Default ESPN Radio: Ron Dayne most likely starter against Skins

Per ESPN Radio, they heard reports out of Houston say that Ron Dayne is emerging to be the starter against the Skins. With him and Gado, Lundy can sit on the bench and just observe.

Just wanted to pass it along to my fellow Texans.

Crap, when we picked up Dayne I thought he was going to be our back up's back up. Is anyone else really missing DD right now?

I'm missing him. But, I do think Dayne is better than Lundy. He didn't get to play much against the Colts, but when he was in there I was more impressed with him than I was with Lundy. I think Gado will eventually be our starter, but becuase he's still relatively new he still has to get used to the system.

Yeah, sure I'm missing DD. But Dayne knows the system. And this isn't anything that we should be shocked about.

-Dayne knows the system
-Gado is going to get more carries, and eventually emerge as the starter
-Lundy is going to drop down the depth chart

Its all about a business. And whatever works is fine with me, as long as we start to win. Heck, they could sign Burger King man for a ridiculous contract, as long as we start winning I don't care.

Dayne just looks so bad out of shape and he cant carry the ball for a long run or drive.

We need him to shore up our defensive backfield.

He looks out of shape but he isn't. If he were out of shape, I don't think he would get many touches. He's not a breakaway back for sure, but I think he can run for some long gains.

Whats he at right now, 240 something? Thats pretty low for his weight. He just needs to see more carries, and i think he will really work well as a starter or 2nd stringer.

I love AP.

I have no qualms with Dayne starting based on his limited touches last week. With Spencer out, Flanagan banged up and Wand not with us I would rather see less Lundy and more Dayne and Gado.

Dayne and Gado ran with authority. I cannot say the same for Lundy. I hope he is moved to 3rd string by the time we come back from the bye week.

Get used to it...it is our legacy to hand down to future Texans fans now. I think Gado will be the starter before too long.

Oh I know, it will only stop if Bush turns out to be like Eric Metcalf (sp). I just think it is getting funny that no matter what the article deals with, Bush has to be mentioned. (you know that laugh you do when there is nothing else you can do but laugh).

Speaking of bad drafts...I was listening to John and lance yesterday and John said that Casserly said that Merriman wasn't on our draft board because they didn't think he could play the 3-4 OLB. He was gone...but we probably would have passed on him too.

LOL!

I'm missing him a whole lot. Seriously guys, when has our running game been not good ever since we discovered DD? Not until now. And it's really surprising how bad it has been the past 2 games. First cause we've always been a decent running team and second because of the great preseason we had. We can say the same thing about our defense too.

I guess that's why everyone says preseason doesn't mean jack. On top of that, the teams we played in preseason aren't doing too good right now either. Even the Broncos, who we lost to, have started kind of sluggish. So take in account preseason games against poor to average teams=Texans looking good or average.

edit; this was not a bash on phan1 by any means.
