he is young and fast he need to train under green and learn how to use the run game correctly and lundy will one day be great here, i mean even last season wali was number 2 on the team in rushing stats he had 476 yards and 4tds in 8 started games, ok so think about it if he would have started 16 games he would have like 1000 yards and 8 td's, with that in mind compare him to a few rookies from last year as well:

Reggie Bush with 8 started games had 565 yards 6 tds so if he started 16 he would have had around 1200 yards and 12 td's, wow wali is up there with reggie, Lundy had more 20+ yard runs than one Reggie Bush. (4-0), wow crazy huh? no not really we just have to give this guy a chance, lets not let go off him cause it could end up like drew brees bad in SD amazing in NO so lets not risk that.

wali is very talented the texans organization for some reason is not going to utilize him this year or atleast that how it looks, Lundy and Andre Johnson are my two favorate texans, one is a probowler allstar the other hasnt proven him self yet and i know he will! I personally think wali is more talented than ron dayne and can back up ahman, it makes me angry though that after a great rookie season the texans wont use him!

I didn't see the burst out of Lundy that I know we could have had with Chris Taylor. I think Lundy is a good backup, but not an everyday starter.

Dayne EANRED it last year, playing injured the last few games yet trying to carry the offense on his back. It's his to lose, IMO.

I have always been a fan of Wali Lundy, and while I think Dayne is the better runner right now, I'd like to see Lundy get a lot more carries because I think his upside is quite a bit higher than Dayne's

Lundy's a versatile back and has the same caracteristics as Green while Dayne is more of a Jerome Bettis. Since Green's under a conctract for a few years look for Lundy to take the #3 from Gado who gets cut or traded. So look for Dayne to get the get more snaps than Lundy because of his short yardage ability but if Green goes down Lundy gets the nod because of his versatility.

Just because dayne is fat and slow doesn't mean that he is good at short yardage or scoring. Our horrible display by the goaline shoudl show that

You need a nose for the end zone or short yardage to be a short yardage/scoring guy. Like Green was a few years back, or how LT was last year. Neither of those guys are fat or slow

Dayne is good for 2-10 yards a carry, but just because of his size, eh's not guaranteed 1-2 yards every time

For a late-round rookie running back, Wali had a damn good season last year. That being said, I agree that Dayne has earned first shot at the #2 spot behind Green.

My concern with Dayne is his inconsistency. Denver was ready to crown him their starting job a few years ago. But then he got hurt. He came on big for us at the end of the year last year, no doubt. He's a big reason why we beat Indy. And he had an awesome game for Denver against the Cowboys a couple of Thanksgivings ago. But that's his problem. He's hit or miss. I don't know if it's weight, work ethic, injury, fatigue, devotion....... But until he proves he can consistently be there (which he hasn't done in the previous 7 years), I'm hesitant to rely on him.

IMO, they are all mediocre at best. Obviously Dayne's already locked up the #2 RB anyways

This is why I pray Green stays healthy.:cool:

lundy's a good story, but dayne can grind out yardage.

Lundy had a couple of good games at mid-season last year. Then he disappeared. He didn't look all that great Saturday night either. He's looking like practice squad material as of right now.

I voted for Dayne, but I'd like to see more of Gado. He has a good combination of speed and power.

I agree, but with the amount of cap space we'll supposedly have and the draft, there's no reason all the holes mentioned can't be filled.:)

I partly agree on Greenwood. He most definitly isn't worth what he's paid, but he's still a hair above average.:gun:

but lol you guys we dont have morency so why talk about it, i think after this year lundy will prove that he can play, this is what kubi said the other day

"Texans head coach Gary Kubiak says Wali Lundy "is going to help this football team" this season.
Lundy is contending for the third-string gig with Samkon Gado and undrafted rookie Darius Walker behind starter Ahman Green and goal-line back Ron Dayne. He could help on third downs if he secures a roster spot. Aug. 2 "

and thats what i have been thinking wali is a great 3rd down back and thats where he can help us, as we all saw dayne cant do it , not even with 3 tries against a back up defense and wali can!

I don't think that's a good barometer of our running attack. After Von made the INT at the 16, we ran 4 out of 5 plays up the gut. And those were our twos.

I agree with you on two of those but we're set at LB. DeMeco, Greenwood, and Clark are the ones.

