Default Hey DD...thanks and keep it up big guy

Just in case DD or someone that knows him is checking the MB these days, I thought I would give a shout out that there are fans that don't think of him as just "ok and servicable" but rather that he is one hell of a football player, we are lucky to have him on our team and a guy that is playing his guts out and giving us something to enjoy watching this year. Keep running it bigun...a bunch of us are big fans!.

P.S. Lopez is an ***** DD so don't give him a single thought.

Well being from Louisiana, Guess I'm prejudiced, but got to give profs to my LSU man, Double D! He has done a great job behind a mediocre line. Just wish he could pick up the blitz a little better.

Good Job Double D !!!!!!!!

He knows but it still hurt his pride somewhat. Look at what Buffalo Bills did with Travis Henry. They took Willis Magehee even though Henry 1000 yards seasons. BUT DD IS A CLASS ACT and will not make a scene like Henry did . DD is a better teamer and we will benefit from having both DD and Bush on the same team.

it's a good thing that willis acted professionally in buffalo ... oh wait, now he wants out of his situation and wants to go to florida. seriously, i'm thankful that DD is such a stand-up guy.

in the words of ron burgundy, stay classy DD!

Dom can run Double D left on first down.
Run Bush right on second down.
Carr under or over throws AJ on third down. (or Bradford drops a pass)
Stanley punts on fourth down.

Still don't think that Bush is the way to go, should go LT.
Even if we do draft Bush it wont amount to a hill of beans if we dont hire a offensive minded coach whos not afraid to attack. Without Bush we should still be potent enough to win. I am tired of seeing the same ole playing not to lose.

If we were loaded with talent, then your statement would be correct. But since the Texans have so many other needs, it would be absolutely insane for the team to have both DD and Bush on the same team.

He as been the gright constant spot in our offense and hope he remains that way for the next several years. I think we have other needs than Bush in the draft, DD can stay in my book.

Thats great, 1600 yds total yards. DD had 1770 yds from scrimage last year!!! DD is a top level RB, like it or not, Bush is not gonna supplant his production to the point that we go from 1-15 to 10-6. We have WAY bigger needs to fill:brickwall

Thanks...the point of my post was to YELL OUT to DD that Lopez does not speak for the feelings of Houston in general nor the fan base in particular and that many Houston fans have noticed and appreciated his performance even if it is coming in the middle of the worst season we will ever have to endure. Go Texans...the turnaround has already begun!

Dominic - It's been three great years. Thanks, man, and I hope we see more. Not trying to imply anything about other teammembers, but it's good to see the steady improvement.
