Re: Will Portis Get 2,000 Rushing Yards?

I was hoping he could break 1000 today! Its going be tough for him to break 2000. I can definitely see 1700-1800 yds with hopefully 15 TD's.

completely disagree.

i dont care who we play... our running game is on track and portis is a f'n animal son.

Re: Will Portis Get 2,000 Rushing Yards?

Everything is possible but he'll need to average 132 yards per game from here on out which is quite a feet. Plus there are 4 teams (especially the #1 ranked Steelers and #2 ranked Ravens) with a good/great defense we still have to play.

He has a chance but will fall short. His carries will get reduced especially if they lock up a playoff spot early. They will need him for the long haul.

i don't want to jinx him... he will hopefully continue to produce. If these boys can run on Pitt then we'll talk a little more about some kinda numbers...

Re: Will Portis Get 2,000 Rushing Yards?

60 yards? Now ill admit that the steelers defense is intimidating. and im not expecting a huge output next week. matter of fact, im not expecting portis to get alot of carries (considering his "injury" and the bye week right around the corner). but 60 yards against the division rivalries? did you forget that he ran for 120 against the cowboys and 145 against the eagles? he did 87 in week one against the giants, but lets face it, that game was terrible.

on a different note, i think its time for us to switch our game plan. with us running all over teams, they are more likely to focus on stopping CP, just like teams did last year to stop Adrian Peterson. AP put up big numbers in the first half of the season, but after opposing teams started stacking 8 men in the box and playing the run, AP started getting stopped quick. And yes, dont fix what isnt broken, but we were passing at will against the lions today, so why wasnt this more evident? zorns strategy is run on 1st down, run on 2nd down, pass on 3rd down.. and half the time we end up punting. its disappointing. Im satisfied with a win, but im starting to believe zorn has trouble adjusting his gameplan to whats actually going on with the game.

Re: Will Portis Get 2,000 Rushing Yards?

Keep in mind I think ...not positive...Zorn has run the ball the first play of every game. Sun. he passed just to throw off the defense. They stacked the box thinking run as usuall.

Re: Will Portis Get 2,000 Rushing Yards?

In terms of Rushing Defense, here is who Portis will have to run against:
Pittsburgh #2, Dallas #11, Seattle #22, NY Giants #7, Baltimore #1, Cincinnati #27, Philadelphia #9, San Francisco #19

2000 yards? Probably not. I can see 1750, but as long as the Skins are winning, and C-Po stays healthy, it doesn't matter how many yards he gets.

Re: Will Portis Get 2,000 Rushing Yards?

i kind of hope not. we need him as healthy as possible, if the skins are going to advance at all in the playoffs. individual records are nice, but....

Just the stats I was gonna go looking for BDB, so thanks eh. First off I think we're in a dog fight to the end w/ NY and Dallas for Division and/or Wild Card, so I spect CP will run every game. Against Seattle, Cinci and San Fran I'm gonna say he'll avg 190 yds per game. In one of those contests I'm betting he surpasses his own personal best of 223 (if memory serves). Portis loves to run against Dallas and Philly so a bet an avg of 130. And against Pitt, NY and Baltimore I bet an avg of 105. That's 1145 together and 2089 for the season.

Not sure I believe my own prediction...

thats an interesting take, the flip side is that effective running might be the reason our passing game has been so effective (high completion rate, high qb rating). i agree that AP was shutdown at the end of the season b/c teams were stacking the box but i believe that teams were afforded that luxury b/c tavaris jackson had serious throwing problems. with zorn and JC i dont think teams can stack the box and i havent seen many teams stacks the box like they have years past.

on the playcalling i dont see zorn going run, run pass but mixing it up. we have been pinned back deep in our own territory the past few games and i think field position dictated conservative playcalling there.

i guess it like the chicken and the egg; does the run set up the pass or vice versa. either way i see a balanced attack taking what teams give us, maybe this is why we rack up yards but dont score as many points as we'd like. interesting take i kinda see it the other way but you might be right.

go skins!!
