Okay as we can see it's completely obvious that we have a nice committee of RBs here and with this system it's not hard to turn a dirt rock into a diamond. For goodness sakes there was word that Denver is starting a Undrafted Rookie over Tatum Bell and Ron Dayne.

Lundy has shown his ability to run in this offense, but lacks the blocking ability and where he lacks Morency makes up for with his block.. Both of these backs can carry the ball for us..

How would you guys feel about trading Domanick Davis??

DD has little or no trade value at present.

Actually he probably has negative value considering the cap hit.

Would we even be able to with his knee problem? Everyone's worried about his future. Personally, I think having Morency and a healthy DD is just what this team needs--although a really good CB would be very nice.

Unfortunately, at this point in time, he's untradable given his contract and injury history.

To be traded to another team, the player has to pass a physical. DD cannot.

How 'bout 900 yds., to go with Morency's 1200? :yahoo:

Ditto. In his current health and with current contract, he's untradable.

If he gets better, I'd put him in above anyone else we've got on the roster right now, or possibly have him back up Morency.

Moot point though as no one is going to give us squat for him right now.

So easy how great things get forgotten. Well yall talk about how Kub makes good RBs out of nobodys, so how well do you think davis could do with kubs running the show ??? Come on people D.D will get healthy and have a good career for the TEXANS !!!!

If Lundy, Morency or whoever ends up being the feature back gets the job done and then some, then I would consider trading DD. The only way he will be traded though is if he comes back healthy. Teams may shy away however since he seems to be injured quite often.

Personally, I'm just WAY too emotionally attached to DD to want to see him gone.

Pretty accurately put...........I'm afraid that the only physical he would pass would be the one given by the Texans.

I do not understand why people are so down on DD. The guy has been a hoss for this team, and the play by Morency and Lundy is only going to push the guy that much harder when he gets healthy. What we have going on in Houston is a no B.S. talented group of RB's who are batteling it out for PT. If they keep it up like this we are going to have a lot of fun this year. When DD is ready he will get his chance to shine with this new revamped running game and I hope the guy tears it up!

yah im stoked to see Lundy and Morency do well. When DD is back we will have 3 quality RBs. Eventually we will be able to trade one of em for a nifty sum.

Davis is un tradeable. He'll be lucky to come back as a starter if he comes back.

First off someone never explained to you that you buy low and sell high and a back with a percived bum knee and a large cap number is not exactly worth a lot.

Second DD will be fine and while he has more wear and tear on him than Morencey and Lundy I believe he will flourish more in this system over the next 3-4 years (barring major injury) than anyone else on this current roster.

Third DD is a HUGE threat catching the ball out of the backfield and to me more than picking up defenders on a blitz this is a bigger unknown with the young guys.

Let's all hope DD, Morencey, Lundy and anyone else (ie. Smith or any other back) stay healthy and fresh all year.

Trading DD would be like trading Yao or T-Mac from the Rox's because of injuries last season. Let this guy get healthy and come back at full speed and I bet you would stick a fork in that pork chop at the ideal of trading DD. Even so the guy deserves the right to bounce back from this injury and be apart of the next BIG THANG!!! TEXANS KICKING SOME MAJOR @SS.:stirpot:


Once he come back, think about the thoroghbred's that we can pull out the stables. Man it's gonna be time to recognize that these boys gonna run that ball down teams throat,literally. DD,VM,Lundy:cowboy1:

No no no... Us DD and Carr fans are suppose to believe these 'Board Coaches' and trade away all our trash and keep all the great 'Playmakers' that we have in Buchanon, Babin, TJ and Co. We only need to trade away Carr and DD for VY and Jesus Bush so they can snap the ball, run it, throw it, catch it (well tehy can occasionally let Moulds and AJ have a TD) and we will be back in the playoffs by Week 12! Oh and we have to get rid of Kubes, we will go get ourselves a coach like Tice who scalps tickets shall we?

I really don't know why some peole post on here w/out research. Davis was only just shy of his 3rd 1,000 yard season in a row and because he hurt his knee and didnt manage that we need to get rid of the guy... unFREAKIN'believable it is here some times. Makes me embarrassed to be a Texan fan with support for our players and team like that :hides:

Well, IMO, before we dump DD I think we need to take a chill pill and watch the movie Seabisquit.

