I'm not sure which will make a better back but one thing for sure is that it won't matter who is carrying the ball if there is no hole to run through.
We didn't use Salaam at all and we have Winston inactive so the chances of fresh legs are slim. I'm willing to give anyone a chance but in Winston you have an aggressive stud who is still the more experienced and a better schooled tackle than Spencer. I guess he didn't bring the teacher an apple??!!

I think this guy played in a nationaly televised game last year. The name is
so unusual and I remember the fuss about him. He broke a real long run in that game ? The Pack was playing someone in their divison as I recall ?
Is this a statement that the Packers don't like Gado that much, or they really see something in Morency and are willing to part with value for a prospect ?
I thought Morency was very impressive in preseason, way superior to Lundy.

Wait, wait. Who gets Morency's number? Ordinarily I wouldn't care but #34 is kind of a big deal around here.

So they've turned the 2004 6th round pick into a 2005 undrafted free agent? Wow, that's awesome.

Kubiak needs to stop shopping and start coaching. The season has already started.

I think it's saying the Packers are willing to straight trade a ufa for a 3rd round rb.

I, as a Bear Fan, can second that!!! he is not only big, but fast also.

I'm glad someone found that video. I almost forgot about that run.

Lest anyone forget, that happened in a real game, where is counts, not a preseason game. And that's against the same run defense that held Shaun Alexander to almost nothing this past weekend.

This is a pretty good trade for you guys. You get another young running back who has proven what he can do in the league. He played well last year in the absence of Ahman Green and Davenport. He basically carried the whole rushing load for the Packers on a bad team. Once you get your run blocking scheme down he may challenge Wali Lundy for the starting spot if Lundy keeps running like he did on Sunday.

People on these boards seriously need to get over where these guys were drafted, because it's irrevelent. The only thing that matters is their talent and their potential. I'm personally very excited about this trade because I saw Gado play last year and he performed quite well, and I feel that he's proven more at this point.

" But Gado has struggled to adjust to the zone-blocking scheme being run by new Packers coach Mike McCarthy."
http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2586476
*******************************************
ESPNs take is that the Gado has struggled in the ZB in GB. Guess the ESPN guy doesn't realize we also run the ZB, or he would find some irony in his own remark. Management probably has him working full time on Reggie Bush propaganda, so doesn't have time to learn about other backs in the league.
Nigerian guy gonna like this climate, and Morency (I think from Texas), gonna
have to invest in some long johns.

I'll guess I'll stop freaking out. I don't think it hurts us personnel wise. It just seems like a big change for the team so early. It seems like a bad message. This will be my first leap of faith for Coach Kubiak.

Go Texans!

And if you want to look at stats, take a look at Gado's preseason stats...


27 carries for 65 yards for a 2.4 YPC average.

Last year GB's head coach was SF's Off Coord.

Pendry's offense outgained his by almost 500 yds.

thank you.

Gado has power and speed. Morency might be more polished but he's not got that second gear that you need in a one-cut system.
see the hole, BANG, there goes Gado... just watch that youtube link...

i think both teams did ok here. but the packers fans seem more upset to lose gado than we seem to lose morency, FWIW.

Gado produced in those games, against decent teams. If he didnt fumble, he would look better.

Morency, not being his fault, only against that one team, but I remember them being in the running for Bush so they werent all that good.

Morency could be a good back, but Gado has a better resume.

Morency does have that second gear. I don't get where some are getting Gado is faster than Morency.

Something I do not understand, why does the media feel they need to rip on the Texans with little stupid comments like adding the (ZONE BLOCKING COMMENT). O.K. (Gado struggles to pick up the Zone Blocking scheme) Now the media expects Texans fans to be stupid and freak out because they hear zone blocking scheme and Gado not picking it up well. HELLO!!!! "Sherman" Gado's coach last year, is our O-Line/assistant H.C. They used a zone blocking scheme in GB last year!!! Now everyone settle down. I am not a pro but I would probably guess that Gado will be fine with our style of zone blocking given his performance's last year in GB when sherman was maing the call's. Not everyone coaches the zone blocking the same.

Only because Morency has never been given a real shot by this team under two regimes.
