Default Shanny cuts Ladell Betts and 9 others

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-are-tendered/

My Redskins friends are in full meltdown mode as Betts has a larger cult following among their fan base than Hillis does ours. My buddy just texted me: "Shanahan is ****ing up our team! He's making us Denver East and killing the Skins!" Now how funny is that.

Well he's probably waiting for McD to cut Hillis so he can snag him. And Peyton Hillis will make em forget Betts.

That's actually surprising given that Betts has outplayed Portis for a few years now. I can see why he has a following there since he's been a backup to diva child and consistently performing better when given the chance.

I'm a little surprised he cut Betts and Smoot. Did they have bad cap numbers or something?

Maybe Smoot didn't send Shanny a Love boat invite.

It will be kinda cool cause now I can go over to a skins board, do a find and replace with Betts/Hillis, and pretend I'm reading the OM circa last fall.

I haven't been here since the end of the season... Is that crap still going on?

But, but, but... Shanny doesn't make mistakes! Only young inexperienced coaches like McPoopypants makes stupid moves like this!

Color me impressed when the skins bring in Mustard for every other week. Or Patrick Hape for that matter.

Funny how their fans are angry that he's doing exactly what McD did here. Both franchises will probably be better off in the long run.

The interesting thing is many of their fans are as diluted about where the 2009 Redskins were as some of our fans about where the 2008 Broncos were.

I like Betts stats from each game last year. -1, 13, 2, -1, 7, 1, 70, 114, and 5. That 114 was a b**** Anyways he will be 31 to start the season and with the other RB's out there like Jones, LT, Westbrook, and Lewis I think the Redskins can find a back better then Betts as a back up.
