Default Opinions on Dayne....

In my opinion, he is your best option at running back. The man is a beast when healthy. Lundy is a good compliment, but Dayne should definitely be your number one back.

I agree Vinny. Who do you think we should target as a starter for our team?

Dayne lacks the passion to be a starting back, and it visible most of the time. He is good at times, but has never lived up to his hype. There is no reason he shouldn't be a Jerome Bettis back. Has more speed than Bettis had. Great feet like Bettis, and cuts like him too. The biggest difference is desire.

Michael Turner. Although I bet the Giants are thinking he will take over the seed role for Tiki once he is gone.

I don't think desire is the problem. Desire got him moved from third string running back at the end of last season with the Broncos to a starter going into training camp this year. Turf Toe or should I say foot got him knocked out of training camp and eventually off the team. When he came to Texas he was still battling turf toe but was rushed in the line up. I am not making excuses for him but you can see the difference when he is healthy.

I dont think they consider him an every down back. Probably want somebody more multi-dimensional to go along with him.

Dayne wasn't a total bust in New York either. He did fail in taking the starting role from Tikki, but he did manage to become one of the leading rookie running backs (yardage) in Giants history. Demanding to be traded and skipping training camp is what got him deactivated from their roster.

I think we should keep Dayne on. He looks good. We should still hit the draft for a starting caliber back...but like someone said earlier, he should be our Jerome Bettis. We just need to find a Willie Parker.

Lunday, given time, may be that back. He needs to learn to run smarter.

ron Dayne is a starting rb, he should be and will be. A healthy Ron Dayne is a beast. The guy plays with a chip on his shoulder. He's the type of back that needs 25-30 carries a game, not 5 carries every 3-4 series. What rb is not statring material needing 25-30 carries a game. If he never got hurt in the begining of the season, he would still be in Denver as the starting rb. As a matter of fact there is a big chance he will be back in denver next year.

I have been pleasantly surprised out of what we have gotten from him, the last two weeks. But how long will that last?? Buffets all around Houston are starting to close down, so he may want out....

I just like the fact that he whammed Daniels in the endzone against the Titans. He were going forward alright, that's heart in my book.

it's so funny how people joke about dayne's weight, when not once in his entire career he has been fined or showed up to camp overweight, or out of shape.
