    Running back years aren't quite like gymnast or figure skater years but they are close.

    32 is young for a writer or businessman but for a tailback it's retirement time.

    Sad day. He seemed like an upstanding veteran. I'm surprised the Texans didn't want him back. He was solid in fill-in spots and I think our non-trade of Tate showed how highly Gary values the running game.

    hey remember when he had ron dayne and chris brown as running backs, starters none the less.

    Ward was nice to have around, even wanted to be on special teams. How long before he has his own radio show on 790?

    Congrats on a good career, Ward. You were a good Texan.
