Default Gado should still start!

I know many of you will disagree with this statement but look at what it got us last week. I think Gado is just as much of a quality back as Lundy and Lundy just benefited from timely blocking and good play calling. Let me point out when else in the game did they run the same play that Lundy broke the long run on with Gado. They didn't. It was just a good call at that time and excellent blocking not taking anything away from Lundy by any means. I think confidence wise it just good to have two backs that can produce. If you start Lundy just because of one game and he goes out there and has the game he had at the beginning of the season then everyone says here we go again. Gado is a nice spark at the beginning of the game and then you hit them with Lundy who is a little quicker and shiftier type back. Gado pounds on them but doesn't just fall on the pile like Dayne. I'll go ahead and say what was said on the Packers forum by Jim Nayzium last year. The first time Gado gets in the open field you will see that his speed is legit

I think that the holes were there and the line did open them from time to time for both backs... not just lundy, the difference is that lundy had the vision to find the holes. i think that lundy has better instincts and vision. i hope to see him start........according to kubiak though..............."I don't get too caught up in the starter thing, but he's definitely going to play (more)," coach Gary Kubiak said. "He stepped up and played well.

thank u chronicle......anyway they will most likely split time. i hope they both do the same and gain yards. then we can open the deep ball once again. and then the brilliant bootleg that coach k likes.

I'd rather have Samkon come off the bench...But honestly it doesn't matter as long as Lundy gets most of the carries...i just don't want any more Dayne

Gado softens'em up and Lundy comes in to deliver the knock out blows. That could work...

Okay he his on a team, this is not the Samkon show, I am sure he is a fine back, and we have all seen what he can do we all watched on Monday Night last year or what ever year that was.

This is a team though and Samkon does not look like the kind of guy that cares if he gets the ball on every snap, if he is the man then I am sure Kubes will not keep him off the field.

We Won, thats all that matters and Samkon contributed as much as he could.

If Kubiak wants to start Wahli that's fine with me. But I kind of like the idea of Samkon going first and banging on the Titan's D for a little while, THEN bringing Lundy in fresh.........

Yeah, or version of thunder and lighting. It worked well in the Jags game. Gado came in and roughed up the Jags D by pounding through the middle, then Lundy came in and bursted to the outsides.

Uhhhh, why? 10 carries for 27 yards really softened them up? Please. When Lundy came in the game our offense had a new spark and really played well.

Lundy should be the featured back with Gado spelling him when necessary. We stick with that and we'll be fine.

This is the most preposterous logic and reasoning to date.

To imply or flat out say, that Lundy has better vision and that is why the holes were there, is rediculous.

Owens Daniels has EVERY SINGLE YARD that Lundy had in that game if they swapped places.

I predict that Lundy earned the start this week in practice. Kubiak gave him props today at the media, so I am sure it was practice. Any coach of the game that is as knowledgeable as Kubiak is can see what happened.

I can't believe you people. If Samkon catches that toss sweep and scores...he would have by the way...Then everyone here is bashing Lundy's vision for those first six carries for 5 yards.

The isolation play was even worse...worse in terms of easy for the running back.

I like Lundy. He seems like a good kid. I hope that Kubiak won't just use this fake little decent showing to believe he has found his man though. And even worse...we play the Titans now...so whomever was at running back will look good this week.

Let's see where this kid is in five weeks after 125 carries...

MY PREDICTION: I.R.

You say you like the kid.....and then predict he will be on I.R.........

Gado runs between tackles. Lundy can bounce out. They did a good job last week changing them out halfway through.

Just because I like Lundy doesn't mean I think he is a better RB...

What I am saying is basically that Lundy got lucky to be in the game during the ONE play that was blocked perfectly...

Had Gado been in the game then, then all the town would be Gado Crazy, and they would be talking about the "total package..." inside power...outside speed...

I do like Lundy. I am happy for him. I just think to declare him "the starter for a long time to come" based on that one half...is looodddaaaacris

And it will make Kubes look stupid in two weeks when Lee Suggs is starting or whomever...

He should have said, like all good politicians..."We think the world of this young kid, and we like Gado and Dayne. I think Wali definitelly earned the right to play more, and might even start...but this is the NFL and they all have a lot of football in their future, so we'll see how it all plays out..."

That way he can do what he pleases with the rotation and not be made the fool....
