TO for TD and that would have been perfect.  Warner had two stints of greatness wrapped around one stint of mediocrity.  2 League MVP's and a SB MVP, too.  Davis ran for 2,000 and fit well in Shanahan's system, but, RB's are a dime a dozen and he didn't sustain it for long enough.  And don't compare him to Gale Sayers:

'Sayers's records include most touchdowns in a rookie season (22 in 1965), most touchdowns in a game (6, tied with Nevers and Jones), highest career kickoff return average (30.56), and most return touchdowns in a game (2, tied with many players).'  From the Wiki

I just don't see RG III making it through the season.

That franchise is doomed. York got his new stadium, and he is never going to spend money on the organization again. It's kind of sad to see a storied franchise just left to wither and rust away.
