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.

Portis was wearing #3 all weekend, but that will obviously have to change.

Portis should not made an issue of the whole thing. He should of just asked him and if he said no get another number. There are other good numbers to wear that good RBs have worn.

Iffy has gained a bunch of respect last year when he didnt want to give it to Morton, but even more so now that he won't back down to Portis.......Its Iffy's #, why should he, Portis got the money, so unless some of the green is changing hands, Iffey should keep it

Did Portis really make that big of a deal out of it? I have heard a comment here and there, but form what I heard it wasent really that big of an issue.

I get the impression it isn't an issue. Apparently Portis suggested they box for it - yeah that's really going to happen, I can't imagine ANY coach letting his players beat the crap out of each other for a #!

I agree that Coles has class, but its a little early to be suggesting that Portis doesn't and will make a big deal of this. lets let it play out before passing judgement

Skinsguy,
I might be wrong, but #16 for Kansas City is a retired number. I believe Hall of Famer and Super Bowl winner Len Dawson used #16. The only SuperBowl KC has ever won. So to say Montana is a better person than Portis is wrong.
I seem to recall a discussion between Montana and Dawson about the KC number 16. Montana never used it so Dawson must have told Montana to go........
A little different than this situation.

From what I've read and heard Portis hasn't made a big deal out of it, he's always referred to it in a joking manner, it's not like he's ticked off and pouting about it.

If I was him I'd take another # and move on. He's already offered Iffy an undisclosed amount of money, if he doesn't take it there's not much else you can do.

Portis said something along the lines of "Tell him Portis dont look good in no number 3" or somethign like that. We'll see what happens I guess.

Iffy has had #26 for 3 years...it's his to do with as he pleases. Portis wants #26, but picked #3 for camp.....just take #36 and be done with it.....

cpayne5:

You said that this is probably Iffy's last stand and that this will be the last memorable thing he does as a Redskin. I have no quarrel with that.

However, I do need your help here. What were some of the memorable things he did in the past as a Redskin? If they were memorable, I must have been on some other planet when they happened, because ... I can't remember them! :confused:

His INT return for a TD against the Saints in '02 was a nice play, but that's all that sticks out to me right now.

Hey Matty, can you tell me how the status things work. Smootsmack told me you would explain them to me in another forum. The practice squad, rookie, etc. Thanks

Just wanted to point out one quick thing...

Ifeanyi Ohelete had 103 tackles last year (2nd on the team) and 3 INT's (also 2nd on the team, one behind Smoot's 4). He recorded these totals in 15 games.

Someone please show me a more statistically PRODUCTIVE safety last year please? Well, I'll help you...

When you go to this page Defensive Back Rankings , you will see Defensive Backs across the NFL ranked according to their production (tackles, INTs, forced fumbles, pass deflections, etc.)

You wil be suprised to see that there are NO, I repeat NO NFC defensive backs ranked higher... I know I was suprised. I mean, I knew he had 100 tackles and 3 INTs, which I thought was respectable, but numbers don't lie... he IS a productive safety. I think because he is not a "big hitter" like Roy Williams is supposed to be, or not as well-known as a Mike Minter, he is severely underrated, and sadly, most underrated by us... Redskin fans.

Look, I am not the President of the Iffy club... but I think we could be doing much worse at the position and Ohelete is still only 25. He SHOULD improve. He has EARNED the WASHINGTON REDSKINS #26 and it is his to give up or keep. For someone to assume he should give it up is kind of disrespectful. If he were to have been traded to the Broncos and asked for the number off Portis' back, how hard do you think Clinton would have laughed in his face??

I'm not bashing Portis at all... but come on... it's well documented that the guy is at least SOMEWHAT similar to "Leon" from the Bud commercials. I just think that Portis should take #36 (or did Timmy Smith retire that one? hahaha) or #25 and be done with it... but mostly I wanted to point out that Ohelete isn't quite the sloutch or chump some of you guys make him sound like....
