    Guess Miles Austin isn’t the only receiver listening to Michael Irvins advice after all.

    Bob Cohn of the Washington Times wonders if Redskins RB Clinton Portis’s best days are behind him.
    Oh really? I kinda thought Portis had a few 1,500 yard, 14 TD seasons left in him. Dumbass.

    “Guess Miles Austin isn’t the only receiver listening to Michael Irvins advice after all.”
    I love it when Eagirl fans whine about physical football.

    “The Jaguars haven’t been able to sell tickets to their games and will now have to compete with an arena football team.”
    I am sure the Jaguars will be competing for dollars with an arena team that plays in the spring. Seriously, arena tickets are like 10 dollars. If Josh Alper was at a comedy club, he would be a lame warmup act.

    Someone remind Bob Cohn that many Redskins fans were thinking Portis’s best years were behind him….before LAST SEASON.
    Kudos to Portis for wanting to fit his coach’s system, but the worst thing he EVER did to his career was put on those 20+ lbs., so he could be a between the tackles runner. But, at least he showed due respect to a HOF coach like Joe Gibbs.

    I love it when Cowboys fans get their hopes up, only to be heartbroken when Romo has a Romo December.

    Neither Ahman Green or Clinton Portis has anything left in the tank. Neither even seems serviceable at this point in their careers.
