And Betts is proving that he can do what he's always done; run edge plays and dump offs well, but suck at blocking and getting decent yards between the tackles. Two 100 yard games doesn't mean that Betts is all of the sudden a top tier running back. Portis is.
And I'm interested to know what psychology class teaches the thought proccesses of the backup NFL tailback. Unless your major is sports psychology or coaching, I'd get my money back.
All these Bett > Portis threads are retarded. When he's 100%, Portis is probably one of the top five most complete players in the league. The "What have you done for me lately" attitude that the fans of this team seem to have(a reflection of its owner) disgusts me. Portis is a team leader, an unselfish top tier back, and the face of the team. Why so many of you are ready to cast him aside is beyond me.
Read my post again, i never said I wanted to cut portis, in fact I said I don't want to cut him. I just said if we got the right price for portis, like two first rounders or sumtin like that, then I wouldnt mind making betts the guy, and even then I'd probably want to keep portis, I just wouldnt mind that much.
