Re: Changes at RB for 2007

Wouldn't it be something to see both Portis and Betts go over 1000 yards next season?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the last time that happened was for the Browns in '85 -- Earnest Byner and Kevin Mack.

Re: Changes at RB for 2007

A) Portis has very little trade value ( i'd say a low 2nd at best)

B) He would have ran for another 200 yards more than Betts in these three weeks (holes have been HUGE) and thats nothing against Betts because I love the man.

C) It'd be stupid. If we go into next year with Rock Cartwright and Ladell Betts as our 1/2 punch (and trust me I love both these guys) were in deep shit.

I fully expect to see Portis get about 20 carries a game, Betts 15. If we shop Porits, were in big trouble.

Any other teams you can think of that need a running back, how about the Saints, they could use running backs.

Yeah, how 'bout the Chargers? They're really hurting for RBs.

Yeah that was the last time, but it's probably going to happen this year with Vick and Dunn.

Does sound very much like "Betts Better Than Portis" which we beat the hell out of last week dosen't it?

Not that I would trade him but where did you get that idea from? His contract is hard to swallow but the man is worth a lot more than a 2nd round pick. And last time I checked he is 26 and in his prime.

Re: Changes at RB for 2007

Portis is chomping at the bit to get back in the game with the way the O-line has been playing. I think he's looking forward to staying right where he is.

I think you have a point in this, not that Portis is in my view is in danger of being traded. The business side of the house and managing the cap plays a role, but the most damaging thing since most players love Portis and what he brings to the team with Skills, leadership, character, and annointed Mr. Redskin by most fans. That would be really damaging to what I see as the Redskins keeping core players together and building it around your playmakers. Especially with the comfort that the two backs have working together it is not selfish with these two.

Re: Changes at RB for 2007

u cant trade portis just based off his salary. no team is going to on that big contract. u have to release him and that is a huge cap hit. no way portis is gone. betts knows portis is the starter betts does alot more than just play rb can play special teams, hes a good reciever out the backfield. plus portis takes himself out of the game alot so betts will get his touchs too next year

Fox pointed out that Betts was the first Washington running back to ever have back-to-back 150+ yard rushing games.

Portis is going nowhere. Throughout all of Gibbs 1.0 glory, we always had two very capable running backs (Riggins/Joe Washington, Riggins/ George Rogers, Rogers/Timmy Smith, Byner/Riggs, Byner/Ervins/Riggs). Remember, both Portis and Betts have each had their share of injuries, so sharing the load should only help. Gibbs should do the right thing and push to give Derrick Dockery a new contract before he becomes a free agent in March. The O-line has been mauling defenses for the past 4 games, and Gibbs should make it a priority to keep them together instead of spending on another glitzy free agent.
