Rosenhaus optimistic about Portis' Redskins future

On his Twitter account today, running back Clinton Portis's agent said he expected Portis to play again as a Redskin.

"After speaking with Clinton's doctors, I have been assured that he will make a complete recovery in time for the 2010," according to the tweet from agent Drew Rosenhaus. "The decision to place Clinton on I.R. is purely a precaution, and he will be ready for 2010 and beyond. We are very optimistic about his Redskins future."

Portis is guaranteed most of his $7.2 million base salary in 2010. Although today's move was not entirely unexpected because of the amount of time Portis has been sidelined, his teammates were nonetheless disappointed and expressed concern about Portis's health.

"Clinton is a tough guy, he's real tough, and he's definitely been the face of the franchise of the Redskins the last few years," wide receiver Devin Thomas said. "It's tough when you lose a guy like that for the rest of the season. He's one of those guys like [tight end] Chris Cooley, a Pro Bowler who means a lot to our offense. You look forward to seeing those guys play.

"But you also look forward to seeing those guys in the locker room and just being around the team. As a young player, those are the guys you watch and you learn a lot from. You could say they definitely leave some big shoes to fill. But the most important things is their health. Clinton's been a great player for a long time, so you just want to make sure his health is good."

The problem with the WaPo writers is that they treat the players as if they were WalMart or Home Depot employees being needlessly laid off.

These guys are making 6 and in most cases 7 figures to play a game. When they don't come through in the clutch, they're cut.

Get over it.

Wow!!! His agent is optimistic. How about extending his contract by a couple of years? That ought to go well with no offensive line and no QB, once they dump JC for the next Ryan Leaf.

When you're 3-9, does it make any sense to cut an 86% FG kicker?

Yes, if you think the next guy might be better. Gano gets to try out and win the job. Suisham is going to be available if the Skins want him back.

One of the few things that 4th and I have disagreed on. Suisham had a horrible year last year and failed to finish games this year. That's what an NFL kicker is supposed to do. His weak kickoffs were a problem too.

I've watched the Skins running game since Portis has been out. It looks to me that, while the O line needs some help, that Portis was a big part of the problem. The 'no name' running backs we have now seem to be gaining a lot more yardage than Portis did.

FF Update (in multiple parts)

The regular season comes crashing to an end, and surprises were plentiful in the Peeps league, and the 6 playoff teams are set.

Capturing the #1 seed is Tampa (9-4), the only 9 win team in the league. Tampa's 107-66 over the Jackalopes (7-6) was led by Rivers 23 points. Tampa won his last 5 games, beating two of the leagues 8-win teams in the process. One key reason for Tampa's surge, adding Sidney Rice midway through the season. While Rivers led Tampa in scoring he also had Tampa 2 top ten RBs, a top ten WR and defense and a top 5 kicker. The Jackalopes started the season with 6 wins in 8 games, despite tough opponents. But the Jackalopes success came despite a relatively low scoring team, and they faded down the stretch along with his top scorer, Matt Schaub, to miss the playoffs in a tie breaker.

The Jackalopes loss opened the door for Future Winners to capture the 6th and final playoff spot, and he did with a 68-51 win over the Buffaloes (8-5). Aaron Rodgers, the league's #4 scorer, led Future. The Buffaloes missed out on a bye week with the loss and are seeded 4th. Future won 4 of his last 5 games to seize the final playoff spot. With a top QB, two good RBs and a deep receiving corp, Future could do some damage in the playoffs. Meanwhile, the Buffs finished just 1 game behind the league leader, leveraging a 6-2 start into a playoff berth. Brett Favre and Randy Moss, the #1 WR, led the Buffaloes in scoring.

Posted by: chrislarry | December 8, 2009 4:28 PM | Report abuse

The Buffs loss saved Futaleufu (8-5) from falling losing the bye. The Futa, seeded #2, led the league in both points scored and points against, won the tie breaker vs both the Buffs and Alex's Zombie Hord, the #3 seed. The Hord (8-5) topped Futa (8-5) this week, 110-99. Meacham and Brees combined for 54 points to lead the Hord. Of note, Meacham and Brees combined for 29 points AFTER Suisham's missed FG.

Amazingly, the Futa's opponents averaged 96 points per game, a stunning result since no other team averaged even 95 points per game. Opponents scored 97 or more points in 8 of the 13 games vs the Futa. Futa was led by Chris Johnson, the QB (Rodgers, then Brady) and Ray Rice. The Hord finished strong, with 3 straight wins and over 110 points in each of those games. The Hord was led by Brees all season long, and had a 100 point or higher scorer at every position, except for the defense. Ironically, the Hord's best single game score, 126 points, came in a loss to Redcoats Fins, who scored 145 in the season's highest scoring shoot out.

