    I hope he has a good pre-season so that we can get D.Davis breather. Domanick reminds me of emmitt smith.

    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. :crazy:

    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 :idea:

    Revamped, healthy defensive front three, playmaker added to the linebacker position, rookie stud CB & DB playing into their strengths = more wins :party:

    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.
