Duckett or Sellers

I know Sellers is one of the best personalities and hardest working players on this team, pretty much he is currently the heart of the redskins. However, I've notice him getting the ball on third and short instead of Duckett. I would have no problem with this if we didnt have Duckett but WE DO. I feel like this give the ball to anyone other than duckett approach is eventually going to ruin our relationship with this young promising back..............your thoughts

also, weigh in on the clash between saunders and gibb's offensive philosophies to keep the thread long enough. Seems like a MAJOR issue right now.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

With Portis out Duckett should..........should get a major part of the offensive running game. He has only carried the ball 12 times this season. The season is done. Time to see what depth this team really has.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

I don't know if they want to sign Duckett as a free agent. By not playing him as much as we feel they should, his value decreases on the market, and maybe that is the intent. If I were Duckett. I would not at all be pleased with the situation.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

i don't know what the redskins strategy is regarding duckett. a proven back in this league, all betts is to me is a proven back up. and the difference between Saunders and Gibbs is the run. Gibbs will run, and run, and run some more. Saunders tries to use the pass to set up the run. and if the run doesn't work, he will forget about it, completely

I do! Last year and the year before, we struggled BIG time on short yardage plays. I said it all along that we needed a big back, ala John Riggins type of back, and Duckett fits the bill.

You keep Mike Sellers though, because I think he's very valuable with short yardage passing plays. I'd like to see a little more with Duckett as to how effective he is in receiving.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

I see Duckett departing via free agency after this year. To his credit, he has been very professional about his lack of PT, and has knocked heads with the very few opportunities he has received. Sellers is definitely the more valuable since he's so versatile. He can play fullback, TE, and is a special teams ace. He's superior to Duckett in pass blocking, and he's a better receiver too. That said, on 4th and 1, I'd much rather see Duckett get the ball since he has a proven NFL track record as a short yardage specialist.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

the skins might be planning to let betts go and keep duckett. i would have no problem with that, i like betts but he seems to have a fumbling problem.

I believe that this is going to happen in the off season. Why give a 3rd round pick if your not going to keep him. Gibbs always wants and needs a big back. This would be a good combo with Duckett and Portis. Personally I like Betts but you can't keep all three.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

Again, 3rd and 1 to open the game and we ran off tackle with betts on a slow developing stretch play. WTF, i almost took a dump in the bar. What is wrong with giving the ball to a 260 back up the gut on 3rd and 1. They finally got it right later on but gimme a break.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

I think that Saunders is just now getting these looks to work to his advantage. Say we started running Sellers or Duckett up the gut from the get-go, teams would INSTANTLY know where it's coming. Sure, we should be able to get it, but wouldn't you love to see Sellers/Duckett come in on a third and one and Campbell to playaction and throw the deep ball?!

I wasn't all that impressed with TJ in short yardage. I believe he had two carries on 3rd and 1 situations, the first time he got stopped and it looked like a weak effort to me. He tends to tip toe a bit, almost reminds me of Ron Dayne a bit.

Re: Duckett or Sellers

it was great watching 5 guys at once trying to take him down. A heavier dose of duckett would wear them down so much faster, opening holes for betts. and yes, playaction would be killer with duckett in the mix, and he's gotta be a decent blocker at his size right?????

Re: Duckett or Sellers

This might sound weird, but bear with me...

For anyone who has played those racing games where you can upgrade your car and make it faster, better top speed, better acceleration, hear this:

I see Duckett as the car right when you start out and you're first upgrading. 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.
