Ryan Leaf sucked. Ricky Williams is crazy. I know, but a lot goes into picking players in the draft. It's not a perfect science. Basing your decision on a couple of short NFL resumes is not a perfect science either.

You're saying Gado is great based on a partial season. He doesn't even have college experience really.

It's not like Morency has been bad or had a lot of opportunities.

The one thing that makes me favor this trade is b/c of Mike Sherman. The guy has been a respected head coach and I'm sure he must have some special insight on Gado since he was his coach last year. Either way, best of luck to Morency. Time to get a running game started.

I hope it works out, but let's face it, the Texans are still trying to get a starting back out of guys that would be backups on most every other team.

He has been knocked as a poor talent evaluator in the past by some of the Packer fans. Don't want to lower your mood...just relaying some thought on him.

Houston we have a new starter!

I love Samkon -- I think he is going to be a better fit than Lundy.

Say what you want about this guy he can run the football..............

Although I wanted to see Vernond get more plays, I like Samkon Gado, good stuff.

Only if we had a 1st rd pick last year we could have drafted a Running Back. JK

Gado only in his second year as well, 5 games 585yds..........Not bad for a rookie.

Is there any confirmation on whether or not he will be the starter? (I'm drafting today)

Yeah, it must be nice for you as a Tack fan. You know your team won't win this year, and if Vince plays it'll be a live practice situation with the Tacks down by four touchdowns.

Maybe Kubiak felt he owed Sherman one.

Sherman supposedly wanted to keep S Wand but Kubiak cut him anyway.



I haven't noticed whether anyone has signed Wand.

This kind of musical chairs with our RBs will just fuel the espn rant on us bypassing Bush, justified or not.

This is a good blurb from NFL.com

Can you imagine being in the middle of an interview and then told you are being traded?

You're right Tulip, but maybe we just need to accept the fact that its gonna
be nasty up at Indy this week, no matter what. Actuall, we may very well be
more disappointed about the season a week from today than right now.
But rejoice ! The worst part of the season is the first half, and the last half ain't easy, but its not as challenging as this end. And the team should be more comfortable with the new offense "and" the new defense by midseason.
For awhile though, it just ain't gonna be pretty.

People don't seem to understand it wasn't just Reggie Bush they passed on - it was his flashy east/west style they passed on. Kubiak's system is all about north/south runners. This scheme tends to work for teams like Pittsburgh and Denver (last year's AFC Championship contenders!!!). I'm still glad we by passed Bush (who has yet to tear up the league from day 1 the way all the media folks predicted).
What we are learning from the teams moves the last couple of weeks is that when you inherit a 2-14 team there's a lot of work to be done. I'm just glad the new regime is doing the work. It might not pay off the first two weeks of the season, but I am confident it will starting in weeks 3 and 4.

This is an interesting move. I liked Morency, but I wasn't attached to him. He seemed like he had some upside, but he never really proved himself to be the starter. And I don't have enough info on Gado to really form an opinion at this point.

But props to Kubiak & Co. for making bold moves. You don't pull a 2-14 team out of the gutter without some major policy shifts and player turnover.

I agree with Herv, though. This staff is still fitting peices together and is more concerned with getting it right than having to win the next game at all costs. I'm sure they want to win, and plan accordingly, but I don't think they are freaking out when we lose to a team like Philly or Indy.

In Kubiak we trust! Go Gado!!
