youngest tripple threat in the league
u got david carr, domanik davis, and andre johnson do all u guys agree? how scary is this, none of these guys are in there 30's hopefully they can b together 4 a long time :thumbup

I'm with you on Carr and Johnson, but I'm not too sure what's going to happen with DD. Right now, I want to see more of Wells.

rittenhouserobz 10-12-2004 05:28 AM

I am more excited about the Carr, AJ, and Armstrong triplet combination. That is much scarier to defenses IMO.

Grid 10-12-2004 07:11 AM

if DD doesnt work out.. we are going to NEED an every down back to round out or offense. you just cant compete in the NFL without some kind of running game.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS 10-12-2004 07:49 AM

Kay Jay Harris! he probably won't be drafted until the 3rd round because he has only played 1 season at the Division 1 level.

If only Carr could finish a game with a clean uniform ...... he takes so many hits , many as he releases or shortly after not to mention the sacks . Ever notice how Manning has ALL DAY to go thru his reads , find a reciever and throw , he seldom gets knocked down much less sacked and as many times a game as they throw the ball thats amazing . Given that kind of line play , Carr Johnson , Davis , Armstrong and Gaffney can put up the same kinda numbers as Manning , Harrison , Edge , Wayne and Stokley ..... He!! given that kinda time i could put up numbers :thumbup

Id like us to get Cedric Benson :)

Priest Holmes and Ricky Williams both came out of UT.. maybe Cedric Benson is the next generation.

STEEL BLUE TEXANS 10-12-2004 08:23 AM

Cedric Benson will be a first round pick though. I think we will be drafting heavily on defense again. Kay Jay Harris will likely cost us a mid round pick.

I agree i dont think its that Davis is a "bust" but the zone blocking just dont seem to be working for him. Dont worry D.D i still love ya. And man 3rd Coast Playa how can ya say that ya think Davis would be better at KR and PR than J.J moses ??? Moses always gets big returns when we need them most !!! No love for J.J or D.D whats this world coming to ?

Double Barrel 10-12-2004 11:48 AM

Yep, I blame the new zone-blocking for the pressure on Carr and the lack of running games. It is the only thing that has been changed, and it is a significant change at that. I agree with corrosion that Carr never seems to have enough time to make his first reads, much less sit back in the pocket waiting for a WR to get open.

I find it hard for anyone to think a 1,000 yard rushing fourth round RB behind our O-line is a possible bust! while he has had more fumbles this year than all last year (i believe not positive) he has also been injured and for most of preseason to, so give him some time with the o-line and lets see what he can do this season as well.

jacquescas 10-12-2004 02:08 PM

lots of players have single 1000 yard seasons.

Freshjive31 10-12-2004 02:16 PM

true but not many 4th round picks, starting only 10 games behind an O-line that was in the bottom quarter of the league.

El Tejano 10-12-2004 02:27 PM

maybe he just needs to get it going around the 6th week like last year.

jacquescas 10-12-2004 02:29 PM

Dommink Rhodes
any number of the Denver backs , Olandis Gary, etc....

Rhodes was an undrafted rookie who got 1000 yards for indy...

I think the number one challenge of a player who is able to rush for that in a season is to match it the next, when teams are keying on them and have a full season of game film to key in on them.

Harrington - Jones - Williams

whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa.. you think its the zone blocking?

1. the zone blocking has worked fine so far. It worked awesomely in the first two games.. and it worked well enough for Wells in the oakland game.

2. Our RBs have had no trouble putting up good rushing stats behind our current Oline. as i said.. DD did fine in the first two games.. Wells did good against Oakland.

3. There is a very simple reason why DD isnt finding holes.. its because he has happy feet behind the line of scrimmage.. he isnt just rocketing into the hole like he used to.. he is taking too long. I dont know if it is because he is worried about dropping the ball or what.. but watch the games again.. there are SO MANY time where he is shuffling around behind the line.. then tries to hit a hole and just gets ganked.

4. The last game against the Vikes didnt seem to use zone blocking.. at least not in the way we saw it used before. Instead of the whole line moving left or right and DD cutting back into a hole.. they just moved forward and DD tried to power through.. not his strongest point.

DD isnt a bust yet.. but he needs to get it together. Either that, or we need to use him differently.

Sudds 10-12-2004 10:12 PM

Harrington-Jones-Williams haven't done squat. Joey Harrington hasn't proved a thing other than the fact that throwing for 150 yards a game with 1 TD is all he can do. Jones has played 4 games, as has Williams. Williams, I agree, is a legitimate stud and will fall in the same line as AJ, Harrington still struggles with all of his weapons. Jones hasn't proved a thing. :BananaWav

Corrosion 10-13-2004 01:41 AM

Concerning DD's lack of production this season , you must take into account the fact he missed the vast majority of time in training camp and pre-season as he had last season , the difference being last season he didnt break the line-up until week 6 , in essence giving him 6 weeks to prepare for those last 10 games , equal to the roughly the length of training camp .
I expect him to get it together soon , and put up numbers as good or better than last season ..... lets just hope he can QUIT PUTTING THE BALL ON THE GROUND . take away those turn-overs against the Chargers and Lions the Texans are easily 4-1 instead of 2-3 .

Wolf 10-13-2004 07:39 AM

I like DD alot, but as far as triple threat with Carr and AJ.. (no disrespect to DD) but I don't see it. DD is solid, but when I think of triple threat. I see a Qb that can make throws from anywhere on the field (Carr can do it), a WR that can take it to paydirt anytime you give him space and can make the tough catches (AJ can do that). Last but not least a triple threat at RB, He can break one at any time and beat you. I don't see DD having that kinda "speed" to break one at anytime. DD is a solid football player that knows how to run north and south. I think people get too excited (talking in general here and not pointing a finger at anyone) about the 1000 yard mark with DD. Yes it is a good accomplishment. And for the Texans, looks even better being we never had a runningback before that has done that. A 1000 yards isn't what it used to be. :twocents:
