questions about deuce

Postby scrstr7 » Thu Aug 12, 2004 10:48 am

why does no one talk about deuce mcallister? isn't he just as good as a guy like shaun alexander? I actually think he could perform just as well as clinton portis. is this just wishful thinking or is deuce just flying under the radar? what do you guys see him doing?

overrated? pretty much stinks? are you serious? For someone with 4 posts and no backup thats a pretty bold thing to say. Deuce is a STUD. Yes he is just as good as Alexander. The only thing against him is his dropoff in TDs last year, which is going to increase back up above 10. He averaged 4.7 YPC last year and has missed just one game in the past three years, hes a stud and hes a top 5 RB.

I have him 5th on my draft board, should put up 2000+ total yards and 13+ TDs IMO.

I'm guessing the "he sucks" comment was sarcastic... why do we get these "Why does (fill in blank with stud) get no love?" threads every two days?

I can't imagine that he is out of anyone's top 7... That's love. He's a stud. Should we start 1a 1b 2a 2b 2c? Sure he's dynamic, but he had trouble putting it in the endzone last year, so he's down a few from the top few... it isn't disrespect. It is not like any one on here is saying, "Wow Duece will make a solid #2 back... "

He's my 5, and I'd love to be able to build a team around him.

Deuce

Postby Bears_Fan » Thu Aug 12, 2004 12:05 pm

We all know Deuce has been great yardagewise the last two years and is one of the top rbs in the league, but the td question is still relevant. The Saints offense could be better if it can stay healthy, brooks improves, and stallworth develops, but those are all still iffy, and while this unit should be better than last year, Saints offense must be signifigantly better than last year to put deuce in the top five. He' s great but not in my opinion ahead of Priest,Ahamn, LT, and SA, all players except for LT that have offense guranteeing the goalline carries.

Aside from LT, Deuce is the best keeper in the nfl...only entering his fourth season, and has been huge every year. Sure, he had a dropoff in TDs last year, but the previuos year shows that he can get it done. He is a monster and could very well be the best FF RB in upcoming years.

I'm not telling you where I have him on my draft board, but don't be surprised if he finished #1 overall.
