Default Whats wrong with Ron Dayne?

Why didnt we bring him in? He would be a great power back to move the line and backup Slaton

A) He's not played ball in a year. I don't even think he went to camp anywhere.

B) He's not a power back.

I'd much, much rather see Worf, er... I mean DW backing up Slaton than a "one year removed from football" Dayne Train.

You know, Dayne might be the next great candidate for "Dancing with the Stars." Hell, he auditioned in our backfield for two seasons.

1. We dont need another rookie LT's career destroyed
2. He's fat
3. He's slow
4. He's not a short yardage back
5. Why do you think no other team has signed him?

Dayne was alright for the time, but we need to move on; and, no, he's not a power back until he gets into the backfield, which isn't often enough.

Default Re: Whats wrong with Ron Dayne?

I liked Dayne and yet I have to agree that "train has passed". If the Texans wanted him they would have signed him (or tried to) after last season. They didn't and chose to go with Ahman Green instead. Ahman "contributed" I'll admit but he didn't do anything that Ron Dayne couldn't have done.

It's time to move on. Even Darius Walker is nothing more than a temporary rental until the end of the year. He's not going to be here next year either. Brown, Green, Walker, and Taylor will all be former Texans by next season. I think that if Moats is effective the rest of the way out (and I imagine he will be) then we go into next season with Slaton, Moats, a rookie from the first day of the draft (but probably not a 1st rounder), and whatever reasonably affordable free agent RB that Rick Smith can get in here. Plus a couple of guys who will be camp fodder as usual.

Default Re: Whats wrong with Ron Dayne?

The guys on 790 this a.m. said Ahman received $70,000+ per carry and the guys on 610 said he made $20,000 per yard. Why doesn't anybody ever call out the Texans for bringing this guy in? Ahman is a great guy and all that but he was damaged goods. He was on my fantasy team the year before we brought him in for $27 million as the missing piece that would get us there. He was never healthy the year before we flushed the dough down the toilet for him. I'm just a regular guy sitting in front of my tv drinking a beer and I knew it was a stupid move. We need some changes.

What message board, radio stations, and newspaper are you getting Texans information and opinions? that move was questuion heavily from day one and has gone past anger to a running joke.

I remember 32 carries for 153 yards in our only win against Indianapolis. That seems to always slip off everyone's radar.

All he ever did was average 4 yards a carry in the two years he played here while our offensive line went through multiple starters while learning Mike Sherman's power blocking scheme and Kubiak/Shanahan's best imitation of Denver's zone at the same time.

But hey, no big deal. We totally upgraded the position by bringing Ahman Green in and depending on him for two seasons while paying him 11 million dollars.

The reason nobody remembers that is because he never replicated that performance again. Ever.

And I don't think that anybody on this board were talking about how great Green would be now that Dayne was gone. But the fact of the matter is, Ron Dayne is not a great, or even good running back. So while it might upset you that we did bring Ahman Green back, I think the possibility of Green actually playing decently for an entire season was much better than Ron Dayne having multiple 100 yard games in a season.

You forgot he was pretty much an a-hole to the fans.

In a word....NO.

Thanks for thinking of him though. I am sure he appreciates it.

I would vote for him to be the next "Most Likely To Sell A Heisman" if such a poll popped up.

I think you're wrong there. I think that a great many of us knew with sickening certainty that Ahman Green had no chance of actually playing for an entire season, decently or otherwise. At this stage in their respective careers I'd prefer Dayne over Green. That's just me though and it's not like the Texans care what I think (plus it's all over anyway, they're both done here).

I don't know about the rest of you but I'm dying to know what over the hill broken down back they dig up next.

Default Re: Whats wrong with Ron Dayne?

Uh, it's Thanksgiving week. Do you think there's ANY amount of money ANY team could offer Ron Dayne that would pull him away from the table and put him on a field this week? He probably kept himself in decent shape all year with the idea that "once Thanksgiving comes, I will accept myself as retired. Now, pass the gravy."

Blunts, Ho-Ho's, Doritos and a PS2 will do that to a guy.

Dayne was just plain awful, save for the Indy game. If he were to be signed by this team, I would feel obligated to call every Houston radio show, every day, and call for the entire front office's and Kubiak's head.
