Portis speaks!!!

washingtonpost.com - nation, world, technology and Washington area news and headlines Portis said today that he felt 75% and was looking at the long haul. Did not feel he would be 100% until a few tough practices.

Looks bad for monday night I think.

Re: Portis speaks!!!

Not worried. He may be the face and identity of the Offense but they will run circles around the Vikings even without him. I dont like how Brad Johnson is so thoughful of his passes, causing TO's will be hard to come by b/c he is so precise and all the passes are short gainers. Still Defense will get us by and set up the offense greatly.

Re: Portis speaks!!!

if Gibbs will clear anybody to play w/out practicing, it would be Portis. I wouldn't be surprised if he plays on a last min. decision.

Re: Portis speaks!!!

As great as Portis is, it won't take a running back of his caliber to win this football game. Before the pre-season Betts was being called one of the best back-up RB's in the league. Pre-season games sort of altered that depiction but at least he has shown enough ability in the past to run with the ball (2004 Minnesota game at FedEx).

I predict a good solid three quarters out of him with a few backfield passes for nice yardage. Duckett will wear the Yikes! down in the fourth to seal the victory. Oh yeah, Brunell throws three bombs to Moss, Lloyd and Patten/Cooley.

HTTR, mu'uh fu'uhs! <---that can be edited if anyone wants.

Re: Portis speaks!!!

Having Kevin Williams and Pat Williams in the middle of a line doesn't bode well for any running back in the NFL. Especially not Ladell Betts. The Skins might have more trouble than everyone thinks if he has to start this game.

That said, I don't know if the Vikes can put ANY points on the board. They've looked really bad running the new offense in the preseason...kinda sounds like the Skins? Well, the Vikes don't have the weapons around their quarterback the way the Redskins do. The Skins also have the better D, but I just don't think this one is a hands down win.

Re: Portis speaks!!!

Yea, I agree that we should save him for the Cowboys game, let him fully heal. On another note, I think y'all are really underestimating the Vikings. We may be surprised with the kind of game they give us.

Re: Portis speaks!!!

Let CP rest, I have total faith in Betts. True though that we shouldn't underestimate the Vikes.
