Isnt it funny the "Shanny effect" has had on CP...he not saying anything stupid, giving 110%, participated in preseason, mentor to the younger players....its really been a 180.

Nothing funny about it. He's in his last year here. He needs to do something to give the redskins a reason to resign him. I dont think that its' not 100% genuine, but Portis, for all his faults, is no dummy, and he knows his normal behavior won't fly in a contract year.

Good point. Portis got a hard look at two washed up RBs in the offseason that showed him how irrelevant you can become when you don't play at the same level as before (Parker) and when your mouth gets you in trouble (LJ).

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

Sure money could have something to do with it, but I also think he's seeing his career winding down and he's appreciating it a little more than he might have a few years ago.

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

Gerat news with the MRI results, but I'd want him to sit out this week so we have him for the 3 remaining division games.

I think he'll be like 85%, but most people are this time of the year.

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

Only way I want to see Portis on the field this week is if he's in for screens / pass blocking, that's it.

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

Takes a lot of courage to do what Portis is doing. A lot of players would just call it quits with the type injury he's trying to recover from.

lol...that train is never late

I think he would love to retire as a Skin. I really think he is sincere this year and if he plays this week, wow, what an example he sets for others. That injury must be extremely painful.

Re: Portis is back, will play Sunday

I hope he never gets a rush attempt again as a redskin, it's amazing how much better our running game turns into when he gos out of a game. I do respect his blocking but at this point that's all he is good for.

I think I have been watching different games. Portis was hitting the holes hard in the titans game before he went out
