Is anyone surprised that nobody has signed him? Or did I miss it? I would love to have him as a backup. 

Surprised Yes 

 

Do I want him back.  Nope.  Not to be placed on the non active roster every week.   (which still baffles me).    Something is odd there  He must have lingering issues.

Well he missed a year due to very serious Achilles injury which RBs don't bounce back from all the time.  

 

He didn't see playing time last year, which is probably a sign that he was not 100% recovered. My impression was that last year was kind of a 'prove it' year on a one year deal, and there's not much to show for it.

 

I'm not shocked at all that he is still unsigned.  My guess is that he will get signed by someone but probably not for much more than the vet minimum (perhaps an incentive laden deal).

I hope he does well in Houston, he is a class act. I won’t forget the 1000 yard season he had for us, he had some real highlight plays that year. I also believe he played a large role in mentoring JT, more than we even know about.

Probably the best back Houston has had in some time.

you mean that trade where they got rid of Hopkins didn't work out???

I was genuinely upset for Marlon, he was a very good RB for us before his injury and all signs pointed towards the fact that he was about to take off. I wish him nothing but success in Houston. The dude deserves it and a big pay day.

All of this.

 

I loved Mack. He was seriously underrated around the league during his time with us, and the injury just sucked.

 

I hope he has a big season but I have a feeling his shot at getting a big payday are probably gone.

Theres not much wrong with Mack. They just couldnt pay him the money he deserves along with Hines and JT.   If given the proper chance in Houston he should produce. I like the backfield we have now though. I think Jackson has a nice skill set and he faster and bigger than Mack.

Hate to see it, but wish the best for him…just not during the games he plays us lol (performance wise)

He will probably gain 175 yards against us and they will upset us once - that is our luck lmao . We should've traded him last season and got a 4 or a 5 which would've been possible. Instead we got nothing for him. He is capable of having a good year because he will be healthy and is still young.

That’s one thing I would say, we definitely should’ve traded him for something even if it was a 6th or 7th

My guess is if there was something to get for him last year he would have been traded.  Look at how long he was out there in free agency.  He didn’t exactly have a big market.

I thought I remembered him having a small market, but that could’ve been Ballard splashing the water a little.  I could also see Ballard asking price too high for other teams, and so they lost interest.  We’ll never know at this point though.  I’m just happy he has a chance to play.  He was a pretty good back when healthy.  Could be a poor man’s Arian Foster for the Texans

    • Its not that Strachan was only a 7th round pick, so who cares?    Ballard and the scouts think they’ve uncovered a Diamond in the rough.   He’s 6’5” and 225 and runs 4.5.   And he played zero high level football until he came to the Colts.    Think of all of our draft video’s over the years where Ballard says we want traits, high level traits.   Those are things you can’t coach up.   And you can’t coach up 6’5” 225 and 4.5.   But we can coach up his ability to read defenses and the routes that he runs, and even his hands.   Those you can make better.    If you’re hung up on the round we drafted him in, think of it this way….  Had he gone to a Big Boy school like Georgia,  or Notre Dame, or USC, he likely would’ve been drafted higher.   The kid has raw talent.   We’ve given Patmon two years of polishing, odds are we’d like to give Strachan the same. 
    • I think they keep 6, and that Strachan makes the 53 man squad. As for Patmon, the guy looks like a TE these days. Been pumping that iron overtime. 
    • Probably more to do with the Colts and Chargers are fringe playoff teams that could be battling for the postseason that late in the year.  Should be a big game for seeding or possibly an actual playoff spot. 
    • All of this is just my guess. I really don’t care who makes it. I don’t have a dog in the fight. Just get guys that can contribute.
    • Well Coutee was on the PS most of the season last year. He didn’t go anywhere. I think everyone here is over valuing Strachan worth. Anyway only two of the three is still my guess as to who makes it. Will be interesting to see who it is. I really don’t care which two. I just say Coutee because he gives us some experience and the best replacement for TY body type. I just want to win.    I see Dulin as our new pascal. I think he could end up be a steady hand like Zach when needed. Yes I know. But nothing beats the steady experience of a guy playing on the field.
