Default Upon further review - DD/DW

Just curious on what folks thoughts on DD/DW are now that he's done. I'm assuming that he's not going to sign anywhere else and that his career is finished.

On one hand, he's the all time leading rusher for the franchise and one of very few bright spots in the Texans' early seasons. Being an ex-LSU player on raises his stock in my book.

On the other hand, I get the impression from some of the message board posts that some disagree with how he handled his knee injury at the end.

What say ye?

Default Re: Upon further review - DD/DW

I agree. Watching the games, DD did a lot of workhorsing for the Texans. He was a running, pass-catching machine and David Carr's dump-off if AJ wasn't available. I am glad he came here, and I think the Texans definitely got a good deal out of him. I think he was a fifth-rounder.

On the other hand, his leaving left a bad taste. For a run-first offense, he really threw the Texans under the bus by not being able to play last year. But is he 100% to blame for how it was handled? More knowledgeable people than I have that information. I am content to think of the guy who was the Texans' first memorable running back.

Default Re: Upon further review - DD/DW

He's one of my favorite players. I think he had a lot of potential and didn't get the chance to really exploit it.

I think he really thought he was going to be able to come back. I don't think he was trying to blow sunshine. I heard a lot of people bagging on him about not sucking it up and playing but there are some things that you just can't play through.

I'm really sad that he's not going to be a part of the team when we start winning and that he's not going to be able to share in that.

I think he was a bright spot in the Texans brief history, and he probably thought he could make it back. That is the competitor in him. If there is any blame to be placed for the DD situation last year, it belongs to people who should have been able to step back and evaluate what they were seeing.

To expect a fairly young player to look at himself objectively might be too much to ask. I say that from a viewpoint of thinking of the players as people first and athletes second. They aren't unemotional cogs in a football machine.

DD was a great 3rd down back that got thrust into a full time starting job and did well. The only problem was he just wasn't built to carry the load, and Capers ran him into the ground until his body quit.

My view of him will always be off, because he cost us my boy Reggie last year, but he was a great player.

I'm happy for double DD that he got that big, sweet new contract at the beginning of his last season, because if they'd have waited until the season was over he might not have got rewarded like he did for what was an excellent NFL career up to that point. Dumb-ass move by Casserly cap-wise, but good deal for double DD.
I hope he manages his money well and doesn't waste it, let it slip thru his fingers, make a lot of foolish financial decisions like a lot of other pro jocks do. And I hope that knee doesnt give him too much trouble later in life.

I hope DDW makes a lot of good financial decisions like a lot of other pro jocks do.

DDW got paid by a fool, CC, who made a lot of bad financial decisions much like a lot of other GM's do.

And they say they've learned by that by not planning and expecting injured players to come back when making draft and free agent decisions.

I thought that whole situation last year was mishandled. With the description of his injury, it never sounded like physically he could come back, but there was a lot of whispering by the Texans that he could play if he could man up through the pain. Last year sounded more like wishing and hoping: "Gee, we didn't draft Reggie, let's trash DD and Mathis for being injured"--both injuries ones that the Texans had a hard time diagnosing because of the nature of the injuries.

I know that you don't want a team of wusses, where every injury derails them. But if someone has a legit injury, it's not cool to imply that if they just sucked it up, it would all be better.

That pretty much sums it up. Domanick was drafted as a 3rd down RB/return specialist. Then, Capers & Palmer wore out a guy who was one of the best 3rd down backs in the league trying to save a QB who couldn't be saved here.

Casserly gets a lot of blame around here for the failures of this organization (and deservedly so). But, he did realize that Domanick was being run in the ground, and drafted Morency in '05 to take the pressure off. Of course, Capers and Pendry refused to use the rookie until they had no choice. Careers of good players can be ruined with a dysfunctional organization

This line could be used for so many players it really makes you wonder where the Texans would be if they developed and used what talent they had a little more wisely through the years.

It's nice to be turning that particular corner.

Default Re: Upon further review - DD/DW

I thought DD was doing great. I Know here I go everything is Carr's fault. If Carr would have not overused DD maybe he would still be playing. Carr hands off to DD, Carr throws a shot pass to DD and Carr throws a screen to DD. DD probally touched the ball at least 60 % of the plays.

