Dude you have no clue what you are talking about! Its o.k., but before you bash the guy, could you please tell me the last time Morency was NFL rookie of the month???????? In fact Gado was consistant 100 yrd a game back week in week out before his injury, and being the (third back) not #4!!! with HMMMMM Ahman Green, and Noah Harron is not that bad. You have no clue what you are talking about but hey, go ahead freedom of speech and everything. VENT YOU ANGER BUDDY!!!

His upside is much higher than Morency.

In his 8 games last year on a craptastic team he gained 171 yds on 29 carries, which is better than DD's best game.

He's from the Okoye mold. I'm happy we now have a back that will punish whoever tries to tackle him.

That's pretty much how I felt it reading this post the first time. I'm gonna miss the guy, I think he'll be a VERY successfull player in the future.

Morency had what 5 carries in our first regular season game??? Using that logic Lundy and Mario should be out the door with him.

One thing for sure, this coaching staff is not afraid to make changes to get the job done. Straight up trade if you ask me. Winner goes to the back with the most heart. Gado has shown some heart. I don't care who carries the ball, just move it down the field and put it in the endzone.

The coaches are getting rid of players that they dont like and are getting ones that they are familiar with. This is an important step in creating the propar chemistry on the team. Kubiak and Sherman know what winning teams are like and this is part of the process.

Okoye mold? Because he is from Nigeria or what? The guy also sprained his right knee after starting 5 games.

He is a news flash for you. Running back is a violent position and they get hurt --- a lot.

Gado is way faster and stronger than Morency! We came out smelling like a rose on this move.

By the way, Gado is 5'10'' 225 pounds and Okoye played at 6'1'' 260 pounds, so Gado is from the Davis mold not the Okoye mold.

Quit comparing where Gado and Morency were drafted. That doesn't matter anymore.

Is Joey Harrington better than Tom Brady, because Harrington was the #3 overall pick and Brady was a second day pick? Of course not.

Gado has proven more in the league than Morency has. Go back and watch his game last year against Atlanta, where he absolutely destroyed. If Gado can't run the ball in Houston, it will be entirely because of our o-line talent and our run-bocking scheme. Because he can run.

Yeah, he fumbled the ball, but he was a rookie. Lots of rookie RBs fumble.

I like this trade a LOT.

Gado doesn't run like Davis either. Gado has the second gear Dom doesn't have.
