    Here's one thing I'm right about: we will be much better without Ron Dayne running the ball. The difference in the defense's respect of the RBs speed to the edge already has openned up the bootlegs. surely, you've noticed that.

    While I'm here:

    1. Matt Schaub would be a very good QB.
    2. Mario Williams being a smart pick
    2b. Reggie Bush was way over rated as a pro back.
    2c. It would take yearsss for Vince to develop into a quality passer
    3. Rashod Butler
    4. At least 8 wins last year

    He is still a free agent, I think- if all else fails we could see him lumbering down the field once again!:gun: Although, goodness knows how many double burgers the man has eaten during training season.:winky:

    That's his way of training (eating double cheeseburgers). Go ahead, pick on the fat guy if you must.



    Seriously though I was totally dead right about Ahman Green from the instant that I heard about his signing with the Texans. Two things on that.

    1. I really wish I hadn't been right about that. I would have loved to have been wrong on this one. For those of you who think we still have one year to see what happens just watch. The guy will barely play and that's IF he makes it out of training camp as a Texan.

    2. It didn't exactly take Nostradamus to see what was going to happen here. I am the "Master of the Obvious" after all.

    Not Nostradamus, just Mastrobvious.

    You all might not like this but I really don't see a true risk in bringing back the D train.

    Dayne would be in camp if it were up to me. He's supposed to be done here but I really don't see his replacement yet. Slaton and Dayne would be a pretty good rotation in my opinion with the load eventually sliding mostly to Slaton's side by the end of the season. Maybe Brown will be able to be that guy or maybe the light comes on for Taylor. I don't know, something's got to happen though and I'm sure it will.

    Dayne knows how to push the pile along and fight for yards.

    It was an accident, could have happened to anybody.

    So go ahead and subtract Dayne and give me your estimate of our running game and W/L column the past two years with Wali Lundy and Samkon Gado.
