The Texans have three running backs at their disposal this week. Hmm, does that bring any other teams from recent memory to mind?

"It reminds me of the backs we had with D Ward, Brandon and Bradshaw," Justin Tuck said of the Earth, Wind and Fire combination that led the Giants to the top seed in the 2008 playoffs (but not much beyond that). "They have Ward, Foster and Slaton. They’re all different kinds of backs, but very effective."

Paul Schwartz from the Post asked Tuck if Derrick Ward reminds him of Derrick Ward.

"Absolutely not," Tuck said. "He looks more like a Bradshaw now. He's lost a little weight and gotten healthy."
