Colossal mistake, and we also gave up a 2nd (?) round pick. Portis was great, but (1) Shut-down corners are much harder to find. (2) RB's careers are much shorter (as we're seeing now).

I hope Portis is okay and wish him the best. But time for a new *young* RB in the draft (after offensive line).
First, while I do understand what supposedly occured with the doctors, no, I do not believe him. I think the skins made it clear they don't want him back, and he is now disheartened to the team and what's the point of coming back when the team isn't going anywhere? He gets paid regardless. Again, who do you know misses 8 weeks of the season with a concussion? It just doesn't happen. Some day we will be aware of what is REALLY happening cause we all know Portis is a big mouth.
Second, your second point is true, and a lot of us felt that way when it happened, but man that was a LOOOONG time ago and Portis did well for us for a while, he's just done now.

+ 5

Agreed. Let's hope Clinton "i'm delusional about my own abilities" Portis will go on to bless some other franchise with his presence. But know this...whoever picks him up, the running game just got that much easier to defend against!

Our RB situation will be completely different next year. I see a Ganther, Portis, Ryan Mathews or Toby Gerhart combination.

I'd honestly rather have Rock than Portis. Rock has more heart and less wear and tear. Gerhart would be the change of pace guy we've been looking for. I'd be cool with Ganther. It'd be nice to have situational backs instead of an all purpose back.

100% agreed.

You realize getting Gerhart would mean we're probably ignoring the line AGAIN?

We need to use the #1 on the OL.

I agree with Buster here. Everybody is chomping at the bit to get a new back, which we desperatley need, but we need to fix our line too.

Use picks on linemen, and then if we can get a good back, do it.

How do people here define "change of pace back"

Re: Portis put on IR, done for '09

Keeping Rock is a nice idea however it's not the thought of the owner or management however IMO. If Rock wasn't so good on special teams, he would have been gone.The fact that Devin has done so well on kick off return, I don't see Rock being here next year. No matter how hard he tries and the effort he puts in he can't carry the offense on his back if needed. He is just not that caliber of back.

Brian Westbrook is back at practice today even though he has had 2 concussions in a span of 3 weeks. If you think Portis being put on IR was purely due to a concussion, I have a bridge I can sell you.

His name was thrown out there. You'll have no arguement from me about a LT for the # 1 this year, just like last year, and the year before that, and . . .

Small little runners VS Big ole runners. Speed & Ellusiveness VS Raw Power.

So I guess you're saying there's no way Portis simply had a worse concussion than Westbrook? The records of both teams at this point is also a factor. At 3-9 there's no point in trying to get CP back on the field.

Heck Trent Green missed most of the entire 2006 season with a severe concussion. He came back that season, but his game was off.

The very next year, Green suffered another concussion that was much less serious...but decided to retire anyway, because the risk was too great.

Portis may have to face the same decision...

I am definitely saying that especially considering Westbrooks hits were harder and twice as many. Of course the brain is a fickle thing, and you never know how it will respond, but you really have to ask yourself who has ever missed 8 games with a concussion. It just doesn't happen. There is clearly more to this than either side (Portis or the Skins) are letting on.

Of course, that was part of my point. There is no point in him playing...what would he be playing for?
