But when you think about special teams contributions (Jones-Drew, Betts, Bush), the Skins, Saints, and Jags are def the top three tandems in terms of overall contributions.

My thoughts exactly.

It looks like the Jets will be very good from the backfield this year too.

This is a great deal for us. I hope CP can have a major comeback "STATEMENT" year, he's do! I disagree with there number 3 ranking however. We are TOP TWO! CP and LB are gonna really compliment one another. Heck of a one,two punch!

I can see these two putting up an extreme amount of rushing yards this season, by themselves, and combined.

Re: SI.com: Portis and Betts #2 RB Tandem in the leagues

I think we are ranked in the right spot. Remember CP is coming off a very injury plagued season and no one knows how he will bounce back. Taylor was healthy last year and that is why they got number two ranking..

On a side note, I do not understand all this talk about Betts being the RB of the future, he is older and slower then CP. CP had an amazing time with us with the exception of last year. I would take CP over Betts anyday. He is a workhorse and hopefully will come back with a vengance this year. Betts is there to give CP a rest when needed. CP is our RB of the future for next few years, when he is finished we will have drafted a new RB to take his place. Betts is our back up and will always be, he will never be a featured back in DC.
