Default Re: Duce?

I think the trend of the NFL is going to 2 feature backs. Willie and Duce together will be a good combo, like Bettis and Willie are right now. I think Duce will start making appearances after a couple more games and we will use him more often in the playoffs. I think we are keeping his legs fresh for a playoff run. I bet we drop Verron, Bettis retires (after our SB win!) and we keep Duce and Willie on for next year while drafting a big back with our first couple of picks to replace Duce after a couple of years. I agree with Heath getting better, 3-4 very good receivers, that our running game will tend to change over to a finesse type of game while relying on a big back in a few games.
