Good for Lavar.

I remember watching the Portis interview the other day and my mouth was just hanging open wondering why he was saying what he was saying. There might also be some more beef with Sellers after that interview.

Portis just talks too much, and some discussions should always be kept between teammates.

This has nothing to do with Portis.

Everyone think we got some robbery from that deal.

We got a huge contrract and a bust.

In fact, Portis' contract was dwarfed by Bailey's.

The FACT is, Shanahan would not negotiate new deals untill the last year.

Now look at what has happened!

BM, Kuper, Hillis, Doom, (Cutler) ALL no mention of even negotiation.

Like I said a year ago, the whole class of 06 will be gone.

And BTW, Portis gave everything he had, and is the skin's second leading rusher in an age of the pass.

I think Champ has been way more important to this franchise than Portis ever would've been

I don't know if that was sarcasm, but a RB like Portis touches the ball more.

The fact Shanahan couldn't draft WTF for years untill the Goodmans has now been replaced by even more incopmpetence.

I have to dissagree. Champ is a far more valuable player than Clinton ever thought of being.

That isn't the issue.

Was Getting a QB salary CB and a bust RB worth the trade?

I've listened how that trade was so fantastic for 5 years.

Who picked off Manning and Favre for 2 pick 6's?

An UDFA.

That's the point, idiot. He's supposed to touch the ball more than your shutdown corner. Portis is not even top 5 at his position this decade. Champ is one of the greatest ever at his. We owe the playoffs in 2006 to Champ. This is an absurd argument.

in 06 champ had what may be the best year for a cornerback, ever. i dont think portis has broken the top 25 with any of his years.

Portis wasn't a workhorse back like Morono, plus, we paid him what washington would not.

It's more important to have 5 corners thanone great one, especially isf your goig to isolate him on on side.

I supported the trade for Bailey since really good CB's are harder to find and Shanahan had more a history of finding good RB's than CB's in the draft.

Let's see if this works. It was an interview for NFL Network that originally was asking Portis if he was excited to play for Shanahan again, then he gets pressed on the issue (because he asked to leave the Broncos). Then, he gets into the team strife that occurred between Redskins this year (makes comments about Sellers and Arrington). The Sellers thing is pretty funny on the outside, but probably not very good for team harmony.

This was the best trade ever. Portis hasn't done shiat compared to Bailey. If you think otherwise you just have hate blinders on right now. Remember the last playoff win at home? If not let me refresh your memory, Bailey won that game for us. Bailey has been everything and more for the Broncos. Portis has been just so-so for Washington.
