I think the running stats for the Texans this year will be very spread out.

And don't forget his plantar fasciitis, which many times is a chronic unrelenting and debilitating problem which has done in many a fine player. That's the injury that, unknownst to most, took Oiler CB Steve Brown from top of the radar to a "burned" specialist in his last 2 years. Brown was dogged unmercifully by the fans for declining performance problem he just had no control over.


I would not put that much faith in a 2 week local talk show presentation that has not hit the mainstream media. And by the time, if that time ever comes, that Bennet is traded, things could change 10 times over.

eh.. I dont think our staff is worried about going into the season without a "set" running back. I cant remember how many times the Broncos have started the season with no one and had a budding star by the end of the year.

Yeah, I feel the same way. We will be ok with our RBs. And why can't Antwain Smith do it for us in the meantime? He stepped in pretty well for the Saints last year when McAllister went down. He is only 32, and keeps himself in excellent shape. And what the heck IS plantar fasciitis?

Plantar Fascitis is like an ice-pick in your foot. It starts off as wear on the connective tissue in the arch and frequently ends up with bone spurs in the ankle area.

[EDIT: I originally said "muscles" instead of "connective tissue" which is worng.]

A. Smith got in the doghouse in NE because he kept failing the conditioning tests and reported to camp fat every year.

I thin N.O. is going to bite the bullet this year and keep him and then trade him next year.

I saw a replay of the USC - Alabama game from 05 last night. I am sure that you can all guess what I was thinking watching the Saints new weapon just obliterate the razorbacks.
Almost made me regret getting Mario, who I am excited about.
Wow- he (RB) was a stud

I know one thing is for sure...we are not the Broncos!!! We need a set running back at the start of the season. IMO we should have drafted a back when we had the chance. Did not have to be Bush either. Now, the team is depending on someone that is on the downside of his career, trying to trade for a player that has a history of injuries, and who's #1 running back is not completely 100%. I know we did draft Lundy...so what!! We should have tried to get someone like a Deangelo Williams, Joseph Addai...etc. Someone who could come in and create something. Now we are gonna have to hear all kinds of excuses if the running game cant get going. Oh wait...Maybe we can hand the ball of to Mario Williams, he is a freak and if he is supposed to be better than Peppers, he should be able to run the ball. Considering that Peppers is lining up at wide reciever on some short yardage plays near the end zone...Just a thought.

We were making attempts to trade with the Bears so that we could get Deangelo Williams but Carolina picked that trade off of us and we got perhaps a better deal in LB Demeco Ryans.

Why are some hitting the panic switch in mid July? We will do just fine this year in the rushing dept, quote me on that! In the system that the Texans plan on running Olandis Gary rushed for 1000+ yards. I think we have very capable backs to do a stand up job, not great but respectable.

hopefully davis is just playing it safe and making sure he completly recovers i think he will be ready for the start of the season. as for the other guys they will be able to handle the load backing him up. we will be fine. we are going to be going deep any way to a tight end or one of our two receiver threats.

[cough cough] that was Arkansas - not Bama. Otherwise you might have seen a much different game with USC going up against Bama's #1 overall Defense from last year.

Personally I'm looking forward to Mario, D-Wreck and the Texans D hopefully taking Mr. Bush down a few notches this year.

[EDIT: I originally said "muscles" instead of "connective tissue" which is worng.]
Sorta close.......The heel bone spur is seen under the heel bone and seems to be seen more commonly in patients who have plantar fasciitis, but is not caused by the fasciitis. About 70% of patients who have plantar fasciitis are seen on x-ray to have a heel spur.
However, heel spurs are also seen in patients without plantar fasciitis; about 50% of middle aged adults have at least a small heel spur seen on the x-ray of their foot. Furthermore, the heel spur is actually located in a place different from the fibrous tissue that is inflamed in plantar fasciitis. The heel spur is not located at the insertion of the plantar fascia, as was once thought. The spur is not caused by the fasciitis and usually has very little clinical implications..................but the plantar fasciitis is a severe inflammation of the gristle covering of the bottom of the foot, many times caused by micro or gross tearing of that structure........and your description of the "ice pick in the foot" is one of the best descriptions I've ever read! Whether treated with orthotics, steroid injections (talk about painful in that particular area) or, as last resort, surgery, the problem very commonly progresses to debilitation, especially in a football player where pressure and stretching trauma and thus reinjury cannot usually be avoided..........and that's why I'm concerned about Morency.

Have you heard anything that would lead you to believe that Morency had this condition prior to being drafted by the Texans? Is plantar fasciitis caused by a single event? Or is it the result of long-term wear? Maybe footwear related?

You are right. Sorry about that.
Still, pretty impresive. But, I will say that indeed he did not get touched until he got about 5-10 yards past LOS.
