I think that was me you are referring to, but that is not exactly what I meant. Sorry if I was a bit unclear. I meant only that by ending his career early and missing out on a successful Giants season (and yes their Super Bowl victory too) that he would have less of a chance then if he had stuck it out even one more year. I know that you don't need to win a SB to get into the HOF, but it sure doesn't hurt, especially when your overall stats are fairly unimpressive (as are Tiki's). What records does he even hold? I'm sure he has some Giant's records. Portis on the other hand:
"Portis rushed for over 1,500 yards in each of his first two seasons with the Broncos, averaging 5.5 yards per carry in that span. The latter is an NFL record for a running back's first two seasons. On December 7, 2003, Portis scored a staggering 5 rushing touchdowns in a 45-27 win over the 11-1 Kansas City Chiefs. No running back in the NFL has scored more than 4 rushing TDs since."
Redskins' franchise record for the most rushing yards in a season with 1,516 yards and tied the most 100+ yard games in a season (5). He ended the game with 112 rushing yards. By rushing for 1,516 yards, he became only the third runner in league history to reach 1,500 yards in three of his first four seasons.
He was offensive Rookie of the Year. Clinton Portis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He'll be 27 next year, and I wouldn't be surprised if he starts for 3 more years. That is plenty of time to climb up the All Time lists and set new records. No, CP is not Emmit Smith, nor is he close, but he is certainly on pace to be a future Hall of Famer.
