If it was really that big of a deal, why was he not disciplined by the Colts or the NFL? Do you think the Colts and the NFL would ALLOW him to breach his contract and then come back like nothing happened?

The Colts did fine him $5,000 a day.

remember that before this season started the one worry on everyones mind was can davis make it through the season...that question has been answered with a huge no
RB's do suffer from the Sophmore blues more than anyone else it seems.

i'm confused on this whole blame the o-line bit...this is the same o-line we had last year the additions of wade at RT and wand at LT with pitts moving to LG...does anyone care to argue that this line is worse that the line last year?...cause if you do you clearly haven't been watching the same games i have...as for holes to run through why can Wells get a 100+ yds a game and DD can't?...Wells who we all critized after the first year as not being able to get it done has been doing just so this season...and is argueably our best runner on the team

ok 1st of all wells had 1 100 yrd game,,, not to impressive,,, second we might have the same line with a few additions but were not blocking the same way,,,yeah the zone blocking scheme ! Ok portis was great in Denver went to Washington his first game was good, and than he was in like a 6 week slump ! Davis's last performance against Denver wasnt so bad i say give him to the end of the year before ya make any evaluations, and the line can take partial blame for the running game, and 4 sacks given up against Denver thats some strange improvment !

Exactly, its a combination of the two, not only has the run blocking been bad, but hopefully they arent slipping back into the get david carr sacked 40 times a season mode. And i agree that from what i have seen wells has been more productive, but he hasnt been given as many chances as davis. Either way neither one of them is a true feature back, but i would rather see wells in there right now.

i dont know about wells in there, during the Broncos game i saw Davis running like he did last year, and he seemed more productive than he was earlier this season ! If he can just get his YPC up to around 4 yards now !

If our running game is clicking, I would like to see us stick to it a little more. After we got within 3 this last game we almost abandoned the whole running game all together.

My problem is the whole Davis can't hold up and keeps getting hurt deal....Does anybody else watch sports news, or maybe I'm the only one who's taken notice of the fact that a ton of running backs are getting hurt this season...Stephen Davis, Priest Holmes, Edge, Travis Henry, Deuce Staley, Fred Taylor, Cris Brown, Tatum Bell.......I could go on. We should feel lucky that he gets a little banged up and hasn't been seriously hurt. The guy comes in and runs for over 1000 yds in what 13 games? The next season we throw a completely different blocking scheme at the offensive line and they don't seem to execute...For those of you who say well it's dd and not the line, maybe you need to watch a few of the games a bit more.....I've seen dd getting hit in the backfield ten times more than last year and that's definitely not his fault that he's taking one step and getting wrapped up. My personal opinion after last year was if it ain't broke, don't fix it. I would like to see how things would be had we not changed up the scheme. For the person who said wells hasn't gotten any chances after his 100+ yard game....He had the whole first season to prove something and now if he can't straighten his arse up on special teams why would I want him running for me? Davis did have a problem with fumbling at the beginning of the year but shoulda, woulda, coulda it's over and we all need to move on. At some point and time every running back goes through a funk, it's just his came alot sooner than expected. Our running game isn't where we would like it to be but I feel we have three very capable backs...any one of them could produce for 100 yards in a game if the blocks are executed in the fashion their meant to be. Holy **** this is looking like an editorial. Well just wanted to put my two cents in. I like dd, wells and hollings but the offensive line does need to be looked at before we point our fingers at the running backs, whether it be any one of them.

Default on Dom and being injured

doug,

Question: Ever work with some who is a good person and works well , but always has something going on (legitimately) from kids with the flu, car problems, etc, frustrating as heck...part dependability in sports is the ability to line-up and play at close enough to full strength to do your job...Unfortunately, Davis has all or portions of at least 3 if not 4 regular season games and has really looked healthy enough to perform at a top level maybe 2 of the remaining games. yeah, staying healthy in the NFL for a RB is tough, but it is Davis job to do so.

That makes no sense to me. Maybe I'm an *****.....Please emphasize. What I got out of it was it's Davis' job to stay healthy? Let me know if I'm getting it before I comment any further.

Yeah, pretty much. It's a part of the deal. He is not a solid big time running back to begin with and on top of that he can't stay on the field.

Stephen Davis had 1500 yards last year. Holmes is a TD machine. Edge has led the league in rushhing. Staley has led his team to one of the best records in football. Fred Taylor has made 30 consecutive starts and averages 5 yards a carry. Chris Brown leads the league in runs over 20.

Davis playing hurt, doesnt help the team. He has played hurt most of the season and is averaging 3 yards a carry. Not effective...

I did not even mean imply that it is really fair, but part of judging a RB is his ability to stay healthy even though a good portion of injuries bad luck/not the RBs fault.