Redcoat's Fins (7-6) are also is in the playoffs as the #5 seed, despite a loss to Omaha Steers (6-7) by a 74-54 score. Fins was among the league's high scorers, but lost 5 of 6 down the stretch. In part, it was due to an injury to Ronnie Brown. In part it was due to his opponents, who averaged a blistering 106 points per game against him in that 6 game stretch. Adrian Peterson led the Fins in scoring, with romo close behind and the #1 Saints defense a key contributor. The Steers season began with 4 straight losses, with 3 of those losses to teams scoring 99 or more points. A 146 point outburst in week 5, the highest single game score in the league this year, changed things a bunch and the Steers won 6 of their last 9 games. Michael Turner led Steers, even with his late season injury, with Roddy White also delivering solid points. He also had the 2 defenses tied for second, the Packers and Broncos.

Nate (3-10) and the South HIll Skulls (4-9) played to an 84-84 tie, with Skulls winning the tiebreaker. Nate's season was compromised by Crabtree's holdout and injuries to brian westbrook, Antonio Bryant and Matt Cassel. Peyton and Reggie Wayne were Nate's top scorers. Skulls had the misfortune to select Jay Cutler as his QB, coupled with injuries to both RBs and WRs, made for a rough season. Maurice Jones-Drew led Skulls, and his philly defense was also a major force.

The East Coast Shaft (5-8) fell to Forever 4-12 (6-7), 136-82. 4-12 was the week's highest scoring team, the 3rd highest scoring team in the league and the only team to exceed 130 points twice during the year. All but one of 4-12's players scored 12 or more points this week -- and he had 85 bench points! For all the huge scoring numbers, however, 4-12 missed the playoffs. Among his games, a 1 point loss, a 2 point loss a 7 point loss, while he had 3 wins by 40 or more points. Only 3 times did his opponent score less than 80 points. Warner led 4-12 in scoring, but he had balance. 4-12 had 100 point scorers in 8 of his 9 slots -- every slot except kicker -- and 10 triple digit scorers in total. Shaft, meanwhile had his two high draft picks fall flat, Matt Forte and Steve Smith, resulting in a challenging season. Big Ben was Shaft's top scorer, with Wes Welker also coming up big.

The finish to the regular season in the Hamster league was filled with things going more or less as expected.

The Cal Salmon (10-3) eliminated Dealer (7-6), with 78-52 win. Larry Fitzgerald led Salmon with 21. Salmon won 8 of their last 9 games to finish the regular season in 1st place and garner a bye. Aaron Rodgers led the Salmon in scoring. Meanwhile, Dealer finished 7-6, a 4 game mid-season losing streak hurting his chances . Dealer made a strong push despite underachievers Jay Cutler and Matt Forte, and a midseason injury to Frank Gore, . Dealer's 145 point score in week 2 to beat Salmon was the highest score in any game in the league this season.

Suzanne's Trippin Billies (9-4) finished 2nd and also claimed a bye. Her final game was a 104-61 win over the E Funk All Stars (6-7). A 6-0 start to the season keyed the Billies top finish and Jones-Drew was her top scorer. The Billies and Salmon tied for 3rd in scoring in the league, 7 points behind cL's F Bombers. E Funk lost his last 3 games, playing 3 of the league's 4 highest scoring teams to finish the year. E Funk was always competitive, and led by Peyton's strong play all season long.

Meanwhile, cL's F Bombers (8-5) finished off the season with a 95-80 win over 4th's Realskins (8-5), with Philip Rivers leading the way for cL. cL won 6 of his last 7 games, topping 100 points 5 times in the process to finish 2nd in points scored and is the 4th seed. cL's strong finish came with a surge in performance of his RBs Steven Jackson and Maroney, plus the addition of Jamaal Charles. Realskins came close to securing a bye, but fell short and is the 6th seed in the playoffs. After losing his first 2 games, Realskins won 8 of 11, despite only crossing the 100 point mark once. Ricky Williams was a huge in season pickup, while brent celek, and Rock Cartwright were also valuable additions.

Alpa Chino (4-9) defeated Zornskins (8-5), 126-78 in Alpa's best game of the year. Brees, Addai, Boldin and Devin Thomas all scored 20 or more points for Alpa. Even with Brees, Alpa struggled, notably Steve Slaton failed to pull his weight this year. Zornskins captured the 5th seed, winning 5 of 6 games between week 7 and 12. Zorny stocked up on NFC East players (westbrook, romo, barber, mcnabb, mccoy avant), but no Redskins. During the season, he picked up two stellar WRs, Sidney Rice and miles austin. He also added Michael Crabtree, a solid fill-in for the suspended Dwayne Bowe.

