Eye-opening camp award goes to Davis Now front-runner to start at slot receiver
BY K.C. JOHNSON AND JOHN MULLIN Published August 17, 2006
BOURBONNAIS -- Each Bears training camp seems to unearth at least one surprise or one player who helps himself more than expected.
By all accounts, one such player this year is Rashied Davis.
The receiver-turned-cornerback-turned-receiver has followed up his strong performance Friday in San Francisco with a solid week of practice. His bid to be the slot receiver is looking more and more certain and, with Mark Bradley and Muhsin Muhammad resting Wednesday, he lined up outside as well.
"He did really well early, then hit a period for three or four days where he fell back a little bit," offensive coordinator Ron Turner said.
"But he rebounded. He has helped himself out a lot. If he keeps going like that, we'll find ways to use him."
There were questions whether the 5-foot-9-inch, 183-pounder could provide enough toughness to handle being the slot receiver. Turner said his quickness and ability to get separation off the line has answered them.
"He has shown a really good knack of escaping," Turner said. "That's the key. You have to give the quarterback somewhere to throw. He has very good cutting ability coming out of his breaks."
Davis caught four passes for 91 yards, including a 41-yard touchdown pass from Brian Griese, against San Francisco.

Dash: I fell asleep in the 3rd quarter of both games. Bucks/Hawks was hype though.

Dash: Bucks are not a good team and are only in because Nets/Hawks got injured. They look several steps behind Phoenix.

sativa417: I'm not a Chris Paul fan, since I hate his flopping and Grizz played his Clipps in some good playoff series, so he's like the enemy to me, but still a great player, so down for him finally getting a ring. Crazy Suns are where they are now. When James Jones

kfilament: its interesting how everyone wanted to put an asterisk next to last years champions, but honestly this year seems fluky as hell with injuries, etc., but yeah, hate CP3 as a grizz fan by not mad to see him win one.
