Default DD no better than 2nd string RB for any other team

Domanick is a half-way decent fit for the texans. He can be fairly decent at time, but last week watching him run the football made me officially give up on him. 25 carries, 78 yards? That is horrible!!!!!!! A good running back in the NFL would have at least 125 yards with 25 carries. I want him out after this season.

Hard to understand Casserlys reasoning on giving DD a new contract at
the beginning of the season, especially since they just used a third round
pick on another RB in Aprils Draft. I mean we all know that DD is injury prone,
many scenarios could have had the OK-State rookie as #1 on the depth chart at year end. Then there's Hollings, probably the teams worst personnel
decision along with the PBurnt trade. Casserly has been at his very worst
when it comes to choosing and picking players at RB.

I don't claim to remember the numbers but I recall many people on this board throwing those numbers around back when he signed him and applauding Charlie Casserly for getting Davis "now" at a fairly reasonable price as opposed to after the 2005 season when he'd cost significantly more (presuming that he'd finally come up with that 1,300 - 1,500 season he's always just about to have.

Now it's all about the ridiculous money we paid Davis and how he'll be very hard to trade with that salary. I have to say I'm confused about this. Which one is it?

There are very few backs that would have 125 yards rushing AND 42 receiving with a TD. Jamal Lewis might have 42 yards receiving in his career, for instance (slightly exaggerated to make a point). If the team plays to DD's strengths, which is an all-purpose back, then he can be highly effective. I don't personally think he needs 25 carries a game. I'd much rather see him with 15 and maybe 5 receptions.

Yeah, he was a top 5 RB in some peoples eyes. He was suppose to have that 2000 yard total season the last couple years, too.

I can't talk though, I supported Tony Hollings

DD is okay but Wells deserves playing time.

We dont need Reggie Bush, we need a great O-line like any solid team has

Stellar analysis there. So a good, not even great RB averages 5 ypc? I guess LaDainian Tomlinson hasn't even been good except for 3 weeks of this season, Edge has only been good 3 weeks of this season, Willis McGahee has only been good 3 weeks of this season. FYI, only 1 RB in the NFL has averaged 5 or over this year. Pick a silly standard, get a silly conclusion.

Just a Bush pimp trying to justify taking him by dissing DD. Happens every year with one player or another. Last year was that can't miss, send him to the HOF in his rookie year safety. Can't seem to remember his name...Shaun something or another. Heard he got a job somewhere in DC.

I Feel your Pain If Fragile Fred Taylor Had 165 Yards On 22 Carries i would expect DD To At least Break 100 on 25 Carries but we are judged by mediocre standards now a days. and our Fans dont ask much from the players.

DD is a good RB, and i doubt hes 100% right now, but they should of started Wells in the Rams game, but i can see DD being a great RB in the next year or two give it some time, its only his 3rd season, hes young and we have alot of time, and how long was his contract for???

DD is one of the best, if not the best, value picks made by this franchise to date. But to me, DD will always be more of an Aaron Stecker-type (and we don't have a Deuce). We just use him as an every down back and to his credit and our good fortune, he has performed above expectations.

Probably because he started his career with two 1000 yard rushing seasons behind our poor line and won Rookie of the Year two years ago. He has been one of the better all-round backs in the league and would have been a restricted free agent at the end of the year so they wanted to lock him down early. He had 1776 total yards and 14 TDs last year in 15 games, pretty good numbers, especially for someone in our poor offensive system.

Hmmmm our running game suffers...........our passing game suffers.....hmm

there's got to be something in common......can't put my finger on it...........


Let's see, Our passing game suffers because our quarterback is lying down half the game?? why would he lay down after every other snap??.......
Then our running game..........guys keep getting hit before they reach the line of scrimmage......what's between the running back and the line of scrimmage??
What's supposed to allow the quarterback to take a 5 step drop, and remain standing??...........I can't think of it, but I think it's the same thing between the running back and the line of scrimmage.....it's some kind of a squiggle, or a line, or something........

I don't know, this football stuff is too hard for me.....my brain hurts...

Bush takes a hit and crumbles now. What happens when he gets thumped by someone like Roy Williams (Emmit Smith, TO, McNabb).

He rarely gets more than 15 carries/game.

White is a better Pro RB, not as flashy, but flashy in the NFL lands you on the trainer table.

Yeah cause Fragile Fred does it every game? DD isnt the type of back that will take a run 78 yrds for a TD. Does that make him a lower tier RB? No it just says hes not a homerun hitter. There are alot of elite Rb's who dont hit homeruns.
