    Dayne Train was unstoppable today.....Would have been something like 175 yards, 3 tds if no penalty on that one run.

    He's playing like Jerome Bettis. Maybe we don't need to draft Adrian Petterson.

    We don't need AP. We need another fast and flashy back he can burn out the defenses.

    Dayne was good.But the Colt's horrible rushing D had something to do with his success...

    Add a decent amount of pass protection and we could have something in the making

    18 rushes
    94 yards

    why? chris taylor is lightning. ron dayne is thunder. i think we have alot of areas on this team that need to be addressed, and maybe drafting a RB is not the way to go. i think we still need a disruptive demon at defensive tackle and 1 more shutdown corner. to me, those are more important than drafting a RB. i wouldnt be surprised if the texans traded down to get more picks.

    No way we're in position to draft Adrian Peterson now. I'm even thinking we'll beat the Browns. We might be in the perfect spot for Landry now, though.

    I think you're right. I was on the draft Joe Thomas bandwagon (no pun intended), and I thought we might have an outside chance at him if we lost the last 2 games. But, I'll take the wins and Landry in a heartbeat. :yahoo:

    At this point in time, before all the scores are final for this weekend, here is the order of teams with fewer wins than Houston:

    oakland 2 wins
    detroit 2 wins
    cleveland 4 wins
    arizona 4 wins
    tampa 4 wins
    houston 5 wins
    washington 5 wins (beat Houston)

    If Houston drafts 6th overall, we might still get Peterson. But I suddenly believe we'll have 6 wins after next weekend......

    Ok.. first

    AP hasnt declared yet,

    2nd,

    Even if he declares, he will drop big time due to injury. Look how much willis mcgehee dropped.

    lastly,

    For those who say we dont need AP, look what saints, or pittsburg did last year, or others when they had two playmakers in the backfield. Yes, I have never liked Dayne's play until the last 4 weeks. He has turned it on. I am impressed, any he can playmake.
