    I loved reading those Chris Brown trade reports. (I'll skip the "I told you so")
    Brown was the best RB we had in 2005 which doesn't say much. Everytime he was knocked to the ground you could hear a collective prayer, "Oh please, let him get up."
    Aug 13, 05 it was his hamstring
    Sep 18, 05 it was a concussion
    Oct 23, 05 it was his shoulder
    Nov 27, 05 it was his ankle
    Dec 16, 05 it was his elbow
    Dec 21, 05 it was his shoulder again
    Dec 24, 05 sat out 4th with an injury I can't remember
    He had potential, the injuries got in the way.

    because he was 6'2" and couldnt get much leverage as a blocker

    Lendale should rule the day. I think he's going to be a bad ars and it seems like running back is a pretty easy position to come in and play immediately as long as he can learn the blocking schemes fast enough. Seeing how he's played under the Chow system before I'd say it shouldn't take him long to get comfortable.

    We'll see what Lendale can do.............

    In the mean time Brwon should be our #1 Rusher, our guy at that position, I remember Fisher saying the same thing.

    After his 2005 performance, I can't think of too many teams that would want to keep him............including the Titans.

    They won't. They are happy with Barlow and Gore.

    I'd say the Jets are realistically the only team that would take Henry from that list.
