all effort, all the time: Clinton Portis

Great article on Portis, you just can't say enough about this guy and what he does away from the ball.

Fast approaching John Riggins and Darrell Green as one of my favorite Redskins of all-time.

LOVE the attitude, LOVE the hustle.

It ain't the size of the dog in the fight, it's whether or not Portis is on your side.

He plays football the way it's meant to be played. A true Redskin for the ages. A bona-fide grade-A Superstar. He should stay away from doing voices, though.

He's the kind of guy that the Redskins should NEVER let get away.

After two plus years, I'm definitely ready to say we got the better end of the Champ Bailey deal, even considering we gave up the 2nd rounder.

I'd like to think to that by now he's quieted all the critics who dismissed him as merely a beneficiary of the Denver system

What he did on that first TD by Moss was amazing, especially when he took out Henderson. He's the heart and soul of this team.

Re: all effort, all the time: Clinton Portis

This is why I gave him the game ball. Baller indeed.

And boy is he fast! He looked faster than Moss.

Re: all effort, all the time: Clinton Portis

You know it is funny, I have a son who just turned nine and plays pop-warner football. I have never been a fan of trying to show him modern athletes as role models. But yesterday I shared with him the "Dolimite Jenkins" clip and he has watched Clinton play for the Skins with me many times and he said to me.
"You know what Dad? Clinton seems to really just want to be happy and do the best he can on every play even if he does not touch the ball" My son, playing on the D and O line has struggled with this and I think he now gets that it is about effort, not being the star. I have tried to explain this to him many times but I must say Clinton gets the message across thru his actions more effectively than my words.

Thanks Clinton for helping me teach a boy how to play the game, the right way.

Re: all effort, all the time: Clinton Portis

The thing that I love about CP is that he is so patient on the field... he takes the whole scenario in and puts his self in the best position to benefit the effort on the current play.

So nice to see a player in this day in age who can actually serve as a role model for kids. They're a dying breed.

Sounds to me like it's getting blown out of proportion. I don't see it as a big deal. Portis was told by Gibbs to get out of the game if he's not 100%. Gibbs has also told Portis in the past that we don't want you in there if you're tired - because Ladell can just go in. So Portis took himself out when he was tired.

If Saunders doesn't want that to happen, then I'm sure he'll talk to Portis about it and Portis will do as he's asked. He's not the kind of guy that will just do whatever he wants, ignoring the coach's wishes.

I think it's one of those things that gets cleared up very easily and won't be an issue.

I agree and the last time I checked Gibbs was the head coach and Saunders was not.

That's old news.

But just to comment, Gibbs has allowed CP this sort of freedom since he got here. Saunders is the new guy on the block and isn't used to this sort of thing. I'm sure they'll get something worked out.

Re: all effort, all the time: Clinton Portis

Props to CP! It's great that he's getting recognition about his off the ball skills--and I agree, those blocks on Santana's first TD were amazing.

He's now gained big yardage for Shanahan, Gibbs, and Saunders--"system back," my ass!

And he's a cool guy--those pressers are awesome, and he just has a positive attitude and style all the time.
