Portis is good

From Peter King's column today:

quote:
Sweet music to Washington fans' ears:

Clinton Portis, is his three seasons (one at the University of Miami and two with Denver) as a full-time starting running back in college or pro football, has averaged, per season, 5.5, 5.5 and 5.5 yards per carry.


He also rags on TO and argues that the Raven's deal must stand. Right on!

Holy Crap! That is 16.5 yards per carry cumultively - that is Hall Of Fame material.

I can't wait to see him suit up!

i bet it made his hemmoroids act up big time saying something good about the redskins.the only reason he said something bad about TO is because his lips are permantley attached to the asses of the forty niner big wigs,walsh and terry donahue.i still hate the guy,he's should take a laxative and hope it blows his brains out.

I too am excited at the prospect of Portis, but does anybody have a number as far as average carries per game on this guy? I suspect Gibbs will be banging him 20-25 carries a game, is he durable?

Portis had 290 carries in 13 games last year, a little over 22 per game. Plus he averaged 3 catches a game

With 29 games played, Portis has 563 carries for 3099 yards, which comes out to an average of 19.4 carries per game, for an average of 5.5 yards per carry.

Keep in mind, however, that of those 29 games, Portis has started only 25 of them. The games he did not start were in the first four games of his rookie year, where he carried the ball 5, 4, 18 and 8 times, respectively. Toss out those games, and his average goes up to a slightly more rugged 21.1 carries per game.

Doesn't sound like much, you say? Well, surprisingly, despite the reputation of Gibbs runningbacks as 25-plus carries per game types, Portis' career average is actually significantly higher than those of most of Gibbs' primary ballcarriers.
  • Earnest Byner averaged only 17.35 carries per game in his three years as the primary ballcarrier ('90-'92).
  • Gerald Riggs averaged only 16.75 carries per game in his approximately 12 games ('89) as the primary back.
  • George Rogers averaged only 17.8 carries per game in his two 1,000 yard seasons ('85 and '86).
  • Only the venerable old "Diesel", John Riggins, averaged more than 20 carries per game as the primary back (excluding the '81 season, where he and Joe Washington essentially split carries), averaging 23.75 carries per game.
One interesting thing to note about Portis' astounding rushing averages is that his average yards per carry actually goes up substantially when his team is ahead, to a devastating 6.0 yards per carry. That number was probably a big factor in Gibbs & Co's love affair with the young star.

Actually though it does bring me to another question, any of you guys have any good sites to research player stats and things of that nature?

Here are three of my favorites:The second site is one of the most comprehensive collections of NFL historical stats I've found on any free site. It has season-by-season stats for every NFL team, and even has stats for now-defunct historical teams. They've even been adding box scores of NFL games to the site, and have compiled them all the way back to the '94 season. Hopefully, they'll continue to add to it. It's damn good for a free site.

awesome job finding all of that info. do you know if its possible to see what situations the team was in when he has had his fumbles the past 2 years? I only ask cuz I'd hate to see another Stephen Davis situation where he fumbles within 5 yards of the goalline(like he did in that last drive against us this year) or near the end of a game trying to wear the clock out (like in the cowboy game a couple years ago which was one of the worst game to watch in my life.)
