Is this because of Morency's performance against the Eagles because I don't think Gado or Tomlinson would have helped our running game last week.

I like this trade. Gado is a much more proven runner than Morency.

Agreed. Also am I the only one who thinks Morency was our best back this preseason? (not directed at you jdog)

I liked Morency and was miffed when Lundy got the starting nod. Gado is an upgrade and will give us a breakaway threat.

I think it was more of Morency's inability to adjust to the zone running style. I heard about it a few times this pre-season, about how he was dancing around instead of one cut and run.

I didn't know what to think when I raed the thread title...and I still don't. Time will tell, but I do like the fact that the team is not afraid to get rid of personnal they don't think will work.

Didn't Moeency have all of the off season and the preseason to prove that he could play for Kubes? Didn't he get bet out by a rook? Maybe we missed the signs?

Okay, if he ran well with a not so good line then I feel better about it. I thought he looked good last year. Madden liked him if you like Madden.

It seems like this is a knee jerk reaction to our poor running game last week. I don't think any running back would have helped last week with the blocking and play calling we had against that Eagles defense.

Gado steps in as the fastest running back in Texans History LOL! He also steps in as probably the most intelligent Houston Texan in our history. One thing is for sure, we have a guy that will have no problem memorizing the play book!

Sorry to quote myself but I wanted to add to this..

Morencey is our first string Kick return Guy and we are down to him and Edell Shepherd.

Not a rumor
Samkon Gado - RB - Houston Texans - Sep 13 2006 4:57PM est - Top Rotoworld.com News
News: Texans acquired Samkon Gado for Vernand Morency.
Impact: The Texans have confirmed the deal. Former Packers coach Mike Sherman coaches Houston's offensive line and surely was a factor in Gado's acquisition. It's great news for Gado, who should be picked up if available in all leagues. He should have a better chance to get carries and vie for a bigger role in Houston. A RBBC figures to ensure no matter what though.

I don't think thats what it was...I don't think they saw him as a full time back...I don't think they thought he was the type of back you could give the ball to 20+ times, and with a rookie, and aging veteran in dayne we needed that middle of the road guy that we feel like we can depend on...I heard he is coming off of an injury...not sure how severe of an injury it was, but obviously the coaches feel like he's fully healed and ready to go...
