Because Clinton Portis has rushed for 6400 plus yards and 65 TD's in 5 years and is a better running back.
I throw it back at you why dont the Chargers release LT if Turner is so good. Its a dumb question.
Fact is Betts has done things that Turner has yet too do. If you read my posts I have said that Turner has all the potential in the world and I believe he is more talented but what has he proved, or should I say been allowed to prove. The answer is nothing.
Right now it is all speculation he has just 157 career carries and 7 receptions in 43 games, that averages less than 4 touches a game. I'm not doubting the talent, I am speculating what he will do when he has to carry 250-300 times a year.
Before last year we said the same things about Betts, he stepped up in almost every way. I think Turner will do the same and more but until he does we don't know.
