You'll see Davis get more and more playing time as the season goes on. By year end, he may be getting the majority of the snaps. But - barring injury - Scott will hold onto the starting job for the rest of this season.
Agree with John. Rex is a bit like Dusty Baker - slow to turn the reigns over to youngsters when he has vet options at a position.
I thought we'd see more of Davis in general over the preseason and first game, so - I don't expect him to be a real starter at all this year. Too bad
You guys underrate Bart. And you overrate Davis at this point. While he's lightning fast, you can see that he's not quick to make decisions yet and he's definitely thinking a bit out there. At least via preseason anyway.
Quit looking for the stuff to ***** about and ride the wave a bit.
Next year. David is not ready.
Davis barely played in preseason.
This question is not so much about when will Davis be ready as it is how fast is Scott's level of play deteriorating. Scott is a liability at this point IMO. I was hoping that losing weight in the off season might give him back at least one or two steps but as of now that does not appear to be the case. We need to upgrade the speed at that position and my guess after game-1 is that it will happen during the season despite the fact that Rex is overly loyal to favorite players.
I expect to see Davis on the field more starting as early as this weekend.
Right now it looks like Mauga would replace Scott if he went down. Scott didn't play that badly. He was over aggressive a few times, but he actually did pretty well in coverage.
Davis will have a chance next year. A chance. But a lot depends on scott. Its all in his court.
Slow doesn't even begin to describe Bart at this point.
I think technically Scott will start all season but Davis will just play more and more as time goes on. The coaches can't ignore what's on the tape and Bart is slow as molasses. But Rex is loyal to his guys and will allow Scott to "save face" with his fake starts.
I anticipate Davis playing more even in the next few games.
Id rather have a fast player make mistakes based on inexperience along wtih making some big plays with his speed, then an old player make mistakes and not have the speed/skills to make any big plays.
Scott is vastly overrated. Davis didn't really show me anything in the preseason. Hopefully he can get up to speed because we need speed and youth at the LB spot
Not that Bart was ever in Ray Lewis' league, but it's amazing how well Lewis is still playing. He was making plays all over the field on Monday night.
Remarkable at his age.
It's not davis that would take his spot imo. Scott is the thumper that takes on blocks, Davis isn't that type of player. Unless they move Harris to that spot, which brings me to another point.
Harris seems off to me. For all his faults, Scott was all around the field attempting to make plays (unsuccessfully mind you). Where was Harris? Why is Scott, the thumper, seemingly getting more action than the guy who is supposedly running around free?
