Since Travis Henry is not to happy in buffalo and will problably want to be traded next year, maybe we could pursue him since noone seems to be happy with our RB situation even though i like D. Davis !

if he is available to us.. he may be a nice pickup. Though I dont know that he will be any better than D.Davis.

I think the Bills are going to want to get rid of his salary pretty bad with McGahee apparently going to be there awhile. 4th rounder is about what Id expect.

think travis henry is some version of Free Agent after the season, but i think that list includes the following names

shaun Alexander
E. james
rudi johnson
Lamont jordan

and a pretty good year at the top of the draft for Rbs
Cadillac, Benson among others

If the texans are not happy there are more options to do something about the running game than in most years.

They have been putting the franchise tag on Walter Jones(LT) every year, so they have some huge decisions to make.

I just really dont see them getting rid of Alexander... he wins the games for them. To my knowledge they have noone behind Hasselback that could take over.. as for Walter Jones.. he is in his 8th year.. still has about another 4 years.. but Alexander and Hasselback are in their 5th and 6th year. I think keeping them two and letting jones go if necessary, would be the better move for their future. They dont want to start rebuilding so soon after they finally start making playoff runs

I am really not trying to point anything out because sometimes there were things out of his control but an intresting note: Davis has had 5 multi-TD games, we are 1-4 when he was two TDs in a game with the one win coming against the Falcons. Also, Davis has scored in 3 games this year, we have lost all 3.

Staying healthy is why every one is saying Davis is some version committee/3rd down back. He always has something, does not look like he can the pounding week in week out.

For whoever said the 10 yard thing is on the OL, I disagree. The first 5 to 7 yards is what an OL can get you just by blocking. After that its primarily on the talents of the RB. The good RBs beat DBs and LBs in space, by running through, around, or by the defender.

El Tejano
11-10-2004, 09:06 AM
I can' believe all the Hollings support over Davis considering Hollings hasn't done much by even a back ups standards. I would like to see the remaining of the season for Davis before I write him off. His receiving yards do indicate he is a 3rd down back though.

SBTexans08
11-10-2004, 11:12 AM
We definitely need a durable, every down, every week, productive, consistent back....but who doesn't. IMO, we need to draft a back....Cadillac Williams or Cedric Benson would be fantastic! Who knows if those guys will be around though for when we go to pick. I seriously think we are an HB away from being considered a playoff team year after year.

11-10-2004, 12:23 PM
Cedric is a big bang it in there back and all, but I think he is a bit slow for the NFL. You can get away with being a tad slow in college, but the NFL will make him look like he is running with hip boots on IMO.

I dont think fans want to get rid of him. But as for him being the feature back, I dont think so. Draft a RB with the 1st or 2nd pick, depending on where Brown is expected to go, jk. And let him learn for the year, while we fight over who should be the RB. Then he can come in his second year and run. I think the rookie could actually take the RB spot from DD, and Hollings next year. The only thing I have confidence in our O doing, is passing.

Please enlighten me.Remember that the NFL is a busniess and to get what you want a player may need to go to the extreme. Skipping mandatory camps happen all the time around the league and I bet that he was welcomed back with open arms when he returned. I have never heard one of the Colts players say something negative about Edge. Plus, we will give him a new contract so there wont be a contract problem.

11-10-2004, 05:54 PM
I think that if you look at the RB situation, it cant be argued that DD will become an all-pro in the future. He just doesnt have the tools. However, he was effective last year because he had some better holes than this year. He hasnt really put any great ankle breaking moves on anyone, nor has he been Bus like and run over that many people. He is a good quality third down back, just like he was his whole college career. The team needs a better run game, and its hard to say how to do that. Clearly the Oline needs to be helped, but that is easier to do after the first round because they generally arent the prized players (exceptions are Gallery and company). The team needs to decide if they want another high paid standout on offense to go with johnson and carr, or if they want to add someone to the defense thats a high profile play maker. Personally I think they should be mainly focused on either Dline or DB with the first pick, and then look for a RB in the second round, because there is always quality left after the first round at that position. THey could also look in the second and third for the Oline they need to improve. I really think the next draft and FA period will be what makes this team a serious playoff contender or not.

Everyone can argue who the texans would ideally get, james or alexander or whoever, but the real question is still what does the team need most and at what price.

