Default Re: Staley vs Duckett

IMO, it's still early to give up on Duce. It's only preseason. I would rather wait until we actually start playing meaningful games before I throw him over the cliff. I'm not denying he looks rusty; but I wasn't expecting him to come out and bust off 100 yards after riding the pine for the last two seasons.

As long as our backfield is healthy, I'm not concerned. Would it be nice to have Duckett? Sure; at the expense of a 3rd round pick? No. Do I see the Steelers snagging Duckett? No. I would rather get through this season with what we have and work our "draft magic" after this season is over.

"I think I'm getting there," said Staley. "The more reps you get, your timing is starting to come back and you're starting to get that feel. Things are starting to come back to me and that's what it's about."
