Betts has always been good on edge plays and dump offs, but his blocking and running between the tackles are still suspect. Portis makes up for what he lacks in those areas though, and since Betts has shown he can be quite effective at edge plays, I think Saunders would use them more like Holmes and Johnson if he had them both next season.

That being said, I think Betts will be gone next season, since most of the comments I've heard from him point to the fact that he's pretty intent on testing the free agent market.

Get draft picks for him.........portis is better no matter what anyone says. Although I have loved Bett's performance over the last few weeks.

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

Betts wants to be a starter, and, after the last couple of games, has showed that he might be worth a shot. Given that, he's outta here. Do any of the tags entitle us to a pick from the team who signs him?

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I say keep Betts if he'll stay. He and Portis in the backfield would be a good tandem IMO. As long as Betts doesn't run like a pussy and runs like he has been in the last couple of games.

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I think hes better than Duckett, but with a healthy Portis atop the chart, I think I'd take my chances with a rookie late round pick, and spend the money to extend Cooley's contract.

Good point. That money could go to extending Cooley and also Sean Taylor.

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I have always liked Betts and he has always stepped up when we needed him to start. I think his value is going up everytime he gets on the field which is going to cause us to loose him.

I know Duckett has not seen much playing time but what has he shown for you to like him?

I would say turn your post around. Trade Portis and keep Betts. You could probably get more for Portis on the open market. Plus Betts would be cheaper.

Portis is not going anywhere, nor should he. Betts has turned it up, but he's no Portis.

That'd be retarded. While I think Betts has performed admirably these past few weeks, Portis is head and shoulders better than him when he's 100%.

Uhhh... Betts has been injured every season he's been in the league, including this one. Plus, he's never even started half a season and has still managed to get injured repeatedly. I don't doubt that some team will sign him to be a starter, but I also think that team will be a bit disappointed when Betts goes down in the preseason from another ankle issue.

Re: So Will We Have The Money For Betts????

I agree, Southpaw. A few games does not make an NFL career. I think the FO really likes Betts, but I think, given our GLARING needs elsewhere, it wuold be a mistake to break the bank for him. CP is better, and not just at running. He's a better blocker, which matters a lot. WOnder if some of those missed bltiz pickups were on Ladell?

We're strong at RB. Use the money elsewhere: D line, DBs, O-line.
