Two Tears In A Duckett


My Redskins added some more depth at the running back position by dealing for the Atlanta Falcons' TJ Duckett. 

It is both an interesting and troubling move by Washington.

Interesting, since Duckett was one of the NFL's better "red zone backs"....meaning he is a great battering ram on short yardage situations.  It gives the Skins some good depth at the position...with All-Pro Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts already in tow [and top FB Mike Sellers].

Troubling, since this may be a sign that both Portis and Betts [who are both injured] are coming along from their injuries slower than expected.  Portis is hoping to be back for Week 1....but that's not a given.  Betts is playing, but banged up enough where if he cannot go...the Skins have no other option behind him [well, Rock Cartwright....but NOOOO].
