    Ron Dayne was the deciding factor in this game. He looked unstopable. And this is several games in a row he's ran well. I think he can be the man. But he has to be the main back. He has never been that good cause he's always been the 2nd or 3rd string back and sharing carries. I don't know, but we might have a decent back.

    No we ran into a weaken d-line. A d-line our novices could man handle. Nothing more. With out an o-line, Mr. Dayne becomes very ordinary very quickly.

    I agree with that. a win is a win, but Dayne is still not the answer IMO

    He had 86 yards against the Patriots last week. And that's with Carr doing nothing. Hey, i'm not saying he's the next Earl Campbell, But I think if given the chance to be the main back, he can produce.

    I disagree...

    Dayne has been running hard the last 4 weeks... you have to admit that.

    I'm with Dayne on this one. Our O-line blocked well for him some of the time and other times he took hits at the line and kept going forward. He can start. He just needs breathers. We can thank Dayne, V. Leach, and our front 7 on D for this win--in that order.

    And, yes, Dayne has been running hard for about a month now. Gotta give 'im credit.

    Yeah, let's don't forget about Leach. He has made a nice impact.

    Turns out that strip by Mario is probably the difference in the game. We really needed that extra possession.

    I think the Texans running game started kicking into high gear when Vonta Leach took over for Cook. He's been playing solid and doesn't turn the ball over in crunch time situations.

    Good point. The D needs to get some of this credit today too. Once again, if it weren't for a few bad plays by a safety or two, the D would have been stellar, considering the offense they went up against I mean. I still say we need a veteran FS and a stud CB.
