Re: Duckett or Sellers

I agree, he takes a while to get going, but I still feel he is far more effective on short yardage than betts, who does tend to trip and fall a lot, get's ahead of himself sometimes.

You invest all you can into top speed and when you start playing, until the acceleration is better it's like it takes FOREVER to get to top speed. That's him. Once he gets to the LB level he's REALLY rolling for a big man, but it seems like it takes him FOREVER to get there.

I know it didn't need a stupid analogy, but I'm trying to waste these last few minutes of work.
I love the analogy...

I couldn't agree more.

As far as short yardage goes, If your the coach, who would you give it to on 3rd and 2?

I'm giving the ball to Sellers...Duckett does a great job breaking the short yardage for a huge gain, but Sellers will get those 2-4 yds every time. I'm getting the first down w/ Sellers, and then handing it off to T.J. the next play.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

You're right Malcolm. I just started playing NASCAR on the PS2 and I had to deal with the same thing. Reminds me, I need to update my car...

THIS IS WAY OFF TOPIC,... Accepted is FUNNY AS HELL !!!!!

Duckett does seem a little slow hitting the hole but once he picks up he is kinda like Ram-Man !

Re: Duckett or Sellers

Both backs are pretty smash mouth and going head on against them is suicide for almost any defender (almost always will roll over them) but I personally feel that sellers has more versatility then duckett and breaks more tackles

Re: Duckett or Sellers

sellers had had much more success on 3rd and short than duckett (as far as the redskins are concerned). he's 280 and he's got a real boom. TJ seems more like the big version of a speed back. he got decent yardage, but 3rd and short with 9 blockers... not so well :/.

What Duckett had a fumble yesterday. Betts has proven to be a very solid 2nd RB which we sould not let go of.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

This is a good analogy. I think that's why Duckett looked so good on the stretch play. It allows him to get to top gear and then cut back off his blockers without having to dance around defenders. All big backs are like that. If they have to do a dance at the line, they are easy to deal with. But, if they can run straight downhill it takes three guys 5 yards to get them down. Momentum = Mass X Speed. Stephen Davis, Mike Alstott, John Riggins, Gerald Riggs, and George Rogers were the same way.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

If you never saw Duckett play and based your opinion about his skills from the posts here on this forum, you would think he is the second coming of Earl Campbell. Duckett's alright but Betts is more ideal to back up Portis (if he doesn't demand big money).

If you look at it rationally which type of RB better steps in when Portis can't play, an every down back like Betts or a short yardage plough like Duckett? Personally, I enjoy Duckett's style better, but I'm not the o-coordinator.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

Duckett going to leave should have never traded for him was a wasted draft pick. Seller was here already, he always gets the job done. Had a great year last season. But typical redskins had to go after the big name instead of the guy who dose the job day in and out.

Actually I would think his value may go up - why you may ask? Well with running backs who play full time get a ton of wear n tear. As long as Duckett has kept in shape wouldn't he be better off not getting banged up like Portis was this year? Teams know what TJ can do and I don't think he has to prove it this year - he steamrolled in Atlanta and Philly was going to sign him and the Skins got worried about the Eagles getting Duckett so they gave up the bank to stop it - anohter reason to get a GM - this was a short-term mentality move.

QBs who don't play get rusty, running backs who don't play but stay in shape get healthy and quickly regain their football instincts.

My opionion is TJ is loving this because he is getting paid while not ripping up his body.
