I could be wrong but it seemed as though that ATV did pretty well in his blitz pickup in the second half.

We had 3 over the hill backs on the squad and Torrain didn't even make the squad.
Even though I thought Torrain would have made the initial cut, I don't trust that he can be a starter in this league....I wish it...but wishing doesn't make it true...and a good GM should never put his trust in a wish. If Portis is seriously injured....we may be forced to make a trade for a decent back...because everyone knows....without Portis, we don't have a starting quality back.

I didn't see the first quarter...so I must be missing all the glory you guys are dumping on Torrain...what I saw was a back that didn't know when to turn upfield and make something out of nothing..and I really dont know if I'd get excited over 1 quarter of work when no team has game planned for you yet. I bet Portis would have done great this year if the blocking was there...that is the real issue...this team has only had 1 game with decent rushing numbers so far...so don't think the situation is resolved.

I like the idea of trading DT for a good back if needed.

And as for Gibbs ruining Portis...that's BS...he a RB...you run him till his tongue falls out when all you have is a running game....then you get a new one.
Remember...he got us to the playoffs twice. At least Gibbs USED all his talent...
Is it better overutilize your talent or underutilize it?
The current coaching staff has been a bit guilty of the latter.
It's not so much about people hating on Portis as it is the realization that all good things must eventually come to an end.

You won't get much of an argument relevant to Portis's skills as a blocker, but to be depended on week in and week out as your featured back, he has to maintain a combined skills set both as a runner and a blocker and be able to stay on the field. His assortment of injuries over the past few years are beginning to take their toll, it's evident his abilities as a runner have visibly declined. Again, not hating on Clinton, just recognizing the obvious, something I don't think is lost on him as well. Like many good r/b before him, they often find it hard to admit to themselves the fact their skills may be [to some degree] diminishing.

re: Portis heard his groin "pop" (out 4-6 weeks)

if we want to pick up lynch we better make more of an offer then the eagles who seem to be expecting vick to be out for some time if they are looking to improve their running game. there is a link on espn about the eagles contacting buffalo yesterday. also there is a pod cast on the espn nfl page about torain, hes talking about his role in the offense.

Well, his running is also going to be missed. He's not a workhorse #1 back anymore, but in a RB tandem he's certainly good enough.

This is all speculation... Nothing can be confirmed from ESPN or Florio.

Hopefully it is not too serious, trainers were stretching CP's groin before he went down.

A "pop" doesn't sound good but Steven Jackson played this week vs the Seahawks with a partial tear of his groin

He and Torain did a solid job against Philly as a one/two....I like that

That list is old. I saw more than a few names who are on teams now.

I agree. I think part of Portis's problem is the fact that when he first arrived Gibbs wanted him to gain weight. He wanted Portis to be a power back when in reality Portis was a shifty back. However Portis did gain the weight and performed admirably. Then when Gibbs left Portis was not the same after he decided he was going to lose weight and become the shifty back again.

I'm not in any way saying Portis sucked, just pointing out that I think Portis was forced into a roll he should not have been forced into then for whatever reason lost a step trying to lose weight. Perhaps part of it was due to age though.

Didn't check that, I was just trying to find a list of RB's to look through and figured people would know who was decent or not. Especially any UFA's or Rookies that got cut.

What's the point of having him when a new injury pops up after every game so far? Hand, ankle, groin. He's been hanging around Haynesworth a little too much?

Torain can't block for squat, but blocking is coachable, being on the downward trek of your career is inevitable, which I feel is where Portis is going. His better years are behind him, the guy is a 2nd stringer, 3rd down back at best.

Every game if we're counting trucks on blocks...ask DeMarcus Ware if CP can still lay people out.

re: Portis heard his groin "pop" (out 4-6 weeks)

i genuinely more concerned with facing mr. rogers and then manning in the next two weeks with the 31st overall passing defense. if we cant stop two of the top qb's in the league who cares if we can run the ball.

LJ is unsigned. The Rams were checking him out last week after we hurt Steven Jackson, but he's still unsigned.


I'd rather have Parker than LJ actually, he looked HORRIBLE.
