Re: Our Problem: Rushing

Bett's is not a starting back, I've said it all along, he always fumbles when he gets 20+ carries, which he didnt even get sunday. I'd rather see cartwright then betts since he's got more speed which compliments duckett, however carwright fumbles as well. People don't realize how good portis is until we lose him. Without a solid RB, we can't be a running team, which I'm ok with since the season is lost, which will give campbell more looks, good experience for the kid.

I think we need to start Duckett and feed him the ball about 20 times per game. What do we have to lose? He's looked very effective in the limited carries he's had.

The Dolphins did pretty well without a running game (minus 3 yards!!). Still, that is the exception and we aren't going to win squat with that pitiful running effort against the Bucs. As has been mentioned, it is only now that we can really appreciate what a great back Portis is. Behind a distinctly average o-line, average backs like Betts perform poorly and great backs like Portis perform well.

With a bit of luck, Betts will have a few 100 yard games and build himself some trade value - perhaps we can get a first day pick for him?

I'd like to see more of Duckett - we could go back to old skool smash mouth football with him and take some pressure off Campbell.

no one's going to give you a first day pick for a guy with 3 days left on his contract... except for maybe the redskins.