From the Colts MB, "It really was blown out of proportion by the media. James was not just working out in Florida, he was rehabbing the knee. His doctor was in Miami as well as all his rehab. So rather than, report to mini camps and stand on the sidelines doing nothing, he wanted to stay in Miami and continue his rehab treatments/workouts. He had the blessings of the Colts Organizations. The media blew it up as some sort of disgruntlement. Notice this year, with no rehab, he reported right on time and participated just like everyone else."

Blessing of the Colts organization? I guess the fan who posted this was not aware that the Colts front office publicly said he was in breach of contract. I realize that the NFL is a business, but don't call a guy a team player because he skips mandatory camp, breaches his contract, and delays team doctors from looking at his injury because he thinks it will hurt his value in the market.

ok 1st of all wells had 1 100 yrd game,,, not to impressive,,, second we might have the same line with a few additions but were not blocking the same way,,,yeah the zone blocking scheme ! Ok portis was great in Denver went to Washington his first game was good, and than he was in like a 6 week slump ! Davis's last performance against Denver wasnt so bad i say give him to the end of the year before ya make any evaluations, and the line can take partial blame for the running game, and 4 sacks given up against Denver :whistle: thats some strange improvment !

Exactly, its a combination of the two, not only has the run blocking been bad, but hopefully they arent slipping back into the get david carr sacked 40 times a season mode. And i agree that from what i have seen wells has been more productive, but he hasnt been given as many chances as davis. Either way neither one of them is a true feature back, but i would rather see wells in there right now.

My problem is the whole Davis can't hold up and keeps getting hurt deal....Does anybody else watch sports news, or maybe I'm the only one who's taken notice of the fact that a ton of running backs are getting hurt this season...Stephen Davis, Priest Holmes, Edge, Travis Henry, Deuce Staley, Fred Taylor, Cris Brown, Tatum Bell.......I could go on. We should feel lucky that he gets a little banged up and hasn't been seriously hurt. The guy comes in and runs for over 1000 yds in what 13 games? The next season we throw a completely different blocking scheme at the offensive line and they don't seem to execute...For those of you who say well it's dd and not the line, maybe you need to watch a few of the games a bit more.....I've seen dd getting hit in the backfield ten times more than last year and that's definitely not his fault that he's taking one step and getting wrapped up. My personal opinion after last year was if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I would like to see how things would be had we not changed up the scheme. For the person who said wells hasn't gotten any chances after his 100+ yard game....He had the whole first season to prove something and now if he can't straighten his arse up on special teams why would I want him running for me? Davis did have a problem with fumbling at the beginning of the year but shoulda, woulda, coulda it's over and we all need to move on. At some point and time every running back goes through a funk, it's just his came alot sooner than expected. Our running game isn't where we would like it to be but I feel we have three very capable backs...any one of them could produce for 100 yards in a game if the blocks are executed in the fashion their meant to be. Holy **** this is looking like an editorial. Well just wanted to put my two cents in. I like dd, wells and hollings but the offensive line does need to be looked at before we point our fingers at the running backs, whether it be any one of them.

doug,

Question: Ever work with some who is a good person and works well , but always has something going on (legitimately) from kids with the flu, car problems, etc, frustrating as heck...part dependability in sports is the ability to line-up and play at close enough to full strength to do your job...Unfortunately, Davis has all or portions of at least 3 if not 4 regular season games and has really looked healthy enough to perform at a top level maybe 2 of the remaining games. yeah, staying healthy in the NFL for a RB is tough, but it is Davis job to do so.

Doug
11-14-2004, 12:02 PM

He is not a solid big time running back to begin with and on top of that he can't stay on the field.

My problem is the whole Davis can't hold up and keeps getting hurt deal....Does anybody else watch sports news, or maybe I'm the only one who's taken notice of the fact that a ton of running backs are getting hurt this season...Stephen Davis, Priest Holmes, Edge, Travis Henry, Deuce Staley, Fred Taylor, Cris Brown, Tatum BellStephen Davis had 1500 yards last year. Holmes is a TD machine. Edge has led the league in rushhing. Staley has led his team to one of the best records in football. Fred Taylor has made 30 consecutive starts and averages 5 yards a carry. Chris Brown leads the league in runs over 20.

Davis playing hurt, doesnt help the team. He has played hurt most of the season and is averaging 3 yards a carry. Not effective...

I did not even mean imply that it is really fair, but part of judging a RB is his ability to stay healthy even though a good portion of injuries bad luck/not the RBs fault.
