One of the most impressive defensive plays this season was when he was Mano y Mano with R.Wilson in the open field. No other defender around to provide assistance. Davis locked in like a missile and took down Wilson like it was no big deal. Showed pure speed.

3 ACLs. Owning Wilson

Make no mistake about it bro... He has been blessed.

Sometimes God needs to humble people, sometimes people take control of their own lives and don't leave it to the will of God. We are all servants. Sometimes even believers tend to forget this. God has blessed this man and healed him so that he can still play the game he loves.

There's nothing wrong with people who disagree with my words and I'm not trying to preach a sermon... I'm just sayin'... I bet if you asked him, he'd tell you that he's blessed.

Sometimes life happens, accidents happen. It's when u hit rock bottom that life becomes really clear to a person. That's when you realize why there's only one set of footprints in the sand.


i'm not going to sit here and argue religion with you. but the things that got him through his injuries were will, determination and support from teammates/family. sorry, but being "blessed" has nothing to do with it.



edit: i forgot surgeons/medicine.

I honestly think TD deserves a statue when he retires. He personifies Keep Pounding more than anyone I can name, and unlike Mills he actually played more than a couple seasons here.

Davis needs to move to weakside again. It is his best position and he only moved to accommodate Beason. No need for that now. Let Blackburn start at Sam. Beason needs to learn to play Sam as well or he really will lose value for the team. He needs to be a key back up and rotational guy for this year. Next year he needs to catch on with a 3-4 team and play inside where his diminshed speed won't be as detrimental. Feel bad for the guy.


I agree with this, but I love how physical he is with TE's while covering them. Also I like having him run blitz from the 4-3 Under, both of which is usually done by the Sam more so the Will.


I think he struggles just a little getting off blocks at times, which is the only reason why I want him back at the Will, other than that, the Sam fits him perfect.


Him and Luke are the perfect pair of nickel LB'ers.

I have to admit that I was wrong about Davis.  I never thought he could come back and play at the level he is playing.  Not only is he a great player, but from what I have heard he is an even better man & leader.

As we tend to do as fans, we begin to take certain things for granted. I wanted to make a thread that would serve as a reminder of just how special TD is.

We all know what Davis has been through as a player and as a man with the 3 knee injuries. It swells my heart with pride to see this guy on the field each and every Sunday doing what he does.

So far this season TD has 25 total tackles a sack and a pass defensed. He's on pace for his second consecutive 100+ tackle season. He has assumed a strong role as a leader of this defense recently issuing the challenge to the DBs to make a play. Playing beside Luke makes it hard to stand out but any Panthers fan worth his salt knows what TD means to us.

Davis is literally a walking, nay, running miracle. We should be in awe every time he steps on the field. I for one could not be any more proud of this guy as he is a true testament to what it means to "Keep Pounding".


as impressive as it is, im more impressd by the surgeon
