Darnell Dockett lets loose on Redskins and Clinton Portis

D. Dockett2.jpgOne reason we love Darnell Dockett’s Twitter account — other than his crush on Oprah — is that the Cardinals defensive tackle tells it like it is.  Or at least how it is, according to Dockett. And according to Dockett, the Redskins have been a mess of late.

Speaking with Lavar Arrington on 106.7 in Washington (via Dan Steinberg of DC Sports Bog), Dockett says he’d have doubts about playing with the Redskins even though he grew up in the area.

He praised the city and the fans but hammered the team’s culture

“There’s a lot of things I don’t like, there’s a lot of things they
do that I couldn’t accept as being a leader. You know, I’ve never seen
an organization that would go out and lose on Sunday and throw a party
Sunday night after a loss and party all week. Like, I couldn’t adapt to
that, and I think that’s one of the reasons that I couldn’t be a part of
an organization, of how they carry their organization.”

He doesn’t think the Redskins have had their values in order.

“I think a lot of guys on that team, winning don’t mean anything. I think
partying and getting paid is a big part of a lot of guys on that team,” Dockett said.

He didn’t say what Redskins he was talking about, but he did say that he couldn’t play with Clinton Portis. 

“From what I’m hearing in the locker room, me personally, I
couldn’t play with a guy like that,” Dockett said.  “I’ve never played, since I’ve been
in the NFL, with a guy that selfish, I’ve never played with guys where
it was all about them, I’ve never played with guys that don’t practice.”

Dockett says publicly what players and teammates surely say behind closed doors.  That’s why we enjoy listening.

  1. you mad bro?
    you didnt get signed by the skins and you never will be. stay in AZ where your team is steadily getting worse punk.

  2. Okay, Darnell, nice job pointing out the flaws of the Zorn administration. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new regime and a new mindset. Give it a chance before you go running your fat mouth in the present tense.
    And personally, I could never play on a team with a lardass who posts shower videos of himself. See? That goes both ways.

  3. He is right, the Skins are and have been the bottom of the barrel. Lets be honest there is a reason that they are Drafting ahead of the Raiders, they have been worse.
    Will Shanny turn it?, lets stop that he is a QB maker right off the bat. Elway was there when he got there and he could not figure out how to win with him for years.
    From Elway it took him all the way to Cutler to find a QB and he went through a bunch of them. The free agents he brought in ran bust by about 8 to 2 and the drafting was way way shacky.
    I can see Docketts point, who would want to play for Washington, Big Albert wants out and it looks like he cannot get out fast enough.

  4. As a Skins fan I have not been happy with the culture under Snyratto, but it’s a new regime with Bruce Allen and Shanahan.
    How does he know what goes on in the Redskins locker room under the new regime or even old regime for that matter?
    Sounds like a bunch of self promotion refering to himself as a leader and in other comments that he “woops ass”. I remember Heyer tossing him like a little bitch after he tried to get in peoples faces after one play. And Heyer is the worst O-lineman on the skins roster.
    This guy is just looking for a big contract from someone and is acting holier than thou to try and get it.

  5. @ bigmike
    Relax there slugger, he is one of the best DT’s in the league and a hell of a lot better than the fat guy you guys got instead. No athlete would want to get signed by the skins, he just telling it how it is and you as a fan are refusing to accept it. It’s one thing to be a proud fan, but allowing pride to replace smarts isn’t a good thing.

  6. @BigMikeSkinsFan
    Oh come on…what Docket is sayin is true. Also, the Cards have been better than the skins for several years now, and my money would be on them to have more wins than the skins again this year. I’m no cards fan, just a person who can see the obvious. The skins are disfunctional.

  7. The real problem last year wasn’t the fact that Portis didn’t practice, or that guys through parties after losses. It was the fact that guys like Jim Zorn and Vinny Cerrato didn’t create anything close to a professional environment. Sure, Portis could have acted more professionally on his own, but being part of a 4-12 team with new front office leadership is a losing battle. I listened to that Darnell Dockett and he did make some interesting points about Haynesworth. Now, if only he (Dockett) could speak above a 7th grade level…

  8. You’re an idiot, BigMike.
    1) You think the Redskins would love to have Dockett on their team now? Obviously yes.
    2) Unless you’re a complete retard, even you should be able to tell that the Cardinals organization is, from top to bottom, much better off than the Redskins right now. That’s got to hurt, being worse off than the pathetic Cardinals, huh?
    I guess that’s you had nothing to say about how true Dockett’s words are.

