Re: Portis staying?

Agreed that Portis can't carry a running game anymore. Still, we're paying him $6 million for next year, might as well keep him for the stuff that he still can do well. If he declines in that, there's no reason to have him on the roster in 2011.

Re: Portis staying?

I will say i've noticed that the last little bit of people who supported him went the way of the dodo after he blasted Campbell for his "work habits" LOL at that.

There is a reason he is described by fellow redskins as "the worst team mate ever"

If our cap sheets are correct, he's getting $10M this year. Either way it's too much, I'd rather spend the $$$ on solid FA O-Lineman and the rest on a FA RB or rookie RB.

Bad examples on the jerseys, he'd be more of a Stephen Davis.

I think the difference is either pro-rated bonus money (my guess) or recoverable bonus money (not likely). I know the 6 million figure represents a base salary figure that Vinny guarenteed to Portis in exchange for re-doing his contract last February.

It was written into the CBA that in the last capped year, contracts could only be restructed to players if their salaries were guarenteed through the uncapped year. The reason for this is pretty intuitive.

That's a good question. I'd trade or cut him ASAP myself, but I have a feeling the coaches will make the right decision. I don't think Danny has a hand in it anymore. I think for the first time in a long time Portis is going to have to EARN his place on this team. We'll see if he's up to the task I guess. The rules will be laid out for him, the balls in his court. Time to nut up or shutup eh Snake?

Re: Portis staying?

Okay, quickly, you realize that one of you anti-portis guys compared a pro bowl, multi-thousand yard season running playmaker who broke team records set by Riggins (who's jersey i have) to HEATH FRIGGIN SHULER!?!?!

You can call him a 'has been' but you can't compare him to a 'never was'!!?!?!

HA HA HA HA HA! You guys crack me up!

Spare us, we get it. He's a baller and can do no wrong. With Shanahan on board he's bound to run for 1500 yards and 15 TDs again.

Our cap sheets show a salary of $ 7.1M and a cap bonus of $ 2.9M. I believe the cap bonus is due by the start of Free Agency (March 5th), so we'll know if Portis will be with us by then.

Schneed or CrazyCanuck can correct me if I'm wrong on this.

You may have been a little cracked before you got here.

Yes, I agree Portis has been more productive than Heath Shuler. It was a bad jersey reference, for what was a joke.....

But what you have no counter for is the analysis of Portis and that his performance and abilities have significantly declined.

The blurb about Heath Schuler was a direct shot to Slingin' Sammy. I suspect he wont be happy.

The only team record Portis broke was the single season rushing yardage. He has yet to surpass the all-time career yards held by Riggo, nor has he surpassed Riggo's single season rushing TD record (24). Seeing as how he cant manage 50 yards a game on most days, i think Riggins' all time record is safe..

What is cracking up is your comments in here. Seriously dude are you just having a laugh at our expense? Its almost like you're trying to set somebody off...
