Mr. Mueller,
What are your thoughts on the Texans' new running back Domanick Davis? I think he is a future star in this league. Back-to-back games of over 100 yards, and a couple of scores this past week against Indy. Do you think he can make it as the feature back in Houston for years to come?

Domanick has been pretty good for a kid who was only a starter at LSU due to injuries. He was primarily a punt and kickoff return specialist with the Tigers in college until LaBrandon Toefield went down. Davis has given the Texans' offense a big dose of quickness and acceleration and has been a great change of pace from Stacy Mack.
