You should thank the NFL for moving Seattle out of the AFC into the NFC.
Now Denver will only be 4th in the AFC West instead of 5th.
Seattle was nice, it was kinda like being in the AFC North with Cleveland... two easy wins a year. It's nice to see that the niners and rams will be able to use them as their own personal tackling dummies, though. And hey, now that they're in a division with the Cards, maybe they'll even win a couple.
Seriously, the nerve of a Seahawk fan talking trash about the priveledge of being dismissed from the toughest division in the NFL for being too weak... be grateful, worm, be grateful that the football gods took pity on you. If you doubt this, just watch this upcoming season, because I see you're slated to play all 4 of us.
By the way, to answer your question, the Portis question isn't even a question. He has too much respect for Shannahan to do anything. Besides, he knows that the Bronco O-line made him what he was last year, and unless he's stupid, he'd stick behind it for as long as possible. If he produces this year, Shannahan will talk turkey, but 1500 yard rushers are not an anomoly up here in The Mile High, which is ironically the most passer-friendly city around... except in the winter.
