Default The "Big Boys" get their legs ...

Now that the “Big Boys” of the 2004 draft (going into the draft, it was generally accepted that the top RBs were Steven Jackson and Kevin Jones) have gotten their legs under them, I thought it would be interesting to see how they stack up against a few other young backs, particularly Domanick Davis.

In addition, from time to time posters complain that the Texans aren’t fairly treated by the media. The implication of this is that some players are hyped more than a Texan player, even if their numbers don’t match those of the Texan player.

In the last 3 starts …

In comparing the four RBs, Domanick Davis is a two time 1,000 yard rusher and Rookie of the Year. Only Kevin Jones appears capable of matching his 1,000 rushing season this year.

Domanick Davis has the second best rushing average over the last three game (4.8) trailing Steven Jackson (5.2), but leading both Kevin Jones (4.6) and Julius Jones (3.2).

Domanick Davis has also been the most productive of four in the last three games with 507 combined rushing and receiving yards. Kevin Jones has 401 combined yards, Steven Jackson has 372 combined yards and Julius Jones has 264 yards.

Domanick Davis also has 3 rushing touchdowns over the last three games, the same as Steven Jackson. Kevin Jones and Julius Jones only have 1.

Domanick Davis has been a productive back for the Texans, with over 3,000 combined yards (2,108 rushing and 905 receiving yards) and 21 touchdowns. It will be interesting to see how the Texans approach the RB position in the offseason.

personally i think he has proved to this team and the organization that he can be our starting running back of the future, and i would be really suprised if he came into next season not the starter ! He has talent and was a steal in the draft !

Cleveland has given up 145.2 yards rushing per game, 4.3 ypc and 21 rushing TD's this year (tied with San Fran for worst in the league)--any guesses on the game plan for this week?

One big question I have is how they will use Hollings, if at all. Should they get a good look at Hollings and not push Davis? Is Hollings healthy (I believe he saw ST time against the Jags)?

i guess that was taken out of context, when he said 5-10 touches, he meant touches as in 5-10 times he would give high fives to other players on the bench.
