  1. Our wettest dream has come true!

    I just picked up the newspaper and read this. Oh, what a wonderful day !!!!
  2. Julius Jones

    I've never quite figured out whether Jerry Jones is a Julius fan or not. Locally, when you hear Jerry talk it sounds like clearly Julius is his starter, but for the past 2 years now there again comes this trade talk for Julius. I think they are serious about "if the right offer comes along". That right offer is going to be a very high 2nd for Jerry to do this though I think. As for players who knows what Dallas wants. I can't even speculate as to what Dallas is trying to do or how they will draft. Defensively they want to move Henry to safety so another corner will be in the near future and there really needs to be some real effort into finding a younger solid wide receiver. As for Julius he never really seemed to be comfortable with Parcells. I think he has something but only will you see it if the team has a decent OL that can give him that second to view the lane. Remember, his brother really spared us out for a couple of years also before he came around. I think Julius is better than his brother.
  3. Just looking to next year as to who you huddlers think with be the next great rookie running back for 2007.
  4. Romo to start in Dallas

    Exactly...no real Cowboy fan is that attached to Bledsoe, but Romo to me is just a mobile Bledsoe throwing picks instead of a statue throwing picks. I guess it will at least be more entertaining for us Cowboy fans. Oh, and one more way to beat the 'boyz is just throw to whomever Roy Williams might be covering.
  5. Romo Time

    Tony Romo is a scrambling Drew Bledsoe. He'll throw a ton of stupid interceptions also. I think they have to go back to Bledsoe one more time...What a nightmare for us Cowboy fans right now. Dallas should have given their #1 pick last year to Atlanta for Matt Schaub. Instead we used that pick for a linebacker who can't even dress for a game...geniuses in that "war room" for Dallas. I thought Parcells was a coaching god...he has done nothing of note here in Dallas.
  6. Mike Vick - "Screw it"

    Every year we start hearing how Vick doesn't have any receivers. Atlanta drafts receivers, Atlanta trades for receivers, Atlanta signs free agent receivers, and never they have found a good one to match with Vick. Could any of you imagine his completion percentage if it weren't for Warrick Dunn? After this year it should be clear that the MVE should be done with and he is just an odd fit for a NFL team. Atlanta should be using Schaub as the starter and Vick as a gimmick...then this team will be a real threat.
  7. Jax-Indy Updates ?

    How is Jones-Drew looking and why is he stealing so many Fred Taylor carries? Thanks!
  8. We start 3 running backs in this league and my 3 and 4 options are Dillon or J. Jones. Kind of up in the air as to who to start in my 3rd spot.

    NO, not right now.

    I wouldn't bet on being right about anything in Houston at the moment, but I disagree that Gado is that far behind. Sherman coaching puts Gado ahead of the curve in this situation. You're right that trades once the season starts usually have little impact, but for this combination of player and coach it does make this situation a little different. How much, who knows, but I do put some value in it. whoops... from the bronco billy statement earlier in the thread "If that were the case, HOU would have made this move in preseason, not half way to week 2 games - especially since Morency had a good game in preseason week 3 and would have appeared to have higher value than he really did. Rarely are in-season trades any kind of impact trade, unless it is a team getting rid of a disgruntled player that they know won't be playing for them any more (ie - Branch to SEA). Gado is WAY behind the other RBs in HOU, despite his association with Sherman. You could be right, but I sure wouldn't pick that side of any bet - the odds are too long."

    The fact that Sherman is the OC in Houston leads me to think that Gado will be given a chance to start, unless of course Lundy just goes nuts in the next few weeks. Over the summer we kept reading about how Gado was not picking up the new Green Bay system and at least from comments you read on the net that Noah Herron had seemed to move up over Gado did not bode well for Gado. Morency probably does meet the mold of Ahman Green better also. Anyway, I'm guessing you might see Gado starting at some point soon just to see if Houston has a better option. I would not lean on any Houston running back for more than anything other than backup support for the upcoming weeks. From the Houston Texans website below also: "Texans trade for Gado September 13, 2006 By Nick Schenck HoustonTexans.com Head coach Gary Kubiak announced after practice Wednesday that the Texans and Green Bay Packers have agreed to swap running backs Vernand Morency and Samkon Gado. The trade will become official once each player passes his physical, which could happen as soon as Thursday. Playing under current Texans assistant head coach/offense Mike Sherman last year in Green Bay, Gado (5-10, 226) gained 582 yards on 143 carries (4.1 avg.) and tied for the league lead among rookies with six rushing touchdowns. He also had 10 receptions for 77 yards (7.7 avg.) and another score. Gado played in eight games with five starts in place of injured running backs Ahman Green and Najeh Davenport. Gado missed the final two games after spraining his right knee. Gado was originally signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent from Liberty University. After spending some time on the Chiefs’ practice squad and being released, Green Bay signed him to their practice squad Oct. 17 before activating him 12 days later. Known for his breakaway speed, Gado played his best game versus Detroit on Dec. 11. 2005. He gained 171 rushing yards and scored on a 64-yard touchdown run. He finished with 180 yards of total offense. In November, Gado earned NFL offensive Rookie of the Month honors. A third-round pick in 2005, Morency played in 13 games with one start last season. He gained 184 rushing yards and scored two touchdowns. Playing behind rookie Wali Lundy this year, Morency rushed five times for 13 yards against the Eagles in Week 1. "
  12. Julius Jones in trouble?

