Texans released RB Ronnie Brown.
Brown, 32, appeared in two games for the Texans, rushing six times for four yards and catching one pass for five yards. Houston will move forward with Alfred Blue and Jonathan Grimes behind Arian Foster. Former No. 2 overall pick Brown's career is very likely over. He's just a veteran presence at this stage.

And to think we could have had Aaron Rodgers...Ronnie had a couple good years but over all he did not pan out.

Yeah, but Aaron Rodgers supposedly had more "issues" coming out of college than Tannehill did. So he probably would not have survived in Miami. They would have started him from year one and by the middle of year two we'd be running him out of town.

I always liked Ronnie, it's too bad about his unfortunate injuries while he was here, when healthy he was a good RB and a class act.

Yeap. Just as anyone that thinks, had Miami drafted Brees that they would have waited 3 yrs in Miami for him is fooling themselves.

Why, because he is too short to be a tight end?

3 backs got drafted in the top 10 that year and none went on to become great. Thats strange considering runningbacks rarely go that high.

It was a really weak draft.

Ronnie Brown really was not a good running-back, especially when you throw in the fact he was drafted # 1 and the overall second player taken.

Cadillac Williams didn't fair well either.

Either did Benson, I believe there were 4 RBs taken in the top 10. I doubt that will ever happen again. RBs nowadays are plug and play. It's about QBs and lines.

Ronnie Brown was a good running back. He could do it all, excellent pass protector, pass catcher and a good runner.

Was he worth the #2 overall pick? Not when you look at what I think is the best QB in the NFL playing in Green Bay.

I remember being on the sideline for one of the games and asked Ronnie to give the camera a smile, he did. I asked the same to Jesse Chapman and he ignored every fan there. Ronnie is a class act and I wish him well.

I agree, imagine had we drafted Aaron Rogers, I believe he went low in that draft too, but I thought we would certainly go after Kyle Orton over Channing Crowder?

Crowder did have some memorable games, but lasted only 6 years or so?

If Miami had gone with Drew Brees instead of Culpepper we'd be talking about Brown like we do csonka or maybe even ricky williams. Imagine McMichael, Brown, Chambers, Bookers, Welker with Drew Brees and the defense that Miami had in 05 and 06. We probably would have won a super bowl and 2007 before the acl tear brown was on fire but he was carrying that terrible team dismantled by cam cameron

And Alex Smith who appeared to be a sure fire bust is somewhat striving. Had we taken him at #2 if he were there I wonder how long until we gave up on him.

LOL! This crowd would have run him out of town in less than 2 years.

No patience.

I would have run Alex Smith out of Miami. He sure didn't look like the SF franchise in his first 6 years. He never lasted a full season either.

We give up on QBs quickly around here. Guys like Brees that took years to develop would have been considered busts in Miami

True, but it seems like we are all right about it since no QBs moved on and did anything. We never had Brees so it's hypothetical. Who knows?

Brees was considered a bust in SD just before his breakout year....I don't think Miami gives up on qb's too quick...Who do you consider giving up on too fast?




We just haven't invested enough in the position.

Agreed. IIRC, Miami has only spent 4 1st rounders on a QB in 50 years (Rick Norton in '66, Griese, Marino, and Tannehill). The front office really hasn't dedicated a lot of resources to the position, and a debate regarding the fans "giving up" on QBs who have played here the last 15 years is pointless. All of the players sucked, and sucked bad after signing new contracts elsewhere. If anything we gave them even more time here than their play warranted.

That's because we've had terrible player development.

Miami fans do. We ripped Fiedler for all those years and the guy has been the best QB we've had since Marino left. Henne also comes to mind and we're seeing it again with Tannehill.

And we've had a poor player development for a very long time.

Ronnie is back with the Bolts. It is possible that we'll see him on November 2.

Quote:
The cavalcade of injuries in the Chargers backfield has led to a familiar name returning to San Diego. The Chargers announced Tuesday that they have signed running back Ronnie Brown.

With Donald Brown (concussion) and Ryan Mathews (knee) both injured, undrafted rookie Branden Oliver and journeyman Shaun Draughn are the only healthy runners on the roster.

Oliver has been a pleasant surprise this year, but Ronnie Brown offers knowledge of Mike McCoy's system and creditable play on passing downs. Brown spent 2012 and 2013 in San Diego before playing in three games for the Houston Texans this season.

"Any time you can bring in a veteran player with leadership and knowledge of the game is a plus," McCoy said Tuesday. "Ronnie is a team guy first, a great teammate and a true professional."

The news indicates that Donald Brown probably won't be back in the lineup this week. Perhaps the Chargers could break out Ronnie Brown in the Wildcat attack against his old buddy Tony Sparano, now the interim head coach for the Oakland Raiders.

Henne has done nothing since "we ran him out of town". Fielder is another guy that was a journeyman QB that threw picks at the worse time. Correct about player development, but at the same time, every team does that too. Some players need a change while for the most part, they just fade away once released.

Well, he went to Jacksonville. Put a guy with his skillset on a team with good receivers and a coach that knows how to develop a QB.

He was a good game manager and had a ton of heart. The guy was a winner and the Dolphins never got him good receivers.

Not every team does a poor job of developing players. The teams that are consistently competing for a play off spot do not.

I always asked why Saban didn't roll with Goose Frerotte for one or two more years and let Rodgers learn on the bench. But lets be honest, Rodgers would not have developed and would be retired or the next Joey Harrington if Miami had taken him. He landed in the right spot to develop and blossom into a future HOF QB.

Brown was a good player but was drafted at the end of the RB Era in football. If he was a 3rd round pick we'd be doing back flips about his production.

Anyone have a time machine so we can go back, have Miami hire a QB guru coach, draft Rodgers 2nd overall and then trade into the bottom of the 1st round to get Frank Gore? Dynasty? Happiness in Fins Country? Sadness now setting in... :cry:

Well, we will find out of he gets a 3rd chance after this year or the next. Some can play, some can't, and Chad is one that can't. Slow feet, slow mind, equals picks and thrown games.

He was a good game manager and had a ton of heart. The guy was a winner and the Dolphins never got him good receivers

I can respect your opinion Rich, I just look at it from a different angle. He never moved on and did anything great, he was a journeyman.

Yep, Seahawks are a perfect example. 5th 6th rd picks becoming probowl players. I believe our coaching staff doesn't get the best out of our players.

Henne is done, his window closed. But I think with a QB guru and that rocket arm the guy could have been good.

Best QB since Marino. Hard to argue otherwise, especially when you look at the 10-6 and 11-5 seasons... you can throw Pennington in there but he only played one season with us.
