Default Zone Blocking Scheme...

I know that Domanic Davis has had his share of injuries during this early season, but has it looked apparent to anyone that he is having the most trouble running with this scheme? I heard a statement from Terrell Davis about the way running backs have to use the scheme and it appears the Dominic is actually better running behind a regular scheme. The zone scheme is for backs the don't have the great cutback running style, letting the "regular" backs pick a hole, and go up into it!(I.E. Wells doing well with the scheme) But, with a good cutback runner such as DD, this may be taking away lanes that open up normally when the regular scheme takes place or defenders breakdown. DD has found himself too many times running up the gut, rather than in the open and making people miss! This style will continue to work for Wells, a power runner, but DD will continue to be hurt by this, unless the Texans passing game continues to exploit defenses, forcing a 3 or 4 man front.
The Original, No Duplicating!!!
