That says alot to me about CP's character and his potential when motivated!

Right when motivated..which is why I want to keep CP around a little longer. Let's see if Shanny can correct his behavior

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

At least everybody is questioning his motivation. Why wouldn't you be motivated to know that you are going to get the money no matter how much you suck?

They should re-do his deal to make him EARN his money. Then he'll refuse, Shanahan will cut him, and we will move on...

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

I've taken a 180 degree turn on this. I say keep Portis, Campbell AND even Rock. I like Rock catching passes out of the backfield. Get another back and use him and Portis interchangeably, similar to the how the Panthers, Cardinals, Ravens and others utilize their backs.

Keep Campbell, but don't take drafting a QB with the 4th pick off the table. If Shanny determines that one the QBs available is a potential all time great, go for it. If not, draft the best O linemen we can get or trade down. Definitely trade Cooley. Get O linemen and a good Free Safety by any means.

Getting a good Free Safety is a 2 for 1 pick-up, since we can move Landry back to Strong Safety.

Presto Chango, we're in the playoffs in 2011... next year's schedule it brutal.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

What back would we get that would be an upgrade over CP (a potential HOF)?

BTW- We are not drafting one in the first few rounds when we need OL, QB, CB and FS more pressingly!

The real question is who would you rather keep Portis or Betts?

Betts....Shanahan would see it that way too, as he wanted Ladell a few years back...

He's also not to bad at catching passes out of the backfield and making one cut and go.

... And he will still get paid. He's guaranteed something like $7M so he has no incentive at all to do a new deal, unless you want to give him more $$ but that's just insane. So you either cut him and get nothing, or you try to whip his ass into shape and get something in return for the money.

Re: Do you want Portis back next season?

interesting comment about Portis' contract as it relates to the capless year and a new CBA instituted after that from someone by the name of Spear on extremeskins:

Quote:
No. No. No. I don't know why I have to keep explaining this. The dead money will not -- can not -- carry over to a new CBA. The uncapped year wipes the slate clean. So, if there is nothing to accelerate, there is no cap hit associated with releasing anyone signed prior to the next CBA, unless they have roster bonuses or guaranteed salary scheduled during newly capped seasons. Bottom line: it does not make a difference whether we cut him before or after the next CBA. His inflated cap number dies in March and will not be magically resurrected.

Also, Portis' base salary IS guaranteed for 2010.
Does anyone know if the part in italics is true or not? If its true, then there really is no benefit of releasing a player in 2010 based soley on your desire to be rid of an inflated contract.

It's true, but there are going to be standardized restrictions on dumping large contracts this offseason. So perhaps if we are allowed to take Randy Thomas or Chris Samuels off the books this offseason, they won't allow us to release Portis and/or Moss as well. There really hasn't been much written about this, except that there will be restrictions. There will also be loopholes, I'm guessing.

March 5 is the CBA expiration date.
