Why? Because Jansen's back? Admittedly, Jansen's a good player, but is one player going to suddenly make Portis the goal-line maven he was in Denver? That's a stretch.


Let's not forget about Samuels... who started playing like a top OL by year's end.

Then he leaves "running back heaven" and he has a non top 10 year. BUt just because it's Clinton freaking Portis he's supposed to put up 1,500 and 15 again.


Please dont mention Portis in the same sentence as Anderson, Gary and Droughns...

If you really were to watch the 4 play, you'd know that CP is not even bad enough to be near the other four, if you cut off his left leg.

blah blah blah... I love Portis. He's so awesome. He's the best! :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t :-t (I'm puking here.)



Yes, if you like to gamble pick Portis. If you want to know what you will get pick Rudi.

By the way, Rudi offers a great RB with solid stats with peace of mind. Portis is no guarantee. You people act like its written in stone that Portis is a lock for 1500 yards and 15 td's. He is DEFINATELY not a safe pick for that. Rudi is safe to at least repeat last year, then if you like gambling, throw in the fact that he could be better this year.

Why gamble?

You dont know what you will get with Rudi. To me he is a question mark as well. I can honestly see Chris Perry getting some more carries this year.

I am not bashing on RJ, but I think Portis is in the tier above Rudi.

Perry couldn't carry his own butt to the toilet without injuring himself for the season. What in the world makes Rudi a risk???? His non injury proneness? His solid tough play last year with the NFL's hardest schedule?

I honestly love both backs and would love to have either on my team. Rudi has shown he can be a 1300 /11 guy...with the promise of an upcoming offense...maybe that will get his TDs up a bit more.

Portis has been more than a 1300/11 guy. He's seen the peak and combine the enigmatic Redskin O...it's hard to see him returning to a top 5 back.

What do you value more..potential or probable?

Regardless of whether Rudi is solid or not... there is nothing that will change my mind enough to take Rudi over CP.

IMO Portis is a second tier and Rudi is a third tier RB.

Well at least we know you are being reasonable about this, as opposed to close minded. :-)

I have done enough research to know that I wouldn't take Rudi over Portis... so long as both are healthy.

I had to choose between them in one draft...

And was offered Rudi in a deal for Portis in another league.

Both times I chose Portis.... And would do it every time again.
