    Steelers bringing back Davenport
    Tuesday, September 30, 2008
    By Gerry Dulac, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    The Steelers have brought back running back Najeh Davenport with the intention of signing him to their 53-man roster to replace injured rookie Rashard Mendenhall, who is out for the remainder of the season with a fractured shoulder.

    Davenport was brought in for a workout today and, if all goes well, he will probably be signed and get ready to play in Sunday's game in Jacksonville.

    Davenport, 29, played two seasons with the Steelers until he was released in June. He started the final game of the regular season and the playoff loss to the Jaguars last season when Willie Parker fractured his fibula in Week 15.

    Mendenhall was injured on the first play of the second half when he was hit by Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis after a 3-yard gain. The Steelers finished the game with just one healthy running back -- Mewelde Moore -- after Carey Davis left the game with a sprained ankle.

    More details in tomorrow's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

    Quick fix, he knows the system and I think he can block pretty well. We'll see, and we'll be OK!!

    I woul dmuch rather have Dookie over Alexander. I dunno why I didn't even think of him earlier. He knows our system, and Alexander is a pussy.

    I'm sure that's what it comes down to... who knows the system and can step in and be ready to suit up Sunday night!

    I live in Seattle, and I can tell you with the way our OL is playing, this is not a good fit for Shaun Alexander. He would have to get thoughs tough yards, and he cant do that. He would end up being another RB in IR. Jax would snap his back like a twig....Call the Bus....lol

    He's why our line is in the condition it is. Jerome didn't need blockers, he made his own holes,so the coaching staff never realized our line was bad.

    I'd take Bettis in a heartbeat,even after sitting out for 2 years

    Are you being serious? He never made his own holes. All he did was push the line forward a bit, of the blockers didn't make him a hole. Jerome YPC was like 3.8 fo rhis career and he only had over 4 YPC in a season 4 times. Bettis had great lines typically.
