The reason he gets no carries is because he gets no yards! I remeber multiple games this year when he averages less then 2 yds a carry. I relly dont think that a team with Kurt Warner and Josh McCowan at Qb wants to be extreamly pass oriented?

Arrington has a hard time breaking tackles...he is an open field runner. Breaking tackles is a more important skill than being an open field runner for running backs. There is less room in the NFL....everyone has speed. In College the open field runner type guys always look better in College than they do in the NFL.

Which is one of the reasons Bush scares me.

Default DD could be solid

Davis be a good running back but he isn't putting up huge numbers because of a number of reasons. Reason number one is the run blocking scheme of the Texans. They hardly ever block down or double anyone to open up any holes, plus they very rarely run in situations that are solid to run in such as second and long when you can pick up 8 or 10 yards on a draw play... secondly the texans pass blocking doesn't allow carr enough time to throw the deep ball. The safeties then can play up putting 8 or 9 in the box throughout the game. Thirdly Davis was a fourth round selection as an ALL-PURPOSE BACK... DD is not a 25 or 30 carry a game guy.. bring in my boy Reggie Bush and a Free Agent Offensive Linemen along with a new coaching staff with a different scheme and the Texans are going to be playoff bound in 3 years

So what you are saying is that you wouldnt mind trading DD for Fragile Fred thats what it sounds like.

If you're referring to Arrington, go back and look at his September and October stats. Perhaps he's improving, but I know he's had a couple long runs to buff his totals, when it's the every down work that's making him look bad. Vinny summed it up rather well, actually. I watched a video of Arrington before the draft and came away thinking "Wow, he never got hit! Wonder how that's going to translate to the NFL?" Of course, explaining that to anyone was rather unproductive.

I have said this many times and will say it again...

DD is NOT a franchise back and never will be. He doesnt have the qualities it takes to become one, ever...............

I disagree, when healthy he looks and runs like a young Priest Holmes and with Wells backing him up (who looks like a young Bettis) we are set at RB. We need O-line, Linebackers, and a secondary be it safety or another Cornerback.

Ive seen a ton of fast guys come out of college and do nothing. can you say 85% of Nebraska RBs??

And I am not sold on Reggie Bush being tough and being able to take a NFL hit.

Dont draft Bush, Trade down and fill in the holes Casserly and Capers has put us in.
