Love for Portis....finally

It was nice to finally hear something good about Portis. Most anouncers say he's weak, and that he is not going to last long. Finally heard Madden say he is a good pick up for the Redskins, and that we got the better end of the deal. He always gives his best, but never seems to get the credit.

I find that most announcers love Clinton Portis. Some here are critical of Portis, but around the league, I think most think he's a top tier back.

I think Madden said it was a good trade for both teams. No doubt though, we've had line problems most of the year. It looks like they are finally coming around though just in time.

If portis had line consistency he'd be a 1500 yard back every year. Decent year this year anyway

thats not really true...

Troy Aikman with Joe Buck is always complimenting him as well as Kenny Albert w/ Daryl Johnston and (THE MAN) Tony Siragusa

Re: Love for Portis....finally

CP's play last night had everything to do with me wearing a 26 jersey I had just bought earlier in the week. Every time he made a big play, I just pointed to my jersey and acknowledged, "It must be the jersey." So, it's what I'm sporting for the rest of our games (including playoffs) and for however long he stays a Redskin. Great Game CP!

Not to be a grammer nazi, but WTF is up with that capitalization?

Yes indeed, CP is the real deal.

Re: Love for Portis....finally

Yeah he's definitely one the great backs of his era. I'm glad we have him. People mistaken him for being a pre-modanna or arrogance, but he's just a good, hard working son of a gun with character. I love the fact that we always talks about things as a team and how to make the team better instead of the me me me persona.

Re: Love for Portis....finally

Madden has been loving Portis for a while now. And I think he said that both teams got a good deal with Champ and Portis.

Re: Love for Portis....finally

I think the difference the last 3 games for CP has been the addition of Heyer. This undrafted rookie is playing better than Wade.

Madden loves all RB, QB, and WR that aren't afraid to block.
Thats why he has a man crush on Farve.

Re: Love for Portis....finally

Most of the people I hear bashing him are either skins fans who were in love with champ, or broncos fans who were bitter about him leaving after back to back 1500 yard seasons.

The only thing I hear announcers talking about is him either being injured, or playing with abandon and not preserving his body for a lengthy career.
