Why didn't they do this trade earlier?

Did they both have to have badish games for it to be something that could happen?

Maybe they were not happy with the run game and are looking for a new spark. Hope it works, it will be needed against the Colts.

GB had fallen from the previous years playoff run to a dissapointing record that cost Sherman his job. But a lot of players were injured on that team. I hope that means the team could have been better w/o the injuries.

Sherman and Kubiak have inside info on GB and Denver so we should trust them two in the decisions to pick up or trade for players from those teams. If it doesnt pan out, they will join Capers and Casserly.

Gado is a very good RB who did just fine last year. In his last four games last year he averaged 5.0 yards per carry.

Suckers!

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.
I agree with your post, but I have a question to you or anyone else who can answer it.

People here frequently suggest that someone 'go back' and watch a certain game.
Is there a source of games that you can just go back and watch?
I am being a little sarcastic, but I actually hoping that you'll point me somewhere.

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.
It could be that Morency wanted a trade and got it. He was pounding that trade drum in the pre-season.

I like this move. It gives us a guy who has produced even if it was for 6 or so games last year. I wouldn't be surprised if Gado took Lundy's job sometime in the season. As for Morency, I've always liked him since his days in Oklahoma State and wish him the best.

Anybody else see a problem with Lundy starting, Dayne coming off an injury and hasn't played within the last month, and Gado not knowing the system?

Will Gado even be activated for this game?

That's my biggest problem with this. I don't see how playing musical players is really helping the team prepare for one of the toughest games of the year.

I thought Morency was our best back, and would like to have seen him start.

I still like this trade, though.

I'm starting to get the feeling that the team isn't preparing for one of the toughest games of the year. At least not in the way that we would expect them to prepare. I almost feel like we're still in a preseason mode and still finding parts for this thing, test fitting players, and exploring options to trade with other teams.

I sincerely believe we're looking at a team that will start looking dangerous around the mid-point of the season and anything they do early by way of wins will simply be gravy.

Next years draft is going to be really interesting.

But you're saying you would make the trade because of where they were drafted previously, which is completely irrevelent. They're just numbers.

You know who was also a third round pick? Maurice Clarett. Do you think that number holds any weight? Should it?

I've noticed that we have lined up in that inverted full house backfield just like the Packers did under Sherman and I think he had a big part of how this offense was designed. I'd bet Gado knows this offense well enough for a back to play reasonably soon. I'm still not exactly sure what Kubiak sees in Lundy unless he wanted to turn the backfield over completely and he thinks he can be a nice back up for a few years. He kind of reminds me of a poor mans Gary Brown.

I think Gado will be a great addition to our lineup. Sherman obviously knows what he can do. So at the very least in him we have a solid #2 back if not a #1. He isn't DD, but if the line can open those holes we could be looking great. I just hope he knows the system we could really use him in Indy.


I hope some Packers fans show up to back me up on this. I know A.Green is back for them so I doubt it effects them much.

I don't actually know anywhere to watch the game. I just remember watching the game. Atlanta was heavily favored, and Green Bay won largely because Gado carried them to victory. Over 100 yards and 2 TDs behind a bad o-line, and more importantly, he got the hard yards, short yardage and first downs and whatnot. Kept the drives alive.

He also had 171 yards against Detroit, and 111 yards against Philly. Remember Philly? That team whose run defense is supposedly so awesome that they were being used as the scapegoat for our bad rushing in week one. Just sayin'.

And he only got better as the season went on. Very impressive for an undrafted rookie who didn't have any reps with the first team until he was thrust into the game because of injuries. One of the feel-good stories of last year. So it's not just a good statistical pickup for us, maybe it's a good karma pickup too.

Maybe Kubiak sees Gado as a Mike Anderson type back.

Funny, NFL.COM says morency had 1 run over 20yds in 46 carries. Not only that, but it's his career long.

Gado had 3 over 20 yds in 143 carries. His career long is 63.

If Gado can produce the way he did on Monday night Football last year when Madden put him on the "Horse Trailer" then this is a great move.
