Your right and not sure what I was looking at last night. I'll make sure that I get your OK to weigh in next time.

Unfortunately it also sometimes seperates his shoulder, as has been noted. Of course I'd take a seperated shoulder from a clean block over poor Gramatica ending his career a few years ago celebrating.

Yes, it was along the Dolphins' sideline.

Re: Portis Blocks Taylor

After looking at it again, I totally change my view.

Clinton Portis was trying to help out Campbell and lit someone up. I said it was unnecessary at first, but Portis didn't know that. I'm not going to sit here and be an armchair judge of the play. He was trying to help out his QB, and it looked relatively clean.

Props to CP, he's continually proves how much of a beast he really is.

I just hope he can finish the season without being injured.

I hope you could tell, my post was dripping with sarcasm.

well, your right he should shouldnt he. not to mention he chipped on the DE to create the hole, then went to the second level and buried zach thomas, and i mean pancaked his ass (with the help of someone else). i will blame betts not samuels on that one considering he did over and above. he created the hole then cleared it, and betts should of done more with it.

It was neither players fault as Samuals was looking for a block Betts had to moving to his right to avoid a D player and they just ran into each other. The funnest one I saw this week was in the Dallas game. I think Dallas had just made an int and the guy had an open field and a Dline man instead of running forward to held block ran sideways 5 or so yards and knocked his man out of bounds. The runner could have picked up another 10 to 20 yards as this lineman was only person close to him and it was so bad it looked as if he tried to knock him out.

Re: Portis Blocks Taylor

Portis' block on Matt Roth reminded me of a few seasons back when he absolutely put Shelton Quarles to sleep in that Bucs game. Quarles hit the ground face first was lights out for a few seconds before he even moved. Great stuff. As long as he doesn't re-injure that surgically repaired shoulder, I'm all for his agressive blocking.

Re: Portis Blocks Taylor

The best blocking RB was Sweetness. In fact, during his playing days when Walter Payton was asked to envision his best play, he told the reporter it was making a devastating block on a blitzing LB and allowing his QB to throw a 90-yeard TD. This from the then-all time leading rusher. And a guy who NEVER ran out of bounds -- he would hit the DBs on the way out. Portis definitely has some of those tendencies.

Not to finish anything, I'm sure, but Betts is a far far better pass receiver than Portis.

Re: Portis Blocks Taylor

I have to agree, Betts does work better with screen passes than Clinton, I still favor Clinton and I hope so does everyone else. Clinton can make moves Betts can't, they can both run people over too. Both are great backs though, no question.

I just wish Saunders would give him a chance to isolate against LBs downfield in the passing game. I believe Portis could be every bit as effective as Brian Westbrook and Tiki Barber as a receiver.

OK, not sure if anyone posted it here or somewhere else, but here's a compilation of Portis blocks, the Miami block is included. He could have gotten flagged, it was behind the play, and there was some helmet to helmet contact. But the way he just launches himself, I thought of him as a small back, but he's got some definite pop. Portis reclaims his rightful status as an elite back this season...
