Rep Power: 10 done88 is a team player

Last year Davis earned the #1 back job next year. Therefore the competition will be who will back him up. That most likely will be Hollings. Hollings will get this year and one more in the shadow of Davis. Then there won't be enough touchs for both of them to stay on this team. I see the Texans trading Hollings in two years for a starting linebacker and a high draft pick. Davis is the future of the Texans for a long time. He already has repore with the fans. Great players often go to teams and never develop repore with the fans. Something about watching a player come into his own and show doubters that he is capable of starting in the NFL makes the fans feel like they were apart of it. That will take Davis a long way here in Houston. That is the whole reason JJ has kept his return duties. He is fun to watch and all the Texan fans like him. However he may never have the speed to be a premir return man in the NFL. He maybe in the top two in the NFL with quickness but he just does not have the speed. He reputation with the fans gave him the edge last year over Avion Black who had the speed but lacked the quickness.
