I really dont want Hollings to catch better because I feel that Davis' ability to catch hinders the offense. If Davis couldnt catch, do you think that the Texans would have used the 11 receptions Davis got today and gone deep a couple of times with them??? And the keyword that you used when describing the fumbling problems was had and has. Even though I dont think that you can say had with Hollings, but I dont think it is as much of a problem...

And the offensive line last year was a middle of the pack o-line and wasnt that bad...

If Davis couldn't catch, Carr would've been sacked about 8 times today, because heaven knows he wasn't looking downfield.

I see nothing to lose by starting Hollings next week. We're not favored, and KC will come out ready to kill us after what's been going on up there. What's the concern--he'll fumble a lot? Like that's not already happening? Start him, give him the first quarter to see what he can do, and if it's not working, work Davis back into the game. No big deal for an 0-2 team on the road.

So you're saying Hollings can't catch and run. What about pass blocking? Could he do that? I think this team really needs an RB right now that can pass block.

On SportsCenter there was a nice piece in "Inside the Huddle" about the fumbling problems that Deshaun Foster of the Carolina Panthers had during the preseason, and what he's done to correct it. I bring it up because the problem that Foster had was very similar to the one that DD has. It's not so much holding onto the ball with two hands in traffic (although that too would help), but he'd (Foster) would let the ball stray from his body while trying to make extra yards. It wasn't as if he held the ball out intentionally, but would let it slip a few inches further out than he usually would. What he did to correct the problem was focus on cradling the ball close to his body as he's supposed to do while trying for those extra yards. I'm wondering if that is what DD has seen in his tapes, and is trying to correct it as Foster did. I just hope he'll be able to correct it by the KC game.

I'd say that's very possible.

I'm usually the kinda guy who says when players are in a slump like DD is, they should just play through it. Yeah, two games is pretty big and a third would be a gamble...but from a player's perspective, if he rides the pine he's not gonna get his feel back. Might be good to play Hollings a bit and gradually work DD back in. I dunno, I'm not a doctor.

One of the fumbles I saw in the Chargers game he was running to the left, had the ball in his left arm, and it was a ways from his body. When the defenders got close, he didn't bring it in or put 2 hands on it. From what I remember, the defenders weren't even going for the ball, just for the tackle, and the ball popped out. Davis said in an article in the Chronicle, he watched the tapes, and sees what he is doing wrong, and will work on the problem. I think if Hollings can play this weekend, they should split RB duties 50/50 if possible.
