Portis preaches unity, professionalism

After seven games in 2008, Redskins running back Clinton Portis had 818 yards, four 100-yard games and was leading the NFL in rushing. After seven games in 2009, Portis has 490 yards, no 100-yard games and ranks eighth in the league in rushing.

Now, Portis heads into a bye week knowing that the offensive line he runs behind will be without left tackle Chris Samuels, right guard Randy Thomas and -- almost certainly -- tight end Chris Cooley for the rest of the season.

"It's going to be difficult," Portis said. "We lost two offensive linemen, we shuffled two offensive linemen, now we lose Chris Cooley. The only mainstay from our opening day roster that's on that line is [center] Casey Rabach and [left guard] Derrick Dockery.

"That's it. Everybody else has been shuffled, moved, changed or injured. So we're going out here playing with two guys who were originally the starters. Levi Jones played, we signed him five days ago. That's just the position we [are] in. We got to address and get some depth. We went into the season, and we didn't address that issue and it came back to haunt us. I mean, just as a team, we got to stay together."

Portis said each player must continue to show up to work, and that professionalism is at a premium during difficult times.

"No matter what the case is, you still go to go out and play," Portis said. "All of a sudden, you don't go on the field and just lay down. We still got to go out and play, we still got to go out and execute, we still got to go out and get better."

But Portis also dismissed the idea that veterans can handle the situation for others.

"I don't try to make sure other guys handle it," Portis said. "Other guys got to be accountable for themselves. I got to be accountable for me. I got to make sure Clinton Portis, No. 26 for the Washington Redskins show up and do my thing. Trying to be accountable for other guys, I can't do."

Portis? Professionalism?

Posted by: League-Source | October 27, 2009 1:05 PM | Report abuse

The definition of insanity is going the same thing over and over again and hoping for different results.

-First, ARE has been pathetic on punt returns. It is obvious he is not getting better. I would like to see Devin Thomas back there.

-Second, Portis is just not getting it done. Whenever Betts comes in, teams know he is a receiver. It is time to mix up the personnel in the running game. I don't know if this new kid is anything, but the team already has Betts and Cartwright to mix in there. Seems like when Cartwright gets in there, good things result from it, so maybe he needs to get more touches. BTW, is this because Cartwright is better than we think, or is it because Portis really is that bad in comparison?

-Third, if five offensive linemen can't get the pass blocking done, go to six, or maybe even seven. When your tight ends and full back are staying in to block on almost every play, I don't see the difference. I envision a shotgun formation with two extra offensive linemen in the backfield lined up on either side of the QB, no running back, and three wide receivers.

-Third, Campbell is not looking good. He hears footsteps. He wasn't that good before he started hearing footsteps and now he is just awful. The fumbles are unacceptable. It is time for a change. He is not going to be here next season so why invest any more time in him? I don't care if they pull the kid off the developmental roster and let him start, Campbell's departure is a foregone conclusion at this point and the team needs to start thinking about life after Campbell.

-Fourth, we don't hear about a steady stream of players working out at Redskins park, but that is just what should be happening. When you are this bad, there must be some free agent that can improve the team. Vinny should be working his butt off now trying to find some players who can make a difference. There has got to be another decent offensive tackle out there, and now there are concerns about depth at tight end. I've said it before and I will say it again: the Redskins have the laziest front office in the NFL.

It actually looked like CP ran well in his limited touches. He was hitting it hard, even though it looked like he had no holes to hit. Hard to have a running game, when your down 3 scores, your OL sucks, your entire offense sucks, and Vinny Cerrato is your VPOFO.

Posted by: VaBeachBlitz

I guess my point was they have to do more with what they have instead of slamming Portis into an offensive lineman's back for twenty plays a game. Betts had zero carries last night but he had something like three receptions. Defenses load up on the pass rush when Betts is in there because they know he is not running the ball, so try a shotgun draw or something like that every once and awhile. Let Betts run on 1st or 2nd down. Throw Cartwright in as the wild card. This is waht I am saying. The running game is becoming predictable based on player set and the Skins need to break that habit. Capice?

Dude would be a hell of a lot more convincing if he actually walked the walk... but he can't be bothered to attend to such things as off-season conditioning, pre-season practices, exhibition games, mid week practices, and major stretches of the games themselves -- apparently thinking that all of this sort of training, practice and conditioning is beneath him.

Although he is never too shy about throwing others under the bus as an excuse for his own shortcomings... or throwing little temper tantrums on the sidelines. Yeah, the Dude claims to be a real professional -- but needs to see proctologist about his freaking ego.

Yes, because of a single breakaway run that he didn't finish. 3 points.

He is averaging 4.1 yards per carry. Though if you take away his single long run, he is averaging 3.4.

He is a disaster.

Throwing a helmet, while not a violation, shows poor sportsmanship and an obvious lack of self control on Portis part. It's like a 2-year old throwing tantrums when things don't go his way. Good parents correct behavior like that in their kids. If Portis sees himself as a leader on the team, that kind of childish behavior does not become one.

Pujols had the same injury to his elbow for the cardinals and it required surgery the only reason he played with it was cuz u don't run on yer elbow and you only bat 3-5 times a game. But portis injuries will require surgery after the season but he'll be available for games. but i guess he's a quitter cuz he plays hard every sunday even when hurt . you guys make me sick. cooley's a quitter too.

I am so sick of Portis and his me-first attitude. He is exhibit A of everything that is wrong with the Redskins; paid for previous performance; ownership valuing skill position players over the offensive line; players given favor over the coaches.

My one hope is that Mike Shanahan comes in and cuts Portis so his money can go to building a legitimate offensive line. We'll then see the actual value of Portis when nobody makes a real attempt at signing him.

Posted by: rucks35 | October 27, 2009 8:30 PM | Report abuse

Portis had 109 yards rushing against the Chiefs, which means he has had a 100-yard rushing game this season.
