It remains to be seen if Morency is the better back or if DD will reach his goal of 2000 yards, but either way it will be good competition and make the Texans a better team.
Wouldn't it be nice if DD got 1,400 yards which is very obtainable (1188 last year with bad start) and Morency got 800 or 900 yards. That would be the 2,000+ yard back that we would need and everyone would be happy. A Healthy DD if we made it to the playoffs, less carries and a hellova back up. Would be like Curtis Martin and La Mont Jordan. I'd be happy....very happy and with a situation like that, I could see Carr passing for over 3600 yards and 25 sacks like the year before this last one.
