Default Dom Davis/Williams plans comeback in 2007

Article on espn.com pretty much states it all.

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=2716848

With DDW coming back, Dayne having a breakout year, and with Taylor, Lundy, and Gado in the wings seems we have a crowded RB situation. A nice problem to have I suppose, but who do we keep?

With all things being perfect, I'd like to see a DDW/Dayne combo with Taylor in the wings. I liked Taylor a little more than Lundy and Gado didn't show me much.

Any comments?

Gone:

Gado
Lundy
Jamel Cook

If Davis is truly healthy...and I mean he is saying that he is 100% at the time of the draft...then I don't draft Adrian Peterson. But we had better bring in a viable free agent running back who is better than Taylor and Dayne because if DD can't go, we don't want to be in the same situation next year.

Taylor hurts you in the pass game because he is a little light in the pants to stay in and block.

Would love to see Turner in here from San Diego if DD cannot go too.

A healhy DD
Adrian Peterson
Turner

Any of those scenarios and I'm happy with our RB situation.

Michael Turner gets my vote. He'd be a great asset. I think he's a RFA?

It is incouraging to hear him sound like he want's to play. Some of his earlier comments made it sound like he was fine if he never played again.

Kubiaks monday press conference sorta hinted this, he mentioned something about not wanting to be dependant on injured players getting better.

You're right......I liked what I heard him say myself. It sounds like DW has some good things going on in his life right now and has from what I read, established his family as a top priority in his life. It is good to hear this about him and makes me hopeful he will be able to return. "That is something I would not have said when the season began this past year".

yes. chargers can slap a 1st round or 1st and 3rd round tender on him. no way a team in the top half of the draft touches that.

So......maybe the Texans are going to take a shot at Clinton Portis?

Taylor is 5'11", 220 lbs....

That's not all that "light in the pants"...

I have doubts about Davis/Williams ever seeing the field again.

This is the first good problem the texans have had. Too much talent at one position...

IMO you treat Dom like a rookie FA that came on to the squad because this is a new scheme, and new staff. Sure you want him hear but you also want a better team and you need to make sure that if DW is not okay, you aren't going to miss a step.

With us being #8, DW coming back, Ron Dayne playing hard, you can pretty much kiss a RB in round 1 goodbye.

Good for him. I hope he makes it back, but I think you have to draft like he won't.

1st - Dayne vs Taylor
(Both have shown the ability to thrive in this offensive system. Should be an interesting battle during this off-season)

2nd - Loser of The Battle (Dayne vs Taylor)
(Whoever doesnt win this battle should still be in the mix in my opinion Dayne has great strength and vision, Taylor has great speed and good vision)

3rd - Domanick Davis-Williams
(Coming off an injury that side-lined him for the year he is obvious not ready to carry the full load again. So we'll have to bring him back slowly but when this time away I'm not sure if he'll end up more than a relief back but I could be wrong)

If Dom B Free comes back we need to use him as a 3rd down back only since he isn't durable. No way I'd make him a feature back at this point in his career and with his history.

I'd rather have Lundy or Gado be the third back....

DD has missed over a year of football....It was reported that his knee was bone on bone....DD is in prove yourself mode...I seriously doubt he walks in as the third back, if he is even on the roster period....

IMO, That sure is alot of money tied up in a 3rd down back. Personally, I'd get rid of him even if he was able to come back.

talent is talent....something we don't have enough of around here and he is the most talened back we have on the roster if healthy. If he can play, I play him, but I don't over use him.
