Default I dont think you will see DD fumble next week!

The reason? Because he knows that hollings will be replacing him if he does. I think this will be enought pressure to keep him from fumbling the ball at least for the next 3 games. I hope so

I would think that being the cause of one loss would be enough motivation. If causing two losses isn't enough motivation he has a more serious problem than fumbling the ball.

i think he should be benched no matter what next week, because i think even if tony hollings diddnt get that many yards it would be better than 14 points every week from DD fumbling, plus the chiefs run defense isnt very good. I say bench him for at lest one game then we see what Hollings can do.

Not only did he fumble twice, but he was the cause of Carr's interception. Instead of settling down in the spot Carr was throwing to, Davis for some reason decided to vacate that spot and move to a place that was blocked from Carr. Carr threw just as Davis moved.

the Texans offense revolves around DD for a reason, he is the #1 option, and you want to bench him

DD has 4 fumbles. 2 vs SD went for 2 TD's and 1 today was a TD, and the other was a missed FG. Of course it wouldn't be so bad if the defense could stop somebody.

Can we at least get our facts straight!? 1 of his fumbles vs SD went for a TD, a 45 yard drive. Today's led to a 79 yard drive for a td. SOME of this onus has to fall onto the defense. I mean it's like Portis' fumbles (3) which all have led to TDs and all were with the oppositions 20. I guess the Skins should bench him though.

I wouldn't put it all on DD.
I see no reason to think that we will look any different next week ..
why? same players not playing and same coaches not coaching.
What's gonna change? They are in a RUT until someone comes up with a plan to utilize the talent on the team and enforce and make changes. After all, they've been in this lukewarm state since Pittsburgh.

The difference I see between Hollings and DD is the way the two responded after they had a two fumble game. Hollings had a 2 fumble game and didnt fumble for the next 4 weeks (3 preseason game and 1 reg. season game). Davis had a two fumble game and then came out and had another 2 fumble game...

That is because Carr relies on Davis too much. Carr has a clock in his head that says "1 second has gone by, lets dump it to Davis now." The offense would open up if you took Davis out, IMO...

Isn't the knock on Hollings that he fumbles too much?

Only two of his fumbles have gone back for scores, the worst thing is that the fumbles dont allow us to score...

I guess the answer to that is no. Still I ask the question: Isn't the knock on hollings that he fumbles? I think it is, though I don't know much about him.
