Domanick Davis Needs to Step it Up!!!
 
C'mon baby high step it, move it, swing it!!!! Let's go baby, pick up the run game, hit the holes harder... I'm going to give Dom the benefit of the doubt and say he breaks 100 yds this week. Let's pull for our boy, all the energy of support will move it.... :excited:

:soldier:

The broncos defense is going up against the best zone blocking line in the league all this week :).. our running game is gonna have a hard time I think.

Thank God somebody finally not downing Davis !!! I think he is still a great back regardless of how the first half of the season has been going for him ! Once he has one big game and gets his confidence back he will be as dangerious as he was last season !

STEEL BLUE TEXANS 11-02-2004 01:28 PM

Domanick Davis is a great 3rd down back.

TexansTrueFan 11-02-2004 01:30 PM

nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnooooooooooooooooooooo he is a great every down back not a 3rd down back,,,you can see that in his ability !! Just having a rocky season so far the second half will be better for him !

texan279 11-02-2004 01:35 PM

I don't think he has the durability to be an every down back.

I dont want him to hit the hole harder. I want him to wait. He is trying to get to the hole before it opens up. His quick feet are killing him right now. Let the line open up some holes first...

Fred Taylor missed 24 of his first 64 games. DD has missed 3 of his first 23. I think he will prove to be more durable than Taylor. Will he be as productive is the question?

Dom is not in Fred Taylor's class. Dom is a nice little back, but FT is an explosive game changer.

Davis also missed part of the Carolina game last year, part of the Chiefs game this year, part of the Titans game this year, and parts of some others but most importantly he missed the Chiefs and Titans game in the second half where it is crunch time...

Taylor missed parts of the Texans game, but he still gets credit for a game played. I'm just comparing them in terms of games played early in their careers. That's the only way I can think of to compare durability.Is Fred Taylor durable? If he is, then DD's NFL record so far would show him to be super durable. I don't think durability is a major problem for DD. DD just has some nagging injuries. He hasn't missed significant time yet, like Taylor.

I hope he picks it up and has another good strong year, and hope he finishes with 1000+ yrds

Hervoyel 11-02-2004 04:15 PM

DD's had a bad year 3rd Coast. He's fumbled up a storm and he's been nicked up sitting on the bench watching Wells revive his career a little bit and I think he's suffering from a combination of the line not executing the zone blocking scheme and himself trying to "make it happen" too much. I've noticed that the last couple of times I've watched Davis run he's almost completely stopped cutting back and he's just charging into a spot where the blocking is headed.

That tells me that either there isn't anywhere to cut back to (the line's not creating openings in the manner they're supposed to be able to using this scheme) or he's not seeing it.

We know he was cutting back and finding the cracks in the first game as well as in his brief preseason time so he can do it. The line can also do it. For some reason they're just not doing it.

They will though. The longer they work at it the better they're going to get and Davis is going to settle back down and let it come to him instead of trying to force it.

Andre_Johnson80 11-02-2004 04:19 PM

Once this happens we will be able to control the clock and make it a waiting game for the other team.

Davis will have a big game Sunday BECAUSE the Broncos defense is practicing against the best zone blocking line in the league. They do it right. We will do it wrong and confuse them, lol, resulting in big rushing yardage. :hehe:

thats 68 carries a GAME...OUCH...

STEEL BLUE TEXANS 11-02-2004 06:44 PM

about 190 yds per game and DD achieves his goal of 2000 rushing yards.

Grid 11-02-2004 11:57 PM

i'll settle for 80-100 yards a game and the zone blocking working. DD can have 2000 yards next year.
