The fans aren't "down" on DD. Fantasy football players tend to look at stat lines only and get stats confused with talent though. The Texans have a running system and Dom has done well in it. Personally, I don't think he is top tier talent.

What I mean about them taken him for granted is drafting Morency for some competition is one thing and I whole heartedly agree that the competition would be good for him. But why go after Henry? I don't think thats saying "here you go DD here someone to push you" as much as it is saying, "hey DD we are looking for a replacement for you".

DD is the sheite. Take a look at the Fantasy mock ups DD is a top 10 overall pick. I am sure that isnt because he is small, slow, or otherwise bad. Also remeber that DD would have had better stats in the first year if Mack didnt come in on 1st and goal situations.

The guys that think Henry is the answer are stupid. DD is a five tool RB. Those who dont like him are just tools. (NdNewRBin05 I am talking to you.) The beast is right 1500 yds+ running alone this year.

Fantasy football and your worth doesn't equate to regular football. I don't think many fans understand that anymore.

For some reason the media get the Titans and Texans confused. Everyone just ran with it. The retraction(s) are in the long thread titled "Texans (not) Interested in Trading for Henry"

I am not even looking at it as FF. I said thats how I got interested in watching the Texans. I don't base my opinion from FF. I watch him and he is a joy to watch. He blocks, catches, runs harder than most of the NFL (and by the way that may have been a factor in his fumbling problem), I never seen him caught from behind, I mean come on what more does the guys have to do.

My league gives points for wins and losses. So there.

Actually I understand what you are saying about FF being different that the real game. That said, DD is a top 5 back. The catching ability seals it for me. Did you watch Shuan Alexander's stonehands last year, DD has the running ability and can catch. Talk bad about stats guys all you want but the numbers dont lie, unless my accountant gets to'em first.

DD is a quality back and I don't think we can sit here and say that the coaches don't show him respect. None of us see what happens behind the seen. The fact that they drafted Morency does not show disrespect. DD has had some injury issues and it is managements job to build the best team, so at that point in the draft they selected the best available athlete.

As for size and speed, he is bigger and faster then Emmitt and look what he did.

IMO DD will be a huge producer for the Texans for many years to come.

I dont see how anyone can be upset with him or even think of replacing him. True, He may be short, doesnt have breakaway speed, fumbled acouple times, but all I see when I look at DD is a 4th round steal whos amassed 2219 rushing yards, 939 receiving yards, and 22 TDs in his first 2 years.

DD is not a top 5 back. He is an average starter. Just a solid overall back.

Some guys forget that last season he had a msall injury then when he came back it took him awhile but then he became the good back he was before the injury, and on most of his fumbles his knee was down, Capers never challenges the bad calls, which his why his challenging percentage is low.

Any way Davis still got over 1000yds last year. He will be even better this year.

I read all that stuff. Like I said earlier I enjoy watching the Texans so they are the only other team besides the Steelers I follow. I just don't see what DD has done bad to warrent all these pick-ups and talk of him losing his job. He becomes a free agent after next year and thats the only thing I can think of that would remotely make sense on why they are picking up other players just incase they can't sign him to a long term deal. I hope Dom Capers didn't get stupider in his old age.

By the way, for the whole size arguement, I support the fact DD is the same size as Priest Holmes and acknowledge that. You can argue all day long about that and people don't care. The NFL and coaches got all the NFL fans believing bigger is better and thats all fans care about now. Not many starting RB's are above 5'11 which isn't a far cry from 5'9. But if the NFL says thats the way it is the fans will believe it.
You have to realize that ANYTIME there is a decent FA on the market, alot of posters on this board say we should pick them up. I dont know why, but they do. Heck, there was even a "pick up Korean Robinson" thread... Most posters on this board are sane, but some of them im not too sure about. Oh, and most of us LOVE having DD! He is a combo yardage monster!

Surprise of the year Jason Anderson.

yeah i remember him,he was alright, considering he was running against 3rd and 4th string players. but i doubt he will have a chance to even make the texans roster.

I supportd the idea of picking up Henry becuase I thought it could be a good cheap pickup becuase every team needs 2 good backs. We could keep him a couple of years and then not resign him. At that point Morency will be ready to go and the DD-Morency combo would lead us down the field.

You took the words right outta my mouth!! E. Smith didn't have break a way speed but I rarely ever saw him being caught from behind. They said, "too small, not big enough, not fast enough". Now look. He's the best complete running back to ever play the game and I think DD is cut from the same mold. Keep runnin' DD!!
