Default Betts or Turner

Ladell Betts of the Redskins and Michael Turner of the Chargers (for now) are maybe the two biggest names for back-up runers. If the two players were both feature backs who do you think would have the better stats?

IMO I think it would be Michael Turner. He averaged 6 yards a carry last year.

Betts is overrated, so Turner.

Actually, I think Betts is underrated by many, including Redskins fans. That being said, Betts has the higher floor, but Turner has the bigger upside, so the nod is to Turner in the poll.

We have already seen what Betts can do as a starter so I think he would be a better featured back.

I'd want Betts.

Bett's first 10 games last season he compiled:
1. 8 atts. 22 yds, 3 rec. 31 yds.
2. 11 atts. 40 yds, 7 rec. 57 yds
3. 16 atts. 124 yds, 3 rec. 27 yds
4. 11 atts. 37 yds
5. 1 att
6. 2 att
7. 10 atts. 52 yds, 5 rec. 41 yards
8. 3 atts.
9. 20 atts. 83 yds,
10. 7 atts. 18 yds.

Not good at all, but decent for a number 2 running back. Then he took over. This is what he compiled the last 6 games.

104, 155, 171, 119, 129, 92. with approx 200 receiving yards.



Betts.

I like Turner, but I don't know hod he would do carrying the load. Betts proved he can, even on a ****** team

I would say Betts because he has been seen more by me and he always produces great #s when portis is injured

It's funny how so many redskins fans aren't big fans of Betts. I've been on other boards where Skins fans themselves trash Betts. I think Betts is one of the main reasons why Skins fans can have some hope for 2007-2008. Simply put, this time, if POrtis goes down, you know Betts can produce. And a healthy Portis gets additional rest now with Betts there, and it protects Jason Campbell.

I'd take Betts any day. He hits the hole extremely fast and has great burst speed. He's nothing more than a solid backup though, and I think part of the reason that he ran so well is that our line was making the biggest holes ever. Betts is a nice complementary back to Portis, Turner just seems to pickup LT's scraps when hes taking a breather.

The only problems that I had with Betts was that he did not seem to find the endzone often (I think he only had like two or three TDs). He also has a fumble problem which costs us the St Louis game, but that can be fixed.

How does that make any sense? That's like saying that your girlfriend gives the best head because you've seen her perform, but little did you know that the girl you saw over at Baskin Robbins the other day "practicing" on a ice cream cone can actually do better. You've gotta base your opinion on something more meaningful than whether or not you've seen the guy in a feature role.

Well stats don't mean everything....

I would want Turner on my team and he would be a more effective player imo, but Betts has proven that he can be a workhorse and rack up a lot of yardage, so it would definitely be close stats-wise.

The reason why Turners YPC were so high was because the best RB in the NFL tired the defense out.

Turner gets the hype Ladell is the better back, everyone knows I am the biggest Betts hater but most of it is because I love Portis and a little because our line was very underrated last year and was top 5 but Betts is an excellent receiving back he had 53 catches for 445 yards last year, also while Turner's 6.3 ypc is impressive a lot of it was on garbage yards on throwing downs and when the defense was winded from trying to get LT. He only had 80 carries. I'd take Betts 4.7 ypc on 245 carries more than 3 times as many carries as Turner who had a 6.3 ypc average.

I understand why the Broncos wanted Betts when the possible Dre Bly trade was being discussed because with his downhill style of running Ladell Betts would get 1,500+ yards on the Broncos.

I think Ladell Betts has shown that he can pile some stats over the course of a season. As for Michael Turner, he hasn't really shown that he can take a beating through a whole game, much less throughout a whole season.
