Default DD vs. LT last year

I was snooping around and I came across this. Very comparable, both were injured for awhile so you can't really argue about that.

Just scroll down to #'s 31 & 32 they are both there.

Wow I knew DD was good, but LT good! Makes me proud to own his jersey.

Wow, that is nice. Take a look at the Individual receiving numbers, too. Davis #64 and LT #79

see some of you talk about how great LT is and how D.D dont compare think, well they have simular numbers, and Davis leads in receiving yards. Plus their avg rushing yars are both 3.9.

The difference between the two? LT is the focal point of the offense while DD is mainly a safety valve. Teams don't want to see the ball in LT's hands. For us, opponents will take their chances with DD running the ball rather than letting Andre Johnson get his hands on it. We have a losing record when DD rushes for 100+ yards.

Honestly, it suprised me on the stats..but maybe I am just hardheaded and slow to come around..but if I had a chance to pick Lt or DD.... Lt would be my pick ..hands down.

to me.. teams play S.D. and what do they want to do? Stop LT..
teams play the Texans and what do they want to do? Stop AJ...

I just have LT's 2003 stats still buried in my mind ..100 catches.. over 1600 yards rushing and 2002 Lt needed about 20 more catches to duplicate 2003


on that note, I am happy to have DD.. He has done more than I thought he would have when we drafted him.. He has busted his butt for the Texans and I am thankful for that and I do think that with a better OL he will put out better numbers.. He is a solid back IMO..not spectacular or great but solid. I just wish he had a little more breakaway speed

Agreed...The big difference is that teams game plan on stopping LT and allow the Chargers' receivers/Gates beat them...For us, opposing teams focus on stopping AJ and seeing if DD can beat them...

Do we really need to start another DD debate thread? o_O

*rings bell*

ROUND ONE! GOOOO!!!!

Who cares, both players had to deal with 11 in the box all season [although for different reasons]. LDT was blessed with a warm Brees though. Get the pun? Get it?! Eh, eh?!!

I said that once he stayed healthy that he was a very good player. Wells and DD are going to do just fine for us this year.

There is no debate here. LT is clearly the better back.

I say this is Hollings year to show us what he's got. You want break away speed? Enter Hollings. If the Texans can put togather a consistant one two punch with Hollings and DD next year the running game will be just fine.

Yea he got pulled from the KC and TN game early. Still got 10 carries in each game but was pretty much ineffective.

I really want to believe that Hollings is going to amount to something, but he's spent both of his years with us plagued by injuries, and I don't know foresee that problem changing this year...I hope I'm wrong, though...

No one's arguing that. We're just giving DD his props as one of the better backs at production in the league.

We run-blocked pretty well on the left side of the line. It's the main reason I'm not ready to ditch Wand yet.
