Re: I'm Starting Another Betts Trade Rumor

These people look like total idiots if they cut Davis. Not only is he a quality, actually pretty damn good RB. He has proven in the last two years to be so. Plus, the idiots had the option of trading him during the draft and drafting Reggie Bush. Now how stupid would they look? No BUSH, NO Davis, now, a totally crappy running game. Houston would start to revolt.

Re: I'm Starting Another Betts Trade Rumor

I agree cutting Davis would be foolish but Reggie Bush wouldn't help the Texans stop the Colts offense and Houston can't keep up with them offensively even with two Reggie Bush's. Best tactic would be to bolster defense and pressure Manning. Mario Williams looked to be the best DE to do that.

Betts is still worth something to us. If they want Betts now, I want a 2nd rounder and a 4th rounder at least.
It's almost as bad as being a Raiders fan. They passed on Leinart and now have ....gulp...Jeff George.

Re: I'm Starting Another Betts Trade Rumor

my dad was telling me that when another, lesser known, RB was drafted the houston draft guys were disappointed. I think it was Jerious Norwood. apparently, they wanted to pass on Bush to get someone else, but they waited too long.

don't know how true this is, b/c my dad makes a lot of mistakes when it comes to the nfl (especially w/ names)

The debate will go on for years on who they should have drafted. I dont see how anyone could pass over a talent like Reggie Bush. I dont care what you need. As bad as they are, they are getting the 1st pick every round, and they could have traded Davis and gotten another 2nd rounder. For them to not pick Bush, now treaten to cut Davis, I have to wonder who is calling the shots for these fools.

Re: I'm Starting Another Betts Trade Rumor

very few RBs should be drafted in the 1st round (portis, stephen davis, etc are available in the 2nd-4th), but guys like bush and tomlinson are unquestionable.

Betts is good. A team with three and a half starting caliber RBs doesn't have much leverage for trading one. Teams waited to see if we'd cut one saturday.

I really do hope we have "three and a half" starting caliber running backs...but I find that hard to beleive when we averaged what, 2 yd per carry in the preseason with them....

I think Duckett and Betts both have good potential...but I feel much better with being 2nd string. And hopefully they both do well in the role...and then we have more trade leverage

I dont think davis will ever play again unless he can learn to deal with the pain and right now he cant deal with the pain,the doctors have told him it's not going to get any better then it is,theres always going to be pain. Davis was interviewed on the sideline the last preseason game and let the cat out of the bag,his knee is down to almost bone on bone,theres no fixing that,so if he can deal with the pain next yr he might make the texans roster 1 more yr,he cant be traded because he wont pass a physical

What is everyone talking about, why would we trade our franchise hb that has a huge contract? Portis isnt going anywhere, why do people think he is

He won't go anywhere while injured in any case!

Texans have signed Dayne anyway.
