Portis Number Controversy Solved, #35?
"One minor drama during Gibbs's first minicamp was Clinton Portis's pursuit of jersey No. 26 from safety Ifeanyi Ohalete. Portis, who signed an eight-year, $50 million contract with the Redskins, considered offering Ohalete money before challenging the safety to a boxing match. Portis will wear No. 35 unless he can change Ohalete's mind."

Sean Taylor #36.. didn't Timmy Smith retire that? haha
here's the list of all the new players' tentative numbers... Portis' (#35) could change and Thrash's (#3) definitely will...

I never thought about before but I am suprised we don't have a few more officially retired numbers. I really would have thought Theismann, Riggins, and Monk's number would already have been "officially" retired.
|skinsguy ||04-30-2004 10:00 AM |
I agree...at least Riggins and Monks. Yeah..I'm also going to say JT as well, because I feel like since he ended his career with that leg injury, we haven't had a QB like him since.

Oahlete and Portis: Enough bitching. Start boxing.

Give Timmy some slack he won us a Super Bowl. lol I dont know about retiring numbers. I mean if you retire all the greats you eventually wont have but a handful of numbers. Granted just no one can wear 44, 7, 81 etc. But I still like to see the numbers out their and kind of relive the glory days. Take 17 it has been a while since have seen that out on the field (i think). It was good to see it out even if it was Wurfell. Maybe they could retire the jerseys and freeze the number for 10-20 years. Ok now you can throw bricks at me.

Since teams change uniform designs about as often as players change underwear, they should retire players uniforms with their numbers on it but allow new uniform designs with the same number to be used.
The current Skins' uniform with a #44 on it does not look like the one Riggins wore in the early 80s. So hang up a picture of Riggins' #44 in the Ring of Honor but let someone else wear #44 on the field now.
BTW, did you see that John Elway said he would be glad to let Tatum Bell wear #7 for the Broncos next year. The price is that Bell needs to put up 2000 yards and 25 TDs this year. That would not be a bad deal for the Broncos! Maybe Gibbs should set really outrageous goals for players to be allowed to wear special numbers?

According to the Washington Post, sounds like Gibbs is going to be asking some of his former players if they'll "unretire" their "unofficially retired" numbers

The former players should ask that any player whom wanted to wear the numbers has to put some money towards a favorite charity. Something close to the amount of what a player would pay to get a number from a guy still on the roster.

He can wear #6 for minicamps and practice but for games he's going to have to wear something else.
