    This is why all contracts should be performance based. How many full games has he played in so far this season? 0?

    Ahman Green may be out for the rest of his career.

    We should probably eat his cap hit this offseason, since we'll have the extra cap room. It wouldn't be that bad of a hit would it?

    After 2 full weeks off due to the bye-week, he can't play Sunday !
    What a waste of cap-money.
    Atleast the Texans didn't give anybody a Draft-pick for this guys "services".

    And there is no doubt that Dayne will start. I just hope that he can come out and have the same success that he had last game. I am just worried that he will not and yet Itchy will be sitting on the sidelines twiddling his thumbs.

    no joke. i say we just cut our losses now, that way he doesn't fool us into thinking he'll be healthy next year by telling us "this is the healthiest i've felt in years" or the same ol' schpeil that injury prone players late in their careers give =/ time to look to the future with the RB situation, I say start Echemandu, it's obvious Dayne's not the answer, so I say we go ahead and see what he can do. That way we know what round we gotta pick a RB. I'd like to think too, that he could gain some confidence playing against the Aint's "run d"

    I hope we see more of Echemandu this Sunday. This is getting very frustrating.

    FYI--he received a $5 mil signing bonus ($1.5 mil was paid this year as a roster bonus) so the dead money from cutting him would be $3.75 mil balanced against a base salary next year of $3.8 mil and roster bonuses of $700k so basically the team would save $750k in cap space next year by cutting him.

    I understand the frustration, but it's not his fault. I mean what is the guy suppose to do besides try his best to get ready to play. I suppose he could just say he is injured and tell people he is going to be out for X amount of weeks so there is no suprise. It looks to me like he is just fighting each week to play and sometimes he just can't heal enough in between games. Can't really blame him.

    Cant say im not suprised...

    I think we definately pick an OL 1st round (preferably a LT but if an absolute stud at C is there then go for it if he grades out higher) but if we cant get a good YOUNG DURABLE free agent RB like a Michael Turner then i'd like to see us take a RB in the 3rd.

    So... does this mean they will finally sign D. Walker from the practice squad?

    I say do it then.

    I think his only going to get worse, never better. Reminds me of DD/W.

    Cut him to save less than $1 million? I don't understand this thinking...look at the depth of our RB position.

    He cannot help the depth at RB if he cannot get on the field.

    Besides rapping, what is James Allen doing nowadays?!? Heck, other than a couple of DDW's seasons, Allen was productive as anyone else that has started hear and stayed healthy for ALL 16 games!

    But if he does he helps significantly. Your talking about next year after some time to rehab. Even if he only played 5 games next year, you don't think that's worth $1 million? What are you going to do with that $1 million? It's not like we don't have money to spend already.

    So you would rather not cut him, and pay him even though he never plays? I think we should cut him as soon as we can and go hard after Michael Turner

    Why wouldn't we be able to go after him without cutting Green? We have plenty of money to give him to come here...I don't understand.

    IMO it is this kind of thinking that leaves us with weak positions like our RB situation is now. Why not keep Green and sign someone else...then we can have several running backs, and not just one.
