Re: RB's are worried in Washington

I keep Betts and trade Rock. Rock gets tackled too easy by one person. Also, Betts is a good kick-off returner. I say fear the HEAV-JUMBO with Sellers lead blocking for T.J..

Thanks, Ricky Irvins was the name I just couldn't think of. The 83-84 team was also lights out. TJ will add more than many guys realize

Re: RB's are worried in Washington

Were adding the final pieces to get this thing going. Sloppy preaseason but we'll explode in the regular season. Portis and duckett should help keep the o on the field longer and the d on the bench. This formula will work. Look at pittsburgh.

Re: RB's are worried in Washington

Rock is like the Teflon Don of the Redskins. He's always on the verge of getting cut, but survives. And while I love his heart, he has had some costly fumbles in the past preseasons and regular season (Chiefs game!) that make you go hmmm

good point. (as much as i hate saying it)i believe that rock will be cut, because, lets be honest, no one wants rock cartwright, in this league u need 2 or 3 quality backs, but if we trade betts, than rock could be our number 3

Re: RB's are worried in Washington

If we didn't have glaring holes, we get rid of Rock. Since we do, we trade Betts.

Re: RB's are worried in Washington

However good Betts is we have no idea if another team is interested in him for trade. We might be looking at Cartwright getting cut. Looking at it objectively this isn't terrible for the skins. Perhaps Nemo or Lumsden has shown enough to contribute to special teams the way Rock did. No one is irreplaceable. Betts might have staying power, though, with his KR abilities. You can't just give that duty to anybody.

By the way, i wrote this after drinking four pitchers of beer at Hooters for the first time in like 4 years. Tell me if I make any sense.

Re: RB's are worried in Washington

Skins will keep Betts because he knows the system and he can play well when called upon. I hope Duckett quietly meshes with the other RBs. Winning builds team unity, and the key will be a fast start to the season, either 3-1 or 4-0.

Re: RB's are worried in Washington

Rock's comment bothers me a little but we'll see how much he meant it when he plays next. He's allowed an emotional response immediately following the news but he better get on Gibbs bus.

Re: RB's are worried in Washington

Prediction: The Redskins will keep all backs, evaluate Betts and TJ at the end of the season. Whoever wants the most money or least productive is allowed to walk.

Exactly.

Rock will be kept for teams, Duckett for goal lines, and Betts for workhorse insurance on Portis.
