Comparing Davis to Emmitt Smith is a joke.

Smith would play in pain and play well. Davis doesn't.

Smith would rarely be tackled by the first man to touch him. Davis is.

Not sure where I heard it, but supposidly the taller RBs are MORE suseptible to injury because they run more upright and don't get their pads as low. One of the criteria for durability is weight and DD is plenty heavy and muceled at 220+. Just seems to have had a string of bad luck. Some players are like that, never seem to catch a break. Fred Taylor is one that comes to mind.

Our run blocking is much better than our pass blocking, just because an O line is bad in pass blocking doesn't mean it is bad in run blocking also and vice versa, DD had some big games in the last half of the season and it was because the zone blocking came together. Look at what Clinton Portis did in Denver then look at what he did for Washington last season. Also look at what the other Denver RB's have done in the last couple of seasons, it has all been a product of the zone blocking.

wow, davis hits a 'benchmark' for RB's in the NFL two years in a row (1000 yds+) while our o-line is garnering the rep of stunting david carr's growth as a QB...

nice to see you back in the 'thread that won't die' steel blue. i thought you quietly bowed out a few pages back after *cough*http://www.houstontexans.com/fan_zon...&page=12&pp=20 *cough* some convincing facts where presented

Ummm Dom has said he wants us to have an offense like the Steelers', not some BS dump it off to DD every down offense, like you suggested...Opposing defenses couldn't care less about Domanick Davis...On several occasions, opposing defenses focused on stopping AJ, and letting DD get all of his little dump-offs, and every team that shut AJ down beat us last year...

He is good but this year he will have no excuses for subpar performances.

Even if he gains a 1000 yards and scores 8 TD's if he doesnt alter the opposing teams defense, He isn't a true threat. When defenses are gameplanning to control D.D..Then He will be an elite back and I hope he achieves that level.

But lets be realistic, If he gets injured again. He will be labeled as injury prone. If he doesnt Make defenses gameplan around him and worry. Then he will be labeled as a possible starter. This is a make or break year for Davis. period.

Some of y'all are far to literal in your interpretation of the Steelers comment by Dom. He doesn't mean he wants a RB with a visable belly and a consistantly under 4.0 ypc average (6 of 7 past seasons). He means he wants an offense that can run the ball effectively, i.e. to get 1st downs or very short 3rd downs, take the pressure off the QB, sustain drives and control the clock. The Texans wouldn't have drafted DD and more to the point Hollings and moved to the zone blocking scheme if they were bent on developing a Steelers clone with two giant meatbags running straight into the DL and trying to push the pile 3.8 yards.

No one has presented any convincing facts that would make me believe DD is the answer at the RB position. It is pointless arguing with homers. They bring nothing to the argument.

Good post, I guess I didn't read between the lines ...

Still though, I would like to see our offense focusing on a TE in the passing game moreso than DD...DD has a knack for getting nagging injuries and if he gets less touches in the passing game, maybe he will last a little longer without getting injured...I realize we haven't has a TE of that caliber since DD has been here, but hopefully Joppru can prove to be that guy...

Or it is pointless arguing with people who bring no facts and resort to name calling.

I would love to see the Texans get a legitimate dual threat TE. Hopefully they have one already--it would really help out every facet of the offense.

No, it is just pointless arguing with homers who can't take off the steel blue and battle red shades. Here are the facts: For the first 10 weeks of the season, Domanick Davis was perhaps the worst starting RB in the NFL boasting a 2.8 YPC with a longest run of 11 yards.
