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.

 

Edit: Just saw krunk’s tweet. Oops.

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.

    • My God, you're right...   It's a conspiracy, man.   If Reich know tha hez company loyal to stand by the nonsense and the obvimously lack of talent an holes on diz roster then then he knows that if he shows JB can't reaf his progrezions den the opposing teams will have the advantage! Reich try to tank for a top 10 pick! We all know it!   BACK TO THE PILE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!               *I lost today's internal battle, because of my brother to the north... A certain south park song I am dieing to use as justification
    • If VM is saying it, it's likely because he's parroting what management is saying. Not saying it's not true, or true, just saying there's always a narrative. 
    • The lack of light front carries is either play calling, or JB's choice. Light front carries may also be down simply because of down and distance when facing light fronts. I'm guessing this goes at least partly to JB's struggles with reading Ds.   And using "stacked box" stats are very imperfect. It's not always about what how many are in the box, it's what those guys do when the ball is snapped. The stacked box stat typically only measures 8+ defenders in the box at the time of snap. What it doesn't tell you is what the front seven does. Do the LBs play the run or go into coverage is the more accurate measurement, along with how much nickel and dime coverage you see.    If I were a D vs JB, I'd go standard package (no nickel/dime) most of the time, and have the LBs play run or shallow crossing, which is what we are generally seeing. 4 DBs on standard downs is sufficient vs our current O.  I'm going to say Reich and JB are making it more predictable. If the passing game is more successful, and the play calling isn't as conservative, we're not having this problem at all. Like I said in a previous post, very few team have RB1s that are dynamic in both running and passing. And honestly that's not Reich's O. Mack is 12 of 14 (yes only 14), so he's been very reliable. It's more lack of targets and play calling if anything.  He is an APB. An APB does not run it between the tackles often, and that's what Reich typically calls for him... An APB is a change of pace back that is usually more edge, sweep, receiving,  and gimmicky. I'd say his "average" play, is a product of use type. White rushing is 32 attempts for 104 yards, and a 3.3 average. Hines is 22 for 66 and 3.0 with mostly between the T rushes. Last year with Luck, Hines was 85/315 and 3.7 rushing.... do you see the difference....  Yes it's rare to have a stud #1 RB that excels in both. I think we are under utilizing Mack in the passing game, and I think Hines is hampered by both rush play calling, and by JB in the passing game. That's what they numbers suggest anyway. 
    • Humility is on the path to enlightenment...   Some-ish like that...   I try and remind myself daily lol
    • Ha, ha, ha.....whatever psyche job Reich wants to use. Brissett must be mentally fragile.
