Don't say Lacey can't bring production but I'm sick of it that we search the next Bettis in every Back.
We don't need to!!!
I agree with you. I don't want an exclusively power back like Bettis. I want a great back...period. What I'm saying is that the organization appears to want a big powerful back. In a perfect world, you find a runner that is big, powerful, elusive with speed, and the ability to catch and pass protect. Those guys are rare.
