In Shanahan's words, I think Mike would be "disappointed" by that outcome.

I was wondering about Landry too. Shanahan was clear 100% is everybody, and well 98% is ......... not.

I believe if anybody wants their ticket out Ashburn punched, the first step is to miss this work out coming up.

Here's a photo of the big 3, from Chris Russell's 106.7 blog.

"disappointed"....i dont like that words.

Sounds like something old lovable Coach Joe would say, or something Zorn would say:

"Well Golly Gee Willagers, i'm so dissappointed at how our workouts turned out". Sorry that was my best Zorn impression.

I want to hear Shanahan say that anyone who doesn't workout will be cut.

I don't think he can say that, because they have to be voluntary. When you look at the video and how he says it, you understand what he means.

There is a fine line between a "i'm disappointed, have a great day" and "i'm disappointed, here's your pink slip" . I think the great coaches walk that very close, JG did it well, JZ not so much.

CP isnt the sharpest knife if the drawer but even he's not so dumb as to not show up and participate fully with the new coach. Shanny wont be treating CP with kid gloves like Gibbs and he has a good enough record of success that he wont stand for being put down like Zorn did. I think this is going to be a rude awakening for CP.

CP knows what Shanahan is all about, he's not going to play games with him especially on day 1 of voluntary workouts. I really believe all the shenanigans we've seen from him are over. There's a new sheriff in town in Shanahan, a guy that he respects and will play hard for. He knows he can't get away with the crap he's pulled in the past.

Not to mention when Gibbs had Portis he was in his prime now Portis is older and struggling. He basically has a lot more to prove this year then in the past.

I think part of the rationale behind seeking out a veteran compliment to Portis is to give him that extra kick in the ass too.

If I were a Redskins coach I would play the "you were 4-12" card early and often as a motivator.

Therein lies the problem, that CP even needs a kick in the ass says he's not the kind of guy you want on your team. I guess I dont understand why a team would bring in an aging player to compliment another aging player. IMO, the real kick in the ass would come from a rookie coming in and running rings around CP. I think CP will have a few good games but in the end he will fizzle out by about week 4. Bottom line is the Skins held on to him too long.

Re: Portis cleared to participate in offseason workouts, Rogers will be there as well

About a few days ago, i put all my hate of portis aside....i started looking at things from a team standpoint. And what i can't understand is why they are even committing to him. I could understand 100% totally if they made him a backup. But here's the thing:

His behavior and other problems have totally outweighed any potential good he could do here, especially over the last 2 seasons. I think he has worn out his welcome with most of the players, except for his close friends like Moss.

He has already had his prime. Taking nothing away from his achievements, he hit the wall physically during the mid part of 2008, and he has been fading fast ever since. You can't count on him to make a full season injury free. He isn't the guy that's going to go out there and get you 100 yds a game anymore.

I think the smartest move the team could make would be to get a young RB, not a retread like some of these old guys we are bringing in. We have one old worn out back. Getting another 30 year old back is ridiculous. We need someone who can step in this year when they will have to, and lead this team at the RB position.

Who says they won't also take a RB in the draft?

Because aging players are the only ones available until April 22.

Question....does this mean that Portis will not go to Miami this year and be participating with the entire team in the off season program?

Does'nt he normally stay in the Miami area in the off-season and do his own off season work out program at the U?

Obviously he considers Portis a leader, they both know each other well and know what to expect. Everybody's going to be on board initially to make that first impression, that includes Carlos and Landry as well. They've all undoubtedly gotten the message.
