Recommended Posts

Depth with Ware on PUP.  Foreman coming off torn Achilles.

I actually like Foreman quite a bit.

 

However, I'm starting to wonder if Ballard isn't quite comfortable enough with our top 3 RB's. We usually carry 3. Will Wilkins stick?

Ware is taking a injury settlement and if he plays again this year it will be with a different team.

Me too. I wanted him out of college. Injuries have set him back but if he is back at 100% I think he could be a stud.... But he has to prove it to make the 53.

This really is interesting. In the update from camp today he said Williams had like 3 TD.

Can totally see why Ballard picked him up.  Still very young and was a stud in College at least.

Also think Reich got on the table for Foreman.  He's built like Blount and Blount did well under Reich.

Me too.  I really liked him in college.  I read where he was waived because of work ethic.  If true something definitely went wrong in Houston.  Hopefully he comes in with something to prove.  Great move by Ballard.

The Texans placed RB D’Onta Foreman on waivers. They weren’t happy with his work habits. RBs on the roster are veterans Josh Ferguson, Buddy Howell and Taiwan Jones and undrafted rookies Damarea Crockett and Karan Higdon Jr.

I don't like the bolded of course but I'm sure he's betting on our culture and locker room.

Love this move, they kept Ferguson over him. Have to question this football acumen. Foreman vs Williams for the 4 spot as power back should be a fun battle.

If this works out like most of our waiver claims before the season starts it is going to be great.

Interesting we are close to the bottom of the list for waiver claims and no one took him before us.

Apparently, the Texans waived Foreman because of work habit issues.

Loved the prospect in college. Obviously he’s been injured and struggling in Houston. Not expecting much but have to admit, the potential gain here is pretty exciting.

Now thats better.  I like the physicality he can add to our stable of runners when healthy.

He's no Chuck Foreman but a pretty good back if he can work on that attitude issue that helped lead to his waiver.

Nice. He was one of my favorite running backs in that loaded 2017 draft class. Looking forward to seeing what he can do here.

Liked him a lot coming into the league but I'm wary with the achilles and work ethic/attitude questions. We'll see, I guess.

I trust Ballard completely, but was thinking the same thing. If these are their backs and they cut this guy...it makes me wonder. In Ballard we trust.

Lamar Miller is their starter, he’s a good RB.  It does fall off quick after him but they’ll pick someone up. Maybe Ajaye or even trade for Gordon.

scary.  Haha

but seriously, that and the bad work habit comments dont sound  likecBallard traits.  But i guess you dont know if you dont kick the tires yourself.  Ballard is thorough, thats for sure.

No risk move, but I prefer Williams...

Coming off an Achilles and has a low work ethic...

If he works out, he will be nice depth behind Mack. I don't see him making much of an impact, but maybe a change of scenery was what he needed.

This is the Texans subreddit. It is quite funny.

 

 

 

Hilarious.  I like “They’re playing 4D chess while we can’t even open the checkers box.”

 

That’s one of the few comments that can be quoted here.

I thought  this might happen as soon as the texans released  him. Not sure he'll make the 53 because  of his effort. Hopefully  getting  cut lit a fire in him.

If this guy still has PS eligibility left I won’t be surprised if he is eventually put on the PS. This could be a similar situation to Collins.

    • Here's where I think Kelly 'fans' are distressed. To your point we don't know Kelly...fair.  So what do we know.  We know he can run, dude's fast.  We know he has a strong arm, like that.  We know he'll throw downfield and into tight windows, good!  We know he will stand in the pocket, check. We know he has the stuff to go into Alabama with an Ole Miss team and beat em, that no small thing. We also know he has off-field issues maybe he's grown up, don't know but we hear good things from Frank.  So to someone like me, I like what I see and like what I hear...Rally confused.   Here's what we know about Hoyer, he has none of those physical attributes but he's good in the QB room.  Ok, well, I'm good in QB room but you wouldn't want me under center.  There's an obvious hesitation here on the part of Frank and/or Chris to make Kelly a part of the permanent roster, they will likely cut him again and hope he clears waivers over Hoyer, that to me is absolutely stunning.  Either, Kelly is an off the field nightmare we shouldn't be investing in OR he should be at worst QB2. Hoyer is simply not good, we can get his level of performance literally anywhere, he's the prototypical failed backup and those are readily available on the cheap. I wouldn't understand keeping him over a contract when he weakens the team relative to someone like Kelly on game day.  So to a previous posters comment, why is Kelly here?  If he is such an integrity issue it's not our job to make a man out of him while he occupies a spot.  If he's is good enough physically, which he is, and he's on this roster, which he is, he should stay up and get some first team reps, as all back ups should and see how matures.  It starting to feel like some ego at play here.  All in all, our leadership was ill-prepared to deal with Brissett going down and choked this week in prep.  It's my hope we dump Hoyer who is useless and keep Kelly at QB2, I don't think that will happen.  My 2+ cents.
    • Willis ran in the low 4.5s in both his pro day and combine. No offense, but the articles on Colts.com are always very kind to the guys we draft. Like I said, love Willis, I just think he's more of a box guy. And low 4.5s is fast enough. He's field fast in the short space, which is great. 
    • Ok, read the following, and let me know specifically what you disagree with...   On Parcells.... https://nypost.com/2019/09/08/why-jacoby-brissett-has-a-big-backer-in-bill-parcells/   I love BP. Old school dude. Keep in mind he was a "defensive" coach. Do you remember the Bruner/Simms fiasco when he was in NY (not sure how old you are). Even BP admits he made the wrong QB decisions. At NE, he drafted Drew B with the first pick his first year, and then he bolted for NYJ after a few years. He didn't last long there either. When he was at Dallas, they were all over the place with QB.   I give him props for the two SBs in NYG, but he's also had some bad years and a lot of first round and WC losses. I don't think of him as a QB genius at all. It's pretty clear BP is more sold on JB's character than talent. And that's fine too. But his endorsement doesn't weigh heavily from a talent perspective given the entire context.    As far as Belichick is concerned, he's a genius on many things. And he's also a D guy. Aside from Brady, what is his track record for QBs? His HC gig with the Browns was a real mixed bag. At NE, since Brady, he's drafted 10 QBs. The majority of them never amounted to anything. Aside from Cassell (who had more downs than ups) and Jimmy G, the rest were bombs.    And JB was third on their depth chart, and IIRC they were shopping JB after the deflate gate and injury time was done. Not saying BB isn't a genius, or a great at evaluating .........  but the other 8 QBs did nothing, and what does that say about him? Love to hear the explanation.      
    • Yea that’s what his combine profile states but when the scouts took him through position drills and had him run his 40 at pro day their numbers tell a different story. And anyone can tell you a 40 yard dash is all about technique. Track speed doesn’t necessarily translate to “On the Field Speed” but I found the article and verbatim this is what the scouts said on Willis. If you’re curious to read the entire article it’s on Colts.com and titled “Through the Scouts Eye”   “So, you see him not only playing in the box, but I mean, he's played free safety. He plays nickel. He's played on the slot and he did a pretty good job with that. I think he's faster than a lot of people and a lot of people give him credit for it and he tested pretty well that way. I think he ran in the 4.4s, and he's a very well-rounded player. I was always taught a long time ago slow safety usually get your beat, dumb safeties always get your beat. He's the polar opposite of both. So, we're really excited about him.”
