The Houston Texans released RB Ronnie Brown today and I am sure that will have some people talking about adding the veteran back onto our roster all over again. The Chargers already signed Shaun Draughn onto the roster to fill the hole that was left by Danny Woodhead, but would the team have gone with Ronnie Brown instead if he was avaialable.

With the running game looking like trash early in the season, the team is searching for answers. I don’t think it is Ronnie Brown, but there were some people out there that liked what he did with the team.
Truthfully, Donald Brown should be as good as Ronnie is on the field. He should be able to at least provide that level of talent on the field. He should be better than that. He just has not been running well to start out the season.
We don’t need Ronnie Brown on this roster at this time. The team needs help blocking up front and also needs Ryan Mathews back on the field.
AS much as I would love one guy to come in and save the world in the running game, we all know that it is not Ronnie that will make that happen.
In order to fix the run game, the team will need to play better at a number of different levels. There are other players that are available that would serve this team better than Ronnie. This could be the end of the line for Ronnie.
