We run left a lot of the time regardless of who is running the ball. It's the stronger side of the line.

Betts shouldn't even make the squad at this point. Both Cartwright and Mason have been running better than him. What does he really bring to the table? He's not a change of pace or a short yardage guy. What good is he?

Cartwright is not even close to the RB that Betts is

i know but last night just brought me back to those back to back runs to the left by betts against the giants. if we're gonna run for it, let portis try it, not betts.

On those plays if Betts runs full speed he gets in for the TD. He seemed kinda of confused of where he was going to go.

thats why i'm sick of seeing him run it. it's like he folds under the pressure or something.

Mike Sellers also missed his block on that play

He's been running better than Betts and has more to offer with his special teams play. Right now, I'd rather keep Cartwright, Mason, and Dorsey. I don't think we'd miss Betts

I sometimes wonder if people are watching the same players I'm watching.

Betts needs to play more this year, and he needs to step up and be productive, simple as that.

What we need to do is draft another RB next year and replace him!

That's a very good point. It's hard to tell if Betts just doesn't have a nose for the endzone or if the offensive unit "goofs" more when he gets the call or if the oline even pushes a little less hard than when CP is on the field.

Betts seem to run over CBs, safeties and smaller LBs pretty consistently...he gets destroyed by D lineman just as consistently on the other hand.