I'd like to know what you expect out of Greenwood.
- He was 2nd on the team in tackles with 111 (Dunta was 3rd w/83),
- He forced two fumbles (Peek was the only other guy with 2 FF), - - He had one INT - just like DeMeco (only guys who had two picks were Dunta & Petey Faggins),
- He registered one sack,
- He had 5.5 tackles for loss; only one fewer than DeMeco.

And doesn't he come out on obvious passing downs? Heck, given that, he had a solid year.

What is it you're looking for?

Is this the "I gotta see ESPY highlight reel material" mindset again?

Morency was cut loose for three reasons - in no particular order...
(1) Fumbles. You know caoches hate that.
(2) He's a dancer". Didn't quite adapt to the one-cut-and-go running style of this system
(3) Sherman had a chance to bring one of "his guys", Gado, to the team.

My money says either Taylor or someone who isn't even here right now.
- Green will be winding down his career or will get hurt - thinking he'll go the next three yrs unscratched is too much luck to wish for.
- Unless Dayne breaks out this year, he'll be gone or serving battering ram duty.
- If... wait, I need a bigger one....IF Chris Taylor makes a complete recovery, he will be "da man" in 09.
- Lundy, Gado, or Darius Walker will be our 3rd down guy by that time and we will have traded the other guys for 2nd day picks (maybe in a pkg with Andre Davis or Bethel Johnson - okay, perhaps I'm dreaming a bit here)

Okay, I'll shock the board and dodge the resulting tomatoes. Based only on performance in first game, I'll ask "Who should our starting RB be?" Green and Dayne and Lundy should me little to feel comfortable about. Looks like our offense may need to switch to the passing game.

If stats is your thing you should visit NFL.com and look at where Greenwood ranks in realation to his peers....

He's in a 4 or 5 way tie for 24th in tackles...He's tied with a couple corners and a safety....After that notice as you go down how many of the OLB's who have less tackles than him are killing him in sacks...then look at the interceptions....

I don't need stats to know when someone is a ball player or not when I can see them with my own eyes...If your immediate response is to turn to a stat sheet to 'prove' a player is good, odds are said player ain't all that...

Greenwood is not nearly agressive enough, he's a terrible blitzer and he doesn't cover all that well...

He has a lot of tackles but how many of those tackles do you remember ? How many times did he drag ball carriers down for losses ? How many times did he stop backs for no gain? How many times has he caused havoc in the backfield, near the line of scrimmage, or caused havoc period? How many times did he deflect a thrown ball or hit a reciever or back as they caught it ? What plays has Greenwood made to lead you to believe he's a baller ?

The guy is serviceable and when we find someone better he's gone...The WLB should be making all kinds of plays in this defense...

On the short yardage issue, Dayne isn't a short yardage back, I think history shows that, he doesn't have the instincts for it.

Lundy however had a reputuation as a good short yardage and goal line runner coming out of college, that was a reason we drafted him.

Dayne earned a shot at the #2 at the end of the year.

Lundy didn't at the beginning of the year.

However Gado proved that in Green Bay he was adequate at carrying the load as a starter.

On Morency I liked his speed and big play potential, but happy feet don't cut it in this offense..... maybe why Ron "I can't cut, if you gave me a hot knife and butter" Dayne does ok in our system.

Yep, the one cut system is the only system where Dayne isn't one of the biggest busts of all time.

I don't know why we didn't go after Duckett in FA this year. A leaner, meaner, faster big back that loves short yardage.

That's stating the obvious.
Neither side was going to make a trade to get a guy who would be worse for their team.

The point of my post was to outline why Kubiak thought (or so I'd heard) this was a good move. I'm not trying to change your mind.

I never said he was pro bowl caliber or even ESPY-worthy, I said he was solid.
As long as he makes the plays he needs to make to help us win, that's all I care about.

I brought up his totals only because it seemed that you thought he wasn't pulling his weight (perhaps I misinterpreted your comment). But as far as his numbers relative to THIS team, he sure seems to be. He had more tackles than the two guys that played the other OLB put together. What counts is, does he help us win or hurt us?

Obviously Kubiak & Smith think the LB position should be upgraded since we signed two F/As and drafted two youngsters to push the starters.

And I'm all for my team getting better.

Who is Greenwood competing with for tackles besides Demeco?

Saying he had more tackles than Two DE's converted to SLB doesn't exactly give me the warm fuzzies....

IMHO, Greenwood hurts us...He is a terrible pass rusher from his LB position...that hurts us.....He's bad in pass coverage....that hurts us....He's not agressive....that hurts us....He doesn't make plays on the opponents side of the ball.....that hurts us....I think someone mentioned that he wasn't on the field for passing downs...that hurts us...He's not a playmaker.....that hurts us.....


