it's all in the timing

Brett Favre once said of Najeh Davenport, "The only thing keeping Najeh from leading the league in rushing is Ahman Green".

Najeh had over 170 yard in his first start. He never had as many as 500 yards in an entire season.

Najeh had a lot of injuries. He also was a second string running back that might possibly have started for a lot of teams. He might have been a Hall of Famer for the Broncos, who seem to get 150 yards a game out of everybody they throw in the backfield...or at least they used to when they had linemen that weren't afraid to cut block.

So Najeh was just another backup. Then he went to the Steelers and backed up Fast Willie Parker. And then he slapped around his baby's momma.

Najeh is looking for a team now.

You gotta wonder what kind of talent this guy had, and what could have been had the cards come out in a slightly different order.

I guess we'll never know...
