God only knows what makes certain smarks switch gears at breakneck speeds when it comes to support particular wrestlers. The most recent example I can think of off the top of my head is Barrett: Smarks were riding him like a rodeo show, likely thanks to being allied with Jericho and showing promise as a part of the Nexus, only to suddenly shit all over him once he returned with the bare-knuckle brawler gimmick.
Personally, I view Davey as a workhorse, a machine and a very solid talent that you certainly don't see come around often. Sure, he could use more polish on his mic work and expanding his personality, but I'm still a fan of his regardless.
