    Question What was the point in signing Davenport?

    Najeh has been a Steeler now for 2 weeks and has yet to play a snap. What was the whole purpose in signing him? I thought he was going to be the big back the Steelers wanted to replace the Bus? So far I don't even think he's played a down!

    What's the deal with him? Are they saving him as an emergency back in the game or are they actually planning to use him at some point this season?

    i think it takes awhile to learn the offense. but really where would you have played him today? i thought the running game was outstanding. ben and the passing game were the problem today.

    But they could just tell him run to the right andwe'll give you the ball when we're on the 2 yard line and he'll know what to do. I agree AZ, he needs to see atleast a few carries.

    You're right, he wasn't needed today because the running game looked good, but he's going to need to get some snaps at some point? Plus I think the only play he's going to be running is a HB Dive so I'm not sure how hard that is to learn.

    The point is to get him some playing time. There were times today where they could have gotten him the ball. Least a few times. He must know some plays after being here 2 weeks. If he doesn't cut him and get Reid on the team!

    Why cut him? Because he has carried as many time as Duece.....lol The roster moves this year have just made me scratch my head at times.

    Willie might have done well today but Haynes didn't and Dav. could have played in the downs that haynes did...3rd and short. And I'm sure he'd hold onto the ball too.
