Why do people think of ONE injury and that automatically makes them injury prone? I just don't understand its happening more and more on these boards, Portis is far from injury prone and if he is he plays through it like a player whos being paid to play the game should do. And playing through those injuries hasn't affected his stats as, again outside of 06-07, hes fallen under 1300 rush yards ONCE and hovers around the 1700-1800 total yardage year in year out. That was a just about a bonehead comment to make that Betts would get the most PT because of a Portis injury.
None of the runningbacks he menionted are worth picking up IMO. If I was to have any of them, I would rather have Betts.

Or better yet I would go after Marshawn Lynch, of course everyone knows about the suspension so the owner may have dropped his value down. More so tho I would look the rosters over and pick out the 2 teams that have A. the Weakest QB situation or B. the Weakest TE situation as those will be the 2 squads that will be more able to trade for what your offering...
I don't know what idiot would trade Ronnie Brown, Kevin Smith or Ryan Grant type player for Big Ben + Clark or Shockey. Why would they give up their RB2 for a BACKUP quarterback and a TE (the difference between TEs isn't worth the difference or value in the decrease at the RB position).
You're trade offer or idea was a much more, how'd you put, bonehead of a statement than mine. Good day.
