I would say sit the starters, but half the starters are injured...

I'm fairly confident with Dayne, Walker, and Taylor. I think they can get it done.

No, he's got too much money, and too many previous outstanding performances from earlier in his career to get completely jettisoned after 1 year.

He will fight for his spot on the roster I imagine though. I think that his real danger is he might become 2nd string or be below somebody on the depth chart.

Ron Dayne sweet.

I think we are going to bring in a young running back to be the starter (draft or FA), Dayne will be the backup, and Walker and Taylor will fight for the last spot.

I agree with this. If this carries to next year, I see no reason to get a new RB. Build that secondary and o-line. We need those more than we need a RB.

Hello NON-WINNERS.

I guess you're all pretty proud that your sorry ass team can beat our backups.

Go hang your hat on that and your 8 and 8 record while they watch the playoffs on TV like you.

Our RB situation is serviceable for an 8-8 team. With a good O line they'll be somewhat better. In the long run, we need a good RB. But the O line and the defensive backs need to come first.

Dayne will not last forever (unfortunately), but I've seen enough from Walker and Taylor to give them a chance to carry the load next year as we build our very weak spots. Hell, if Walker keeps playing the way he is...he could be that good RB of our future. He's got some pretty strong skills.

if taylor comes back healthy after only playing one year and walker after the same, we could do some damage if we improve the line. wouldn't that fit into kubiak's philosphy of system running backs?

I think if Walker can really get some consistency with his runs, and maybe put on another 15 - 20 pounds he can be a star.

EDIT: This is me eating crow for basically saying Walker is nothing more than a 3rd down back. He's looking pretty good today.
