    I prefer it this way. Personally, I want to see more of Quinton Gathner to see if he can play a role on this team in 2010. I have been impressed thus far.

    The team is playing good right now. Chances are Clinton would have upset things if he came back. Feel is and has been a cancer in the locker room.

    He is talking to the media like his career might be over. That's a wicked concussion.

    Same. If he can prove himself this year I say trade Portis for some picks to build the line.

    I have been critical of his attitude and desire to play much of this season. I was calling for him to be placed on IR just yesterday. Now that it is a reality, I have to admit I am saddened a bit. He has given a lot for this team. If he could have just gone out and done his job without the drama.

    If his career is indeed over, I'd like to thank him for the 4 great years he had for us.

    Who knows, maybe this will humble him some and he comes out with something to prove next season. This break could really be all he needs to get back into playing condition. Realizing your own mortality can really humble egos like his. Trust me I know.

    In remembrance, I'm sure everyone remembers Portis' first carry as a Redskin:

    If that's the case then perhaps he has a softer head than most. I've seen guys come back and play a couple weeks later after harder hits. Not downplaying his circumstance, because all concussions are potentially serious, but since it's Clinton, I can't help but think he might be playing this up a little bit so he can be like the phoenix rising from the ashes next year.

    OK, maybe his 1200 yard season wasn't great, but he was at least VERY solid!

    I think we can all agree he was solid. For me it was just the fact that he brought too much high maintenance, drama queen stuff with him

    It's been nice knowing you Portis.

    He had a few great seasons and a some great games, but I won't be too sad to see him go.

    But he did have some great seasons.

    My response was tongue-in-cheek (probably should've used an emoticon), since it was an odd way to phrase it. It's like thanking your spouse for 20 great years together when you've been married 25.