  9. Of course he wouldnt be signed by the Skins, they only sign over-the-hill, washed up players. Have fun with the Haynesworth mess……lol
    you mad bro?

    ———————————
    And yet the Cardinals are still better than the Deadskins 😀

  11. Well, that means something coming from another NFL player and I agree to some of his comments. People have to remember that when Clinton Portis got injured in pre-season making a tackle he was never the same about practice again. I don’t agree with Portis or his actions at times, but he does help the team and does usually show up to practice just to be there. Now he is not given the reassurance that he can get away with it and has not missed one day of offseason workouts or camps (Hes lost 15-20 pounds) and in shape for camp. One thing about this is Clinton Portis will show up to play even if he doesn’t like it. Dan Snyder has been letting the GM and coach run things as of late. When was the last time Darnell Dockett and the Cardinals beat the Redskins? I think the last time the Cardinals beat us was by 1 point 10 years ago and we havent lost to them since.

  12. Oh yeah big mike. You tell em! You’ve got all those recent superbowl and playoff appearances from the Skins to back you up!
    Oh wait, what? Your team hasn’t made the post season in 2 years? and hasn’t won a playoff game in 5? Then yeah, you have every right to mock a guy on a team that’s won its division 2 straight years and made a superbowl.
    And I hate the cardinals.

  13. BigMike…I wouldn’t throw stones about the Cardinals getting worse! Might want to look at those Skins closer before you beat your chest

  14. Redskins will continue to stink this year BigMike, book it. No line is going to get Mcnabb hurt quick.

  15. Says the redskins fan……….
    The Skins are 4th in the NFC East, I’m not even a Cardinal fan, but I think they’ll make the postseason this year strictly on division. Skins have a three year window to be competitive until McNabb retires and they go back to normal.

  16. Clinton Portis is a dude that is constantly throwing parties, win or lose.
    He love the white women.

  17. lol at people saying “that was only under Zorn”. Actually that’s been the entire Snyder regime.

  18. you mean throwing money at something in washington dc doesn’t work? this country!

  19. bigmike..the truth hurts bro. storyline with this loser org and reason they have not won anything in 30 yrs. LMFAO>

  20. The only thing Snyder has to offer is money. He doesn’t offer stability, a true commitment to winning and a vision of the future that changes every 3-4 months.
    Is it any wonder that’s the culture there that it is?

  21. “I think a lot of guys on that team, winning don’t mean anything. I think partying and getting paid is a big part of a lot of guys on that team,” Dockett said.”
    Larry Johnson is a PRIME example of this. He fits like a glove in the Redskins team culture then.

  22. Clinton Portis has more costumes than Cher…
    A clown on and off the field…
    Shanrat got rid of him once already…

  23. Sounds like the Chargers…same group of dudes out partying all week, can’t wait to fly home from road games on Sunday to party on Sunday night…win or lose.

  24. Dockett speaks the truth, this team has been poisoned for the past decade by that meddling turd Snyder, there simply weren’t enough good eggs like London Fletcher and Andre Carter to weed out the bad.
    Shanahan and Allen are fixing all that, you wont see the same lackluster effort out of the 2010 skins that you did in 09, guys who aren’t putting it on the line will be benched and eventually removed from the organization. How many big contracts did the Redskins give out this offseason?

  25. skins hater here – dockett is right. the deadskins will NEVER be successful with midget-snyder as the owner. is portis even in the league anymore? actually, who cares, deadskins and their players are worthless.

  26. Shannahan WILL change all that b/s in Washington & get rid of the DEAD WEIGHT, like Portis & Haynesworth!!!

  27. i heard this interview live and i must say dockett has his stuff together when it comes to approaching his job and job atmosphere. players around the league know when something is going on in another team’s locker room, and he merely was saying that he couldn’t work for an organization, not coach, that allows those things to happen. being home and playing for the redskins would be his dream, under the right circumstances, but clearly a lot would have to change for that to happen for next season.

  28. Dockett is a joke! The Cardinals are a joke! Take away the last 2 years w/ Kurt Warner as there QB…what team couldn’t win that division when you play the Seahawks, Rams, and 49ers twice a year. 4 winnings seasons in the last 26 years…sounds like a great organization!

  29. Big Mike, can you pass me my blunt back, your talking nonsense about the worse franchise in the NFL. The Raiders love that your team is around, so they can’t be called the worst.

