any Portis believers?

Postby northcuttfan » Thu Aug 02, 2007 1:29 pm

after betts got to take advantage of a great line and a gelling saunders plan my buddy portis had to sit out with an injury.. but before when he played and when the offence wasnt even totally gelling yet he was putting up top 10 numbers and i expect him to come back and take advantage of what betts got to run with last year even as betts will get carries portis will get the good helpings and heck almost all running backs have to share the load even lt he let turner have 80 carries.. so im looking at getting a steal in the 2nd round with 1,400 14 td's from portis

I believe that if Portis is 100% healthy he's going to still get a majority of carries and end up with somewhere around 1300/10. However, since he's experiencing pain right now I'm a little worried about him. This could further reduce his workload during the season.

Right now I'm not so sure I would take Portis in the 2nd round. If we're down to that few RBs there's going to be some steals at WR. I can wait for a less risky back to take in the 3rd round.

My main concern for Portis is injury. If healthy he could easily put up top 10 numbers...but I don't trust him to stay fully healthy. And I think the Redskins will try to keep him relatively healthy so I see a good chunk going to Betts. I'm not sure how much the Redskins are going to run this year...But I think Betts gets 240 touches (not carries).
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
