wow what an unbelievably wrong statement... anyway...
i think portis would do well in the gibbs system and id love to have him. i would drop him out of hte top 5, somewhere from 6-8. id be happy to get him 10th overall if he does go to washington!
Didn't anyone ever teach you that there are no such thing as "wrong" statements?
Why would you say that my statement was "wrong," but then not give any reasons why you feel that way?
How many times did Ramsey get sacked last year and for how many yards? Don't you think those sacks had something to do with his injuries?
Where did Washington fall in terms of rushing yardage last year? Yards per carry? Rushing touchdowns? Rushing first downs?
Was the above by-products of the Spurrier system or the shortcomings of the offensive lineman themselves? What guarantees do you have that the O-line will be any better with Gibbs, who has been out of football for how many years, at the helm?
this isn't last year, these arent' the same coach's and if you think that coachs don't make difference just tune next season, lack of discipline, comraderie between players and coachs, poor play calling ramsey held the ball too long chris samuels was hanging with wu tang working on his rap career, i gurantee all this disappears next season, Joe Bugel will make a huge difference with that O'line now that is a true statement!!!!

I think(and since I have Portis in the KKL, hope) that the 'Skins O-Line is being underrated here. They have a Pro-Bowler in Chris Samuels and they now have a new coaching staff. Sure, they gave up lots of sacks but Ramsey isn't the most mobile QB and with Spurrier's offense, they passed a whole lot. And with the RB's they had to work with, you can't really expect much from the running game.
So, I'll be quoted as saying that Portis' stats won't go down if he becomes a Redskin and they might even go up a little. Of course, this opinion probably has a lot to do with the fact that I have Portis in my keeper league.

i think its hard to tell right now...its a new coach...the offense will look different...and who know what will happen, but id say portis doesnt do quite as well as in denver, but i wouldnt look for a BIG change.
Is it just me or does Washington stand to run into some cap troubles in the near future? Seems to me they signed alot of big name guys to big contracts. Is it the way they structure the contracts that they are avoiding cap problems, are they going to run into cap problems soon or am I just daydreaming?

He stays right where he is at pick #4. If any fools in a redraft want to let him fall to the end of the first round, that's on them. Portis will show you guys that it's not all about the o-line in Denver.
