Looks like Carr is getting more and more recognition in the media.

Unless we can somehow bring in a better back through a trade or free agency, I don't see our running game improving this season.

Lundy is inactive and should know the playbook by now anyway, he has been here as long as the rest of the guys on offense under Kubiak's new system, Carr, AJ, etc. had to learn the new system as well. And Gado has to at least know the blocking system, it's the same one Sherman used in Green Bay. And Dayne played under Kubiak in Denver so he should be somewhat familiar with our system.

Just because you liked Morency better doesn't mean logic wouldn't say the running game shouldn't improve as the OL gets together, the RB's get used to the OL and the opposition softens. Not saying anything about Morency but don't crawl out on a limb with a saw--they have no where to go but up (caveat--except for one opinion).

He's still a rookie.

Dayne and Gado should at least be familiar with the system we are running with Kubiak and Sherman since Dayne played under Kubiak and Gado under Sherman. I just don't think the failure of the running game can be blamed 100% on the offensive line, especially since I have seen Gado and Dayne miss holes and make other mistakes. This really has nothing to do with me being upset about trading Morency, I will take any back who can step up and get the job done and these two haven't done it. As far as the opposition softening, Indy has one of the worst run defenses in the NFL, allowing 155 rushing yards per game on average, Dayne, Gado, and Lundy combined for 98 yards against Indy's defense.

Lundy can no the playbook backwards and forwards but it would be nice if he would actually show flashes of potential. I think his longest run was for about 10 yards and that was during garbage time just to run out the clock to go into halftime. I think that was our first game of the season.

I like Dayne and Gado, but they're bruisers. We need a RB with finesse. More of a Willie Parker type.

That is exactly what I'm saying. He hasn't shown flashes of anything from what I have seen...

Holy cow. A David Carr thread has turned into a thread about how our running game needs to improve.

Wow, what a difference a year makes.

Our running game will start to develop more consistency once the passing game gets to where it's heading. When defenses have to concentrate more on our receivers and TE's, that'll open up your 5-7 yard gains in the running attack.

Look out...

That miraculous turnaround is just around the corner!

How bout doing yourself a favor and sticking a "YET" at the end of that statement.

This coaching staff hasn't done too bad of a job improving the passing game up to this point. Why is it that you're so sure that they can't improve the running game as well?

I don't care if it is a vet or an undrafted rookie free agent, as long as they can get the job done. I am not saying the problem is the coaches or the system, the problem is Dayne and Gado.

And again, why is it that you believe that neither Dayne nor Gado will get better in the future? Afterall, it's not like as if they've been here since Day 1 of training camp. Why is it that you're so sure they won't improve their production if you don't have an issue with the coaches or the system?

You're giving up on it too early, IMO.

Sorry I don't buy the "they haven't been here long enough" excuse, especially when Gado played under Sherman and Dayne under Kubiak. Morency had the same amount of time in Green Bay as Gado has had here and Morency rushed for 99 yards Monday night.

So much for getting AD in the draft.

It is nice not knowing which pick you'll end up having though
