Default Ron Dayne A Steeler Type Back?

Now, I know that I have not got to see him play much this year but the last few weeks given the chance that he has been given in Houston he looks pretty much like the Bus did at one time.. powerful... and pretty good feet ...
What Ya'll think about this?
I Like It....

I could be wrong, but I think he's an inconsistent fumble machine.
Coming out of Wisconsin, he was supposed to be the thunder to Tiki Barber's lightning and for some reason it didn't work out of Dayne.

Ron Dayne is really a Steeler type back. He had a wonderful year as the 3rd back with Denver last year and is wasting away in Houston. I've questioned before if we shouldnt have given him a look. Mike Anderson as well. Big, tough plodder is exactly what we need as a change of pace for Fast Willie

Ron Dayne is the biggest ***** big back i've ever seen. He doesn't break a whole lot of tackles and gets taken down on the first hit. You definatly don't want him.

Ron Dayne is a total bust - everyone runs on the Colts these days.

150 yards and he had a sprained ankle - thats just an indicator regarding the opposition than any great comment on his ability.

Nope, don't want him. He's a bust - he couldn't even make it in the Broncos' system. If a RB can't make it in Shanahan's RB-friendly system, he's not going to make it anywhere, period.

You hate Willie don't you? This isn't the first thread I've seen you start where you mentioned another runningback replacing him. Anyway, Dayne is a bust. Like LITP said anyone can run on the colts. fansince also mentioned that he couldn't run behind the Broncos line, which makes him even worse. My kitten can run behind that zone blocking line for crying out loud.

In this case, I don't think he wants to replace Willie, he wants to pick up a viable power back who can pick up those 3rd and 1's and hammer opposing defenses while being able to spell Willie for a few series, like the Giants do with Brandon Jacobs. Even I think that is an area of need - Davenport clearly is not the answer, and neither is Dayne.
