aww hell, already know he's going to start even if willie does all badass, oh well might as use him since they are paying him a shitload, hopefully it'll just make willie more hungry and prove that he can be our starter for the rest of the season and his career, lol.

They'll probably throw Duce in for the short yards, I'd be great to see him healthy.

I guess you misunderstood what he said. He said Duce was questionable and that Joey was ahead of him as far as health.

Q: How did Joey and Duce look yesterday?
Joey is certainly further along than Duce is. He took part in a full practice and we?ll evaluate him further as the week goes. He is definitely higher than Duce is at this point with them both being listed as questionable. Joey has a much better chance of playing than Duce. We?ll assess Duce as the week goes on.

Yeah, I think it's best not to expect too much from Duce... :redface:

Remember this.. Duce is no slouch..he was our leading rusher till he got hurt. The guy is a beast when he carries the ball and runs as hard as Jerome and can carry tacklers for extra yardage.

Willie is going to get his chances to shine, but when Duce is ready, he'll strut his stuff too.

I love Duce as a player. He was awesome last year until he got hurt. Hopefully he comes back at 100%.

If / when we get all of our backs healthy.. Oh man, I can't imagine having to game plan for our running game now, but when we have a full compliment of backs again.. LOOK OUT !!

Not saying a bunch fo carrys only a couple to get him warmed up, i have team pass and saw the video, bill used the words"Willie is the starter and haynes will back him up but, ideally duce at one point can get in the game and get a couple of carries since he hasn't played in ahwile.".So no misunderstanding him since i watched the video ;).
