No, that was AJ leading in yards after catch.

When Davis is playing really well he breaks some tackles. When he is not playing at his best he goes down the first time he is touched. And considering how easy it is for him to get "nicked up" he is rarely playing at his best.

As far as Ronnie Brown being a backup at Auburn just like Davis was a backup at LSU, consider who they were backing up. Brown would have been the starter if he had played at LSU the same time as Davis, while Davis would never have seen the field if he was at Auburn this year.

Back to the original point of this thread, I think Davis will get to a thousand yards as long as he doesn't catch a cold or get a paper cut. If either of those happen he might need to be out on injured reserve.
