Default Davenport

Terrible news struck Thursday night as the NFL's leading rusher Willie Parker out for the rest of the season with a serious injury!
My only question....Can Davenport carry the load!?

98 yds, 2 TDs so far, early in the 4th quarter. Not to shabby so far.
We're going to need him.

He is built more like Jerome & has good speed & good yards per carry as "#2" Yes we'll miss Willie but I am very comfortable with dumping the load on Davenport.

He doesn't have FWP's speed, but he got the job done tonight and I think he will rise to the challenge.

Ya so does every other running back up there, apparently.

Ironic, isn't it. All we hear is bitching about how our crappy field is going to get someone hurt then we go to the dome and our number #1 and #2 (though Najeh would return) get twisted up in the artificial surface...

As long as he remembers not to drop the load until he reaches the ENDZONE

i am VERY concerned about najeh getting hurt. he was given opportunities in his past to carry the load and has never been able to stay healthy. i think we may be in deep DOO DOO on our RB depth.

I was starting to like the artificial turf until now. i hope the rooney's keep it now.

it could have been just bad luck that it happened on artificial turf, but right now real grass gets my vote
