Updated Title: Will Portis Shine Again in a West Coast Offense?
 
Now i know i made some dumb posts. But i think i have to really start thinking what i'm doing. Any ways i really believe that Clinton can explode this year.

If many didn't see the interview with Clinton Portis (3 days ) before our lil match with Seattle , he said he was forced to be a Joe Gibbs RB.

"Heres the interview''.

"Who is Clinton Portis"" thats what the video is called.
[url=http://www.nfl.com/videos]NFL Video Galleries[/url]

Ever since hes been here ,he was force from being a 206-210 to a 223-225 pound RB. He didn't make alot of long runs and every year it decreased . Now i have to say their was good chances he could of made a big run but he never had the speed to do that.


But now that Gibbs is gone i herd some recent stuff that Portis is back at 210 and less. Now i don't know if thats really true but i have to say i really never belived that Portis could catch up with Laron Landry...and Landry ran on draft day ,as if it was Chad Johnson speed out their.


But after all this paragraph. Portis back to being super fast,WCO,healthy OL could =

1600 yards- 302 carriers- 14 TD
321 Catching yards-1 TD catch
Pro-bowl


FYI Jim Zorn has said that Portis will be an every down play making RB which means he'll see an avg of maybe 20 or more rushing yards.


Would love to see Portis hit alot of yards this year. Hes a caring guy and loves to be a Redskins. I think if he puts up good numbers like he has , he can probably become one of our best RB's ever or perhaps the best RB we ever had.

HTTR hail to Clinton.

I hope he does return to form. If we have that Broncos Portis then we can be the best rushing team in the league. Portis was doing it all in Denver. And if that's true that Portis is down to 210lbs, I think he'll have that type of year. Hopefully, Zorn wants to use him as he used Alexander back in 2005 (I think).

we'll see. Im not sure if it's his speed, or his open field elusiveness that's the issue. Maybe his weight had something to do with that, but who knows...

I think we have a shot at seeing some explosiveness this year, moreso than last, though.

He looked slower last year. But this year he shouldn't be as slow so hopefully he breaks a big long run for us this year.

I've also seen him run right into tacklers, when they couldve been avoided in the secondary. a back as physical as he is should be able to break past a safety from time to time.

Yeah, Portis has totally sucked ever since he came to Washington (SARCASM) :doh:

Yet another thread that makes a mockery of the tag line [I]"Discussion for the Knowledgeable Fan"[/I]

wow, im not sure anything here merited all that... thanks for your imput, though.

while i agree this isn't the "Thread of the Year", the running game in which portis thrived most was in denver, in a different scheme. I wasn't aware of the weight difference so i appreciated the read as a different take on our running game this coming year; focusing on the runner himself instead of just the change in offense.

sorry to have bothered you.

I feel as if as Portis stays healthy, this scheme fits him much better. Something about the Gibbs system with portis seemed like shoving a round peg and a square hole. I love Portis, think he's a talented back. But we need to try to get him on the corner, and for christs sake -- the run game is now created with the passing game. Hopefully a WCO can help get the seemingly 32 people that were standing in the box every play to back out a bit.

these off season threads are just too painful for me.

I believe the west coast blocking scheme (zone blocking) will benifit Portis' style of running. Atleast it did in Denver.

As did playing against some of the suckiest defenses twice a year helped (oakland and KC, San Diego let Peterson run for nearly 300 yards last year)

Yea but really now Peterson was getting shutdown the last 3 games. Peterson had a year were every one saying 1600 yards but....they said that with Gore,LJ,Stevenson, but all never happend.


I think Portis well run all over any team if hes healthy, but every time i saw him the OL was the problem at first.

I thought that I heard Zorn say the running scheme is going to be the same as it was last year.He is only changing the passing schemes.So if you expect Portis to come back to "form", it will come from his and the o-lines health and not a change in scheme.

Honestly, as much as I would love to see it, I don't think your going to ever see a Clinton Portis that was as good as he was on the Broncos. I'm telling you, if he had stayed on the Broncos he would be on track for a HOF career. As much as I love him, the Skins kind of ruined his career.
