Take 2002's running game and between the dominating Jonathan Wells (529 yards on 197 attempts) and the elusive James Allen (519 yards on 155 carries) and you are in the neighborhood of Domanick Davis "breakout" season (1031 yards on 238 carries).

Yes they took more carries to get there and yes they lacked his recieving ability but when we're talking about getting yards on the ground Domanick Davis has proven to be at best a very average runningback.

Hey in 2000 Allen did 1120 by himself. Mack was able to nearly equal Davis' 4.3 yards a carry average from last season when he ran for 877 yards in 2001 with Jacksonville.

Davis has admittedly had the most "success" (hard as it might be to apply that word to any runningback that's taken the field for us) but lets not go getting all that excited about it just yet. He's the best of a backfield that's featured 4th round rookies, journeymen, want to be's, and ghosts (Hollings must be a ghost, he's invisible right?).

We need a back and we need to figure out why the offensive line is incapable of making the zone blocking scheme work. If that can't be fixed we need to go back to what we were doing last season.
