Dayne or Morency?

Postby Doughhead » Wed Sep 06, 2006 12:46 pm

Okay, so it looks like Wali Lundy is the man in Houston for the moment. However, it seems to be a fairly volatile situationa and I wouldn't be too surprised if another back was starting in Houston before long. If Lundy does falter, would Dayne or Morency take over as the primary back?

I would say Morency, because Dayne is going to be used in short yardage/goalline situations.

Morency, most definitely. Dayne's just there for depth.

Lessee:

Tiki or Dayne? Tiki.
Bell (Mike/Tatum) or Dayne? Bell.
Morency or Dayne? Morency.

See the trend?

If the coaching staff were still the old Houston squad I would certainly say Morency. The problem is we're talking about an offense that Dayne already knows: Kubiak's offense.

First off, I expect Lundy to be solid, although unspectacular. If he doesn't do well I will actually expect Morency to get the backup role, although Dayne will likely get some action. Assuming Lundy is injured or is ineffective, if Morency doesn't show up I think Dayne will definitely get looks merely because of the head coach's familiarity with the player.

Kubiak wouldn't have signed him otherwise. I have no information to back this statement up whatsoever, but I kind of wonder if Denver bringing Dayne in was Kubiak's idea to begin with and that's why Shanahan wasn't in love with him during the preseason.

From a mere standpoint of all the information I've read I have to go with Morency, but honestly my gut is telling me Dayne.

i think you'll see dayne continually eat into the carries that lundy and morency get until he has the majority. i'd say by week 6 dayne could be the full blown starter in houston. but i own him in too many leagues, so maybe i'm biased. ;-)
