    I know how you feel. If Kevin Jones continues to stink, perhaps Duckett can finally prove he's worth a paycheck.

    Maybe. It almost seemed like Atlanta wanted him to start but he couldn't outplay Dunn. He seems to have the skills for a big man. We will just see if it is a desire thing or what.

    Do you think that this does not negate the possibility of the Lions taking AP? We know in the NFL its better to have a 2 back system than a 1 and with AP and Kevin sharing the load it reduces the possibility of either wearing out or getting hurt. Your thoughts, sir?

    I think we see so many 2 back systems, because there aren't that many guys who can do it all. Once a team has that guy, they usually go to a one back system. Even though LT & Alexander have back-ups who look good in limited play, they are "one back" systems. As soon as Denver finds the one guy who can do it all, they will have a one back system. Same with Dallas. They've been trying to get either of those guys to be the guy, but neither of them fit the role.

    If you have one guy who can do it all, your unpredictability goes out the roof, which will change the entire look of your offense.
