    Did any of you hear the story on Wali Lundy just a couple days back, his Mother and Father both died when he was around 12 and then he almost died from some scar tissue on his appendix I believe, and then his brother died not to far back.................Very sad but a very strong kid, that puts his faith in God, he said thats what gets him through all that has happened to him.

    If this has been here before you guys can earse it, but I am rooting for this kid to make the squad and do well, he was very productive in College and thats what Kubiak liked about him................

    Do you have a link in which this story came from?

    I find it interesting that The Texans are coming around nicely. I think they are getting the right people that have it both on the inside and outside.

    Wow, to overcome all of that with a positive attitude, he has alot of strength. I think that Iron Will will translate to success in the NFL, he just doesn't give up. I will be cheering him on.

    At the draft luncheon, Casserly told about an on-going joke between him and Kubiak about how they could get any old running back from the 6th round, and Kubiak could plug him in and get success.

    Wali was a 6th round pick. Early reports suggest that he is a Kubiak kinda runner.

    Yeah, definitely a kleenex kinda bio.

    Build your offense on the first day of the draft then take a back every year on the second day except for the years when someone exceptional falls. If Lundy plays well he will be one of the cornerstone stories that will surround the start of the Kubiak era.

    Assuming Lundy impresses the team as much as it sounds like he he has, I wonder how he fits. 3 talibacks are the norm, but I wonder if Morancy stays with the team. It asking a lot for him to change to the style of the scheme.
    If they do a lot of 3 wrs sets, Cook could be the only fb. That would open the door for Lundy. Practice squad might be more practical. Either way, I agree the future looks bright for Lundy!!!

    I really think that Morency gets traded or cut and Lundy becomes the backup to DD. Smith and then another back situtional back, either Bennit or a fb/rb tweener, would round out the five.

    I made a post on Buy/Sell a month ago or so..

    Lundy will make the team and become one of Kubiacs favorite players..If DD gets hurt Lundy will start.

    Next guy sold but i don't blame him, it's a long shot, but I got a feeling about this kid. I hope i'm right.

    well said :) and the reason why the Texans should of taken a QB named Vince Young.......except the chance to draft a stud defensive end came along the kind you don't get a chance to add to your team everyday :mario:

    the very reason & crux of the matter why the Texans passed on Reggie Bush :stirpot:
