What's Going on with Portis? (Updated)

Not sure what's going on with Clinton Portis, who seemed to have a heated exchange with Jim Zorn. Maybe he was upset that we've seen a lot of Shaun Alexander already. Portis has the hip and other ailments, and players and coaches have been going over to him on the bench. Still, Portis went in on the next series.

Whatever was going on with Portis, the team said it was not medical. Players continued to visit him on the sideline appeared to be consoling or encouraging him

Very odd and we may not get the details until after the game

Not worried about it. CP and the team will pull this out. 980 SUCKS! Miss 6 straight plays.

He was prolly telling Zorn to stop messing around with that right side and plow the left

So far, this drive is starting to look a bit more agressive and Redskins ball.

Posted by: RGMBill | October 26, 2008 1:56 PM | Report abuse

Nothing wrong w/ CP in the 1st series. Zorn runs Alexander waaay too early, yells at CP on the sidelines and he loses his stride.

Stop the histrionics JLC - I thought you were better than that

Someone tell Zorn to stop talking to Joe Gibbs. Also the Reffing here is awful.

Posted by: alex35332 | October 26, 2008 2:04 PM | Report abuse

Zorn letting PORTIS know who has the bigger balls. ZORN is blowing the calls. Skins will loose this game. Why go for that field goal. Crap !!!!! should have went for it . Skins loose by 14

Bad Calls, Turnovers, Penalties, Turmoil on the Sidelines... what else do you need to get upset?

That's one of the worst calls I have seen, and it cost us points.

Almost like another TO

Now we starting to see the 1st year coach. If zorn loose this game he should be fired. how in the world can you loose to 2 winless teams ????

Ok, remain calm - First Half as bad as can be for Skins, only down 4, got a little Mo on the field goal...

Still, it's all Jasno's fault.

For that matter, it's about to be 10-6 Dallas-Tampa.

J-Cam, 16-19, 186 yrds. But we cannot get in the end zone.

I know Jansen wanted to hear his number called, but somebody should tell it's not the same when the refs keep calling his number.

They need to take more shots downfield - what's been tried has worked... if we can just keep from getting stupid penalties!

Posted by: johnvandermyde | October 26, 2008 2:28 PM | Report abuse

This is so far where Zorn is failing....he is not able to spark the team to play inferior foes ala Norv Turner...disgusting copy of Rams game so far

right shots down the left side are working. Just get Moss another 3 feet off the boundary.

With Samuels out, we are having some difficulty running left. I think we will see more passing in 2nd half.

Posted by: frediefritz | October 26, 2008 2:33 PM | Report abuse

WASHINGTON UP 6-0 AT THE HALF

Penalties that was till 17 sec. left and Detroit finally got called for one. They had to call one, could have been an untied shoe lace.

Skins looked scatter shot. Long throws and somewhat ineffective on the run (after the first drive). Not quite the well oiled west coast machine. Portis showing some fight, drive. Hope it carries over to the field.

Posted by: chavez66 | October 26, 2008 2:38 PM | Report abuse

Zorn needs to kick some butt, and he needs to motivate some people.

Personally, I wouldn't start with Portis.

Dumbest STFU "Stat" this Season Alert:

Play-by play announcer said right before his 2nd attempt: "Of Suisham's four FG misses, 3/4 have missed to the left"...

and then again right before his 3rd attempt, after missing the 2nd FG to the right, the announcer said, "once again, we would like to remind everyone that of Suisham's 5 FG misses, 3 have missed to the left."

WTF kinda "stat" is that...I guess FOX thinks its possible to divide 5 evenly by 2?!!!
