Default Ron Dayne?

In a quest to replace the Bus (I know tough shoes to fill), what about Ron Dayne? He is a UFA and that Denver backfield is awefully crowded. I would also venture to say that we should be able to get him pretty cheap. I think the move to Denver really helped him out. He did show flashes of brilliance this past season when he had a chance to play. He has his confidence back now and he is a lot slimmer than his old NYG days.

Len Pasquarelli reported that the Falcons would be trying to trade T.J. Duckett which interests me alot more than Dayne. Maybe they can make it happen... I remember many year ago the Steelers made a draft day trade for a big/power back that was a castaway from the Rams.

Dayne is free though and only costs a contract. I wonder what Atlanta wants for him?

Are you all forgetting DUCE, I don't think we are hurting all that much in the backfield.

Duckett is a great goaline runner. I think if we do not keep Duce, definatly. Trade our extra 3rd and 4th picks for Ducket..

NOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooo!!!!!!

Believe me. We do NOT want Lame Ron Dayne on our FB Team. He couldn't find the hole if we paved the way w/ yellow bricks. He's been in the league since 1999 or 2000 and has done Noth-ing. I'd rather bring Fu back. Hmmm.

Lee Suggs at 206 is even smaller than Willie Parker, and Suggs is <<< Willie Parker.

But I thought Reuben Droughns only signed a one year deal in Cleveland...although he's not a big back, he does run for power...

i like that idea. here recently running backs usually have a down weak after they play the steelers from being so beat up. droughns and samkon gado each had BIG weeks after they played the steelers. i think both these guys are strong, tough runners. samkons a little small too i think but he definitely impressed me this season.

maybe we can get william green so porter can punch him before every game to get fired up without worrying about getting ejected. now theres an idea!
