speakin of the Redskins, the pack are playing them this year. Thats gunna suk. That's a team i dont want to play now. Sure, they lost Champ but in return, they got Portis. Then they already hav arrington at LB and that guy is a stud. And once again, they signed Shawn Springs, and him and Champ are like shutdown corners. So wut they did was they traded the best CB in the NFL and got A top 3 RB and in the mix, got another friggin CB. They are officially the Yankees of the NFL. Oh, and they also got Brunell, who's hometown is in my area, so, ya, thats gunna suc
The Redskins will be better, but they won't be that good. Portis has to prove himself outside of Denver, and I don't think he'll be nearly as good in Washington. They have absolutley no offensive line, while Denver has one of the top 5 in the league. Mark Brunell hasn't been good in about 5 years, and he's 33 years old for crying out loud. Shawn Springs used to be good as well, he used to have talent but hasn't shown any since he went to the Pro Bowl in 1998.
And calling Portis a top 3 RB in the NFL is laughable at best.
Running backs I would rather have than Portis: Holmes, LT, McCallister, Williams, J. Lewis and Faulk are 6 RB's I'd much rather have than Portis.
OK box, u hav a point by saying i was wrong about a top three RB, but I'll show u laughable with ur own words;
Williams Faulk and McCallister
Ricky Williams has been figured out. He is a vertical runner with a stiff arm while Faulk is in an offensive system that has a problem at the QB position. And y the hell did u bring up Duce McCallister. That piece of trash couldnt lick the dirt off of Rudy Johnson's shoes. I would say the #1 RB is Jamal Lewis and that may only be because he is in a RB system, and he will never reach 2000 yards again cus TO will actually make the offense balanced. The #2 RB would be a tie between LT and Priest Holmes. Priest surprisingly does better because of the offense he is in, which isnt even a running offense, and LT in my opinion could be the best RB but he's in the wrong system with no O-Line. Then Green and Portis are pretty much in the same league when it comes to skill. Green has the all around game and he can read holes like no other, but Portis has the speed advantage. When it comes down to it, the top RB would be:
4. Green/Portis - Im soooooo sorry
God the Packers are great all around especilly thee offensive line. I mean Brett Farve is amazing no doubt, he can throw up a 60 yard pass to a packer with double coverage and still land it in the packers hand. But without the offensive line that gives him so much time i doubt he would be as greta as he is. but a say with a better defense the packers would deffintly go all the way next year.
Jamal Lewis is a prime example of the wonders of cocaine when you're an athlete. Talk about being a "speed freak".
I don't even see how you could put Tiki Barber and his crippling fumblitis in ANY Top 20 list, and exclude Stephen Davis, who was actually, statistically in the Top 10 in Rushing for 2003, as well as led all rushers in the post season.
By the way, Cowgirls won't be back in the hunt until they can sign a decent punter, quarterback, and recieving core.
As for the Packers, same old story. beth will throw just as many TD's as interceptions in one of his last seasons.
I expect the Buccaneers to be contenders once again, after cleaning house and reworking their entire time, dropping Keyshawn and Lynch, adding on some big name talent.
Well I know there are a lot of packer fans on here but personally I like my hometown team the Carolina Panthers. And they could have won the super bowl if it wasnt for that last damn kick. Man that pissed me off so much that I felt like punching the kicker in the face. Well at least we got close and I hope they will be in the next super bowl.
U know the Pats are a all around amazing team but I am seriously getting sick of them. I flipped when I saw the playoff game between Raiders and pats when they called that bogus pass call he had the ball he went to throw then he brought it back clear as day. Got his ass tackled and fumbled it I mean how easy of a call was that to make from the sidelines but to miss it after reviewing a play. Come on thats BS
I just think that Farve will be a lil bit smarter after the last game he played and dominate even more next year. And Green is just going to get better with experience.
