Portis to get Pulled at Goalline?

Recommended Posts

I was suprised to read on another site, that the Portis may lose goalline and short yardage carries this year.

 

In checking into it, on the Redskins website, I found an interview with Nehemiah Broughton. "They talk of me being a short yardage back, but I still want to try to push to be a starter someday in the near future," Broughton said.

 

And in another piece, the RB coach was indicating how terrible they were in short yardage and goalline situations last year, and how they were going to try some different things this year.

 

Redskin fans know anything more on this?

I hope the don't "punish" Portis this year because his Oline sucked last year. The Washington oline looked really good against the Steelers last week, and Portis was able to score TDs while in Denver.

Too soon to tell. Broughton is a beast though. I think they will give Portis every opportunity to everything and then reassess. He had 350 carries last year and Gibbs has said he will get as many this year.
