If that's the case, I don't think it's not wise to go into the season with 2 pairs of busted legs. We need fresh ones. A late round draft pick or some UDFAs could help establish a rotation to get through the year.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

We need to have RB's that can do more than one thing. Maybe they can return punts & kickoffs as well.

Too many examples of rookie RBs having success in this league (and in Shanahan's offense) goes against the need to sign Parker or LT for that matter. We're stuck with Portis only because of his contract.
Because Betts will be 31 when the season starts, tore two ligaments in his knee (an ACL tear alone is a two year injury), was injury prone before that and he isn't cheap for a backup.

Rock has proven that he just isn't an effective runningback and he really has been whining the last year which isn't what you want out of a "team leader" and 3rd string back.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

Fast Willie Parker is not a bad pick up if we can get him for cheap .. i like the sounds of WP, Blount, and CP .. that's a 3 headed monster IMO .. HTTR .. can't wait for the DRAFT in primetime ...

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

Wouldnt be a bad pickup if we can get Willie Parker cheap but im willing to bet the entire redskins franchise both Parker AND Portis dont make it through the whole season uninjured. I hope we pick up Montario Hardesty in the draft. A near Portis clone except better work ethic and much younger. Think Clinton Portis's two 1500 yard seasons under the broncos. Hardesty spent college in a zone blocking scheme. 1 cut back. Portis, Parker, n Hardesty def a three headed monster.

Would be better off picking up Thomas Jones.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

I like the idea of bringing in a second back for when Portis starts sucking and/or gets hurt....I'm just not sure of Willie being the one. I feel good about Thomas Jones, but it would never happen...

How is Jones any better than Portis? Because he doesn't say dumb things? I would be in favor of Jones if it part of a culture change but I am not buying that he is an upgrade on the field.

Re: Portis/ Parker Combination?

I think a Portis/Parker platoon could be very interesting, assuming they are both healthy of course.

Exactly and having both of them will likely keep them both healthier and more likely to complete the season than either of them being a workhorse.
