If both are taking close to equal loads, It improves both of their chances at maintaining durability.

If someone is a little bruised up, then the other will get more carries.

Betts proved he was at least more durable than Portis last season didn't he?

I thought Mike Anderson fell just short of the 1k mark, that year. Not sure, though.

As for Portis tearing his ACL, that's kinda ridiculous. If anything, we should be predicting when Betts would go down, but I think they'll both benefit from taking the load off of one another. I'm hoping Portis has a bounce-back season and Betts stays healthy, holds onto the ball and finds the end zone a few times. I would like to see Portis go for like 1200-1500 and Betts around 700-800, but we'll see, I think that's a little optimistic.

Re: Dual 100 Yard Rushers

2005:
Mike Anderson: 1014 yards
Tatum Bell: 921 yards

So, I had it backwards, Bell came up short.

at least u made up for the mistake but i say

portis 1522 yards 15 tds and a pro bowl nod

betts 737 yards 6 tds

and the redskins are announced as having the best running back duo in the nfl while jason campbell throws for 3,184 yards and 22tds and only 7 ints while santana moss has 1148 yards and 8 tds and gets a probowl nod


and jason campbell will get the nod to hawaii after drew brees decides not to go after what happened last year

Re: Dual 100 Yard Rushers

Since it is all speculation anyway, and since I dont feel like being level headed right now. Portis 2000, Betts 1000 and Campbell throws for 4000! Whohoo, high expectations!
