But he missed half of last season with injuries, and tendonitis can be a nagging injury in the knee of a running back.

Ever heard of the expression: "Ridden hard & put away wet"?

And last season was the first season that Betts has gone all year without missing a game due to injury in his four year career, in spite of the fact that he wasn't even the starter before late last year. He's not exactly a pillar of health either.

Well, we can argue our opinions all we want... but let's see who has it on their face at the end of the season (and I hope they both have 1000 yards)

Stephen Davis was incredible the year that he won the job. Marshall was the best but Davis was just as good as James IMO.

Re: Betts jerseys finally available

Here are a couple of interesting tid bits. Clinton Portis was never healthy last season, but before he was placed on IR he was second in the league with touchdowns. Yes, he may not have had the "100 yard games" that everyone is so crazy about, but his touches were limited. But when he did touch it, he broke off big ones. I imagine that if he was healthy all of last year, he might have had a 2000 yard season. While Betts has proven he can get the job done (minus scoring) he is in no means as good as or better than CP!

and he never will be as good as CP

look at this:

he is faster than betts
he is stronger than betts
he breaks more tackles than betts
he catches better than betts
and he is a better blocker than betts

overall he is better than betts at everything except fumbling

I think that he holds on to the ball better than Betts too. Some of CP's fumbles were questionable, while Betts just plain got stripped.

Of course.... how many times has this debate circulated this offseason... only the season will tell......

You are making my point for me... Portis is now having his volume of touch catch up with him. Ever hear of Terrell Davis?

Re: Betts jerseys finally available

In the end we're in a great position here with two quality backs. I honestly don't care who plays or runs for more yards, I think both guys are capable of putting up big numbers behind this offensive line.

Clinton Portis is not Terrell Davis. He does not have a serious knee injury, and once again this was the 1st season he has had because of significan injury and that was because he had a broken hand that he could have come back from if we had already not been eliminated from the playoffs. Clinton will be fine and he will rush for 1,500+ yards again in 2007 and log 13+ rushing touchdowns.

Terrell Davis was not injured until he was injured.... CP has taken ALOT of hits and running backs with alot of abuse tend to have short careers.

Besides Quake, I thought they told you your posts had to be longer than your little standard statement (I have no idea what the F__K it is called)

Re: Betts jerseys finally available

I think that we're in good hands with either Portis or Betts.

We're in great shape with both.

I dont think RB is an area of concern for this team.

Your 100% correct... but of course, training camp hasn't started yet, so what else are we going to argue about?
