Betts or Canidate

Postby AF » Fri Sep 05, 2003 4:23 am

OK, first of all can I just say what the hell is every commentator so high on Betts for all of the sudden? "If Betts isn't starting next week there's something wrong". Ummmm, why's that? Betts did nothing last night that Canidate didn't do except get nearly twice as many carries. As a matter of fact, Canidate had more yards per carry and had 3 key runs in the 4th qrt (one called back for holding), 8yds, 5yds (1st down) and 8yds (holding). That drive stalled but it wasn't because Canidate couldn't move the ball for them. Then Betts comes in for the final drive and gets one 8yd or so run after Ramsey ran into FG range and everybody has a hard-on for him now. Sorry, I really wasn't impressed with either back and if anybody should start next week it should be Canidate because in my eyes Betts didn't win the job last night because he didn't out play Canidate.

What do you guys think?

I think you are a mad Canidate owner.

Nobody should have went in thinking either guy was a lock to be the feature back. Tonight they went with the battering ram Betts. Other nights they may choose Canidate running it outside and dumping screen passes.

Neither will likely suffer thru the 'musical QB/WR/RB' offense that Spurrier ran last year. I think he realized how foolish he looked and will use both guys. Some games Betts will get more touches, other Canidate will. One guy may step forward, but nobody won or lost their starting jobs based on what happened.

What we saw was both #2 RB's looking like they will be getting regular carries. Betts may be 50/50 with Canidate. Jordan will be stealing more than short yardage and goal line carries as the season goes on.

I'm not upset, I just don't understand why everybody is so high on Betts. What's his face from ESPN said and I quote "If Betts isn't starting there's something wrong" All I really want to know is what the hell impressed him so much about Betts? Niether guy stood out at all in my mind from last night, they both just looked like average backs to me, nothing more nothing less. Besides, the only time Canidate would have a prayer of getting in my line-up would be during a bye week or god forbid somebody got hurt so at this point I'm really not worried about what he's doing but I would like to see some carries out of him incase someting happens.

Edit: It sure was nice to see some running out of the Redskins last night though after suffering through S.Davis as my #2 back last year :-t

I'm a Canidate owner also. What we need is somebody to Tanya Harding Bett's ass. :-)

Actually, I think both backs looked pretty good. More than that, I would have to say Washington's offensive line was the most responsible for Betts and Canidate's success. They created some holes that I could have run through. Washington is going to put up some serious yardage on the ground this year. Unfortunately it will probably be RBBC.

It will be interesting to see who will get the inside the 5 carries.

Either way..this is a nasty nasty predicament for owners.
