Portis will have 2,000 all purpose yards in 2006

OK. I didn't want to get caught up in the Ramsey/Collins/Campbell/Brunnell debate......AGAIN. So, surprisngly Im just gonna act like it doesn't exist, Im just going to start a positive thread for once.

With the new receivers, Portis will set new career highs for all purpose yards, guaranteed! Picture this, you run the opponents defense, and out come the Skins with 3 wideouts: Moss, LLoyd, Randle El. Whatcha gonna do? You can't go into man to man coverage with that speed. So, you have to bring your safeties over to help out, which means teams can't put 8 men in the box to stop Portis. Throw in Cooley and it creates additional problems. If Cooley goes out, and the outside LB follows, who will cover Portis if he comes out of the backfield just like Priest Holmes. This is going to be very, very fun to watch.

I definitely agree. Like I said in a couple other threads I think Portis will be league MVP. His numbers are going to be insane in 2006.

Re: Portis will have 2,000 all purpose yards in 2006

I do think our O is going to be pretty versatile. I am interested in seeing which offense we are going to put in. Gibbs has said the offense will be the same with some minor changes here and there. Saunders will be calling the plays, but they will be from Gibbs playbook. They are probably going to add more 3 to 4 receiver sets, 1 back sets, maybe employee to split backs behind the QB. I will be interesting. Before I go predicting any MVP awards, I just want to see us be consistant with the ball. It will be nice for a change to expect to score, than to be suprised when we do score.

more than anything i think we'll be seeing portis as a receiver a whole lot. hes a GREAT receiver when he gets a DECENT pass thrown to him. brunell always seemed to throw crappy passes to portis where hed have to dive/jump up/etc.

Re: Portis will have 2,000 all purpose yards in 2006

I agree with all of you, Portis should have a huge year with other teams taking men out of the box, not only respecting, but fearing our wideouts.

***Does any one know how Randle-El and Lloyd are as blockers?

If Portis is the focal point of the O then he definitely could have a year of epic Redskin proportions or the offense gets spread around so much that 1500+ yds and 10+ TD's is going to be his trademark stats for the next 3 or 4 years.

I would take that kind of consistancy. I think our offense will allow Portis to find his own holes once he gets going because the D is going to be so spread out. I would love to see him average 5+ yards a carry and I really think he's going to. Can we start the season now?!?!?

I'm am so happy about all the stuff that's happened this offseason so far (and the draft hasn't even come yet). I am not really worried about team chemistry because I think the team is in capable hands with gibbs, williams and now saunders. I don't worry about too many cooks and all of that (coaches and skilled-offensive players) - if that is our biggest problem, that's a problem any team would love to have. I really can't complain about too much of what has happened with the team. I really believe that other teams are worried which they should be.

Re: Portis will have 2,000 all purpose yards in 2006

hmm...dont know if i think he will get 2,000 total. think about it like this. 4 good recievers, and an elite h-back. dont think portis will get more than 250 yards recieving. 1,750 yards rushing would be around what he would need. its possible, but we will see

That doesn't make too much sense.

I don't think we're giving Saunders control of the offense with the caveat that he uses Gibbs' playbook only.

Saunders was brought here for his offense, not simply to be a playcaller of Gibbs' system.

There are alot of similarities though between the two that will help ease the transition.
