I'd like to see Gado start too. Maybe split the carries 70/30 - he's not had a chance to get into a rhythm this year and I'd like to see if he can break the kind of runs he was hitting last season.

I'd like to see Gado play the whole game and let him wear down the defense. Seems to doa decet job in all facets of the game... Decent mix of power/speed and can pick up the blitz in the rare times he has been in, it appears that way anyways.

Let him run hard... 80-20 is my preferred split... 24 carries Gado, 6 carries/3 receptions for Lundy.

Their D-line is beat up so almost every run play is gonna net positive yds.

But Spikes & Fletcher dont let too many RBs get past them.

I expect a lot of 4 yds runs but nothing longer than 10. And I'm fine with that.

I would be happy with a 60/40 Gado/Lundy mix. The power of Gado and the change of speed of Lundy would work better for the Texans especially with the line being beaten up like it is (our line).

I'm pleased with it too. This combo of running backs is not a long term answer for the Texans, but it is what we have now and I have seen it working to our advantage.

My thoughts exactly. Majority of running should be in Lundy's hands for speed.

Im hoping Gado gets the tough yards so he can wear down the Bills linebackers so we can start running sweeps with Lundy and hitting OD over the middle later in the game.

I think the coaching staff is starting to get a good feel for each of their strengths. I don't think that they'll go to a running back by committe as a game plan for a single game but I don't see a reason why they shouldn't start who's stronger against a certain defense or start somebody based on what they've shown in practice that week. It seems that when one is down the other is more than happy to step up anyway. I would have to label that as a testament to good coaching. I don't think either back has a leg up on the other.

I thought Kubiak said Lundy will be rested a little so I think Godo will do the most of running this coming sunday. For the rest of season, Gado and Lundy are more likely to share and % will be decided whichever runs better on game day IMO.

Go Texans!!
