    My bad.....I missed the "may" be out and read it as "will" be out. Damn sinus infection has my brain scrambled.

    I'm thinking if Dayne can't go they probably start Walker since he got so much playing time Sunday. I think he already has more touches than Echumandu.

    Echemandu has 20 carries for 85 yds (4.2) & 2 catches for 11 yds. Also has 1 fumble lost.

    Walker has 16 carries for 46 yds (2.9) & 6 catches for 35 yds.

    The way Kubiak was talking in his Monday video on the main site doesn't seem as if Ronnie will be ready to go.
    Said he'll get alot of "treatment" over the week.

    Well the guy that should get a pat on the back is #65. No way I thought he would play that well.

    My bet, after Kubes wacked him across the nose with the rolled up news paper for the first touch fumble, I think he silps the dog Echie on them out of the gate. Walker had very nice debute, but I figuring he wants this game bad. Echie gives them the best chance at a running game if Dayne can't go. He's the better athlete.

    Hey why not line up without Dayne, nothing like increasing the degree of difficulty... again.

    I think we will see the team line up in more and more multi receiver sets, I know Kubes wants to feature a run game but we just don't have the horses left for it and besides AJ, KW, AD and JJ + OD makes for some pretty impressive receiving power.

    That sucks this is one situation where the Dayne Train would have been absoutely perfect.

    I think speading the defense out would help our running game too. Elvis Dumervil vs Salaam is truly terrifying. We've got to at least give him a chip in order to keep him from speed rushing around the outside. Otherwise, Sage will be seeing the turf again.:pirate:

    I dont think we should lineup w/o a running back in this situation. Denver has the best secondary in the NFL, and one of the worst run defenses in the NFL. I think we'd have more success against their run D than trying to throw at Bailey, Bly, Foxworth, Lynch all day. At least keep the RB in the backfield to keep the defense honest. I like the idea of going 3 and 4 wide but lets save that for when we face the Colts and the Jags.

    Damn this sucks! I was really hoping for Schaubby to get the start on national television but I have faith in Rosenfels. I'm just a bigger Schaub fan, who wants to see him get some respect.

    Just give Ronnie a couple of horse pills and he'll be good. Just joking, but seriously, hopefully he can play.

    Heck, just put a cake behind the goal post (make sure it's the right goalpost :bat: )

    Demeco is more of a concern to me. Hurt his knee and didn't practice Monday and I think Tuesday.
