CP is not even the best "injured Redskin"......

Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

I dont want to get on Portis too much, if at all... While I'm ready to move on from him overall, I dont think its fair to blame him for much of anything with the way this season has gone. As a complete back (blocking, receiving, ect) he's by far the best on our team, and people like ot give him a lot of sh*t, but he's been one of the most consistant players for us since he has gotten here, and provided an awful lot of memories....

....but I gotta say, I was very suprised at how well I thought Betts was running the ball today. Thats as good as anyone has run the football for us all season long. Its really crazy how much better that guy runs when he is "the guy" and not the change of pace guy. I'd like to see a bit more of him next week if Portis can't go....

But saying Portis is a "big" problem, makes me feel like people are trying to blame him for the teams play, when I dont think thats the case at all.

Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

The line is a disgrace and the worst problem on the O, no doubt. BUT CP like JC does not do things competant people at their respective positions should do.

I would have to say I agree with everything you just said.

Portis isn't a BIG problem. But I think he's done in Washington.

yeah dont blame cp, i you want a rationale reason you have to ask the mods who apparently when this subject of this skins being married contractually to portis in the offseason is a non issue..... yawn.

sadly, most mods are on record as saying there needs to be a change at rb, please compare this with their put down thoughts just a few months ago.

go skins!!
huh??

Snyder's been listening to the wrong baseball field. His field has been saying "Create an offseason frenzy and the money will come"

I don't think this is a complete reflection on Portis's ability. From the looks of it we made adjustments at half and didn't give up on the run. Atlanta seemed prepared for some pass heavy offense so we could get back into the game.

We did manage to run better in the 2nd half though. I can't completely put that on Portis given the circumstances.
You ain't kiddin. Snyder doesn't need an uncapped NFL to win, he needs an uncapped NFL just to keep the roster from completely collapsing. Portis will be on the books bigtime for years and will likely never contribute anything more to the franchise.

Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

Portis is here next year. But no reason not to bring in a starter. Portis has no speed, doesn't practice and throws Sellers under the bus. If I'm the boss Betts starts rest of the season til he starts fumbling.

Re: Portis is a BIG problem!!!

Problem with the other backs is that they don't block nearly as well as Portis does. Other than that I was really surprised to see how well Betts and Cartwright played. They really showed up and we actually had a running game that took some pressure off of Jason Campbell unlike in games past where the running game was virtually non-existent.

Maybe if they could play with a lead just once. Not surprising that the D is starting to wear down after having to play with that pathetic Offense all year.
