And the same (that nobody bothered to pick him up) can be said about Walker, so what's your point?

There's a reason Walker went undrafted and got cut by us. LOL, we'll agree to disagree.

Lundy has already proved he is not an NFL back
Walker has potential, we have no idea what we are getting.

I agree about Lundy, I think even less of Walker, but that's just my opinion.

Yes, because undrafted free agents never pan out.

Please don't tell me you are expecting Walker to come in and be the next Priest Holmes are you? Holmes' situation coming into the draft was fairly different then Walker's. Holmes as a FB his last years at UT, Walker was the featured back; being the biggest difference.

No, I'm not saying that he is going to be Priest Holmes. I am saying that where you are drafted (or not drafted) is irrelevant. There have been too many cases to name where late draft picks have out performed high draft picks.

Wasn't Chris Taylor undrafted too?

True, but I think Walker has more potential than Lundy ever had.

Eh..either way, other than a healthy Green our RB corps is less than desirable.

Chris Taylor was never cut by the team during training camp.

Walker's college play + the fact we cut him from our roster once already tells me he's nothing much on the field.

Yes, we cut him and when he came back was much improved. He admits that he was down on himself for going undrafted and Kubiak has said that he was much improved when we re-signed him.

I don't see anything wrong with his college play. He didn't put up crazy numbers, but he also was in a pass heavy offense. He was also probably the only ND player who actually played a good game in the Sugar Bowl last year against LSU's defense.

Now, is he going to turn out to be a perennial pro bowler or even a one time pro bowler? Probably not, but we won't know until he gets a shot and he surely can't be any worse than Gado.

Texans | Green expected to play Week 4
Mon, 24 Sep 2007 18:06:05 -0700

Megan Manfull, of the Houston Chronicle, reports Houston Texans RB Ahman Green (knee) is expected to play Week 4.

Texans | Dayne will likely play Week 4
Mon, 24 Sep 2007 18:05:46 -0700

Megan Manfull, of the Housotn Chronicle, reports Houston Texans RB Ron Dayne (ribs) should practice this week and will likely play Week 4.

__________________________________________________ _______________

I'd rather see Green and Dayne back on the field in week 4 than Lundy or Walker.

I seam to remember Darius Walker being named on Ourlads annual "laddie awards" as the most underappreciated RB in the 07 draft class- then he went undrafted, signed by the Texans, cut, then re-signed to the practice squad

They must be wrong about him because he was undrafted. He can't be any good. Draft position determines the quality of player. Look at Reggie Bush for evidence.

Default Re: Running Game?

The Texans running game hasnt looked all thet impressive no matter who is toting the rock . Green has been the most effective when healthy putting up an avg of 4.3 .
The only other back to avg 3.0 or better is Jameel Cook who has 5 carries for 15 yards . Ron Dayne who played well Vs. the Chiefs has a dismal avg of 2.5 . Samkon Gado is even worse at 2.0 . Those numbers are erily similar to seasons past . The team avg. is 3.2 per carry which is 28th in the NFL . (Here's a SHOCKER .... San Diego is 32nd @ 2.4 while Cleveland and Pittsburgh are tied at the top @ 5.5)
Greens avg of 4.3 is acceptable .... but to me is deceptive . There are too many plays that are for negative yards or little to no gain .

Sometimes I want to blame the O-line for not creating lanes . Others Its the back .... Others still I think its the system . Fact is even with Green this team dosnt have a good running attack they have just enough to get by and nothing more .

I think it's the offensive line, it looks like there are never any holes to run through. I think it will take a couple offseasons to retool our offensive line into one that can run-block as well as pass-block.