What has Greenwood done consistently to HELP us on game days besides rack up a bunch of tackles 4-10 yards pass the LOS....

We were a bottom ranked defense last year...That doesn't happen with
'solid' guys all over the place...

Lundy is not fast and he runs a lot lighter than his listed 211. He doesn't seem as adept in Sherman's power scheme as he was in the zone cutback stuff.

Beyond AG, our RBs don't excite me. Dayne is a plow. Gado is Dayne light. They can be effective but it sure won't be pretty. AG needs to stay healthy.

To answer the question, Dayne at #2 is the no brainer.

Ahman Green's reputation as a fumbler is far overblown. He has lost 14 fumbles in total throughout his long career.

Although his rap as a fumbler has been hard to shake, it should be noted that running back greats such as Walter Payton, Jim Brown and Tony Dorsett all fumbled more frequently than Green. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ahman_Green)

I second this! If Green goes down the season is in Schaubs hands.

After watching the Bears game AGAIN I noticed that Dayne should not have been used on that goal line stand. Green would've dove over the pile easily. The only thing Dayne does is lower his head and relies on his weight to get him yardage. On the 3rd and 1 play the Bears front wedged our line and basically dove towards the ground causing our line to pile. A vertical leap over the pile would've been 6. With Dayne's 2" vertical, it couldn't be done.:gun:

Oh well, he's the #2 back. So he was in with the twos.

I don't understand the Texans trying to use Dayne as a short yardage/power back. There is a difference between running the ball on 1st down and getting 2 yards falling forward vs. having to get 1 yard for a TD or First Down and the defense is trying to stop you...

Getting short yardage is a skill...It takes a good balance of the Offensive line getting some push and the RB having a nose for the End Zone or Sticks...

Agree overall but I don't think the Texans were "trying to use" Dayne as a short yardage back against the Bears. He was 2nd string and that was his time to play. It was however the perfect example to contradict all the folks around here that think big equals short yardage. Ahman Green, Emmitt Smith, Priest Holmes all are far better short yardage backs than many folks heavier than them--Dayne particularly.

But I thought I heard a while ago that the Texans wanted to use him as a short yardage back ????

Could be. I have heard a lot of fans say that, but don't recall anyone from the Texans saying it. Green's track record in short yardage is far better.

thats ur opinion but i dont agree at all, Ron Dayne is a beast and can start if we need him to as we saw last year, gado is fast and agile, lundy is a great 3rd down back and short yardage back but had four 20+ yard carries last season more than reggie bush btw, and AG is my only worry he is old and a fumble king u hit him right that ball will be out of his hands so fast.

This is misleading. Reggie may not have had as many 20+ yard runs, but how many passes at the LOS or behind the LOS did he take over 20+ yards?

Lundy is not fast and he runs a lot lighter than his listed 211. He doesn't seem as adept in Sherman's power scheme as he was in the zone cutback stuff.

Beyond AG, our RBs don't excite me. Dayne is a plow. Gado is Dayne light. They can be effective but it sure won't be pretty. AG needs to stay healthy.

To answer the question, Dayne at #2 is the no brainer.AJ, would a draw play be effective for a Lundy type back? Seems to me it would be.

Now, in what way does that contribute to the notion that Reggie Bush sucks?

In what way does that validate our selection of Mario? Come ON! Get behind your hometeam! :bat:

Who is Greenwood competing with for tackles besides Demeco?

Saying he had more tackles than Two DE's converted to SLB doesn't exactly give me the warm fuzzies....

IMHO, Greenwood hurts us...He is a terrible pass rusher from his LB position...that hurts us.....He's bad in pass coverage....that hurts us....He's not agressive....that hurts us....He doesn't make plays on the opponents side of the ball.....that hurts us....I think someone mentioned that he wasn't on the field for passing downs...that hurts us...He's not a playmaker.....that hurts us.....


What has Greenwood done consistently to HELP us on game days besides rack up a bunch of tackles 4-10 yards pass the LOS....

We were a bottom ranked defense last year...That doesn't happen with
'solid' guys all over the place...

This is pointless. Like we both said; as soon as someone steps up and outplays him, he'll be replaced. Just like anyone at any other position on the team.

Right now, he's the best we got at that position.

Maybe they're grooming Diles to take his spot...