In a rotating RB scheme he won't have to carry as much, but his natural running style could be a very good match for us. Look at how well Morency is doing now that he has started learning the 1 cut and run style. From what I am seeing in Preseason, having 3 RBs combine for 2000 to 2500 yards this season could well be within our grasp.

Seabisquit!!! That's the nickname he's neen needin' :redtowel:

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say 3000. :bananasplit:

edit: That includes Carr's running too, though.

I don't see DD being a factor at all this season....He hasn't even practiced since last year...I understand everyones "love" for him, but honestly I think it's time to move on...Im not saying that he can't contribute to this team, but it's looking more and more like his days as a featured contributor are over.

I think it's too early to say this. I do think that with Morency and Lundy stepping up, DD can get good and healthy before he comes back.

I too would like to see what DD can do in this offense, but at this point Im not worried about him not being ready...I don't think missing him is going to hurt us too much if at all...But realistically when is he going to be ready? He has basically not practiced or taken contact since last year...New regime, new scheme, new players stepping up...where does he fit in ? It's not just the physical side that he has to be ready for; he also would need to be comfortable in our system...I just personally don't think he's going to see much time this year if ever at all...:fireball:

I know I will be bashed for this, but I believe his days as a featured back are over for sure, and frankly, I won't be shocked if he is cut or placed on IR. You heard it hear first - IR, PUP, or Cut. He will not see much, if any, playing time this season.

That's my early guess as well. I surely do hope that he will recover sufficiently to play again; I love his skill and what he'll bring to the table for us, but IMO he is not likely to get a lot of action this year. I would guess he'll go PUP to start the year.

Domanick could possibly be a wash let's hope not, we just paid him a huge amount of money to peddle on the bike every day, He has no value at all right now with his knee up in the air.......Let's hope he get's healthy soon and back in the lineup, for another 1,000 yard season.........

Give him time to get a 100%. DD will make a great 3rd down back.

Hey, you can't call that! LOL I did it last week, well except for the cut part, but I think it is a very real possibility. From what CND has said about that kind of surgery and how it looks like he isn't progressing to well............well, as much as I like DD, he may be heading to 3rd back land at best or out the door. To bad IMO if that happens. Good guy and a good runner.

DD has started 36 games during his career. Over that span, he has amassed 4471 total yards from scrimmage and 33 TDs. That is an average of 124.2 yards per game. That stacks up comparably to many of the top backs' first three years.

As a point of reference, Marshall Faulk averaged 99.4 total yards per game over his first three years. During his 1000/1000 season, Roger Craig averaged 129.1 total yards per game. Craig's best three seasons taken together averaged 117.27 total yards per game.

DD is the type of back that is a dual threat, total yardage type guy. Plenty of Super Bowls have been won in the past with backs like that. DD, if healthy, is nowhere close to being a problem on this team. The health issue is obviously a problem, but if Kubiak can find someone to step up, there's no reason to discard a potent weapon like DD.

Right now for a team that is rebuilding, you keep DD especially if you are looking for a return in October at worse. I don't think you start him though. 3rd down back to bring him along and get him hungry and if his performance shows, you start him after all that.

First off whoever that was getting all brolic cause I asked a simple question, it's not that crucial I'm just on here making conversations and if you feel like you have to write your little "message board coach, trade for Jesus Bush and all that other unnessecary blah blah blah just to make yourself seem like a bigger person than go right ahead but i think that's it extremely petty when it was just a simple question asked.. But don't come at me with that bull-flop when I'm just making friendly conversation.

Anyway back to business, of course I know buy low and sell high, you wouldn't buy something worth a Grand and then sell it when it deppreciates in value to $25 cent and that's pretty much where we're at with DD, but I'm saying if he comes back healthy what do you guys think?

Jeez, how quickly hypocritical remarks become apparent.

"<insert name> should not be considered a great player based on his performance in the preseason."

"<insert name> has never even taken an NFL regular season snap! How could they possibly be relied on?"

are things I've heard frequently recently. Morency has a whopping 46 attempts for 184 yards. And Lundy has a total of 0 attempts for 0 yards in the NFL regular season. While I think they show a lot of promise, I'm hesitant to completely write off a totally PROVEN back in DDavis. If Kubes can bring ou the best in these two, I'm sure he can work miracles with DDavis as well.
