Carey Davis will change the running game around 360 degrees.

Or something like that...

I don't like it but I gotta admit that it is a logical move.

:Agree

I can't say that I would welcome him back with open arms, but I suppose he has to be better than Summers, which is a sad commentary of Summers to this point. Frank the Tank has a mystery back injury, and Johnson has a high ankle sprain, so adding a FB makes sense, and Davis does know the system.

I wish that this move was for a real blocking FB, but I suppose Davis is better than nothing.

Hello?

I've been calling for Redman from the start, but that idea was based upon him as the short yardage RB in the I-formation behind FB D.J. Johnson. But with Johnson and Summers both injured, bringing up Redman would not make any sense, because Redman is not a FB, and he would not have a FB to run behind. I would rather a real FB in spite of Arians' insistence that he will never employ a true FB :HeadBanger , but in this case, Davis is a better addition to the roster than Redman right now.

never thought i would say this, but i am almost glad to see him coming back. this team is missing something, maybe seeing a face you have won with may bring a little stability.

i know i'm reaching.

Aw crap, I was hoping that I was seeing things when I read about this....not like this is going to change the running game.

I don't know why, but I agree, and I was as happy as anyone when he was cut. I think that it was something Bouchette wrote recently in which it said that many vets thought that keeping Summers over Davis was a mistake - a lot to do with stability and his ability to mentor Rashard. Not sure if that is accurate, but if it is then I don't hate it.

Yea, cept the only drawback is "knowing" and "playing" the offense are two different things (and in Davis' case, never the twain shall meet).