  30. Darnell also said yesterday that if you paid him that much money he’ll play his ass off for you, wherever he lines up. If you are as good as the money they gave you, if you are the best DT in the NFL, then you can do what you do no matter where you line up. He said he could line up as MLB and somehow find a way to make a play. He said he was currently the 2nd best DT in the league (behind Haynesworthless) and that it wont be hard becoming #1 this year.
    Haynesworthless is a sorry POS. 3-4, 4-3, 3 technique, 0 technique, 7 technique… who cares. None of that matters. If you’re a professional, you get paid & you play hard. Period.

  31. boysroll says:
    bigmike..the truth hurts bro. storyline with this loser org and reason they have not won anything in 30 yrs. LMFAO>
    Dude where have you been for the last 30 years… 3 Super Bowl wins in the last 27 years….put the blunt down!

  32. Dan Snyder just doesn’t quite understand the Steinbrenner model he’s trying to emulate. If you’re gonna throw that much money out, you gotta win SOMETIME!
    I’ll put it this way, it absolutely beats the crap out of me for the Cowboys to lose to the Giants or Eagles, but nothing just flat EMBARRASSES me more, then when the Cowboys lose to the Redskins.

  33. @boys roll
    you have no credibility. If you think it’s been thirty years since the skins won a title, then you would think it’s been 26 since your cowgirls won one. Of course, being from Texas, I don’t expect education to be your strong suit anyways.

  34. The NFC West is a joke. The Cardinals didn’t win the division once when they were in the NFC East. The year they went to the superbowl, they went 1-3 vs the NFC east and had to take the Cowboys to overtime to get that one win.

  35. Boysroll- You sound like a complete jacka$$! This coming from a guy who his favorite teams starting QB tries to be on the PGA tour every year. An owner who not only gets drunk and makes headlines for speaking profanity talking smack in a bar. A team who also goes out and throws money at players and has players not showing for OTAs. A team who hasn’t won anything in a really long time as well. You dont have room to talk about an organization.

    ………………………………………
    Lately your right about being better than Wash. But I wouldn’t say a team with Leinert is going to win more than a team with Mcnabb,Arizona will take a steep slide Kurt Warner was freaking good and will be missed ,and Wash. D is alot better than that of AZ… I think Allen and Shanahan will get that culture changed ,I live in the DC area and they are already noticing less Synder ,so that can only be good..

  37. Let’s not get carried away here. LaVar had Docket on because he had some choice words to say about Haynesworth being a giant turd. I’m guessing that Portis & LaVar’s recent beef over who got paid more, and who was more popular when Portis arrived in D.C., prompted Docket to stick up for his buddy by trashing Portis on the radio. Portis has always been a knucklehead (channeling Barkley), but the guy has sacrificed his body for the Skins up until last year when people stopped being horny for zorny. Docket is a beast and obviously a much better human being than Haynesworth. If I were a Cards fan I would be much more worried about Docket asking his twitter followers if they’d like to see him in a Skins uni, while he’s still playing for AZ. And yes the Skins have been of no consequence lately, but I don’t think Cardinal fans really want to talk about team history.

  38. @ magic
    Umm what is your team? Romo didn’t try to qualify for the Open this year, I am not sure of who you are talking about not showing up for OTS’s with the exception of crybaby Cratyon and I am not sure where this money you are referring to that is being thrown at players is either. I mean Roy Williams I guess but it still proves your utter FAIL at trying to bash someone else. And the Cowboys won the east 2 of the last 3 years and FINALLY won a playoff game last season. Get your facts right chief.

  39. Wow!!! Redskins fans are FUNNY everyhting that was wrong is now fixed come on man. I live in the area and see this bull first hand, the clubs the bars and the streets its all about money with these losers……HOW BOUT DEMCOWBOYS!!!!

  40. PURPLESTEEZ… Sorry ma’am. Didn’t mean to hurt your feewings. Get a life loser… maybe move out to L.A. :)~ BWAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Buh-bye QUEENS!

  41. cat aint got my tongue..not even a little bit.
    fact is the cards lost boldin and warner on offense and lose Rolle, Dansby and Berry on defense. they arent moving up and with Leinart leading them they are even more screwed.
    Dockett is going to want the same money as Haynesworthless but when he doesnt get it he will be bitter and bolt.
    He is right about Haynesworthless of course but when he starts lashing out at the whole organization and Portis it just shows what a little bitch he is. Worry about your own QB who spends more time with the clipboard than the football, your own RB who spends more time hurt than carrying the rock.

