Angry Davenport

Steelers need to cut this waste of space.. cant get a yard twice on third downs! Holding penalty.. this guy runs like a wuss. Never seen a guy that big run as bad as he does. NO Passion in his game

You are completely right 24 fan. I've said this since last year. He was cut by the Packers because he is a very average player. He is bad at pass protection, is a 5'8 imposter in a 6'1 body and on screens doesn't make the plays Willie or Verron Haynes could have on third down.

Need examples?

The Dolphins CB Allen was coming on blitz plays pretty often and Davenport wiffed more than once. A particular time Allen ran through him, we're talking about a cornerback.

How many times this year have we brought Davenport in on third and one and given him the ball on a dive play? MANY times and he fails almost always because he runs completely erect and upright.

Screens on third and long, he gets the ball and goes down with the first contact. Give it to Willie, at least he has a chance to make a play.

And the penalties????


I don't think it is right to critisize much from last night because of the conditions but this guy has been failing since hes put on the Steeler uniform.

Just curious.. umm WHY? How long do we have to watch him get stopped for no gain on 3rd and 1? He has no explosion into the line of scrimmage. His lack of explosion far outweighs any positives. Only time he does well is when he gets a head of steam which isnt very often..Kreider needs those carries. period

Borski was being diplomatic, but I will just come right out and ask....
Are you stoned or just stupid?

I don't agree, either, and that's all I'm going to say.

Neither, he's right. Watch film on Davenport. The only time he gets anything is when the holes are huge and no one touches him. My patience is gone with this guy and it seems like Tomlin is starting to lean towards Davis on third downs.

oh, ok...we''ll just go and get Deuce Staley for ya....he should be a great fit for us.

Dump Truck might be a little inconsitent at times but he is a much better improvment of what we had before and he has done pretty well this season....

GP - Att - Yds - Avg - TDs - Fum
11 - 64 - 320 - 5.0 --- 3 ---- 0

for not being a starter, those are not bad stats....he does have more TD's then Willie
