yes.. lets all hope that DD gets a 2000 yard season so that we can trade him for a 1st rounder and draft a young unproven back who will be X100 better.

..........





If DD does well next season and stays healthy.. he is going to get a fat contract and we can look forward to having his skills for years to come. If he does badly.. he will get a not so fat contract and we can look forward to having him as a very good backup for years to come.

what you WONT see.. is DD leaving Houston. Thank god.

Seriously.. are you a fan of this team or not? cause I dont understand how anyone can look forward to trading a player like DD who has come in for us and given 110%.. and improved our offense ten fold.

Hes young.. and hes VERY talented.. you should be hoping that he has a good season and proves that he can be an every down back.. so that we can benefit from his abilities in the future.. not so that we can trade him for someone else.

Maybe if AJ has a really good season we can trade him for T.O... maybe if Carr has a good season we can trade him for a 1st rounder and get Matt Lienert.. maybe if Dunta has a good season we can trade him for Bailey.. why does ANYONE want to trade our young talent? good teams do not toss away talent.. they develop it.

Seriously.. if you are a fan of this team.. you should consider supporting our players so that our team can improve.. not so that we can trade them away and get whoever it is you have a man-crush on.

He could be the first Texan in the HOF. IMHO
Before the Hall of Fame, he needs to be a probowler. To be a probowler he needs to hang onto t he ball an avoid injury for a full season. I think DD is a great back, but Hall of Fame is a a group of players that are head and shoulders above their peers. I thought Haywood Jeffries was a great receiver, but I dont think he is a hall of famer by any stretch of the imagination. Its far too early to project DD as anything.

As I recall the average career span for a RB in the NFL is 5yrs. It may have increased since I heard that stat but it does make you wonder how much will be left after yr.4.

But what is the average career span for any NFL player? Some guys don't last long because they're not NFL caliber. I'd like to see a study on the average career span for a RB who gains 1000 yards in a season once in his career. Or twice. And so on. My guess is that the better the RB, the longer the career span.

Lucky hit the nail on the head. Lots of guys never make it past year 1 or 2. Even more never had a 1000 yd season. Less than 20 RB's out of over 1500 that have ever tried to make it in the NFL have started their careers with 2 1000 yd campaigns and none of them failed to get to a pro-bowl at some point. (Before you say it--none made it before the advent of the 16 game season--just one split the transition) DD may never make it to the pro-bowl or or be an elite back (and frankly I don't care as long as he is in the effective but 6-12th best RB range) but I will bet his career lasts over 5 years.

How ignorant is this? :brickwall Why don't you start your very own thread, call it "I Hate DD" and then post over and over again about how bad he is and how he fumbles too much. Then, when he rushes for a few more 1000 yard seasons and makes the Pro Bowl, the rest of us will have something to go back and laugh at.

How does a back that runs for over 1000 yards and catches 68 passes for almost 600 yards be a crappy back? Every one of your posts says that DD sucks, but you give no reason why he sucks. Support your statements with facts.

I was hoping you wouldn't notice this thread. "Crappy Back"?? Really. You REALLY think he's a Crappy Back. I mean Ryan Leaf was a crappy QB, Matt Stevens was a crappy FS, or let me guess, you've got DD juuuust a half a notch above those guys. Crappy....? C'mon dude.

Okay, you are everything that is wrong with professional sports fans today. It's not that your opinionated or harsh. It's the fact that you are opinionated, harsh, and yet remarkably ignorant too. You don't understand the game of football, obviously, and yet you are passionate enough about it to spend your time on message boards. I'm sure you boo your own team without real provocation and take each loss with personal offense, as if the team's performance or the game's outcome has anything to do with you.

You know, there is a difference between redundantly misspelling a man's name and a little humorous text in my title. You guys never cease to amaze me with how petty groups of people are when in anonymous, faceless groups. Frankly, I didn't even put that in my title....Khari did, and she is more educated than everyone here probably....she just has a sense of humor. Misspelling Dom's name over and over is kind of disrespectful.

Guys,

Anybody that has ....needs a "RBin05" in their screen name can not have a very complex thought process to leap to hating the Texans starting running back.

Besides, it is good to see the technique of "jumping to solution" is still alive and well in our youth. Although I am getting tired of seeing it manifest itself over and over and over and over....

Not to mention that the upcoming year is goning to have a very good running back class with Reggie Bush and Deangelo Williams at the fore.

Man Jppaul could you imagine reggie bush in the backfield with our team. Man it just makes me sing. Anyway it is not gonna happen, but it is a great thought. DD is quickly becoming one of the premier backs in this league and if he has another good year and we do not sign him we dont have to worry because some other team will take him, or we will have to use the franchise tender on him in two years. The kid can play and we are lucky to have such a good young RB.

I disagree 110% with that #1 It not that hard for an NFL back to get 1,000 yds. That was back when there were only 14 Games now the mark would have about 1,200-1,500 (also RB are getting better and so are the linemen.) #2 That really hurts when people like John Green from Detriot throw beer on people and your saying just because I Disagree with you I am "are everything that is wrong with professional sports fans today." #3 Why the hell would I boo the Texans I love them (even DD I cheer for him) even though he is not very good. Just a question to you does the teams performance have anything to do with any of us?

Honestly, I think if DD doesn't carry for over 1,000 I would consider trading, releasing him. I think V. Morency is going to be the Texan's back of the future....getting someone like LT or Shaun Alexander would be nice too.

Also I think we need to give Jammal Lord a chance during camp and pre season at RB.

^^^^^I love that guy

Tell me what you think.

I think its not going to happen. Start a thread if you want to talk about it. Try to stay on topic. Just a reminder.
