One thing that was great about SD was his ability to grind out yardage, and get stronger as a game wore on. This is a must in the NFC east. Until Portis proves he can control the game in this way, I'm going to say SD.

But if he can keep his 5-ypc average up in DC, Portis is the man and the deal is a great one, especailly given how very young he is.

PS Davis did have some heart-breaking fumbles!

Sd!

SD earned my respect! Portis hasn't put on a Redskins uni yet! Compare the two after an equal time in B&G, please!

Larry Brown Forever! 43 was the Man!
Riggo was right there as well, but slipped and was gone a year.

Portis. Davis was always close but I can never forgive him for coughing that ball up during the worst MNF game ever against the Cowpats.

I liked Davis for his heart and team spirit but we absolutely have to have a game breaker RB. Now we have one. Watch the O-Line love 2004.

The starting RB's in the NFC East last year were:

Tiki Barber
Troy Hambrick
Dung Candidate
Duce Staley

Besides Staley, none of these backs is really a hard-nosed, dependable, grind it out back...

Clinton Portis is ridiculously better than all the other backs in the NFC East, maybe even the whole NFC (exceptions are maybe Green and Alexander).

Wasn't Buckhalter the starter for the Eagles?
Or maybe westbrook?

All I follow is the Skins so I had no idea who Portis was. Hopefully you are all correct and he'll be a Skins star for years to come. How does our OL compare to what he had in Denver though. Ours pretty much sucked last season. And I believe if Spurrier had kept Davis, he might still be our coach now and we'd have made the playoffs, like Carolina did with a lot of help from SD. Everyone also keeps talking about Portis' speed and game breaking ability. The same was said last season about Canidate. Without a good OL Portis may have his problems too. I certainly hope not though. With a great RB to balance our attack we should go far!!!

I loved Davis, especially since we drafted and cultivated him and watching him break out was really satisfying ... but Portis is better.

Portis is better. He's the fastest back in football and yet he's still surprisingly powerful. Also, remember Betts. Now clearly he's not even close to being on the same level as these other guys but he can really pound the ball. He played well last year when he was healthy and Spurrier decided to give him the ball. The point I'm trying to make is that he'll complement Portis perfectly. Remember, Gibbs loved having two good backs as much as he liked having two good QBs. Now you have arguably the biggest homerun threat coming out of the backfield and a back to convert on third and short. I believe that Betts' presence can only make Portis that much better.

Where are you located, Mexskins? I spent some time exploring Guadalajara, Ajijic and San Miguel de Allende last summer, really fell hard for that beautiful country, the friendly people, looking forward to going back, maybe living down there parttime someday. Hail from San Francisco. We Skins fans are all over the globe, aren't we?

Betts Healthy and Spurrier giving him the ball? That happened for one quarter in game 5?

Spurrier running and Betts healthy were both rare.
