Portis Costume, Sellers Beard Both Gone

Today's Portis costume.

Major style notes today.

* Portis costume today: Football player. Running back, it would appear. Where's Choo-Choo?

"I'm looking for him," Portis said. "He kept me out of the end zone last week. I'm gonna choke Choo-Choo out when I see him."

Are the costumes gone for good? "Bro, who knows?" Portis said. (How bout the injuries? "Bro, we missing a lot," he said, to a crowd of reporters, or "Bros." "We got a banged up O-line, we got a banged-up everything.")

"Choo-Choo!" said John Eubanks, walking by.

"I'd rather have wins than yards, any day," Portis said, to another question.

* Mike Sellers shaved off the goatee!!! Gone, gone, gone. This morning. Why, Mike, why?

"Time for a change," he said. "You didn't know I'm superstitious? Everybody on the planet knows. [Usually] I make subtle changes; that was drastic. I'm still hurting over the fact that I cut it off. All that time and effort into making it grow...."

* Remember how Fred Smoot dubbed Stephon Heyer the ugliest guy on the team? "He just needs someone to pick on," Heyer said, attempting to take the high road.

* Remember how Jason Campbell advised Antwaan Randle El to find some Miracle Gro for his forehead? "I got something for him," Randle El said. "Believe me." Then he began a very loud rendition of "Hail to the Redskins!" He's got a nice voice, actually.

It took one game to send Choo Choo back into retirement. I don't think we'll be seeing him again this season as their annual free-fall is in effect.

I knew it was way too premature to get back to the costumes.

How 'bout a three or four game winning streak for the team before you break out the costumes, Clinton?

portis is the man, this offense doesn't move unless he carries it. don't put away the costumes b/c of one game, keep your groove going!

All that time and effort into making it grow...."
