A question for the Portis people......

So I was listening to some sports talk radio this afternoon.....and they brought up some things about Larry Johnson in KC.  The thing that peaked my interest was the fact that Chiefs fans started a petition for the Chiefs to drop him so he did not break Priest Holmes all-time Chiefs record.  Now.....I am not comparing any of CP's shenanigans with what Larry Johnson has been arrested/charged/accused of, but is CP the name we want at the top of our all-time rushing list?  John Riggins is at 7472.......Portis is at 6597........876 yards and he is our all-time leader (per Pro-Football-Reference.com ).  I am not suggesting a position on this necessarily....but want to hear some other opinions.  If I had to go one way or the other.....I guess I don't really mind.  In our situation....Riggins does embody what it is to be a Redskin and he is a fan favorite....but he didn't live the "cleanest" of lives.  In the Chiefs situation....Holmes was never anything but a true pro....on and off the field.  Because of that....I don't know that the same resentment would apply to CP here!  I just know if he gets it.....it would still be hard to not think of Riggins as the better of the 2.  Maybe I am alone on that.....so what do you say?
