    There is a Feature story on NFL.com talking about Davis having a break out year...

    www.nfl.com

    I really think he will have a break out year. I'm thinking 1600 Yrds.

    How many do you guys think he'll get?

    Its not really a feature per-say, its more of a advertisement trying to make itself look like an article

    The table is set, all he has to do is run it.

    I think the point was that D2 has more to gain in fantasy than any other player on the team.
    If this comes to pass, the Texans wll have a GREAT year.

    I'm actually hoping we get two backs with/near 1,000 yards. If that happens...Harry's 13-3 prediction might be a lock.

    Are you talking about the Texans...a 2-14 team...with the #1 draft pick last year? 13-3...a lock? A running back duo wouldn't have even close to that big of an impact after one of the worst seasons in the history of the NFL. I don't want to sound pesimistic, as I think we can go 8-8...but 13-3 as a lock is a little crazy if you ask me.

    I'm with you on this one. If D. Davis can stay healthy majority of the year because he will get hurt, I can see roughtly 1400 yards rushing and 400 yards receiving. His best year, 2004 Davis rushed for almost 1200 yards (1188yrds)and almost 600 yards receiving (588yrds).....

    I love DD, but the guy has not been able to stay healthy, what makes people think this is the year? We can only pray as Texan fans it is, but the offense will also be different. You can expect Kubs to use different backs often and throw more than they did in Denver. QB's love to air it out, and this will be no change in a QB mindset of our head coach. Although he was the o-coord in Denver, the Head Coach makes the final decision, and his passing was actually limited to Shanahan's run oriented schemes to control clock. When you look at the pass-run percentage in Denver, it was tilted to the air slightly, but i think passing philosophy will go even further in Houston, especially in our shoot-em-out conference. Look for their to be a 55-45% pass-to-run ration. Makes sense with them bringing in a TE, and TRUE #2, not drafting Bush due to a one back set most of the time. DD will get numbers, but I expect 1,200 rushing, 500 receiving!

    No Way DD gets 1400 or anything close to that next year or any year after...maybe on madden...but I dont think DD will ever surpass the 1200 yard mark...

    I share the same sentiments that most people here have about D.D. He's got to show he can stay healthy for an entire season. We know he's a very productive back when he's on the field. Hopefully this year he can play most of the season. If he can do that I think we will win some games this year.

    Sorry to chime in here with just 2 cents, but it is my opinion that RB is still one of the weakest spots on the team. With the other being the secondary.

    We may not have a superstar running back, but I think that in this system with the RB's we do have, IMO in will be one of our stronger positions production wise next season...
