Re: postgame comments from Portis

His comments didn't bother me at all. Of course he was frustrated and I understand. I just hope he's 100% healthy come week 1.

yeah i guess i am not a fan.

He basically said the coaches should have taken him out before the first series was over. If he meant what it sounded like he said. = dumb comment. No one is saying he isn't the face of the team, or the most dedicated. That makes no difference here. I don't understand why his standing on this team makes a difference on his comments. He said what he said. It was stupid. If anyother player said the same thing it would be stupid. Again, he should have been more clear. If he is putting this AT ALL on THIS coaching staff he messed up. Doesn't mean us supposed fans are going to get off this band wagon or his.

But everyone has their opinions no need to say people aren't fans here. For what it is worth, no offense taken here.

Re: postgame comments from Portis

I've got to agree with The BSB on this one. It sucks when anyone gets hurt in the preseason or in practice, but Portis wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary when he hurt himself. It was still the first series, and he'd only touched the ball once or twice. I think most of us thought he'd be in for the second series too if he hadn't gotten hurt, especially since he's playing in a new offense.

I understand that it must be very hard for the players to go through all these preseason games and they probably should cut at least one of them, but that doesn't mean the chance of getting injured goes away. Portis said it himself last night, a player can get hurt at anytime, anywhere, and that's just part of the game.

Re: postgame comments from Portis

Well if the owners and coaches are not going to play the starters for at least a portion of the time during the preseason, why should I as a season ticket holder be required to pay full fare to watch this mess. I am forced into buying my preseason games every year and go because I pay for the ticket. Now you have a player saying he shouldn't be playing. Well I shouldn't be paying. While it might be a crime to potentially lose a starter for openning day it is just as much of a crime to charge me to watch people practicing.

Re: postgame comments from Portis

Good point CRT, I've always hated that so much.

as a season ticket holder, are you going to the first game? Because the guy who's tickets I was buying just screwed me over, and I seem to be SOL. I'm just pointing that out there.

Re: postgame comments from Portis

i agree with giving him the benefit of the doubt for now; he seems to be frustrated..

regarding the INT, it looked to me like Brandon Lloyd went inside when he should have gone out. i didn't look at any replays but usually when a ball is thrown that poorly, it's miscommunication. what do you guys think?

we'll be fine come the start of the season.

pre-season is lame... except i guess to get some of the potential team-makers playing

For the record; When Stephen Davis came back from his ankle injury a few years back, he ran the ball on Washington's first offensive play of the preseason, gained 12 yards, and came out of the game. LaDainian Tomlinson runs an average of two plays in the first preseason game of each season. It's not unusual for a team to pull the starting tailback after only a few plays, especially if they're the unquestioned starter.

In his post game comments, Brunell said he was attempting to throw the ball out of bounds, and said he was mad at himself for not putting enough on it to get it out.

There are many, many examples of the opposite. Gibbs wasn't working portis to the bone or anything. He ran a different formation on every play on that drive by the way. They were just trying different things out. Portis ran one play. Gibbs/Saunders didn't want portis to be overworked so he gave him a single run. Its not like they would know he would try and become a wrestler and body slam a defender to the ground.

Coaches don't have to do it. If they choose to take someone out that is fine but the coaches weren't wreckless here. They didn't give portis 8 runs or a first quarter. They didn't make a mistake. What happened, happened. Coaches can't be to be put at fault for this. It was a series and to put this on a coach is dumb. I don't even know if that is what he was doing but if it was it was dumb. My opinion, my homer, band wagon, supposed fan opinion.

Your beef is with the owners, not the players. the problem is that as the offseason programs have changed, the model we use for the season has not. The preseason is just one long dress rehearsal, and to potentially lose someone as important as Portis in the first preseason game to accomodate fans makes no sense. What's the reward for Portis to be playing in the preseason? Portis has a point, he has nothing to prove, and that time could go to a rookie who is fighting to make the team. The rooks can't play with the vets on the field.

Re: postgame comments from Portis

A single drive. If the same thing happened to brunell and he said this i seriously think the opinions would be far different. They weren't appeasing the tens of thousands of redskin fans in cinci, they were doing what they felt was best for the team.

Rudi johnson ran it 3 times and stayed in 3 series under real pressure and hard tackles. I wonder what action the league should take against our old d-cordinator.


All i am saying is that portis wasn't put in a position that was out of the ordinary.

Re: postgame comments from Portis

I guess my beef is with the owners, but Portis should really shut up and understand that he is not above everyone else. My point is that if he is not going to play then why should I be forced into payinng full fare.

my cousin asked me if i wanted to go to the jets game next week. So i was like hell yeah. He goes, oh no, i can't use my tickets do you want to buy them, $75 each. I laughed real hard. I think the owners should lower prices for pre-season games. They won't though because they just package them together with the other tickets. Its sad.

Good point, and while it wasn't out of the ordinary it was unnecessary. Running backs take enough of a pounding in the regular season, adding meaningless time in the preseason just adds to it. Our star rb does not need to go a whole series in the first preseason game, the risk is just not worth the reward. The only reason the starters would play the first of four preseason games is to justify the high ticket prices.
