Seneca's starting for Seattle. :shades: This should be fun to watch.

I agree with this. If this carries to next year, I see no reason to get a new RB. Build that secondary and o-line. We need those more than we need a RB.

Our RB situation is serviceable for an 8-8 team. With a good O line they'll be somewhat better. In the long run, we need a good RB. But the O line and the defensive backs need to come first.

Dayne will not last forever (unfortunately), but I've seen enough from Walker and Taylor to give them a chance to carry the load next year as we build our very weak spots. Hell, if Walker keeps playing the way he is...he could be that good RB of our future. He's got some pretty strong skills.

I think we are going to bring in a young running back to be the starter (draft or FA), Dayne will be the backup, and Walker and Taylor will fight for the last spot.

if taylor comes back healthy after only playing one year and walker after the same, we could do some damage if we improve the line. wouldn't that fit into kubiak's philosphy of system running backs?

I think if Walker can really get some consistency with his runs, and maybe put on another 15 - 20 pounds he can be a star.

EDIT: This is me eating crow for basically saying Walker is nothing more than a 3rd down back. He's looking pretty good today.

Our division this year is the winningest division in the history of the NFL. Of course, this is BEFORE this game. The 1975 NFC (north?) has the second winningest division. They showed and talked about this during the game on CBS. This years' NFC (East?) is also ranked #5 all time.

I'll take it to mean whatever it means which is... We're the toughest dvision in the history of the NFL. Heh!

Well I think the team is better than what we see on the field. Think about that Titan loss...Dunta makes a better stop and that's a win. Dunta doesn't get hurt who knows what happens from there on...if Andre doesn't misses 7 games who knows. We've lost a lot of close games that could have gone our way if we had one extra big play. 8-8 is pretty good considering everything IMO.

True, but that's life in the NFL. Depending on what we do in the offseason, we have the ability to hit the 10-6 mark next year.

Yeah I'm not using the injuries as a excuse, I feel next year we CAN reach the next level...no reason to think we can't. I'm saying if everone stays healthy next year...who knows.

The Jags went 8-8 last year...this year a lot of their guys stayed healthy and look what happened...

Not trying to get expectations up, I just think we do have chance (if we make some good moves here in the next few months) to reach the next level.
