    Give the slight edge to Morency right now because of his pass blocking.

    Morency was more impressive in his debut for Kubiak than Lundy was I think. Morency was also a better blocker. I would say Morency has a heads up on Lundy based on what I've seen, but I think the next game will tell us the most. The first teamers will play the most on both sides so I'm interested to see who does the best. My bet is on Morency, but Lundy can still take it I think.

    I'd like to see Morency take more reps with the 1st team next week before I get too excited.

    Morency because he's got a year of NFL experience under his belt, but I think they need to be rotated. Thankfully, I really dont care anymore if Davis comes back or not, we're looking great so far.

    After seeing Vernond running with that speed and shaking guys AND pass blocking...............I am glad I am not the GM.

    Morency Vs Lundy, that is like a date same night same time with 2 supermodels. I would rather we have this problem, then why our RB can't run or catch a pass like a lot of other NFL teams :bananasplit:

    Houston, again.
    IMO, I don't think Lundy is ready to be an NFL starter until he can pick up the blitz. If he could do that as well as Morency, then it's pretty much a toss up between them. That's not a bad thing. At this point, it looks like we may not have much of an issue at RB is DD isn't able to make it for bit.

    I like Morency way better in obvious pass situations. He can handle the blitz.

    Morency and Lundy should get the most carries while D.D. rehabs.

    mario, he drew the rams to 2 holding calls. So that was pretty good. that effects the game too along wit his batted block pass, stopping the run, and aiding peek wit a pair of sacks.

    i think he played like the 5th best player in the draft. last week he played like a 25th pick. he's making progress he will eventually get there.

    ooops wrong thread.
    I want to see Morency next week against Denvers first team. then we will have a clearer picture.

    Morency won me over in this game. I liked the physical way he played, i liked his speed, i liked how fast he hit the hole, and of course I liked his pass blocking.

    Morency = 15 Carries a game
    Lundy = 8-10 Carries a game

    yep, looks like DD may have lost his job if morency can be consistent for the next 2 weeks...

    Totally agree with this.

    I think he is a better runner, not much, but better.

    :(

    I keep hearing about his pass blocking. I guess I'll have to wait until Monday when NFLnet replays the game.

    Morency seemed to have done well, based on his numbers, but do remember he was playing against the 2nd team defense and got a lot more carries than Lundy. Some backs work better when getting into a rhythm.

    I think both could and would do well in this system. Lundy may not be much of a blocker so far, but he has great hands and has shown he can be a between the tackles, carry the load type.

    Morency is quicker and can make people miss in the open field.

    I love the combination, why feel the need to pick?

    Morency definitely has the edge, but him and Lundy make a great 1, 2 punch. I am worried DD will have more pain in his knee, but it is nice to know these other 2 guys are up for the challenge, and I don't think they will hold the team back.

    Morency looks great out there. He looks like he can break one everytime he runs.
