Does Clinton Portis know how to score?

Postby Red Stripe » Sun Sep 11, 2005 8:39 pm

I mean come on, 121 yds today against the Bears and doesn't score one TD. He was like this last year, over 1300 yds yet he can only get 5 TD's, I don't really ever get to see many Skins games living where I live so to anyone that watches them, do they even let him touch the ball in the Redzone or do they have like some goalline back.

Well they really only got down there once bro, so he didnt have tons of opportunities. He did run for a buck 20 against a VERY stingy Bears D, what did you want 200 yards and 4 td's?

I have a better question...Does Joe Gibbs know how to coach stud RB's? And the simple answer to that is, NO! He's like afraid to run Portis 3 straight times in the red zone, until he does that Clinton wn't be as effective.

My league rewards TD's pretty big and Portis has been in a TD drought for the last year. Just venting out about it, still kind of bitter because my team sucked this week although I have some great players on it.

Maybe your mistake was drafting Portis in a TD heavy league. You had to know the REdskins aren't going to get him at the goal-line that often. Of course if you drafted him in Round 3 or 4 or somtehing, then I can't blame you for taking him. But he'll never be a TD machine in that offense.

On another note, don't be too upset about 121 yards. It could be worse, you could have gotten a big fat GOOSE EGG from Mike Anderson like I did.
