Re: The Rock

Can we have one week without a "replace Portis" debate?

Re: The Rock

glad we didnt cut him in preseason...

Question though...what do you guys think about Betts and this off-season...isn't he a free agent this year??

Do you think we make a move to resign him...or just save the cap room...let him leave...and move on with portis, rock, and nemo?

Re: The Rock

Keep Portis and Rock as the running backs and I'm sure they could get something if they attemted to trade Betts. Maybe a draft pick or a D-lineman.

Re: The Rock

but isnt betts a free agent at the end of the year?...how can you trade him if he is a free agent...?

Would it be by placing one of those tenders on him...(by the way can someone explain to me...the whole free agent tender thing?...From what i understand...there are three levels of tenders. The team pays a certain amount...depending which tender it is...and then if the guys signs with another team then that team has to relinquish a pick or something???)

Re: The Rock

They can't trade Betts because his contract is up after the season. I still like betts, but if we don't resign him, i think we are in a great position with cartwright backing him up.

One reason i like Portis is because of his break away speed. Remember that 52 yard run by Cartwright today? If that had been Portis it would've been a touchdown. I think that Portis could pick his holes more wisely though. I've seen it in the past where there are wide open running lanes, but Portis chooses to run into the pile instead of cutting across. I hope Portis stays in washington for the rest of his career.

Re: The Rock

I don't think there's any chance that Rock could carry the load for this team. When Spurrier tried to give him some carries he got hurt. Whenever Betts gets a bunch of carries he gets hurt.

Those two look good because they're change of pace backs. Did we want to replace Stephen Davis with Ki Jana Carter? No. You need guys like them to come in and change the pace. They're not much different from Tatum Bell or Ron Dayne, but Denver still starts Mike Anderson. Just like when Trung was in St. Louis, he would break some big ones, but the better back started the game.

The better back starts the game in this offense. What Joe Gibbs needs to do is come up with effective ways to use all of them while still featuring Portis.

I agree 100%. Rock is a very good change-up back, but he's not a starter.

Re: The Rock

Any RB who can score on his first carry against the Chargers and bust a 48 yarder against the Rams may not be a starter, but he is a playmaker. Rock was visibly upset after his run because he was called to the sidelines. Portis was stuffed and never had a chance to score. We should have scored on that play rather than kick a field goal. Rock is a downhill RB who can break tackles and hit the sidelines with exceptional speed. Portis is not 100% in the fourth quarter which hurts the running game. Rock should get the ball more as a change-up RB to compliment Portis and change the pace the running game.
