I hope he has a good pre-season so that we can get D.Davis breather. Domanick reminds me of emmitt smith.
It is great news to here. I hope he has worked on his ball handling skills.
You have to love competition. I hope that Both DD and TH get alot of carries this year. Which means we are scoring alot of points.
Maybe we can have another scouting miracle. What if he turns out to be as good as expected after those 1st 4 college games. What if he even challenges DD for his starting spot? Then we would have 2 amazing RBs.
Combine this improvement with a solid offensive line = better results
Revamped, healthy defensive front three, playmaker added to the linebacker position, rookie stud CB & DB playing into their strengths = more wins

Sounds like he is coming along nicely. Anything extra that he can bring to the team will be great. I think pre-season will tell us a lot about what Hollings is going to be able to do this year. (DD will probably not get many carries, to make sure he is ready for San Diego.)
I see the Texans using Hollings this year as a nice change of pace from the scooting and powerful DD to a take it around the end and up the field from Tony Hollings.
That is my positive mental image anyway, and the beautiful thing about the off-season......is that you cannot lose your positive image until the season starts, then perception becomes reality.......or not.
I remember John and Lance talking on SR610 and they were at one of the practices and said on one play Hollings hit the hole FAST and didnt look tenative anymore. I wouldnt be surprised if Hollings got the majority of the carries by the end of the season.
I think that they would use him as more of a change of pace RB than a starter. He would have to do extremely well to get the majority of the carries, but I could see us using both of our RBs kinda like Philly did last year.
Good news for the Texans... not so much for DD's fantasy value... I would take the first, though.
Look at how the Eagles used Brian Westbrook last year. He got about 10 carries a game and was explosive in semi-limited duty. He brought explosiveness to a backfield that was otherwise workman-like with Staley and Buckhalter.
I see Hollings being our Westbrook...minus the punt returns.
