Vonta has been here since the beginning of the Kubiak era and has started all 16 games for the past four seasons. Here is the breakdown for total team rushing yards for since the Texans began play in 2002: 2002: 1,347 2003: 1,651 2004: 1,882 2005: 1,816 2006: 1,687 2007: 1,586 2008: 1,846 2009: 1,475 2010: 2,042 If you average the 4 Capers years, the average team rushing yards was 1,674. Now if you just average the first 4 years Leach has been here(2006-2009) the average was 1649. 25 yards lower than the Capers era. You guys obviously know that in 2010, it was the largest rushing total for the team ever when Arian Foster started. So it brings me to my point, is Leach honestly the key to Foster's success? or are there other reasons why he had the season he did (ie; Fosters actual talent and drive to succeed, the addition of Wade Smith, O-line Chemistry, Chris Meyers' improvement, etc.) If Leach is gone because of the money, I honestly would be okay with that. The team found Leach from the scrapheap, i'm sure they can find a competent replacement to him. In conclusion, if Leach comes back, great. If not, i'm not going to be crying over him and proclaiming our rushing game is over.
