Exactly, he would have gotten PAID by somebody else in dire need of a RB, and regardless of what anyone here thinks of Ladell, his career numbers and performance filling in for Portis this season would have been enough to get him big bucks -- at least Lamont Jordan '05 bucks, which was 5 years, $27 million, including $11m guaranteed. Betts is having a better year this season than Jordan ever had before bolting for Oaktown.

So, Betts leaves and we're gonna find a quality, reliable RB2 who's a "True Redskin" like Joe needs, understands the offense, and is liked and respected by his teammates, for less than what we paid Betts?

Betts is a better all around player.
Only the resdkins would give away what they did for a player that they did not even play. This team is in such desperate need of a GM its hard to fathom.

You can even look at Chester Taylor last year, the Vikings gave him 5 years, $14M

the redskins stuck with dockery the last few years, even though his play was sub- par. and the reward for that is leaving? this is the thing i hate most about all sports, the lack of loyalty. and, yes, i know it goes both ways
