Good insight on Portis. ST's impact will continue long after his death. Pretty remarkable.

Re: Clinton Portis Gets Real

I had heard that Clinton almost completely changed his approach this offseason after Sean's death. Clinton said to ESPN that he was going to try to do things the way Sean would do them...he was always watching film or running another drill...always trying to get better.

Yeah, and he's injured entering the season. It was like his body knew he'd be on the cover and went ahead and got hurt ahead of time, just to get it out of the way.
