i don't think the skins are "vastly overrated" but I do question the wisdom of a 700 page playbook. I don't think I could memorize 700 pages to be honest, millions or not. Granted, portis probably doesn't need to know all of that, but his qb and blockers do.
I wonder if by the time they learn it, it will be too late. all else being equal though, I'm taking portis. that dude is simply dynamic and makes the whole complexion of that team different.
Sjax is good and all, but if I had to choose, I would say that Portis has more things going for him than against him when compared to jackson. For: More talented, more talented coach, team that was built around him sooner than st. louis was built around jackson. Against: injury. That's not nothin', but at the same time, anyone can go down in this game, I don't find it worth worrying about too much honestly, because anyone who is on a fantasy roster is a massive target in real life, and people will take their shots when they can. Other than fred talyor and some other examples, a lot of these injuries seem, if not fluky, unpredictable and not representative of "injury prone."
Plus, Kid Bro Sweets is hysterical. And I'm an eagles fan. So there you have it.
The opening scene of the movie "Saving Private Ryan" is loosely based on games of dodgeball Brian Dawkins played in second grade.
