Perhaps Joe is laying down his usual subterfuge, deception, and skullduggery. If not, that really blows!

Re: Portis Downgraded to Doubtful Against Dallas

I'm not sure if I believe this. The past two years we have had players unable to pratice but was ready for game day. They may have already been listed as douptful but they played. He is playing mind game with the Cowboys if you ask me. Read what Gibbs realy said in that article.

Asked if he was ruling Portis out for Sunday's game, Gibbs replied: "Well, I think if a guy doesn't practice, he's not going to play. So we'll downgrade him." Gibbs added: "He'll probably tell me that he can play on game day. But he didn't practice, so we'll move him down accordingly."

He's playing. No way he doesn't. Portis looked strong against Minny and will be good to go.

I agree! Gibb's is playing head games with the Tuna and Portis.

Not a game, not the game that Portis busts his ass for every week...were talkin about practice man...how silly is that...practice?

Seriously, if Portis says he can play, let him play and hold him out against Houston if you want. We're staring 0-2 right in the face, we need Clinton Portis in the game to make sure that dosent happen. Our offense is completley different with him in there, it was so much better Monday Night. I dont for one second think Duckett or Betts can do the job Portis can in there. Play him this week if he says he can go, and hold him out against the Texans.

Re: Portis Downgraded to Doubtful Against Dallas

Sounds like the downgrade may be just a technicality more than anything. If a player doesn't practice he's downgraded. Simple as that. I still think we'll see him sunday night, but I'd like to see Duckett get some touches too.

Hopefully we can bring him in for garbage time to salt away the clock.

Hate to say it but I think we can survive without Portis for a week or two.

I'd much rather have Springs or Prioleau back.

Re: Portis Downgraded to Doubtful Against Dallas

I think Joe is trying to motivate Clinton rather than trying to deceive the competition. Joe knows Clinton can tough it out. Just wants to see him back in practice. Clinton, however, is smart enough to smell what Joe is cooking up. Maybe a little like the TO/Tuna game.

Re: Portis Downgraded to Doubtful Against Dallas

I agree with MJG - I don't get why he was in there at all if he wasn't 100%. It's not like we're lacking for RBs right now, and if he can't go full tilt, then he's not that much better an option than the rest of the group. Plus, the risk of prolonging the injury is heightened.

Re: Portis Downgraded to Doubtful Against Dallas

what this means for all of you who don't understand this game is that you just became even more one dimensional than before. 4 FG's? Against the Vikings? Tsk tsk, gonna be a sad day in D.C. come Monday. When that weird albino monkey Williams tries to blitz the crap out of Bledsoe again like last time, we'll just keep dumping it over the middle to T.O. and let him do his thing.

and tell me genius, just what is this game you refer to? Did Parcells ever say T.O. wouldn't be playing? No, he didn't. So what the hell are you talking about? Get a clue.
