said the team signed veteran RB Marcel Shipp (http://www.footballguys.com/ShipMa00-1.php) so Chris Taylor can get more reps at fullback. Brown, Slaton, Taylor and Darius Walker (http://www.footballguys.com/WalkDa00-1.php) will be joined by Shipp, who is playing in his eighth season.

That's some committee... Get FlyGuy, Beanz, and Studz out there and they could likely produce the same numbers as Shipp, Brown, and Walker.

Dammit Fly....why did you set up Cook?? :lol:


Houston Texans FB Jameel Cook (http://www.footballguys.com/CookJa00-1.php) is free on a $500 personal recognizance bond after being arrested by a sheriff's deputy who reported finding marijuana in Cook's vehicle. Cook was stopped at about 7:30 p.m. Wednesday after the officer observed that Cook's Mercedes bore no front license plate or registration sticker. Cook had no valid Texas driver's license and no proof of liability insurance. "He gave the deputy a Florida driver's license that had been suspended in May 2008," Carlson said. The car's Texas registration expired in July 2007. The deputy searched the car and found a plastic bag containing two grams of marijuana, Carlson said.

First of all.... idiot for driving with a suspended license. Second of all.... idiot for not have insurance - come on Geico commercials are on every 27 seconds in the US.

I don't believe Cook is really that high up on anyone's depth chart, unless you play in a huge league with deep rosters.

The Texans held a non-contact, conditioning workout on Sunday and running back Ahman Green (http://www.footballguys.com/GreeAh00-1.php) participated. Green has hardly practiced since straining his groin in Houston's first preseason game on Aug. 9.
Running back Chris Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowCh03-1.php) did not participate in the drills because of a sore back that's lingered since the start of training camp. Coach Gary Kubiak said Brown was ``day to day'' and he didn't expect either Green or Brown to play in Thursday's preseason finale against Tampa Bay.

Rookie Steve Slaton (http://www.footballguys.com/SlatSt00-1.php), who rushed 10 times for 44 yards in Friday's game, also skipped Sunday's workout with turf toe.

Good for Green getting back on the practice field, but that RBBC in Houston is still in shambles. Brown - back injury. Slaton with turf toe. They need to clean house and bring in a whole new set of backs.

The Houston Texans and running back Ahman Green (http://www.footballguys.com/GreeAh00-1.php) have agreed to restructure their agreement, which will now pay Green $200,000 per week for every week that Green is on the active roster, beginning in Week 2 of the regular season. His 2009 and 2010 compensation packages have not been altered.

They should pay him $500 for every week he is on the active roster. He's hanging on but it looks like the Texans are very concerned about his health issues...which they should be.

King_Killah
08-31-2008, 09:25 AM
The Texans placed RB Chris Brown (http://www.footballguys.com/BrowCh03-1.php) on injured reserve today. Brown, who was signed to back up Ahman Green (http://www.footballguys.com/GreeAh00-1.php), has struggled with back problems throughout training camp. Houston now has Green, Chris Taylor and rookie Steve Slaton (http://www.footballguys.com/SlatSt00-1.php). Green has missed a good deal of training camp and preseason but should start Sunday at Pittsburgh. Taylor missed all of last season with a knee injury. Slaton, who despite a bout of turf toe should be ready by Week 1. HC Gary Kubiak said the team will likely use a committee approach until Green is completely healthy. "I think we very well could because you have to remember that Ahman hasn't played a lot," he said. "To all of a sudden go out there and start and think he is going to carry the ball 25 times this weekend, I think would be a mistake."

The NFL is a league of opportunity. This is clearly Slaton's opportunity to shine. If he can make a case early on, he may be able to grab the spot for good.

Brooke Bentley, of HoustonTexans.com, reports the Houston Texans will use OTAs, minicamps and training camp to determine the ideal complement back for starting RB Steve Slaton (http://www.footballguys.com/SlatSt00-1.php). The candidates currently include RBs Chris Brown, Ryan Moats (http://www.footballguys.com/MoatRy00-1.php), Jeremiah Johnson (http://www.footballguys.com/JohnJe01-1.php) and Arian Foster (http://www.footballguys.com/FostAr00-1.php).

