Ever wonder why the Texans opponents don't have a live mascot?

Ron Dayne eats them as a pre-game snack.

Ron Dayne is so fat, that when he wear high heels he strikes oil.

Ron Dayne is so fat, that when he wear high heels in the morning, by noon they are pumps.

He eats Raiders and Saints for breakfast......

he said "kiss my ass", and I said "which acre"
He's got more rolls than Thanksgiving Dinner!
Ok, I'm done

Technically speaking Dayne can't be a bust for the Texans because we didn't draft him. He was signed for very reasonable money and has been a fairly steady back for us. He's nothing spectacular and never will be but when he's been given the lions share of the carries he's done a pretty good job. Look at his body of work since leaving New York and look at it objectively.

He spent one season mostly on the bench in Denver and he carried the ball 53 times for 270 yards. He averaged 5.1 yards a carry there in that system. Then he followed Gary Kubiak to Houston and when our young running backs failed to have an impact he became our primary ball carrier here. He started the season recovering from a turf toe injury but finished strong and ended with 151 carries for 612 yards and a 4.1 average.

This year he took a back seat to Ahman Green but Green was hurt at the beginning of the season and it's mostly been Dayne again. In 8 games he's run for 437 yards on 121 attempts. He's averaging 3.6 yards a carry but over the last two weeks that's turned into 5.0 yards a carry. Much like last year I think Dayne gets stronger as the season progresses.

I have always thought that the Giants didn't use Ron Dayne correctly. I don't think that's necessarily a big knock on them though because most NFL teams would pass on a guy who has to get that many touches to be effective. Dayne's "game" just doesn't translate well to pro football. He's awful splitting carries with somebody else (So having him and Tiki was a waste of time IMO) and the moment you fall behind and have to start throwing the ball you flush most any chance of him having a good day right down the toilet.

The one thing Dayne is great at is eating clock once you are ahead of the other team. Then you can keep handing him the rock and he builds up some steam. That makes him a situational player and not a feature back.

As long as he holds on to the damn ball I am happy with 2 and 3 yard gains.

I wish Ron could gain as many yards per rush as he does pounds when he takes his hourly "snack breaks"
