I know. I saw the game. JT is a perfect example of what I meant. Luckily it was not as serious as they frist thought. But I agree he does need some running plays.

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it

I want to see Portis in a baseball cap on Thursday. He doesn't need to be in the game for any reason. Betts needs to learn how to hold on to the f*cking ball so he needs the carries on Thursday. For all of the Betts fanboys out there, THAT'S the reason he's not a starting RB in the NFL.

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it

I think that Portis actually played really well during the limited time he was in there. I think that what contributed to the loss on Sat was the fact that we did throw quite a bit and we didn't use a deeper drop. I know in the West Coast offense you have shorter drops and you have get the ball out quick, but when you are getting back in three step drops and you aren't able to get the ball out because the lineman are getting beat then it isn't necessarliy the QB's fault and it isn't the line's fault. The play calling is what needs to be adjusted. It is possible that Zorn may need to learn that a diverse play calling set will settle the line and also slow the down rush when you use more running plays and deeper drops.

I liked Mason...is it time to cut rock loose and get some fresh legs in there? Over the past few years although rock has been solid...hes been unspectacular, not very dynamic. Thoughts?

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it

Are you getting kind of tired of Portis remarks concerning playing in pre-season? Check out the Portis int for 8-26.

Washington Redskins

No question, he's a baller in the game, who I have great respect for, but.....get over it. Maybe for 48m p/hour to play a game, you can shut your mouth and go to work.
You ain't L.T.

Hes not LT..but still can you blame him? every hit he taes is one less run in his career. Hes been injured and hes a baller, i can understand his frustration. With the type of numbers he posts i think hes more than proven himself to rest up

I hear you, but........
It's a dangerous game.
I might point out, he is WELL compensated for that reason, and to do whatever the coach and the team might require of him (whenever they require it) that does not violate the players contract, etc. While Portis has no doubt been an asset to this team, and continues to be, he needs to put his head down, and go to work. (IMO)
For the good of the team, and perhaps not his personal interests

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it

Portis is never going to be happy about playing in the preseason, it's just how he is. He might complain about it a bit, but in the end he goes out there and straps on his helmet and plays.

Cannot be denied!
When he hits the field, he's all business!
Maybe, I'm just a ............little sensitive?

I can see his comments can be annoying... I just chalk it up to CP being CP. As you say when he hits the field he's all business so I guess that's all that really matters.

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it

Its a good thing that all of our starters don't take this attitude. What makes him more special then any other starter playing in preseason as we need them all. Maybe he is worried that he might get hurt and Betts shows he can move the ball just as well as he? This guy gets paid millions so he needs to keep his thoughts to himself.

Re: Portis to play Saturday - he doesn't seem too happy about it

Since when does a person's paycheck determine what they can and can't say??

He's certainly entitled to having an opinion, no?
