Tier 1 - LJ, SA, LT
Tier 2 - Portis
Tier 3 - Tiki, Rudi, Jackson, Jordan

I think that Portis is more likely to put up #'s closer to the 1st tier guys than to Tiki.

My $.02


I can go for that. However, Rudi is about as sexy as a 1990 honda civic.

I love the guy but, I have a better feeling about Portis this year.

Al Saunders is supposed to be a genius, who can get the passing game going, opening up more lanes for Portis. Skins will have better/more options this year than in a long time. Portis has been close to Tiki's production even though he had a scheme that wasn't favorable to him. Now, he has an offense that should be really complimentary.

Tiki has pretty much the same system, but Eli should be better this year - thats favorable. Tiki is getting older....

Portis has better offense this year and better defense to let them run.


I think Portis is the best bet after the top 3 and I think he may actually crack the top 3. Why am I wrong? Why havn't I seen any real "experts" say this?


Huh? I've seen tons of people including experts say that he's #4. There's no chance in heck that I'd ever rank him over LJ, LT or SA though. Saying that he could crack top 3 isnt a very bold prediction (Chances are, at least one of the 3 will get hurt or underperform). But saying that he will specifically beat out one of those 3 is much more bold.

Thats what I'm saying. :) I think he has the opportunity to beat LT and LJ but not SA..... We'll have to see.
