Default Andre Davis td return

I just rewatched the game, and I still can't believe Andre didn't step out of bounds on his td return.

I counted 9 full speed, running steps along the sideline, eight of which were, by my count, less than 3-6 inches away from the paint on the sideline.

A little different than most returns, but the end result was huge in the outcome of the game IMO.

Great job Andre!

I thought they were going to review and overturn it, but when I saw the replay there was nothing for me to say other than it was a really nice return. AD has very deceiving speed.

Can he return punts, too? And let's get him more involved in the offense. He was almost spectacular when AJ was out and now he struggles to see the field.

Isn't Davis a UFA this year? If so, I hope we can hang on to him.

Great job Andre!
My seat is in the endzone at the end where the run started I was looking right down the line and immediately said "that's coming back to the 25 yard line". My eyes deceived me, because he brilliantly avoided touching the line. A fine run.

He ran it like an off tackle run. He waited and then hit the corner. That was a wierd, but awsome, return.

Zac Diles chipped his man just enough for AD to make it around the outside. After that he was not going to be caught. Very nice return at the perfect time.

I think just queitly Davis has been an extremely valuable and value for money FA addition, a real win for the front office, I too hope he stays around another couple of years.

And once he got by the Bucs he slowed down and was not running full speed. Amazing, he ran just fast enough to keep the guy from catching him from behind. So think about it, a mostly hurt Mathis or a guy like Davis? Easy one.

I agree. Not sure why he is not our #2 WR though. I thought AD on one side and AJ on the other would be a potent combination.

I don't see why not. IIRC, he comes pretty cheap. Unless he's injury riddled this off-season, I'd expect him to be here. Hopefully they've found the cause for his constant injuries.

Nothing better than a cheap TD machine.

BTW, does anyone know what they eventually found? Last I'd heard it was a possible clot. Did I miss the final diagnosis?

Really hard to set an order between Walter and Davis given their time in the various formations. Prime reason though is Walter has a better feel for finding holes in coverage and making chain moving catches.

I don't think in Kubiak's system he has a "number 1" through "number 4" system. I think he has a wide left (AJ), wide right (AD), and slot (KW). In a 1, 2, 3 system, with an injury to #1 (AJ), you'd have #2 (KW) move up to #1 and #3 move to #2, and so on. Instead, what we saw was Jacoby Jones moving to wide left (until HIS injury) to replace AJ while AD and KW stayed in their respective positions. Once JJ went down, though, there was no choice but to shift people around.

Mathis healthy is basically guaranteed to get 3 TDs a season.

Only 2 TDs for 2005 because he was a rook.

Hell, let them alternate kickoffs..

+ OD/Walter as slot (usually)
+ Walter (sometimes) outside (he's made some great sideline catches)
