Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

Really, SS? Ladel Betts may be up there in age but he doesn't have the same wear and tear as Portis does. I can see Betts as a 1,000 yard rusher over the next 3 seasons if given the opportunity.

Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

Washington Redskins fullback Mike Sellers' take: "We ain't no snitches over here! ... That is not happening."

that is sellars reaction to the league asking players to notify medical staff if they notice a teammate with concussion symtoms. i do not really like goodell, but i don't understand why anyone would be opposed to not getting long term brain damage. i understand players want to play, but do they not want a f-in brain when it's all said and done?

i hope portis stays out until he has FULLY recovered and samuels never takes another snap

heres the article, sellars comment is midway through

How did you figure me out can you read my I.P. ADDRESS?

I dont hate him I am starting dispise him. Do you remember when D.hall Intercepted that pass a few weeks ago and returns it to the 1 yardline and CP comes in and jumps over the pile for a 1 yard TD, then he is on the side on the side line with an oxygen mask on he is just to much drama nowadays.

Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

I mean why take the risk? In senseless to rush back when there's a possibility of brain damage.

...I'd like to think Betts has a lot left to offer. I understand he's not football spring chicken, but the dude has very very carries/miles on him. I tend to think it's all up to his discipline. A superior diet, workout regimen will extend to high level of performance. Personally I would like to see Betts have a strong finish to his career in DC.

Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

according to zorn's press conference portis is out against the eagles next weekend, and possibly further, i wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't come back at all

My thoughts exactly, who can still support Portis after the last couple of years? I can't think of many times i wished for someone to get hurt, but i wasn't mad for Portis to miss some games.

Come on guys, don't forget this guy gave us around 1500 yards last season, lets not toss him out as dead weight so easily

i'm very surprised how fast everyone wants to toss him to the side, i would love to see him get healthy and come back in a secondary role in our backfield net year

he has been steadily tied with los for the player most people would like to see gone on the warpath poll, that blows my mind

Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

I want to see us move on from Portis but not because I want him gone. Far from it. I think he's given a lot to this team, but for the greater good we should move him now because he's on the downward slope of his career in my opinion. Better to get rid of him a year too early than a year too late

Oh brother. He's one of a handful of backs who still get almost all of their team's carries. There are dozens of much cheaper backs who could have racked up 1500 yards if they got the 342 carries Portis got. Most teams are smart enough to split the carries among 2 or 3 backs. We've seen Betts and Cartwright be productive, but our stupid coaching staff froze them both out, so Portis could hog all the carries. What a waste.

Re: Portis to see concussion specialist

Looking at Portis' comments lately, he kinda takes some jabs at the team. On his radio show he said something like "that's the redskins, make everything harder."

I wonder how much Portis is really trying to come back. I don't know anything about recovering from a concussion, but I think you have to wonder if he's really committed to coming back.

I also think Zorn has used this situation to gain control; he's basically said once you practice you can play. It's an ultimatum of sorts. I could see CP deciding to stay out just to spite Zorn for making him come to practice.

He's brought it on himself. I would love to see him in b&g til the end of his career, but only if he can be a team player & stop running his mouth, skipping practice, telling coaches to bench Sellers, etc.
