John Riggins said much more inflammatory things than CP. Lavar Arrington caused much more distraction than him.

Portis is a hard worker despite his past of sitting out practices and preseason. He shows up on Sunday and sacrifices his body for the team. With a little attitude adjustment that Shanahan has brought to him in how Portis views preparation for the season...he'll be a surprise this season.
JR said off the wall stuff but he never talked about players like CP has done. If I'm correct Lavar only started running his mouth when his relationship with the front office went south.

Well, I just don't trust CP after the last two seasons, no matter what he says. He's not a true Redskin and never will be a team player.

There's definitely a new sherriff in town. That's probably the most I've ever heard CP toe the company line. Good. If he keeps it up, he may just earn his way back into my good graces.

You should try watching more Redskin games.

The transformation that has taken place among both players and fans alike since Shanahan came to town has been nothing short of amazing.

Just a few months ago when all the controversy was stirring about exchanges between LaVar, Campbell and Portis, fans far and wide had Portis under the bus with his ticket punched...destination out of town. One could conclude now that the views have done a complete 360, Portis is going to be a "we" instead of an "I" and a complete team player void of complaint. Once the decision was made to keep him on the roster, there was no doubt he was going to be about saying and doing all the right things. I think it's safe to say we all want him to have a prosperous season along with the rest of the team.

Re: Clinton Portis Interview -- Part 1

I dont think he will be close to a 1500 yard back. Too much talent to do that. The question remains how are they going to divide up carries between the 3.

On the field I agree, just look at the way the guy blocks.

Off the field though he's said his share of dumb things that just make you wanna toss him out a window.

If he wasn't a team guy he'd whiff blocks, miss pickups, etc all of the time. The guy gets beat up doing that more than running. Remember the shoulder? Tackling after an interception. Show me what RB that does what he does that we should replace him with as far as being a team player out on the field.

Re: Clinton Portis Interview -- Part 1

Portis plays hard but I wouldn't call him a team player.

Re: Clinton Portis Interview -- Part 1

Not the part about him playing hard, cuz I think we'll see plenty of that! But the team part. I could see Portis fall in behind a real leader like McNabb. Has CP ever had the true leader in a QB?

Change has already happened and if he wants to stay on the team...he WILL step up.

Or step back (and up, simultaneously). Not sure what I'm talking about.
