Ohelete had it first... Portis wants it... and I'm sure Taylor is fond of it too.... pretty interesting situation brewing. I wonder if coaches or management will get involved?
Well, you've already made a MaddenSkins with Portis as #26 so that should be the deciding factor

What did Hasselbeck get in exchange for giving up #8 to Brunell?

Interesting to note that Iffy also refused to give up #26 to Chad Morton last year. The number must mean a lot to him but ironically enough he didn't even wear that number at USC. He was #31

I'm pretty sure u r right about that and they were both at miami for one year when they beat Nebraska for the national title. Atleast I think that was the year they were teammates.

Portis needs to be a man on this one

No way Ohalete should give up his number. Ask for it? No, not even that. The only way Portis should get #26 is if Ohalete volunteered it. You don't come on to a new team and start taking someone else's number. I hate f__ckin' me-first athletes and I sure hope someone helps Portis get his head on straight.The camraderie that Gibbs is bringing back to the 'skins doesn't mesh with that kind of player.

Well, I wouldnt go that far, bleedburgandy. I could understand the fact that Portis would like #26, but I dont see him making all that big of a deal out of it.

Hey... you'll notice... I have a Sean Taylor #26 Maddenskin too... Oh well, I'll just remake 'em when we get this all straightened out...

I do need to get back crankin on my Maddenskins.... I have a SWEET new Coles one where he is jumping over Champ Bailey, making a catch on a long pass... I'll try and put that up today...

Drafting Sean Taylor would make Iffy expendable, but Taylor wears #26 as well. CP would take the number before Taylor had a shot at it but either way they both deserve the number more than Iffy.

In his defense I know I can be a stubborn person and I wouldnt want to give up my number. But for a cut of a 50 million dollar contract I might change my mind.

I don't see a big deal about the number anyways! I might if Portis has been around for years and has already proven himself as a hall of famer, but didn't Montana change his number when he went to K.C.? I could be wrong on that, but I thought he had changed his number to #17 or something like that.

#26 to me just seems like a weird number for a RB anyways. What about the numbers for Brunell and Hasselbeck? If TH stays with the team, we know who's gonna wind up with #8!

Hasselbeck switched to #4. And I think you're right Joe Montana switched to #19 in KC

Another reason Portis has going for him is the fact that the Redskins wanted him and traded a lot to get him. He wasnt a free agent pick up, he was part of a blockbuster trade and if they are going to go through all that effort to get him they might as well throw in the number.

Was Portis in camp? What number did he wear?

Coles wore number 87 with the Jets but swapped without fuss to number 80 on his arrival here as Rod already had 87.... ooopppsss, sorry, I keep forgetting, Coles has CLASS.