Posted by: zcezcest1 | December 8, 2009 4:31 PM | Report abuse

The #3 seed goes to Stump's Coproliths, who led the league in scoring by quite a bit. Chris Johnson, Randy Moss and Vernon Davis were each #1 at their position, while his philly defense was #2 overall. He has 4 RBs and 3 WRs in the top 20 in their respective categories, plus Kurt Warner at QB. All in all, Copro looks to be a formidable force in the playoffs. Yet Copro could have missed the playoffs had he lost and Dealer won. But Copro took care of business with 128-59 win over Butz for Utz (2-11). Copro had 7 players in double figures. Butz for Utz suffered with her Redskins, including Clinton Portis and LaDell Betts. Still, despite the struggles, both of her wins came over playoff teams, cL and Realskins. Ray Rice led Butz in scoring.

The last game between Sween's Ham Stweengs (5-8) and the KoolAid Kids (3-10) ended, appropriately enough, in a 77-77 tie, with Stweengs winning the tiebreaker. Robert Meacham's 30 led Stweengs, overcoming 25 from Tom Brady for the Kids. Despite a solid roster led by Brady, DeAngelo Williams and Wes Welker, the Kids lost their first 5 games and never seriously contended. Stweengs meanwhile, suffered through a 6 game losing streak that wiped out his 4-2 start. QB troubles (Ryan) plus an inconsistent results from LT and Mike Sims-Walker plagued the Stweengs. Stweengs also dropped Jamaal Charles and Sidney Rice, two guys who performed well late in the year. Stweengs top point getter was the Saints #1 ranked defense.

Kind of interesting how Suisham's kicks were not to win but to "ice" the games. 3 points we didn't get. He blew it, and got cut.

Landry and Carlos have combined to donated probably 35 points between them on whiff's, blown coverage, double-move-jock-drops and BS tackles - many of which came late in the fourth quarter and directly lead to us LOSING the game, and they say "hey man, nothing I could do. Blo me." and they still start. Not cut, not benched (well, Carlos got benched for almost ten minutes until someone got hurt...)

I gaurentee that atleast 30 of the 32 teams in the NFL (Not For Long League) would have dumped Swiss HAm today based off of 2 and one half seasons dating back to the playoffs of 2007. He's a kicker, not too many stay a long time.....

Can we move on. We can't even discuss the great game JC17 had. Some people are ready to annoint him, and I'm like, 'Not sooo fast My Friend.'

HE needs to do what he did consistently for the next 4 games. And possibly give us at least one come from behind victory where he drives the team in for the win with little to no time remaining.....

Look, they played a good solid game, the Saints are considered the number one team in the NFL right now, and the skins went toe to toe with 'em. Yes, they lost, yes there wrer mistakes on offense and defense and especially special teams. But I am more encouraged by what I have seen in the past three weeks of losses than I have in any one of the three wins. Jason is a very good quaterback and we need to keep him and get him a solid O line. The younguns are stepping up, and the backups are playing well. The season for us is done, but smile, THERE IS HOPE!!! (Keep Zorn, he said by year 3 they would get it, and they are!!!)

Want to correct what REDDMV wrote about me in regard to LL. I said he was the best SS in the game when someone else had his back. There aren't any other safties on the squad capable of playing FS. We need to draft one, and I'm pimping for ERIC BERRY. There won't BE any LT available worth a franchise tag left in the draft in '10 by pick number five(ours). If there is grab him. If not, why draft projects like RINEHART just to say we need a fix for the o-line? The great tackle draft is gone. GET a LT in free agency not in the draft. Pick in the second round of the draft for a good RT, a JON JANSEN type who was solid not spectacular, and a guard in the fourth or fifth round, preferably a LG. Use the last pick for the best available.

Meanwhile sign the best free agent K, OLB and CB.

DRAFT:

#1 ERIC BERRY - FS
#2 RT(thirty-seventh overall).
#4 OT
#5 LG
#7 LB or Best available player.

FA:

Best LT, K, OLB, and CB. Keep JONES for back-up LT.

It will be an uncapped year so DAN can run wild. Resign ROCKY McINTOSH for three, and JASON CAMPBELL two-year, incentive-laden contract.

Put ORAKPO on the line where he belongs. Move MOORE to teams solely. Cut SMOOT if his contract allows it, WYNN, and HOLMES. Leave PORTIS to his own devices. I think he wants out of WASHINGTON. Keep BETTS and GANTHER.

Ofcourse he is. That's his job. How obvious. Vulture picking sob.

I would like to see Portis back. It is not beyond the realm that CP has taken this year off. That's not a bad plan. It has given others a chance to play, him time to rest and assess and recharge. If ANY improvement is made in the "O" line he could have a fine year on 2010. I expect that he will amid many other changes at Redskins Park.
