Did he get hurt or did the Giants just completely give up on him ?

He's fat and slow. Great for college, not so much for the pros.

Him and Tiki were Thunder and Lightning for a few years then he just fell off. I know I'll prolly get my ass laughed at for this, but if i was a GM and could get him for cheap, I would do it.

I know if the Giants trade him, he will probably be a stud somewhere else, thats just there luck. I mean he did win the Heisman Award, he must have SOME talent

Ron Dayne was decent during the Thunder and Lightning days. However, he showed up to training camp about twenty pounds overweight and Jim Fassel wasn't pleased with him. They got in a few arguments and it seemed that Fassel went out of his way not to play him.

Tom Coughlin mentioned in an interview (I'll try and find the link, it's about a month old) that he had talked with Dayne and is looking forward to working with him. He also mentioned that Dayne would be looked at during training camp and try and find a better role for him with the team. With Coughlin's history of using RBBCs (Fraud Taylor and James Stewart, Fragile Fred and Stacey Mack, Stacey Mack and Elvis Joseph [?]) I would think that Ron Dayne may have some limited value next season in larger leagues, possibly as a TD vulture.

At Wisconsin, when he set the college rushing record, the guy had an awesome O-line, and just tremendous power for a college rusher. I used to watch the guy run into a pile of players, and then watch the whole pile move foward 5-10 more yards. It was amazing to watch, over and over again. Of course, power rushing in college and the NFL are two completely different things. The guy has little patience when it comes to letting a play develop, and then is not great at picking holes. I think the guy could still be a legit NFL power rusher, but needs some better coaching in order to learn how to properly use his skills. He never adjusted his game when moving up from college to the pros. With a willingness to change his game, and a decent running back coach, I think he could still be a good short yardage/goal-line runningback.
