I don't think anyone here is knocking DD, but there is definately an attempt to keep his accomplishments in perspective. He did a tremendous job in carrying the load last year, and Hollings will only help alleviate that load this year. Is Hollings or Davis worthy of such high praise early on? No, but being its a Texans message board a bit of 'homerism' clouds all of our perspectives. People are no doubt excited by Hollings potential when watching him perform in college, and people are no doubt excited given Davis performance last season. Let's not be hasty and annoint either of them as a "Elite" running back yet. The preseason will be a good determining factor for Hollings, and if he performs well then the regular season as well. When you have two viable options at any position its natural for their to be competition over who deserves the top spot. All in all I think "Nice problem to have" is the quote that best sums it up.
PS By 'homerism' I didn't mean this.
