Default Davis says he can do 2000 yards

DD said he can rush for 2000 yards this season. He agrees it is a lofty goal. He said if he doesn't make it, he will be close. What do you think?

It is good that he sets his goals high. He also knows he probably won't get that, so he says he will be close. As long as he has more than 1400 yards he is almost guaranteed a hefty contract.

I,m thinking some where along the lines of 1500-1700 only because we are not sure how long it will take our o line to pick up the new blocking scheme

The amount of yards he gets is how well he stays healthy. If he stays I can see him pushing 1700+ yards, if he has the little nagging injuries like last year, 1200+ yards.

Domanick is a bigtime playmaker and if he set his goal that high, i think he knows he can do it. Contrary to CAP1's statment,"He also knows he probably won't get that." thats probably untrue. I think with a lot of help from his offensive line and some help from Moran Norris, he could do it. Especially now that the texans are introducing that new offensive line blocking scheme. From what i hear, its similar to the blocking schemes of the Denver Broncos that was designed to get blockers into the secondary to spring the back for large gains. if he could do what he did last year, with this type of rush offense designed for him, hes gonna wreck!

I think it depends also on how much they use Hollings. If Hollings is back to his old speed we may see him in on 10-15 plays a game. That will definitely cut into D.D.'s stats. I expect D.D. to get around 1200-1400 yards.

Wink Start with 200+ on the Bolts...

For a rookie, he sure shredded some pretty good defenses last year, there is no doubt that he can be one of the top 5 RBs in the NFL. Capers was talking about much of last year's team being rookies, and guys playing double the season that they did in school, the end of the year takes it's toll.
So with, more time and conditioning under their belts, improvement is inevitable.
As far as injuries, with experience and training players learn how to keep from getting hurt,
hopefully that's the case with 37DoubleD.

The Logic is simple.

The Broncos trade up to have a CHOICE between Bell and Jones.

They took Bell.

I think we are all entitled to form an opinion about the Broncos abilities to evaluate RB talent. I believe HUGE injected Portis into this discussion.

When the Cowboys used their second pick, they had NO CHOICE. Bell was gone.
So we all agree that Denver had Bell rated above Jones. Where we disagree is that this doesn't mean that if one team has one player rated above the other (Denver with Bell over Jones), it automatically means Dallas had him rated higher as well.

A better example than the Wilfork **** is Deangelo Hall and Dunta Robinson. Did the Texans "settle" for Robinson because Hall was taken a couple of picks before? If not, how do you know this?

And no, I wasn't the one that injected Portis into this discussion. Read on...

If DD gets 2000 yards, that means he had 350+ carries. I'd kinda like to see him have a nice long career and that's certainly not the best way to approach it for a guy whose durability may be an issue.

His goals should look like this IMO (guess the RB):

Yds Carries Avg TD Long
1591 290 .....5.5 14 65
That's aj's post...not mine. I merely answered his question "(guess the RB)".

Quote:
I only suggest that the Cowboys MAY have wanted the option to draft Bell. The option the Broncos had when they traded in front of them. We will never know for sure.
They had the option of drafting any RB in the draft (none were taken by the time Dallas was on the clock in the first round). They chose to trade down. Even after trading down, they still had the option of Greg Jones, Michael Turner, Mewelde Moore, etc. And of all those players, Julius Jones was the only one that was invited to Dallas before the draft (this we know as fact).

Quote:
Teaching who? Mistril48 merely suggested that the Cowboys were looking at Bell based on a logical progression. You were just making up fantasy as fact. Isn't there a difference there somewhere?
There would be a difference if there was a "logical progression".

Fair enough, but you did ask if we "saw your point". It was lost on me, but then again, I'm being a bit of a homer here.

I just didn't see how you can "teach a lesson" by taking a comment that was admittedly speculation and make a "factual statement" about Wilfork that you conceded was fantasy only after someone else called you on it.

Had it been known that it was fantasy when I orginally made it, the point (don't make baseless statements you can't back up) would not have gotten across.

I understand (for the most part).

I also respect you a great deal from the original mb (you always kept your banter above the bs) so I will give you your due.

To me, it was something akin to using irony as a literary technique. It was intended to make the reader think and interpret. I know that's a novel concept on these boards but it seemed like a nice change of pace from the usual my Dad can beat up your Dad stuff...

for the amount of carries you need to get 2000 yds its not worth it!!!
it recks your carrer!! a RB should only get 300 carries a year if you want him to stay healthy and have a long carrer but teams dont have this luxury givin the short amount of talent at the position.
