Re: Portis on 980

I wish I could say that this was unbelievable but this organization is screwed up beyond words.

When things are this messed up, you have to blame the top. It doesn't seem like the team will ever be functional while Snyder is in control.

I downloaded it to listen to tomorrow, but hopefully someone will do a quick synopsis before then.

Re: Portis on 980

First off, he's probably the only person on the planet saying why isn't John Eubanks getting more playing time.

Secondly, as I was telling Gmanc, isn't it interesting how both Portis and Arch said that Gibbs has always been accesible and a good person to speak to? Portis, in this interview, talks about Gibbs has an open door policy and at meetings encourages people to voice their complaints. But then all the players say everything is fine but then turn right around and speak "anonymously" to the press. Everyone expects Moss and Portis to speak up for them, but Gibbs wants to hear from everyone even if you're "just a holder on extra points"

It was kind of sad in a way, because it was almost like CP was saying leave the old man alone. Made Gibbs seem kind of fragile in a way.

Re: Portis on 980

This is a big part of what Portis said.Doesn't sound good guys and i am not blaming CP.

1. There are snitches in the franchise that are not true Redskins

2. The coaches don't talk to each other

3. He questions the coaching decisions (ie not pounding the ball when they're up 14-0)

4. Brandon Lloyd alienated him, even when he was a big fan of bringing him to the team.

5. He actively lobbied to keep Antonio Pierce and Ryan Clark on the team

Joe handled the running game, Al the passing game, the offense isn't on the same page.

He'd rather train by himself and most players feel the same way.. Too many OTAs and that's why players lose focus during the offseason..

The locker room is fractured by the 'un-named sources' and people back talking and back stabbing..

Players don't stand up and speak their minds but are ready to throw others under the bus. A serious lack of accountability among the players.

Ryan Clark was the epitome of a 'Core Redskin' but he's gone. Portis begged the Redskins to keep Clark and Pierce.. He said he didn't have a problem with AA but had a problem with paying him more to do what Clark was already doing..

Lloyd alienated his advocates (Portis was his biggest fan) and had the team lose faith in him due to his attitude..

Some offensive players and coaches don't talk to each other.. Portis doesn't talk to Saunders..

There's clearly a rift between him and Saunders based on how he was being used (or under used in the passing game) when he was in the games.

Portis doesn't like the side to side running game that Saunders was calling when he was in there and he wants to run the same plays that Betts was running, downhill, after Portis was hurt.

Campbell was restricted in the games he was in but the talent is there to be great, he needs to be let loose..

Great stuff, it's about 30 minutes to listen to the whole thing but if you have the time it's a great insight into what's really going on inside Redskin Park.

Re: Portis on 980

Anyone else notice that Clinton Portis talks in the 3rd person a lot? TAFKAS noticed it

As dgack often notes, only the truly great ones refer to themselves in the third person.

Re: Portis on 980

It's very obvious that this is one fucked up organization... dysfunctional as hell..Listen for yourself Clinton was clear and he made alot of sense. And Al Sauders is an idiot.... The coaches are all too big and have their own agenda's. Everything I heard completely expains what happened to the 'skins this year ....all the wasted talent... This made me sick.... But i have to applaud Clinton's Candor and Courage...The core players the redskins let go also makes alot of sense and how much that has affected the organization. Do youself a favor and listen to this..It's an eye opener. It was interesting to hear what he said about the downfield game instead of the side to side game.

Re: Portis on 980

Well, one thing that needs to be said is that Gibbs, Ggrilliamss and Saunders are all smart guys and proven winners in their respective specialties, but to the degree with which they work together and understand the parameters of the job they are being asked to do, depends on some pretty serious "come to Jesus" meetings between Gibbs and his subordinates, and between those guys and their field generals.

The more I read and hear about the way this team has been run, it's clear that totally janky communication is the major problem, and there isn't any kind of consistency to conveying what the gameplan is or how it's to be achieved.

I think this stuff can be solved, if egos can be checked and people are committed to doing the right things. Those are two big "if's", though.

Re: Portis on 980

First of all CP is the man. I love how the guy is straight up.He feels a certain way, you will hear it. Sounds like the team is full of cowards. He sees the talent we all do and if these guys could learn to communicate and stand up for what they want and each other they will be a force in the league. The way CP talked about Ryan Clark made me sick. He was the reason Sean Taylor played the way he did. I always knew Clark was key and they shouldn't have let him go. Kind of an eye opener but very good. Love CP and love my Skins.

Re: Portis on 980

I love Taylor but I am f*cking tired of hearing how Ryan Clark not being there hurt his play. He is a physiacl beast, is getting paid millions, and can play football. Time to be a professional and nut up Sean. This crap about how he needs Clark is ridiculous. Play the f*cking game they way you can you whiney bitch.
