he doesnt hit the holes nearly as hard as rock or betts.

Yeah. Running into your own guys kinda poses a problem when you're trying to gain yards.

I've yet to see the improvement. We still have the same whopping 17 points.

I agree. Portis has lost more than a few steps. We are better off with Betts and Cartwright.

Really? You didn't see those two drives when the passing game was much better because we were actually running the ball? I think the problem is that our defense didn't come to play.

Well at least on this game I would lay the blame on the defense not being able to hold up and for having game injuries catch up at the end.

Since he hosed up Big Mike with the "no block" stuff to the coaches, Sellers won't "tow" him through the line anymore......

We've talked a lot about Portis and the various problems he presents, but with all the other many thing going wrong with this team he's just a small portion. Discipline is a serious issue with this team.

I liked how quickly/hard the holes were hit today

also, the reads on the blocking or lack thereof seemed better

Portis runs unenthused

In my opinion, when you excuse problems, you become one.

Funny that you mention discipline because Portis' problem is discipline too. He doesn't practice, he has had run-ins with head coaches (both Gibbs and Zorn), and this year he called out Sellers (correctly, but it is still wrong). He has a direct line to the owner, and that seems to allow him to do whatever he wants.

Take away that 74 yard run, and Portis is done this year. He hasn't done one damn thing worth a damn. He's given us some really good years, but he's done. I don't even see him laying out blitzers like he used to.

Losing two steps in the NFL is two too many. Trade him or bench him. Rock and Betts were much better and ran much harder.

We're too financially vested in him to do either of those. The only we can hope for is that the CBA doesn't get signed and we go into an uncapped year where we can release players with no ill effect.

I don't think this is a complete reflection on Portis's ability. From the looks of it we made adjustments at half and didn't give up on the run. Atlanta seemed prepared for some pass heavy offense so we could get back into the game.

We did manage to run better in the 2nd half though. I can't completely put that on Portis given the circumstances.