  42. and trying to act like the Cards are better because they win the NFC West is a joke in itself. We play in the NFC Beast and consistenly send 2 to 3 teams to the playoffs every year.
    how bout dem cowboys? How bout 1 playoff win in 15 years!! how about going 13-3 and getting bounced first round!!

  43. Yeah yeah yeah and if ya aunt had balls she’s be ya uncle. Oh dag, She is ya uncle Landover_Eddie! Move to Arlington, TX so you can put them lips 1/4 inch from Jerry Jones plastic surgery butt. Redskins fan since 1961. Oh by the way Darnell how many championship rings you wearing G? Lemme see them NFL Championship Rings?

  44. Too many options. I’ll just post my best two:
    1) “Dockett says publicly what players and teammates surely say behind closed doors. That’s why we enjoy listening.”
    I think you meant:
    Dockett does publicly what players and teammates surely do behind closed doors. That’s why we enjoy watching him shower.
    2) He could never be a redskin, but he show some skin.

  45. No need to move to tx, Fed ex field is the cowboys second home….whats a playoff win if you dont win the superbowl/ How many wins has the skins had in the past 15 years?

  46. cardinal are getting worse???? what are you on??? im a steeler fan and i know they were in the super bowl 2 years ago and where in the playoffs last year. What have the skins done in ohhhh… 10 years? 15?

  47. Landover_Eddie- You are a typical bandwagon fan who sits at home to watch games. If you came out you would get beaten cheering for the Cowboys.

  48. I heard the entire interview and Dockett was trashing the Skins culture for the last few years, he did mention with Mike Shanahan at the helm the team is on the right track and he said that he was sure coach Shanahan wouldn’t straighten out this dysfunctional behavior. He also said that he would be open to playing for the Skins and being that leader the team has been lacking. If I were a Cards fan I would be pushing AZ to sign this guy to a long term contract because he is a BEAST and he has the right attitude, he just wants to win and it’s definitely a guy I’d love to see on the team as a Skins fan!

    Quick Question:
    How did the Cards do against the NFC east in the NFC championship game in 08?
    Oh and how about the giants last year?
    The Cards organization has really turned the corner over the last three – four years.
    Wait tell Beanie Wells starts running over everyone this year. Dallas on Christmas night = another nfc west win over the nfc east.

    We may not have been in the playoffs for 2 years but the Redskins always kick the Cardinals @ss!

  53. Amen..I live in the DC area and have seen Portis at the club weekly. Only problem is I dont play football anymore and he does..lol..The guy clubs more than a sophmore in college. I have seen him 2 days before a game getting wasted and I have seen him the day of an a**kicking in the club. I just shake my head cause it just lets me know that the team culture will never allow the redskins to catch up to my NFC East Champs, the cowboys

  54. @MagicMan07
    You have no idea what you’re talking about. I go to bars all the time to watch the Cowboys and there are always plenty of Cowboys fans in the Northern VA/DC/MD area. You see, because of the high population of military personnel in the area, there are people from all over the country living here. Many of those fans are Cowboys fans.
    Besides Redskins fans are always hyped at the beginning of the day but by the time the Redskins are done playing they have their sad faces on.

  55. @ magic
    Yes retard thats what I said, not this year as in he dropped out you idiot. But again, I owned you on everything else you talked about. Turd.

  56. Big mike, the redskins will be in the cellar again this year. Kevin Kolb will lead my eagles to more wins this year than donovan and your sorry redskins. Please feel free to reply and hate on Kevin Kolb with the opiniated facts that can’t be proved.

  57. Every time someone bashes the Skins I hear fan’s say we have a new regime and to give it time. I cant remember, are we on regime 6 or 7 since Snyder bought the team?

  58. I can second Doomsdays claim as to how many Cowboys fans live in the DC are, being one of them. They are everywhere, taking over because 95% of Redskin fans only care when the team wins.

    just by saying the name kevin kolb and lead in the same sentence you have proven 2 things. 1, you are mentally challenged and 2, you are from Philthy. well maybe thats just one thing since they are tied in together.
    you’ve lost the heart and soul of your offense in McNabb and Westbrook and now the “leaders” you have are people like Jackson who talk too much and do dumb things like drop the ball before going in the end zone.

