I think that D.Davis is better than all the guys available.. except Shaun Alexander.. and I dont think we will be able to get him... not without paying more than we want too.
You think Davis is better than Edgerrin James?

Davis = Kevin Faulk. I never said last year that Davis was a franchise back. Never, because I saw his limitations: Lack of breakaway speed and lack of durability.

I am really not trying to point anything out because sometimes there were things out of his control but an intresting note: Davis has had 5 multi-TD games, we are 1-4 when he was two TDs in a game with the one win coming against the Falcons. Also, Davis has scored in 3 games this year, we have lost all 3.

His long run is still at 10 yards this year. On 121 carries.

Look at the bright side: Davis' yard per carry average was 2.8 going into the Denver game and is now a whopping *drum roll* 3.0...

What has he ever done to make you not trust his personality or think he could be a locker room cancer? Is it because he used to have the Ricky Williams dreadlocks? I cannot believe anyone would rather have Davis than James, just MHO.

How about when James skips camp and trains by himself down in Miami. There is something to be said for training with your teammates, instead of hanging out in Miami with your college buddies.

Our longest rush this year is 16 yards and that was by David Carr. Maybe we should blame our O-line for our lack of big gains, rather than our backs.

Just because I think Edgerrin James is better than Davis doesn't mean I have "given up on him" although I do not think Davis has what it takes to be a starting RB in the NFL.

At least he trains unlike some others in the NFL. I don't see how that would make him a cancer in the locker room, I have never heard any of his teammates talk bad about him.

You can never have enough quality RB's. Look at Minnesota, they have 4 on thier roster that could start for alot of teams and all have had significant time because of injuries.

Id rather get me one really good, big RB that doesnt hardly ever get injured.

I love DD.. I think he COULD be our every down back (when he isnt injured).. but that is the rub.. he keeps getting injured.. i just dont know that he can handle the beating that comes with being the RB in our system.

Maybe we could use a mix of cloning and get a new Earl Campbell. A guy like him in our offense would be scary.

If it came down to signing someone to a long term contract I'd go with Davis over Edge, since he is getting older as far as NFL years go RB's just don't handle the mileage like WR's or QB's if you notice there are no 40 yr old RB's playing in the NFL.
