    Why? They got Green. For most on this board, that's RB enough for this team.

    Yeah but i'd prefer an experienced starter like Dayne over Taylor and Lundy...unless we're keeping Gado and Leach as someone in Goal line situations. I think the last few games revived Dayne's Career and i hope he deceides to continue it here.

    I don't want to lose Dayne. Kick Lundy or Gado to the curb.

    I think Dayne did pretty much what we asked of him last year. He gave me a lot more than I expected and seemed like a team player. I think with Green being the feature back...Dayne wouldn't have quite so many carries and could really be effective in the red zone. Dayne was our best back last season.

    I'd hate to lose Dayne, but oh well....that's just the nature of the business sport.

    I think that Gado's looked pretty good when the run blocking solidified. I remember one of his blocks actually flipped a guy over. Seems like he also ran as effectively as Dayne did when he got a chance.

    Let him go break some Philly O-Lineman's leg. I'll take Green and a drafted RB.

    Heavier is not always better at the goal line--it is about nose for the end zone. See LT as exhibit A.

    Ahman Green has done very well in short yardage situations:

    2nd and less than 3--career avg. 3.9 ypc
    3rd and less than 3--4.5 ypc
    4th and less than 3--5.7 ypc

    I don't think losing Dayne is all that bad. I liked him and wish we could keep him, but at the same time, it on;y opens a door for some of our Younger guys.

    I know we haven't seen much of Chris Taylor, but I think he can be a starting back in this leauge.

    I hate to see someone that has performed well slip away. Depth chart should be:

    Green
    Dayne
    Taylor
    Lundy

    Gado didn't do anything last year in comparison.

    I agree with the both of your statements. I think Dayne was more or less a cork to plug the boat until dry land was in sight.

    I was impressed with the way Taylor hit the hole. Instead of running over whoever was in the path, he appeared to let the blocks form in order to hit the gap. As far as Lundy and Gado go, eh depth and special teams if they're even kept.:)

    Sherman coached Green. Sherman coached Gado. Gado is staying.

    I bet Dayne wants to see what the market is like for him right now. Hope he finds his way back to the Texans to back up Green.

    We've got one very experienced starter in Green, and we also need to develope one or two of the younger backs from the group of Taylor, Gado, & Lundy for the future.
