Betts or Watson?

Postby ii7-V7 » Mon Jan 19, 2004 11:11 am

If you could turn back time and go back to a place where we had two young hopeful RB's on our team, knowing what you know now, who would you take? LAdell Betts or Kenny Watson?

hindsight being 20/20 - probably Watson

If I could turn back time, I probably still would have taken Betts, but if I had to look back on it and pick, I would go with kenny Watson, of course.

Betts. No question. He may never develop but, at this point at least, he's got a much greater upside. He's just as good as Watson is now and has the potential to one day be a lot better.

Watson was a nice player for one season, but he's never going to be anything more than a journeyman anyway. I had no problem with going with Betts instead. For that matter, I didn't object to Sultan McCullough.

What do you base this observation on? His draft position?

Although I like Trung, Betts and Watson had more of a one, two punch in the previous year. :shock:

Agreed. I would have kept Betts AND Watson and never picked up Trung.

I belive Watson is more of a Joe Gibbs back than Betts, He's a north/south runner who hits the hole, and with the Buges back in town "the hole" just got alot bigger.

After considering what Boss said about "I gotta boo boo" Betts, I'm goin' with Watson.

If I could turn back time, Steven Davis would still be wearing Burgandy and gold... But oh well :roll:

I'll wait and see what Coach thinks.
Watson gets my vote over Trung Canidate only because he didn't fit in Spurrier's system.
I use the Stephen Davis model for comparision, since he didn't fit either. 1,500 yards this season, and still counting...
I brought up McCullough in an earlier thread, but so many people said he was too small. Me ? I'm not so sure.
