Who do you guys and gals think the leading rusher at the end of this season?
I think Morency will end up as the starter some time this season & will have the most rushing yards.
lundy will break out as the starter and the top leauge rusher with 1500 yrds, with a run for OROY.
Could be one of those situations where both backs end up with 600-900 yards.
Lundy has the best chance, being the starter. I think he will break 1000, maybe get up to 1300
Lundy 1100 yds 6 TDs
Morency 550 yds 2 TDs
Dayne 300 yds 6 TDs
Of course it remains to be seen how Dayne works out as a "short yardage" back, since he hasn't had success in that role in the past. If Kubes truly has plans for Dayne to be the goal line back then I think the numbers above are close. If Dayne doesnt work out then Lundy becomes even more attractive from a stats perspective.
First of all, Kubiak will not be one dimensional like the Caper days were we relied just on Domanick Davis, to carry the whole offense, it will be a one two punch dual backs morency and wali, that way other teams do not know who to key on the entire season.....Caper days are over...
I would guess that Morency will edge out Lundy, but I am somewhat surprised that the substitution hasn't been made official already. My guess is that Morency will receive the nod sooner rather than later and will capture the Texans rushing title. IMO Morency is just the better package.
wali lundy will have the yards and touchdowns
morency will have more yards than dayne
dayne will have more tds then morency
by the end of the season everyone will be throwing up the question, "imagine the one two punch of lundy and davis along with morency and dayne?!"
texans rushing game will be alright everyone
Lundy - he fits Kubiak's system better
But he won't dominate - Morency will have a great year, too.
Kubiak likes to keep the other teams off balance by not having one guy to key on, or one dull game plan
Thank God we don't have to endure any more "we have to execute the plan better" statements on Monday morning.....
especially when we had no plan....
I think it's going to be Morency.
this is a tough one, but i think it will be morency
Lundy = 1100+
Morency = 600+
Dayne = 300+
My guess is Morency. Lundy will do good this year, but will wear out towards the end of the season like all rookies do in the NFL. Morency, with a year under his belt and conditioned, will end up with the starts and a few more yards. I think he'll have a 1000-1100 yard season this year.
This will really test the theory that the Denver system is a plug-in-any-player kind of system that yields a 1000+ yard back
If the Texans can do it with a 6th round rookie draft pick, it will surely confirm this considering Denver will probably do the same with an undrafted rookie.
The reason I think Lundy won the job was because he looked like what DD had done the best in the past couple of years and that was being Carr's favorite check down target.
Besides the one pass in the first preseason game that he dropped because he tried to run before he caught the ball, Lundy looked great finding the open spots for Carr to dink and dunk the ball to all day.
I like Morency's speed and burst once he makes his cuts and his blitz pick-ups, which is why I see him playing on a lot of 3rd down passing situations where he chip blocks and runs a delayed flats route.
Like Lundy can hold up though, I see him starting every game barring injury and as long as he can pick up his blocks on passing downs
Morency. I have been saying since last year that that kid is amazing. In my opinion we should have as much of a "committee" as possible but have Morency in there for the majority. Ron Dayne will help us in the short yardage, Jameel Cook may as well. As for Lundy, well.... he is an exciting young prospect and I hope he can carry the team as well. I know that one of them will.
Lundy looks like a quick back that could be great in our system. Still I have yet to see him pick-up a blitz. Maybe this is something he can learn on the way.
My pick is Morency because I think he is an every down back.
