Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

We just all need to relax here. I didnt sense any racism in these posts.. There is no racism on this board. That is the kind of garbage you see over at extremeskins, trust me on that guys.

I dont think anybody can deny that the offense has looked better with Portis out. I can't scientifically say why, but we can look at the stat sheets and see where the other backs have made more of a difference. Are they as good all around as Portis? Probably not. But Portis hasn't been healthy since last year, and he is showing his age and is in a decline...Portis has tons of carries and lots of total yardage, and at some point any back breaks down.

I think they could maximize what he has left by using him in a 50/50 type role like other teams do. But i dont see him personally going for that....

some of you guys are no better than your teams owner.....you are completely blinded by the fact that your team is struggling this year.....clinton portis is easily your best player.....easily a top 5 running back in the league on a bottom 5 team in the league......you guys make me laugh
Ahhh so you're a GM I take it?

Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

anyone who says CP is a top 5 back is clueless...you really cant think of more than 4 RBs who you would rather have?

CP is the 3rd best RB on his team.

You are a Jim Zorn fan. Why??? Portis is hurt, we need another stud to go along wiht Portis. We jsut need a good young runningback to boost the RB corps.

I think a big reason the back-ups are running better than Portis is that they are actually practicing with the line while CP sits out of practice nursing injuries. Practicing with the line has given the back-ups a sense of timing the holes and the line has a sense of the backs timing in hitting those holes. CP just hasnt practiced enough to develop that sense of timing with the line and as a result his performance has suffered.

i would agree, but Betts is missing practice now. It's a grueling job to be a smashmouth runningback. Practices are gonna be missed. It makes it hard with the line itself in flux. It's just a down year for Portis, you don't get rid of a work horse that quickly. Betts has had his chances before and has fumbled them away. I am scared of what might happen. People are saying Portis misses practices Why???? Why, the same reason Betts is missing practices this week. Remember when he played in that preseason game and hurt his shoulder? People!!! don't think this is not a normal situtaion. Riggo drinking booze at the practice facility? Joey T needs to man up. Gibbs let Riggo get away with the same stuff. In the interview, Gibbs said he let him do what he wanted. Riggo had Kelvin Bryant and Joe Washington. Remember????

Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

Portis has never been much for practice even during his better seasons. More than anything he's just not 100% this year, he hasn't been from the start. Hopefully he can get those bone spurs cleaned up in the offseason and be back to the Portis of old, or close to it.

True, practices will be missed and Betts will miss some this week but he has practiced much more that CP this year. My point is that I cant remember the last time CP had a full week of practice. I know he's dinged and its a viscious circle where CP cant practice because he's dinged and he isnt productive because he cant practice. Practice is important for timing and right now CP just cant get enough reps to get his timing down.

Who said Im a Zorn fan? Are you basing that off of my avatar? So I guess that you are a parrot fan?

Im not a Zorn fan, Im a Skins fan.

In regards to Portis.....he needs to be gone, get the young stud to go along with Betts

What you gonna do when Betts gets dinged and fatigued and has an off year? Get rid of Betts?

Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

For what? To insult the team and throw everybody under the bus when we are mathmatically eliminated from the playoffs in a few weeks?