My only problem with DD was I couldn't understand why he never was on the sideline at all last year. I know he didn't have to but, you're getting paid millions of dollars from the Texans at least show your face once in a while.

So good luck DD in whatever you do and I hope your knee gets better at least a normal citizen.

So they have heard you can't and in the past they have proved they could. To admit they can't, is something that is unknown to them.
Not taking anything away from DDW, because I thought he was nails for us when he was on the field, it was/would have been a sound tactical choice for them to let Davis score on that play as we could have run the clock out in that situation. It doesn't take anything away from Davis. I'm glad he played for us and I hope that whoever comes in does as well as he did.

While I am sure that you recognize haters as birds of a feather, you've got to let it go and quit living in the past, man. It's bad for your blood pressure, not to mention your mental outlook on life. But perhaps old habits die hard, and some dogs can't learn new tricks.

Careful...careful...you might recognize this post as sarcasm. So watch out!

As an athlete (though a crappy one ) that had his career ended by a knee injury, I have a ton of sympathy for DD

But, I am still pissed that he was "Good to go" before the draft, but as soon as Bush wasn't comming to town, he was too injured to play. It was probably the Doc's fault, not DD.

Default Re: Upon further review - DD/DW

My take on DD has always been this... Casserly and Capers drafted DD to be a third down back and to return some kicks. Because of their ineptatude at finding someone to be the everydown back DD was forced into that situation and performed rather well... C & C thought they had gotten and easy ride with DD and figured they didn't need to address that situation and instead rewarded DD with a big contract. I don't blame DD for that. I would have considered that back-pay..... For his service, I thank him and wish him the best in whatever he does.

Problem is, they knew when he was drafted that he had a knee issue. Something that would NOT get better - but could only get worse and they continued to ignore that position...

Last year was a debacle, but I think I have to agree with Apple here and say that it probably was Docs fault by overstating the re-hab or not being forthright with the progress.. Either that or he is just a complete dumbass that doesnt need to practice anymore.

DD was taken in the 4th round in 2003. Here is a list of the RBs taken ahead of him, in order:

Willis McGahee
Larry Johnson
Musa Smith
BJ Askew
Chris Brown
Justin Fargas
Artose Pinner

Of those, only LJ clearly outperformed DD.

DD had, in his three years, 3195 RuYds, 4.1 YPC, 23 RuTD, 154 rec., 1276 RecYds, and 5 RecTDs.

McGahee did not play his first year, and has played the last three years running. He has 3365 RuYds, 3.9 YPC, 24 RuTDs, 68 rec., 503 RecYds, and 0 RecTDs.

Chris Brown has, for his career, 2295 RuYds, 4.2 YPC, 11 RuTDs, 55 rec., 539 RecYds, and 2 RecTDs.

The rest weren't even worth noting, obviously. Now, I know stats don't tell the whole story, but at the end of the day, production on the field matters more than spec. That is the argument many of you keep trotting out there with regard to Mario. Well, DD didn't measure up to anyone's spec for a good RB, yet he produced. And he did it in a poor offense, with a bad QB, poor coaching, while handling more of the offensive load than any other offensive player.

He broke down, and for that reason, you have to like McGahee and even Chris Brown better than him overall, but for production on a per-touch basis, no one but LJ outclassed him, from the group he was drafted with. Personally, I like DD because he overcame athletic shortcomings and produced. I like him because, despite the fact that he wasn't the fastest, biggest, quickest, <insert superlative here> RB, he still produced. Would I have rather had LT, or the next Earl Campbell? Of course! But DD did a job, and he did it well. I say thank you to him, and I wish him luck in the future.

That was one of the interesting aspects of the Texans' use of Davis, and one of the reasons I think the guy deserves respect from the front office and his peers. If he wasn't running the ball, he was catching the ball. He had a LOT of reception yardage while he was here.

It begs the comparison of Davis to Green, since like Davis, Green is also a receiving running back. I think the difference will be that Kubiak knows better than to run out Green on every play -- Green will be used wiser.