    DMD is right on about what he saw in the game. JJ was getting hit before he could even get a step it seemed on a few of those carries. The other odd thing is they kept swinging JJ out to the right and he is not an east-west runner. The starting OL for Dallas last night just didn't do a good job against the starting Minn DL. Regardless, with what I perceive will be a mediocre OL neither running back will be a top 15 RB but both will continue to rotate pretty evenly throughout the season. If the offensive line was better I still stink that Jones would be the primary back, but with this mess I just can't tell.
  13. T-Man is the the most annoying out there currently. It's going to be a long year of Monday nighters...
  14. You're Colts GM Trade a 2nd for Vet RB?

    Offer up a pick to Dallas for Marion Barber or Julius Jones...other option is a late pick for Mewelde Moore.
  15. Cowboy Fans Huddle Up!

    This move disappoints me in a few ways. The "Star" incident of course, his past actions give me little confidence that he'll change but even more so is that the Cowboys cannot produce a receiver. This team has done nothing but produce one receiver (Michael Irvin) since Jerry bought the team. Resorting to signing TO just emphasizes that even more. Actually, the "Star" incident is a little overblown but as a fan it's something will always nerve me a little when I see him in a Cowboys uniform. I hope Bill makes TO his water boy for a few days in camp!
  16. Edge...its all about $$$$?

    Okay, 1 in 1,600 then. I wish him well also.
  17. Indiana RB

    I'm surprised we are not hearing more Maurice Morris speculation out there. I think he would be a good fit for the Colts. There should be a running back fall to them in the draft but I can't believe they would rely on a rookie in there system unless it's one of the top 3 backs...which will not be there unless Indy trades up.
  18. Edge...its all about $$$$?

    And going to the team that pays him the most makes him different than what ball player?
  19. Favre to be cut Today...

    Are we talking Irvin, Emmitt and Novacek at the twilights of their careers? Honestly, Favre needs to retire or get a change of scenery with another team. Green Bay has no tight end to speak of any longer and Ahman Green is probably not even going to be an average back next year. Walker coming back should help but Robert Ferguson really doesn't frighten too many people. I didn't think the D was that bad last year considering Favre kept handing the ball to the opposing team so often. The D however will not be the same without coach Bates. He probably had them overachieving if anything. I just don't see a reason for Favre to hang around nor for Green Bay to do so. I don't think Favre is much of a mentor for Rodgers either.
  20. Ahman Green re-signed

    This tape issue has always puzzled me when it comes to running backs. If tape is such a source for defenses then why don't we see more rookie or receivers with little playing time come in and light up defenses. Gado simply broke tackles and ran through secondarys. I'm not saying tape doesn't help but what do you really expect out of some rookie running back. He's not going to show your defense something you've never seen before. The argument that defenses might not have been as concerned with Gado's running abilities and focussed on Favre holds more weight.
  21. Ahman Green re-signed

    If anything, it tells me that they made their decision with the #5 pick. That statement is clueless. Of all the teams in the top 10, Green Bay probably has the fewest weaknesses. 1353986[/snapback] That's a homer statement. A 4-12 record must indicate a team with no weaknesses then especially in a mediocre division. Wow...
  22. Ahman Green re-signed

    Wasted money in my opinion on Green. Green, when healthy last year couldn't do what Gado was doing. Green Bay needs to draft the best person on the board when their pick comes up and just start acquiring talent rather than trying to figure out what holes they need to plug. This is a team with weaknesses everywhere.
