They lose to teams they should beat, and beat teams they shouldn't beat. Been that way since Napolean met Josephione (aka Vinny).
I'll take that action, except I get to choose your name.

Actually I can't change my name so we'll have to come up with something else for me, not that we have much to worry about. Skins aren't winning 3 in a row. Even if they had the Browns, Raiders, and Titans up next it wouldn't happen.

Sure he has, 2008, 2007, 2005. And in 2004 he played in 15.

Yeah, remember we gave Denver Champ Bailey and a 2nd round pick for Champ Bailey? We should have received a draft pick for that trade.

Re: Clinton Portis among players who have worn out their welcome

I'm assuming you meant give the 2nd round pick and Champ Bailey for Portis. In hindsight, i'm sure most regret that trade now...especially given how Portis kind of petered out 3 years later. 2008 he hit the wall and no matter what excuses are made, his play dropped off dramatically. 2009 and i think reality has hit for even the portis fans. I respect Portis. I think his character and overall attitude is questionable at times, but there is no doubt he does the best he can on the field.

I partially blame the redskins "pound the rock" philosophy for him getting worn out. Somebody earlier in the year compiled a list of runningbacks and how many carries they have had vs. their production, and Portis was found to be at a high risk of breaking down. That was posted before this season, when the injuries absolutley caught up with him and he looked done. Looking at other backs on that list, Age had nothing to do with it if a RB didn't have as many carries. They had plenty that performed well into their 30's and higher. Earl Campbell comes to mind...

With that said, we need to move on from him and his bloated salary after this season. Especially with the prospect of an uncapped year...

Fun bit of news on his Yahoo profile:

Quote:
Nov 3 RB Clinton Portis is seventh in the NFC in rushing and has fewer attempts (120) than the six backs ahead of him.

cp will be here next year and it would be nice to see him split the carries with anyone but betts, preferably some one faster and younger

I dont have a problem with the Skins pounding him, he's a RB and that's what you do with RBs. What I have the problem with is how much they paid him. You just dont pay RBs that much money because then you are really locked in with them.

Re: Clinton Portis among players who have worn out their welcome

I hated the champ trade when it was made, but I think portis was a big part of Gibbs' success in 05 & 07 and a cornerstone of the team. However, look at that trade now & you still see how Denver got the best of us. Champ is still a great cb, we're overpaying an old, slow CP who has thrown his coach under the bus, and they got a 2nd round pick.
