Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

matty, you almost make it sound like this was a pannicked move by the redskins.

I think we would have gone after him regardless of portis's injury status.we needed a good goaline back and as someone pointed out earlier with those goalline stats, he is one of the best.

I don't think they would put that kind of value on a guy who only gained 380 yards last year. Redskins.com, ESPN, and NFL netword all have it as a 3rd round pick. Thats it... wouldn't they say a third round pick and a conditional pick to be named later if it were anything other than a 3rd rounder?
That's all it was, a third round. All this rubbish about us giving up a first rounder, two picks here and there...no way. It was a third as you said.

Panic move?

Not at all.

If Betts was 100% right now I'm not sure they make this move, and if Portis was healthy I really don't think they would have made it.

I don't think it has anything to do with panic. Panic to me indicates a move made out of desperation without much thought behind it. I think this was a well calculated move.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

Just think everyone, when we are down on the goalline this year we will have two of the biggest backs in the NFL to pound it in. Ducket behind Sellers!! I don't think we will be throwing the ball on the 2 yard line much this year. Just pound that rock!!

The trade will be officially announced today, until then this seems to be the most logical details about the trade.
Some article on Yahoo. I can't find it again. Probably NOT a reliable source but I did read it.

An article on ESPN mentioned a formula where we'd give up 3rd and 4th to Denver at worst.

The Broncos seem to get ALL of our draft picks.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

To all of those screaming the sky is falling as a result of this trade, you need to go get laid or something because you are clearly wound way too tight.

We got great value for NEXT YEAR's #3 pick. NEWSFLASH: That pick will not be on the field THIS YEAR. There is a window of opportunity THIS YEAR. What we got in return was someone who can be a real goal line back -- something that we have been missing (and has cost us games).

Duckett does ease the stress of when CP will be back, but here is the part I'm really looking forward to:

Seeing what happens when Al Saunder's puts CP & TJ in the backfield at the same time. The way AS uses the FB position, this would create some amazing opportunities for mismatches that will result in points.

not just that, late in the game when the defense has their hands on their hips,and sucking wind after chasing portis for 3 quarters, then they have big TJ to deal with. this is gonna be fun to watch.

Duckett behind Sellars DOES sound awesome.

I just hope we didn't give up TOO much for it.

For Portis fantasy owners like me, don't worry....CP will still get plenty of LONG TD runs while Duckett is waiting for a goal-line situation to come in for. Portis can put the ball over the goal line from ANYWHERE on the field.



It makes me replay his first carry as a Redskin against TB in my head again.

YouTube - T.J. Duckett Highlights - It looks as though he puts a good hurting on a defense.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

this is true, we can keep portis around longer if we spread the workload a little more, less hits, more years for portis, and more red zone touchdowns

Good Point, didn't think about that. Also watching the TJ highlight video he could bust a 3rd and short for a 20 yd. gain. I think we made a great trade here. Just another piece of the Superbowl puzzle. Now if we can figure out some corner depth.

Great points.

The future is now, that's all you can be concerned about in today's NFL.

Wright On Time


there is a very interesting quote from gibbs in this article from redskins.com

Quote:
"Right now there have probably been 8-10 phone calls in here from different teams that want some of our players".
Now i know not all of those calls were for Betts' availability. Maybe some were for Patten. Could anyone else be on the trading block?
