he's done it before. he rotated in a handful of times during the 2006 season if i'm not mistaken.


That would be awful, one chop block and he is done forever.

Here is what I think. We obviously seem set at LB, even though Davis might be better than Anderson, my Stats class taught me that Davis has a larger chance to get injured if we use him more often.

Make sense so far?

So here is what I propose RR..

Use Davis in special packages as a safety/linebacker hybrid, kind of what he came in to do when he was a rookie.

Remember we basically drafted him to spy on Vick and it worked (to some extent).

There is no doubt Davis still has speed so why not use it to our full advantage. Because lets face it, Davis will not make it 16 games as a three down linebacker, call me whatever you want, a non-fan, a cynical betch, but this is what I believe and my pre-med background backs me up.

And he MUST be used on ST...remember his rookie year he ended someones career on kickoff coverage. Not that we are looking for that, but you get the point.

I just think we should prolong him as a player and get some benefit out of it...and Martin could use the rest too ; )


Premed? Go be a good lil sheep and promote your flu shot. Fug you dude and your medical books. They mean jack crap when will power and men like Davis create their own destiny based on what they believe

yeah there's no way in hell.

TD's ability when he's on the field is well worth the roster spot and the measures taken to prolong his usefulness. he's that good.

let some sixth-round third-string blighter fighting his ass off to stay on the team make the body-sacrificing stops.

how has his will power worked for him in the past?

and medicine is a joke..I doubt Davis thinks that seeing as how they have reconstructed his ACL three times.

When you look at how many players get injured on special teams as a function of number of plays compared to normal linebacker plays, you would never advocate for your best players to be on special team particularly kick off coverage and punt coverage. If you want to limit his potential for injury you don't put him on special teams, you use him on passing downs which is less impactful than diving into a pile on third and short or getting cut from the side or back on a run play. Or you have him blitz from the edge where he can see who is coming at him.

Truth is that in the end if you play not to get hurt, that is exactly what will happen. You have to play your game and hope for the best. But I can surely see easing him into things.

Its no different than when we sucked on punt returns, but we all knew damned well not to let Smitty out there and return despite his talents and elusiveness. The most wicked poo goes down on ST.

No one who actually watches football would think of moving a player to STs to lessen the chance of injury.

I do however differ from a lot of other fans as what to do with TD. Imo, this is not a popular opinion btw, I think TD should start at WLB if he can win the starting position. Most fans think he should only be used in special packages in an attempt to extend his playing career. I disagree.

Outside of the starters we don't have a deep LB core. Davis needs to be fresh and ready to sub one of the starters. I wouldn't use him anywhere else.

How? It has him back on an NFL team after 3 injuries to the same knee. I hope you never tear your VCL (vaginal Crevasse ligament ) cause your doctor friends will say you can't have babies. People like you who doubt and project your pathetic views on others actually fuel elite athletes So thanks. Ps ....stick to cooking, cleaning and Aren't you supposed to pull for Brady or The Golden Calf of Bristol or the dolphins and their pretty colors. You disgust me
