At 2-4, East Carolina isn't having a season for the history books. But Dominique Davis has given the Pirates something to remember all the same.

Davis completed all 26 of his first-half passes in ECU's game against Navy before missing on his first attempt of the second half, setting a pair of NCAA records. His 26 consecutive completions in a single game breaks the record shared by Tennessee's Tee Martin and Cal's Aaron Rodgers, both of whom hit 23 in a row.

And by hitting his final 10 passes a week ago against Memphis, Davis's overall streak hit an incredible 36 passes--shattering the previous mark of 26, held by Rodgers. As this post "goes to press," Davis now stands at 30-of-33 for 293 yards and two TDs. (You can follow his day on our live Gametracker here, or watch the game live on the CBS Sports Network.)

Not surprisingly, Davis's record-setting day has given the Pirates a big boost. After losing to Navy 76-35 in 2010, ECU is on their way to gaining some measure of revenge, up 24-14 on the Midshipmen in Annapolis with under eight minutes remaining in the third quarter.

Yes I agree that Davis is doing some good things such as this past weekend.  At the same time however he has also been to blame for some of the lack luster performances of the offensive unit this year.  It appears at times that he does not have the ability to throw the ball to wide open recievers down field allowing for easy interceptions. 

Either way however, I cannot believe that CBSSPORTSLINE.COM under their college football tab has them as ECA rather than ECU and nobody has caught this to correct. Come on CBZ (LOL).

But I thought Tim Tebow was the best qb of all time.  Why isn't his name mentioned here?

Wow.  No matter who is throwing the passes or who he is throwing against that is impressive.  There are so many reasons for a pass not to be completed it just blows my mind that someone could complete 26 in a row.