    =================================
    boysroll is THE BIGGEST F@GGOT douchebag on this board.
    Whenever there’s a Skins post the little pussy takes off from his full time job servicing the gloryhole at Cowboys Stadium with his little pussy LMAOs and LOLs.
    You can tell from his screen name he’s a pedophile and usually his posts abouts Skins also refer to his obsession with uncircumcized penis’. I guess the competition from the Dez’s Crack Ho momma must be getting fierce in the Land of Steers and Queers.

  61. Dockett is a piece os crap, and one of the dirtiest players in the league.
    He bitches about drinking when this punk was bragging in the lockerroom about breaking a players leg in a pileup one time in college. Thats the same game where he twice tried to step on Rex Grossman’s hand after a play was over.
    STFU Darnell

  62. “you didnt get signed by the skins and you never will be. stay in AZ where your team is steadily getting worse punk.”
    As opposed to what, going to the Redskins where it’s the same old suckage year after year?

  63. “Okay, Darnell, nice job pointing out the flaws of the Zorn administration. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new regime and a new mindset.”
    Broken record. You could have said and probably would have said:
    “Okay, Darnell, nice job pointing out the flaws of the Gibbs administration. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new regime and a new mindset.”
    “Okay, Darnell, nice job pointing out the flaws of the Spurrier administration. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new regime and a new mindset.”
    “Okay, Darnell, nice job pointing out the flaws of the Schottenheimer administration. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new regime and a new mindset.”
    “Okay, Darnell, nice job pointing out the flaws of the Turner administration. If you haven’t noticed, there’s a new regime and a new mindset.”
    Fact is, it’s the Snyder administration, and nothing has really changed since he bought the team over a decade ago.

  64. “Boysroll- You sound like a complete jacka$$! This coming from a guy who his favorite teams starting QB tries to be on the PGA tour every year.”
    So what? Is it a crime to be good at two sports?
    ” An owner who not only gets drunk and makes headlines for speaking profanity talking smack in a bar.”
    Better than an owner that can’t run a team to save his ass.
    “A team who also goes out and throws money at players and has players not showing for OTAs.”
    Yeah what, a 4th string WR making a couple mil a year? Compared to Haynesworth?
    “A team who hasn’t won anything in a really long time as well.”
    They’ve won three Super Bowls since the Deadskins last sniffed one.
    ” You dont have room to talk about an organization.”
    Yes he does. The Redskins obviously suck and are one of the worst teams in the league. The Cowboys do not suck and are one of the best teams in the league.

  65. “Wait tell Beanie Wells starts running over everyone this year. Dallas on Christmas night = another nfc west win over the nfc east.”
    LOL @ an NFCW fan talking crap about the NFCE. You realize that the NFCW was 1-3 against NFCE teams last year, right?

  66. @Big Mike
    First off, I’m trying to understand how you are saying that Kevin Kolb can’t lead when he only started 2 games. I can actually say that he will be a leader because he has a passion that McNabb never had and will never have and he is not afraid to get in players faces when they make mistakes. That’s a leader. The Redskins will go no where under McNabb with the offensive line there. When was the Redskins last division championship by the way?

    everything changed last January

  69. Darnell Docket?? You make millions of dollars but another MAN got you to take a naked shower on the internet for $1000 USD.
    I wouldn’t want YOU in my locker room. You’ve won nothing BTW.

  70. Awesome!
    However, you may want to curtail all of that and keep tabs on your own party boy… Matty Leinart??
    meh, doesn’t matter… the cards are about to go back to irrelevancy.
    Darnell Dockett might be praying he get traded to the Redskins are its all said and done in 2010.

  71. starts from the top..synder should not be in control of a team. hopefully shannahan will change that..if not him..then who? tuna?

  72. He may have been right. BEEN. With Shanahan in now, there will not be that culture anymore. Finally real leadership. And who is Darnell Dockett?

  73. LOL! Talk about the laughing stock of the league. I’d rather be a Ram or Lions fan anyday than root for the Washington Foreskins!! LOSERS!

  74. a Vikes fan talking bad about the Skins? Now I have seen it all. Your team has such low loyalty that you bring in the QB that has punked you the past decade plus. Your RB fumbles like his last name was Barber, you have another QB who had to have a custome made playbook wristband that looks like a forearm pad.
    and vox, keep your day job D-bag. you are one step above boysTroll
