we could have almost any running back in the league for a 1st and 3rd

i'm actually hoping they just realized they want Portis around here a long time and need a tough guy 2nd runner to spread the work around. Betts was talented, but tough he was not.

Isn't that nice. Al Saunders now has a poor mans version of Priest Holmes and Larry Johnson.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

I had wondered if Saunders talking Betts up earlier this summer was an effort to strengthen his trade value. I'd like to hold onto him personally

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

I like it a lot.

Keeper running backs: Portis, Betts, Duckett, Sellers, White Jr, and either Lumsden or Nemo with the other on practice squad.

Don’t think Rock is a keeper this year because of the numbers…We now have 3 runners that are better and a few others that may be better….and lordy they better not keep Rock over Sellers.

To me, it seems folks love Rock for his personality, so folks create reasons he's a keeper. My opinion is that we’ve seen Rock’s ability and know he isn’t good enough to start for the skins while we have a few young guys that may have the ability. Lumsden, Nemo, and While Jr. all MAY have the tools to become very good runners. The old standby, Special Teams, doesn’t make sense because the young linebackers we have that should fill in fine, and also appear to have starting potential.

Basically Rock is the 4th best runner on the team while the other runners may be better…so you keep the best 3 and the 3 with potential. And I get long winded…

Wouldnt he be able to share information about our offense with people? Maybe he's not doing as well as we thought in that. Or do you think Cartwright might be the guy to go?

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

Say we were to trade Betts for an O-Lineman. Whos on the trading block?

No, I just know both of them are capable of being Denver's #2 CB and we are in the market for a young, talented CB.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

For the folks that are talking about how slow duckett is, well, you don’t have to look back to college to see proof he can roll…watch some of the tape from him last year when he broke free. He is only like bettis in the size and hitting areas, I don’t think bettis ever had this speed, even when with the rams early in his career.

So…What happens now?
Do we trade betts and use a lightning/portis and thunder/duckett combo or do we keep betts as insurance that if portis is hurt long term we aren’t down to 1 proven runner in duckett, a decent one in Rock, and a few unproven/potential young guys?

Betts definitely has some trade value... the Jets were interested just recently for example.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

For those who say Ducket is slow

CNNSI.com - T.J. Duckett - -

TJ. Duckett | HB | Michigan St. | Big Ten Conference
Selected by Atlanta Falcons in round 1, pick 18 (18 overall)
Height Weight 40 Grade
6'0 254 4.48 4.12


Darren Silva/Getty Images

Big-bodied runner that started his career as a middle linebacker but quickly became the team's feature back as a true freshman and has been productive the past three seasons. Rushed for 236/1,236/5.2/10 as a junior, also catching 12/80/6.7/1. Totaled 240/1,353/5.6/7 on the ground as a sophomore and caught 8/39/4.9, though he missed time due to assorted groin, shoulder and ankle injuries. Did not start a single game as a true freshman but rushed for 118/606/5.1/10. Totaled seven games last year in which he rushed for more than 100 yards and has topped the 200-yard mark on three different occasions during his career.
Powerful back that is more than just a road-grader. Sees the field, finds the open spot in the defense, displaying good footwork and the ability to side-step opponents. Quick through the hole, has a burst in the open field and puts his shoulders down when tackled. Patient, will pick and choose his spots and follows his blocks. Rarely brought down by the first opponent or a single defender and picks up a lot of yardage off initial contact. Does not lumber or plod as you'd imagine a big back would and shows the ability to squeeze through small openings. Good receiver out of the backfield and a reliable target in the short field. Does not always seem to run with a physical style or really look like he is playing to his size. Needs to condition himself and attack the game but should easily be able to take the pounding of an every down back at the next level. Mid First Round.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

Why is everyone so high on betts? What has he ever done other than a few good runs here and there. He gets injured yearly, and coaches praise him so much it reminds me of a certain reciever... 4 years in and hasn't broken 400 yds in a season. Same draft, Duck by the numbers seems better to me...and lord knows when it comes to playing style I'd rather have a battering ram, that duckett is faster in the open field seals the deal for me.

***EDIT***
Tried to post their stats down here but it was all screwy looking.
Numbers: Duckett has been in 7 more games, has 231 more carries, 904 more yards, .1 less yards a carry 3.9/4.0, 26 more TDs 31/5.

Basically, i disagree with folks that are saying duckett isn't good, that he hasn't done anything, and that he will be our 3rd string back.

Re: We traded for T.J. Duckett?

How is he as a blocker? Because we know Sellers can block for Portis, can you put Duckett and Portis back there and can TJ block for Clinton?
