Re: T.J. Duckett watch

Can TJ beat up on people like Brandon Jacobs can?

duckett is up next year, and i'm not sure he'll want to stay if he's inactive for 16 games. betts is a good pass catcher, duckett, not so much.

as far as talent, duckett wins and he's a nice pounder with surprising speed, but betts has found a role as the 3rd down pass catching back here (he and chester taylor are basically clones).

Ditto that Guy. Betts seems to finding his groove in Saunders offense. If I had my druthers, I would keep Betts over Duckett.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

Duckett is a nice insurance policy right now. Before the year is out I think he'll play an important role. Right now it's just a numbers game preventing him from dressing.

Gibbs raised a good point in the presser, if they are paying these guys why can't they play them? Does anyone know the rationale behind having to keep 7 guys inactive each week?

I found an interesting article that brings up the same question.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

I still think if a viable trade opportunity came up before the deadline the Skins would weigh their options with Duckett. Of course, all things being equal.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

He was mainly signed because they were unsure about how Portis would rehabilitate from his injury. Now that Portis has fully recovered and Betts is playing as solidly as he is, it seems as though it was a bad move in hindsight. I definitely think if a team made the right offer (a 3rd rounder) the Skins would think seriously about letting him go.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

Of course, we're one nicked Portis shoulder or a Betts hammy from seeing a lot of Duckett. You never know, especially in the NFL.

Exactly.

And with their injury history, it's not so far fetched to imagine one or both of them missing some time at some point this year.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

True that. It will be an interesting side story as the season unfolds.

I'll say this, Rock and Betts have had a fire under their butts since he's come to town.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

With the way Betts is playing right now, will we be able to afford him next year? Is it just me or is Betts a better back when he is playing with Portis in the game as well. He didn't seem to be very good in the Dallas game but with Portis splitting time with him, he's making better runs.

I think we try to sign Betts now and trade TJ for our draft pick back. We need it.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

Although I started the thread what about Duckett, I think we hold on to him for now. In fact, I would expect them to do so. Still a trade later on down the road wouldn't shock me. If the Skins had to choose, let's say, during the off season between the two, I would think they would lean toward Betts. Simply because he's been a Redskin for a while now.

I would agree, that Betts is a good change of pace back. I don't like how the guys calling the game Sunday tried to compare him and Portis. They really are two different backs.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

My guess is he the style of runner Al Saunders likes.

He stays!

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

I still don't see it making alot of sense. I say trade him if somebody offers us a decent deal.

Every team in the nfl can say that we're just 2 injuries away from being in trouble.

Re: T.J. Duckett watch

Obviously, I don't have all the information the coaches have, but big picture, I'd go with TJ over Betts.

My feeling is the size and proven success in short yardage is something that fits better with Portis than having two, relatively undersized RBs.

In fact, if we had Duckett on the field during the 3rd and 1 right before the 2 minute, I don't think the game goes to OT.

Unfortunately, one of those teams include the Redskins.
