thanks for the info smoot.

At this point then, no worries. I figure Portis is improving as a running back and is still young. And as far as im concerned he hasnt even reached his full potential by a long shot. AKA, Emmit better have a good year in Arizona because im looking forward to CP taking that record off teh wall.

I cannot remember entirly but when Davis emerged did we not use Sellars as a blocking FB/TE? It was only when Sellers left for the browns we utilised the single back packages more...

That was sweet. Portis is so quick when he hits the holes. He showed that he's willling to put his head and gain those tough yards also. I know some of you might disagree, but I think we got the better half of Portis/Bailey deal.

When he gets in the open field he's gone, he's just too shifty and quick to bring down. He breaks ankles left and right.

Also, if you notice he shows some nice power on the short TD plunge, and he also throws a nice cut block on Plummer's TD pass.

I did notice that. He took that guy out. Can't wait for Aug 9th. I don't care if it's two carries. He can break it at any point.

I saw the block, and then I saw him running over to congratulate Draughons in the end zone. That shows me he's a team first guy willing to do whatever to win.

Most of Portis' big runs were up the middle, did u see the move he put on the safety on his last big run? One cut and then it was all speed. Can't wait for his first big run as a Skin.

[QUOTE=Mattyk72]Betts has the skills, BUT he's got a long way to go before we can compare him to Stephen Davis."
