Default Fortune shines on Morency?

http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/...t/3553435.html

"Meanwhile, backup Jonathan Wells, an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, is trying to put together an impressive finish despite a thigh bruise that's roughly the size of a football.

Wells will be evaluated daily this week, leaving open the possibility that rookie Vernand Morency will make his first start. Morency is trying to prove he is ready for a larger role next year or enhance his chances of being traded"

Oh dear oh dear, I'm getting real excited!! 4 quarters of Morency, at last we get to try our rookie turbo-engine in a game!!
Morency reminds me of a puppie, waaaay too much energy and a will to please and play

About friggin time. Just in time for evaluation by the consultant and future HC. Light 'em up Morency.

Interestingly, from the same article...

Quote:
Houston connection
San Francisco assistant head coach Mike Singletary grew up in Houston and starred at Baylor before being drafted by Chicago in 1981. Asked Wednesday about his childhood memories of Houston, Singletary said, "Family. Family's one thing that was always important.

"I had a lot of wonderful experiences in Houston. And Houston is a football town. A lot of great talent has come through there, whether it's on the pee wee or professional level, whatever."
Hmm... future DC? Sorry, didn't want to hijack the thread.

So do you guys believe Wells will catch on somewhere else or we will trade Morency if we end up with the #1 pick?

trading morency would be a mistake, trying wells at FB would be good, allowing him to backup any RB positon holder. I believe nobody what's to feel as if they are no essential to a program so it will all fall on who is coaching next year, not capers

Morency will be a good, cheap backup to DD and/or Bush. I see Wells possibly staying for one more season IF Bush does not land in H-town.

I think it all depends on if we draft Bush or not. If we do though I would like to keep Wells maybe use him as TE and fullback and reserve rb. I know it might sound crazy but I think Wells would be a great tight end. He can run, he can catch, and he can block. Given reps I know he would excel in that position. Morency I understand this is a business and he hasn't been utilized this season at all, I can sympathise with his decision. If Bush came here he would have Bush and Davis in front of him. Playing time would be scarce, I think the trade would be dissappointing if it were to happen, but on the other hand the team would get something in return. Like I've said this looks to be an interesting offseason.

I'm a big fan of Wells, but I am not sure he is big enough?

I also saw more success with our passing offense when Wells comes out of the backfield as receiver from the FB position.

I like Wells, I hope he stays, but I am glad Morency is getting a shot to prove what he can do.

I need him to justify what I considered to be a WASTE of a pick on him considering we need major o-line help and spent a 3rd on him instead of drafting any o-line till the 5th round and he hasn't played any significant role at all this year.

Just another stone to what was one of the worst drafts i've seen

I think all three of our RBs will stay. Moran Norris is a good blocking FB so I don't see Wells taking over as our main guy there, although he is a big back and more of a runner than Norris so we could put him back there in certain formations and situations to be a blocker and more of a running/receiving threat than Norris is out of the backfield. Morency is in the same mold as Davis, although I think he is a little faster straight line speed, and I think he can be just as effective as Davis once he learns to just run rather than dancing around so much, although he was getting better at that the last game or two. Either way we just used a 3rd round pick on him so I bet he stays, and hopefully the coaches next year will sub him in for Davis for 4-6 runs a game and give him some rest so he doesn't wear out his knees again. Tony Hollings on the other hand is likely on his way out, unless he shows us something really special this weekend in the event that Wells can't play and the RB duties are left to Morency and Hollings.

What good is a blocking FB if we rarely use him? I like Moran Norris and all, but he's not used in this scheme. Maybe in next years he can get on the field.

I heard on the radio tonight as I went home that Morency was sent home with "Flu like symptoms" today and the guy on the radio (Mark Vandameer?) was saying that Hollings might get the start. It was idle speculation but I'm not planning on seeing Morency all day Sunday (though I'd like to).

Neither will happen...it will be the first signs of Hollings getting the boot on the way out of the door to the stadium. So we would have Bush, Davis, Wells and Morency vs our current back situation of Davis, wells, morency and hollings.

I could see us getting rid of Hollings, moving Wells to FB, and then having the depth chart as Bush/Davis, Morency

Wells isn't a full-time FB, and people have complained on these boards earlier in the year about his blocking skills, or lack thereof, so I doubt he becomes a FB as Moran Norris is pretty solid at the position when they use him. I can't imagine Hollings remaining here next year but who knows, the Texans have done more surprising things than that in the past. I won't comment on Bush being in our depth chart next year.

No, that's horrible news. I too would like to see Hollings but man... I REALLY want to see Morency for 4 quarters!
