Davis tries to dance and find the right hold instead of making the one cut and heading up the field.
Davis averaged 3 yards per carry, and he got a majority of his carries when the Colts were in prevent. I dont consider that a good day...
No, it wasn't a good day, but I do think the sorry performance is more on the line than on Davis. This line let Carr and Davis get killed yesterday. Even with a fullback lead-blocking, this team couldn't pry open a hole at the line on 3rd-and-short. That is pathetic.
I'm prepared to give DD the rest of the year as a starter to see if he continues to improve. If he doesn't, then let's go after someone else. Right now, we don't have anyone else as a RB who should be a starter over Davis.
