The Skins are vague about what's wrong with him.
It's been widely projected that Betts will get more carries.
Betts was also protected in pre-season to a degree we would expect a starting back to be protected.
Didn't we have four running backs last year as well. Everyone seems to think Betts' great season last year means Portis is on his way out. First of all, Betts is no Portis as an overall player. And secondly, why can't we just be excited about having two very good/great running backs on our team and all the possibilites with that? Why does the success of one have to be at the expense of the other.

Re: G Williams Presser

Portis is a threat to take it to the house on every single play. That has to have an effect on the players and coaches of the Skin's opponent when he is healthy.

Betts is a grinder and I love what he brings to this team but it is Portis who inspires fear.

What has made GWilliams a great coordinator who has stood the test of time is that he never runs a "vanilla" defense.

Re: G Williams Presser

I don't get why all of a sudden CP is viewed as being fragile.

Not much you can do about the injuries he had last year, it certainly wasn't about him not being tough enough, they were simply bad breaks, no pun intended.

I'm happy as a pig in mud with our RB situation. Hopefully CP will be able to stay healthy and have a big comeback year for us!

This is why we were the worse defense (in history) on 3rd. We have a great unit this year and he (Williams) doesn't need to ruin anybodies confidence with all his complicated schemes. Let's keep it simple this year Gregg, let the players make the plays.
it's not madden grandpa. you cant play 4-3 cover 2 the whole game ol timer....this league is all about blitzing and disguising the blitz. where was your comments in 2004 when we were bringing the house every play or in 2005 when we did that. now you are gonna kick a man when he is down? give me a break, this guy has had a great defense for 9 out of the last 10 years and you are gonna tell him how to coach now?

We've had 4 running backs every year that Gibbs has been here.
