Default Texans RB vs. Vikings.

Who gets the nod?

This is really a tough decision. Wells played great. And deserves more time. But I think you have to go back to the starter in Davis. There is nothing wrong with having a good backup.

Ill take Davis to start. With Hollings 2nd, and Wells 3rd, like the begining of the year.

Hollings will switch up the speed. And Wells will come in if Davis get hurts, or they need 1 or 2 tgough yards.

As a fan, I would like to see Wells get the start. JMO.

Well, if it's a running back by committee approach like Capers said it would be, then I guess it doesn't matter who gets the start. Right?

Right. I posted this before I read the thread about RBBC. I happen to like the approach. I think Davis should get most of the plays though. But not as many as he got when he started.

If this is the way it is, perhaps we should look at Cedric Benson in the draft next year.

I am thinking that Benson would be heavily persued by our team in the draft. Lets just support the guys we have now as they aren't so bad themselves. Actually I look for DDavis to have an awesome game today.

Start Hollings!! Wells did get a buck-0-five last Sunday, but alot of that can be attributed to our front line. Who's to say Davis / Hollings wouldn't have got more?

We spent a 2nd round pick on him (the highest we've taken and a running back thus far), so it's not an unreasonable move to start him 2 years removed from his knee injury against an inferior defense.

Granted, Wells is the superior pass blocker among the 3, but he does not give you that big run speed that Hollings does. I think it's time we see what Hollings can do with a healthy, motivated line / quarterback.

I've given Wells hell for the last 2 years, but he looked pretty damn good against Oakland. That being said, if DD is COMPLETELY HEALTHY, he gets the start. If not, Wells should get the start and DD should sit. If DD says he is 90%, he sits unless he is absolutely needed. In a perfect world, I would want DD to sit out until he is 100%, but as we all know, nothing is perfect. Honestly, I would hate to see DD go out there too soon and end up on the DL for the year.
