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

Turner says he believes that Portis has plenty left in him

Turner Has Great History With Running Backs

I'm sure plenty will disagree with Turner, but if CP is healthy and motivated I agree he's got something left.

I thought it was going to be Norv Turner, weighing in on a CP for LT trade.


I do believe that if CP has a compliment back and can stay healthy, he will do very well for another year or 2 in Shanahan's offense. As the full-time workhorse, no.

Yeah with a good off-season he can show what he's got left.. a bit of luck in blocking and health could go a long way with him

with a bad one, might as well chalk it up as him being done

Saying he want's to play for Shanahan means he didn't want to play for Zorn.

I think you nailed it. I've said it before, the hit Portis took was barely game ending let alone season ending. In other words he took a dive because he didn't want to play for Zorn.
To me as a die hard football and more specifically, Redskins fan, THIS REALLY PISSES ME OFF! I always liked Portis, but I have lost a lot of respect for him as a person and player.

I wouldn't make such a conclusion, but that's just me

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

Sure he has something left, but does he want to do the work to get the most out of it? I have no doubt if Portis goes all out and stays focused he can have a good year. The reason he gets by with so much crap is because every coach sees the great talent he has. If he puts as much effort into being a great RB as he does running his mouth, he'll probably have a good year. Portis is as good as he works to be.

Good point 53. He has never been one to put in alot of off season work. I think after the 08 season, and all the "genius" back and forth between Zorn and Portis, he kind of "shut it down".

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

#1- CP's arse was knocked the "F" out when he took the 2 helmet to helmet hits at once. He even fumbled the ball but was ruled down.

#2- Has his doctor even cleared him yet?

#3- Every job has a perk. His perk is that all he has to do is show up for camp in shape ready to practice and participate for a few MILLION dollars. Preferably with out complaint.

At this point I'd prefer to just get younger at this position. If we have to pick a position to not touch until next year then I guess this one would suffice but Portis, Betts, and Rock are all close to 30 and not getting younger. Portis's concussion means he'll be suseptable to getting concussions in the future more easily. Everyone kept mentioning how Ganther was a similar type of RB as our previous 3 RB's so I would say lets see what Shanahan can get out of a younger similar style of RB in Ganther and how he utilizes the scat back in Alridge and pick up a mid round or later RB that they think will work in their system. Get rid of Portis, Keep Betts and let the best man win.

I'd let Rock go since we have other players who can do the same job just as easily and can actually play other positions instead of just one spot. Get rid of Portis cause of his salary and because of the drama he caused this year. We need team players. We need players who are not going to complain about practice or preseason.

Portis gets his salary this year whether he is cut or not so to cut him cuz he costs alot is a mute point.

I'm aware there are a lot of pro's and con's associated with Portis, some people actually like him and some don't. I'll say this, I glad the team does not consist of fifty two others with his same mentality and/or work ethic.
