The Steelers are known for taking mediocre players from other teams and turning them into great players. Kimo, Hartings, and Farrior are all examples of this. Even Jerome flopped his last year with the Rams, and then came to us and got 6 straight 1000 yard seasons.

I'm just looking at the Falcons roster, and then Duckett's and Dunn's pages. They came to the Falcons the same year, and Dunn has started pretty much every year except for 2003 when he went down with a foot injury and was out for the season. On the carries Duckett did get this year, he got a 3.1 average per rush, which isn't bad, considering he doesn't have the chance to get into any kind of rhythm.

He started 10 games in 2003 when Dunn went out. Any idea what his stats were when he consistently ran? 4.0 yards a rush, and 11 touchdowns that season. That's a TD for each game started. How can anyone call this guy a flop. That'd be like saying Tatum Bell is a flop, just because Mike Anderson got the start in Denver. You can't blame Duckett for being on the same team as Dunn, it's not his fault.

In conclusion, Duckett is not a flop. Even without consistant starts, he still does fairly well. Put him behind our O-Line, and who knows what he could do.

Ducket is extremely injury prone compared to how many carries he actually gets.

I would rather roll with Duce as our hammer.