Another contract dispute. But this case is different. Houston offered him a one year, $2.7 million. He has no contract right now, as far as I know, so I am OK with him skipping a voluntary practice. From what I see the team and the agent are talking and are discussing a long term deal. Daniels will be back with the team. I don't see him "holding out" until the deal is done.

That's about $625,000 too much...

Daniels done for the season with a torn ACL.



Owen Daniels has a torn ACL and is out for the season, according to the Houston Chronicle.

An MRI Monday confirmed Daniels' fears. It's a huge blow to the Texans and fantasy owners as Daniels was on pace for 80 catches, 1,038 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Texans' are expected to start Joel Dressen in Daniels' place, but rookie James Casey has the most fantasy upside. Daniels, who was working on a one-year contract, will now need to prove his health before next season.

This shit pisses me off every time. Dude signs a 6-year extension 3 years ago and get a $13mm bonus....now he's unhappy with his contract and skips the workout to make sure this is known. Maybe you should have signed a shorter contract fuckhead if you don't like the one you signed 3 years ago.

Being a bitch isn't the way to get a new extension worked out...but sadly that is what seems to work.Contracts mean nothing in the NFL. They can cut you just as easily.

Don't even get me started with NFL contracts. F*ck that. If a player is not happy with his contract, he shouldn't have signed it to begin with or get a better agent. I understand that NFL contracts are about a good as air freshener in a garbage dump and that teams can cut as they see fit, it still doesn't give the player the right to hold out. You wanna hold out, wait 'til your deal is up then hold out on signing with any team until you get your demand. If I was an owner, and one of my players held out...they'd sit. If they wanted to re-work their contract, by all means do what you are supposed to do, show up to camps, practices, show up to re-grout the lockerroom shower walls, I don't give a f*ck. Put the effort in. I'll be more than happy to listen if I see you doing what you are supposed to.

Alot of people are saying Houston is the front runner to land Nnamdi Asomugha, that would be huge for them, they just might win the divsion with him.

Guess they were worried about beating out the Jets and forgot about Philly. I do like Houston getting John Joseph and Dan Manning.

Damn. Looks like Schaub is out for the year with a "significant foot injury". Even with Mario Williams out, I liked their chances for a 1 or 2 seed.

Wowwwwwwwwww, devestating. Schaub is possibly the best QB in the league for the Texans offense. Fit them perfectly. Horrible.

Lisfranc injury. Ended my soccer college career. Still gives me problems to this day.

An awful injury and I can only hope with the Doctors he's able to use, he can get over it and not have any problems later on in life. It's a bitch injury.

Yeah. Liked. As in I liked their chances for a 1 or 2 seed based on their current record and schedule the rest of the way with Schaub as their QB.

In the shape injury wise and the way the defense has dropped off for the Texans towards the end of the season, I dont think Houston is a good team at this point of time.

I don't either, but I'll still call them a team that wouldn't surprise me if they suddenly turned really good. I think they have a lot of pieces.

Arian Foster is a top-3 RB in the NFL when healthy. JJ Watt is clearly the #1 player in the NFL by far, by a wide margin right now. He's just on another level. If Clowney, Cushing, and D.Hopkins stay healthy, that's a great run game, great deep threat, league-best pass rush, and a solid run stopping LB core (If Cushings can step it up, at least). Obviously they don't have a competent QB and that's more important than all those things but if they somehow stumble onto respectable QB play, they can do damage. I don't worry about their defense, their health luck has to be better this year.

I think they use their 1st to add another WR, because you really can't have enough cheap elite WRs. Maybe DeVante Parker or Devon White, or Cooper if by some minor miracle he slipped but that's not happening. Another elite WR gives them two cheap amazing stud WR to build a team around and make a little push for the next 3-4 years. A position that costs the Jets 20 million for 2 players not nearly as good as Hopkins+one of those rookies, and Houston will get them way cheaper for years. Not much different than how Seattle pushed on defense the last two years and got way more talent than they were actually paying for. WR are safe picks these days, the only safe skill position.
