Former NFL running back Clinton Portis made the media rounds on Tuesday, either to get his name in circulation for a late-season signing or to lay the foundation for a post-football media career.
After spending most of the day at ESPN, Portis made the trip from Bristol, Connecticut to Stamford for an on-set visit with Russ Thaler of NBC SportsTalk.
Somewhat surprisingly, Portis picked the Eagles to continue their late-season push to the playoffs and win the NFC East.
Crazy as it sounds, the Eagles need only to win their final two games (at Cowboys, vs. Redskins), see the Giants lose to the Jets on Christmas Eve and then the Giants beat the Cowboys on New Year’s Day.
So Portis may be right. The other playoff teams in the NFC will hope he’s wrong, because the Eagles could end up being the toughest out in the entire field.
