Re: Portis on NFLN "Want's to play for Shanny"

He's such a child. He's the kid in class who acted up when a sub (Zorn) came in. When teacher (Shanny) returned or the principal (Allen)walked by, he straightened up. Seems nothing's changed since 4th grade.

I used to be CP fan until he bailed on the team last season. Why move ass now, Clinton?

At loss number 3, Portis will blow up on the John Thomspon show or something. He needs to come out and have a "team player" kind of season, and I simply don't think he has that in him.
Ditto! It will be a big mistake if we keep CP. We all know he will disrupt Shanny's efforts to rebuild a TEAM and he will be cut next year anyway. So Allen/Shanny should smartly ship him out and try and and get some value (4th or 5th pick) now cause next year he will be worthless.

I have gotten to the point where I no longer listen to anything Portis has to say. What will be telling is what he does, not what he says. He says a lot without really saying anything. I guess you have to be where he's from to understand him.

Re: Portis on NFLN "Want's to play for Shanny"

It's really a shame how CP has fallen from the Redskins faithfull graces ... I think we can all agree that back in 05-08 he was a true Redskin and busted his ass every second on the field ... Remember that tackle in pre-season against the Bengals because of a shitty INT ? Remember all the bad ass blocks he lays people on his ass day in and day out ... Remember all the yards/touchdowns and 2 playoff app.'s ???? Let's let the chip's fall where they may but if CP can back up his mouth I see big things from him this year ...

1,500 yards
12+ TD's

Lot's to prove and a hungry CP is good to me ..


Don't forget Zorno was a moron and that pissed everyone off not just Clinton

3) I know he won't keep his mouth shut.
1) If he doesn't practice, Shanahan will give him the boot... and i'm sure he knows that better than we do.

2) He should be a little used to splitting carries. the two years before Betts broke 1000 and the one year after, Betts got 90, 89, and 93 carries. Not that it's exactly 50/50 but Portis is not stranger to the concept of sharing carries. At this point in his career, he should be happy to be relevant at all. If he isn't, he better pretend to be, cuz if he gripes about it, Shanahan will give him the boot... and i'm sure he knows that better than we do.

3) If shanahan puts is hit in his @$$ one good time, i think he'll keep his mouth shut. If not Shanahan will give him the boot... and i'm sure he knows that better than we do.

Re: Portis on NFLN "Want's to play for Shanny"

Of course, Portis wants to play for Shanny. There's no guarantee he would play much anywhere else.

I say we sign Pierre Thomas. He would be so good in the zone blocking scheme. He hits the hole hard, and I think he was underutilized in New Orleans.

It was a good thing the Saints won the Super Bowl.. According to Shefter, over half the players on the team are up for new contracts this offseason. 18 RFA's and 11 UFA's, plus they are certain to extend Brees with a long term deal. So they can't pay everyone.

Which means they are probably going to get cherry picked.

Put our points together. A handfull of Saints are probably gonna want more money. Brees no doubt deserves it, but so does Brady. Brees may pull a Brady and NOT ask for a ton of money to ensure the team's longevity as a contender by freeing money for a great supporting cast.

Bell is gonna be a free agent. Now i seriosly doubt they will try harder to keep Bell than keep Pierre Thomas. Statisticly he's just barely above everyone else. He's been as important as Reggie Bush. If they keep Bush and Thomas, Bell can be replaced cheaply from within, thus a more likely option for other teams... unless he wants to leave. I bet Bell is out and Thomas will stay. But there really isn't any telling.

Yeah, and who knows what the price tag for some of those defenders is going to be. There are two O-Linemen (Bushrod and Brown) that are going to be RFA's and every other team in the league that values upright QB's tend to spend well on their lines, so we'll see which way they go.

Most people believe Reggie Bush is gone because he's due to make $20mil over the next two years, and while he has bona fide game-changing skills, is he worth that kind of dough by default? I don't see it. (And surely, neither do the Saints). But maybe they keep Reggie and Pierre and resign Brees, leaving one or both of their RFA OT's vulnerable?

I don't think he's going to break Riggo's record.
He'll probably average 4.0 YPC AT BEST and get around 243 carries in a season(frequent trend in Shanahan's offense) and in Shanny's run game, a 4.0 YPC is actually below average.

No. Sign Peyton Hillis(Ideally, McDaniels the dummy cuts him). The dude's a great reciever AND is a good power back. He's also come with a cheaper price tag.

Re: Portis on NFLN "Want's to play for Shanny"

Portis wants to get those fat paychecks that are coming to him so long as his contract stays in place. NO team in the league will sign him as a free agent to anything nearly that lucrative; I am positive that his agent has explained that to him.

If the Skins release him, he will get whatever guaranteed money is still due him and then he is off signing small contracts to try to catch on with other teams. The model here is Shaun Alexander or Ahman Green late in their careers.

And this year it is possible that Portis would be only the 3rd most desirable "aging running back" on the market. LaDanian Tomlinson may be available and so may Brian Westbrook. The benefit that either of them brings to the table is that neither of those guys is known as a "pain in the ass". Oh, and their resumes as running backs are at least as good as Portis' resume too.
