Official "Who Gets #26?" Thread
 
Now with Sean Taylor on board, seems this question will take on a whole new life. May as well set up a single thread in which to beat it to death!

;)

For the record, I think it is Iffy's as long as he's on the roster.

Or maybe a three way, last-man-standing grudge match!

Iffy get's it.

SKINSnCANES 04-24-2004 02:57 PM

Iffy might not even be here. He will make a great backup, but as a backup he should get a new contract and a new number.

If Iffys there, he should get it, if hes cut, then Portis. Sorry Sean, I love you but your third on the order cause your a rookie

azskinsfan2 04-24-2004 04:47 PM

I voted for Portis because he's gonna be the main man this season. Tradition wise it is Iffy's but I don't think he'll be a starter now. If he does stay on the team I think he'd give it up for Portis. Taylor is a rookie, he'll have to wait his turn to get his choice!!

SKINSnCANES 04-24-2004 04:53 PM

Portis and Taylor played together, and Portis wore number 12. I guess hes not allowed to wear number 12 in the NFL. Portis was there first, so 26 wasnt his choice.
Can Portis wear 12? or does a QB have to wear that.

Iffy is not under contract, so technically, I think that #26 is available.

SKINSnCANES 04-24-2004 05:00 PM

He doesnt have a contract for next year but still might be under contract for the time being. We have the rights for him at minimum... I guess we'll see when jerseys go on sale. Id be pissed if I buy one and they change numbers.

I don't think that there is any hard fast rule about the number aguy wears, just tradition. If there was a rule how can K. Johnson wear #19?

Dave Butz Baby! 04-24-2004 06:06 PM

Here's what the NFL has mandated as the official system for jersey number/position. Listed is the primary range and then a secondary range for some positions. The league changed the rule this year that allows a player to pick a number from either range, where it used to be that a secondary number could only be picked if a number in the primary range wasn't available.

QB, P, K: 1-19
RB, DB: 20-49
LB: 50-59 (90-99)
C: 50-59 (60-79)
G, T: 60-79
WR: 80-89 (10-19)
TE: 80-89
DL: 60-79 (90-99)

There are rules on the numbers guys can wear. Until this year, receivers were not allowed to wear a number in the teens unless all the numbers in the 80's were in use. The rule was changed for the upcoming year but I am not sure how Keyshawn got away with it.

I don't know all the rules but I know they apply to defense, or at least they did at one time. When Brian Bosworth came into the league he wanted to where his college number, 40, but wasn't allowed to, because it's not a number permitted for linebackers, so he wrote "40" on his shoes. (Don't ask me why I remember this bit of trivia, I just do)

Joe don't tell me you were a B.B. fan. You went one of those guys with a mullet like his back in the day, were ya?

Iffy might not even be here much longer, Portis will get #26.
