    Just heard on ESPN Monday Night Countdown that Morency will start in place of Ahman Green (hamstring). Hopefully we didn't trade away a good back.

    I hope he does well, too. I've always like Morency, so there's no reason to stop rooting for him now.

    That's definitely a motivator to watch tonights game.
    I to hope Morency has a good game tonight. I suspect Mr. Favre will say something to him if he doesn't pick up a blitz, one of the reasons, reportedly, the Texans traded him.
    Good luck Vernand !

    Uh-oh. As a Texan I want him to not do well. With all of the confidence talk today, this could kill us if he plays well as the featured back. The Texans personnel team is most likely biting their nails.

    I just heard it as well. I hope he has a great game. I guess I'll find out if the hissy fit I threw after we traded Vernand was worth the energy or not...

    I was a fan of Vernand myself, and I still think he's better than whoever else
    we've got on our roster. Don't think we've got anybody with his quickness,
    which is sure an element we are missing in out backfield. I hope I'm wrong.
    But this is a game he can tell his grand kids about some day. He's starting in
    his first NFL game on MNF with one of the greatest of our time in the backfield
    with him.

    I just hope he does well tonight. I like the guy and still wish he was here. He impressed me during the preseason and I wanted to see him on the field during the regular season, I think he got all of 3 carries in the regular season before being traded. I was shocked when I heard about the trade.

    Might've had his 1st TD as a Packer if Favre hadn't thrown it out the back of the endzone w/o even looking at him. So far, he looks like a solid outlet receiver for GB.

    mcnabb can't hand the ball off. It wasn't even close to being a clean handoff

    looks like this was a big mistake keeping lundy over him... he has so much potential.

    And Houston is seeing why they made a mistake of letting Morency go. Forget that one step and hit the hole. Who said he couldn't do it? Picked up right where he left off in the preseason. Still running hard, hitting the hole fast when it is there and punishing the linebackers when he gets there. Ok, a fumble, but besides that, he rebounded pretty nice!

    Besides the fumble he has looked pretty good IMO. I'm getting upset about the trade all over again...
