Default Najeh Davenport

Is it just me or whenever the opposing team kicks to Najeh, i always think he has a shot to go all the way. i know he hasnt really even been close returning one but i love the way this big guy runs,,,he's deceptively fast and i think he will show to be a great pickup for the steelers in the future.

but thats just me, just wondering if anyone else views him like i do

On KR's: I like him. As stated in a previous thread dealing with Najeh on KR's, I'll take anything that doesn't fumble or bobble the ball at this point in time.

On running the ball: Maybe it's just me, but it seems he goes down easy for a big guy.

Sean Morey was talking about him in a news article I was reading tonight. He said that when he played against him, Najeh was very tough to tackle, especially when he got a head of steam!

He had some great years in Green Bay, and if he plays here with the Steelers like he did in GB, watch out. Good pick up by the Steelers. Najeh still has plenty to contribute to this team.

I like Najeh. If the Steelers can sign him, I certainly hope they will. Najeh can help the Steelers in a number of different roles. Besides return and short yardage, he can be the main backup rb and might even be able to compete for the role of third down back in the passing game.

As for the comment about Najeh going down easy, I do think at times Najeh runs a bit upright for a power back. Still, he has looked tough on a number of runs this year. Was it against KC that he cracked the endzone in a short yardage situation?

Maybe it's because he's more injury prone than Willie, and they're afraid of him gettin hurt with the games we have left? I really don't know, but that's the way it appears to me.

I just know that I trust Najeh back there 1000 times more than I do Santonio on returns.

Makes sense... Especially when it is going to take a couple guys to bring him down.

I believe Najeh is going to come to pass as a great acquisition by the Steelers. He isn't the Bus, but he definitely could fill some of that void in our backfield if given more opportunities. I am amazed at the speed this guy has for being such a hulk! We may be seeing his backfield talents a little more this week in Ratsville, as we may need him to get through the Rats' DL - they're awfully tough against the run. No huddle + Najeh = headaches for the Rats.
