I will continue to pray for Portis' health and well being. He has been a warrior for his time, and has come close to breaking the Redskins all-time rushing mark. His condition is indicative of just how violent the game of football has become as we're now seeing more and more concussions. His health is more important than football.

Most overrated Redskin of the last decade.
Are there any current Redskins you have a positive impression of? All I see you do around here is rip on people.

I'm amazed at all the concussion specialists here on Warpath who have properly diagnosed Portis' condition and readiness to return this season. But of course Portis has declined because he's lazy and has a big mouth.

I've wondered about this. Is Portis just taking the season off in hopes of a trade or a better Skins team next year? Seems kind of fishy to me that he is still suffering concussion complications this long, (from the hit he took spacifically).

Sums up my feelings 100% ... really loved the guy, some of the memories in 2005, 2007 (and the first offensive play I ever saw at FedEx was him taking it to the house.. or maybe second who knows...but one of my favorite moments ever)... I just think its time.

My bad, I omitted a few words from my original post. Re-read it.

I agree with you and SS, as I feel same way.. Although I think the idea of releasing Portis still hasn't come up in Vinny's mind because he knows Snyder loves him.. Releasing Portis would only unleash hell coming out from Snyder, that is unless if Snyder has learned how to back out..

You're way off there.

I've been critical of Campbell, Portis and Landry.

I'm sure 90% of members have slagged off many more players than that.

Re: Portis put on IR, done for '09

Sounds like a guy about to retire to me:

Season over, future unclear, for Redskins' Portis - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

I have to put the time into rehabbing and continuing to do what the doctors say, but at the same time, to have the opportunity to play for eight years and play and compete and not miss many games if its my time and I look back today, I think I had a great career. No one wants to finish on an injury, but at the same time I enjoyed it and I would love to come back.

Do I think there will be change? I do, Portis said. And if Im part of that change would I be sad and devastated? I wont. I think Im appreciative of everything Mr. Snyder and the Washington Redskins have done for me, the opportunities they gave me.

Im 28, man. Im not going to be devastated: Oh, man, football is over. I enjoyed it. I had fun doing it. I gave everything I had doing it. I did it to the best of my ability. The day that I sit down and I look back on my career I think I will enjoy the highlights. If I get to continue and Im not in D.C. and I have to play for someone else, I will give it all I got there as well.

Re: Portis put on IR, done for '09

I just seriously doubt he's that injured. I've seen MASSIVE hits far worse than his and those players come back within 1-2 weeks. I am not sure about this, but someone missing what 8 or 9 weeks of the season due to a concussion has got to be extremely rare. He's on IR because he's been ineffective and we have far better options to run the ball. Since Portis has been out we have had a spark on offense. I like Portis, but we all pointed out that he seemed to have "lost a step"...he has a lot of miles on those legs, maybe it's time to part ways...especially with what we are paying him.
