Clinton Portis Quote:
"It's only a matter of time before I have a 200-yard game," Portis said. "It's only a matter of time before I have a 150-yard game. It's only a matter of time before I get two or three touchdowns.” – Are you kidding me?
I’m guessing this is what DeAngelo Hall is referring to when he said this:
We've got a lot of people in here that think they're better than they are. You can look at it and tell. They're not practicing. This isn't the preseason; this is the real deal.”
And then this weeks practice report seems to back up exactly what Hall is talking about:
“Nursing a calf contusion, Portis was present but wasn't wearing pads and wasn't participating. Fullback Mike Sellers sat out with bruised quadriceps.” -- Isn’t a calf contusion a fancy way of saying he has a bruise. And since when has a quad bruise held Mike Sellers out of anything.
This is ridiculous! Okay, tell me how painful a calf and quad bruise can be and how it’s not necessary for your starting FB and HB to practice during the week, particularly when you are 1-2 and have just lost to the 0-19 Lions. Where is the motivation? Where is the sense of urgency?
