So let Davis and Gay battle it out in training camp. Nothing wrong with that.

My bad. I'm thinking of another thread.

I find it constantly amazing how this FO continues to fail its fans by doing what the FO thinks is best instead of straw-polling its fans (General statement concerning the entire offseason, not directed at anyone specifically here).

Davis helped the team get into and win a Super Bowl. Why fiddle with the chemistry? His numbers were low because he got very few chances to do a whole hell of a lot. Davis is a FULL BACK not our feature back. He has very specific job duties and from what I have seen did them enough to warrant getting a deal at least for the next year.

What exactly do you want from a fullback? 100 yards a game? LOL

76, you have to ask yourself who is a better FB that they have on the team currently?? Ryan Powdrell??? That is why they tendered him the offer and what was Carey Davis gonna do...........test the market to see if somebody was gonna try and sign him away?

I'm surprised Davis didnt get a speeding ticket on his way over to the building to sign that tender. If he didnt, then he would be moving furniture with Retofsky.

-I want a FB to lead block and turn his defender in the hole to allow the RB to gain yardage........Davis cant do that. See him get blown up by Chargers, Patriots and Colts LB's all day last season.

-I want a FB to be able to open a hole on short yardage and goal line situations for the RB..............Davis cant do that either.

-I want a FB to be able to pick up a blitzer and protect the QB. Davis is poor at this too. Both Moore and Parker are better blockers.

-I want a FB to be able to catch a play action pass in the flat, turn upfield and bowl over tacklers for a decent 7 yard gain. Davis cant do that either because at 225lbs, he is outweighed by all NFL LB's.

I WANT A REAL NFL CALIBER FB.........CAREY DAVIS IS NOT THAT. He probably will be cut in August and beat out by Ryan Powdrell, Dez Sherrod or a rookie free agent.
