Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

After much debate, give and take, posts, and interface on this issue, I decided to do some under-cover investigating.

It was determined that when T.J. Duckett first learned that the Redskin play book was 700 pages long, the native Michigander and MSU graduate's response was:

"Is someone going to read to me?"

After the blockbuster trade for T.J, and when plays were first called in the B&G practice, T.J. would run laterally, E&W as opposed to N & S. Something to do with Hotlanta, according to the coach-speak. Hotlanta, you see, is controlled by something called a "Vick", who as all Fantasy owners know, is not a controllable substance. T.J. was always known in Atlanta as the last "D" in the DVD. The uncontrollable substance, the 'Vick", # 7, and aka. Ron Mexico, had affected the T.J. HD!

So, Coach Al Saunders, and HOF Coach Gibbs have the T.J. in the shop, tinkering with the navigational system, re-directing his headlight assembly to recognize a #8 "MB", and are attempting to install a new "compass". Buges further diagnosed a hard-wiring problem, installed a new "CP" "U", which is always the B&G first option anyway, and recommended a GPS.

When we see T.J. again, there will be a distinct difference in his hard-wiring, and his recogition of the "CP" "U". But, alas, we will never see under his pads, to notice the scars.

True story!

All of the above has been fully researched with nameless Redskin insider sources, fully documented over the past several weeks, and we will have an on-field resolve in due time.

I think Betts established his value to the team too.

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

I say we find a club that is hurting at RB (a la Houston) and trade Betts - TODAY. His value us way up after a big week - and with TJ, we don't need him.

Let's trade him while he's still capable of bringing us something back in return. At least what we coughed up for Duckett.

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

They need to start using him in short yardage. there is no reason to pound portis into the line on 3rd and 1 when we have that big boy sitting on the bench. Most 3rd & 1 runs result in either no gain or 2 yard gains. We should be keeping CP fresh so that he can make game changing plays. Ducket was good in those situations in Atlanta so lets give him a shot.

I would trade Betts in a second. I would rather see Ducket on the team next year than Betts anyway. Ducket compliments Portis better in that he's a big powerful back. I don't think Betts is special in any area. He is neither an inside power runner or an outside speed back. He's just average all around.

While agree that he's not really special in any one area, I would acknowledge that he has good vision. I'm not a big fan of him, he's not the hard runner everyone makes him out to be, but he can get into space and make a few plays. He finds holes and gets through them. However, I agree, Duckett compliments Portis much better and is a far better back.

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

Simple answer, because Portis was hurt and so was Betts. If you ask 10 people about the degree of Portis' injury you get 10 answers.

They had the flexibility to make the move so they did. It is that simple.

The Niners. What a joke.

Another WTF statement. I'll try to decifer what your meaning is. Two weeks ago Walt Harris was on Isaac Bruce and had a pretty good game considering who he had to cover. Shawntae Spencer handled Torry Holt most of the time.

Joke about the Niners all you want, they are a much improved team. In a year or two they will be a team to be reckoned with.

Davis is a fumbler.

You call a buck 20 and a Td "handling"?

A buck twenty? Holt and Bruce combined only had a 107 yds and 1 TD. Those numbers are lower than I expected going into the game. I think our secondary won the battle.

Re: Why did we trade for duckett?

107 and a TD against holt/bruce isn't bad. especially when our secondary just gave up 152 to andre johnson alone.
