    I wondered how he even made the team....now it's official - the Morency trade was an awful one.

    I guess Darius Walker isn't thought of that highly

    Morency has been injured all camp and early in the season...it's not like he was healthy.

    I wouldn't say it was awful. It was definetely not a beneficial trade to say the least. Morency has been hurt quite often for the Pack and they are the only team that has a worse yds/game rushing than we do.

    IMO, the trade didn't hurt or help us. Having said that, I'm freaking willing to try anything at this point.:gun:

    It's not like he palyed well when he was healty.

    I'm interested in what Echemandu can do, hope he actually gets some time.

    This is good for us. Gado rarely saw the field, and when he did, he was just like Ron Dayne Jr.

    This shows what they think of Walker and Zabransky.....not very much. Walker got beat out by a guy who came in the middle of the season. ouch.

    Kubes said on radio yesterday that Echemandou had a leg up as he has been on field more as a veteran. When we make a mistake (Gado) we fix it even if it takes forever. I like this move.

    I don't know what you are looking at because when I watch both backs it looks like one has a place in the league somewhere and one looks like a budding doctor who is looking to finish medical school.

    I saw two guys.

    That's about it. I didn't think either was anywhere near being the answer at RB.

    I heard what he said too. It sounded like Kubiak like Echo a little more because he knew that he could contribute to Special Teams. He added that he thought Walker could as well, but Echo had experience on STs.:cool:

    Man, Morency looked good to me...

    I'm not sure what some of you were watching...

    When they made the trade I was dumfounded...

    You don't have to be "the answer" to be a productive NFL player....something Gado didn't look remotely close to being.

    Shermans other pal center Flanagan should be right behind him, but of course that's just wishful thinking on my part.
