Well let me clarify, I will miss Southeast Jerome, but yes thats about it. Portis took LiL Danny to the cleaners and Portis's tenure in DC has been average at best to this point (except for his blitz pick up skills). I will not miss him constantly tripping over his own feet and falling to the ground prior to getting hit while he ran the ball. I will also not miss his "The U" version of the english language.

But I will say the guy could and would lay the F---ing wood when someone tried to blitz. As an old High School and College O-linemen I appreciated his intelligence and all-out neck breaking effort in that department. There aren't to many #1 RB's that would commit their bodies to that kind of punishment, he was special in that regard.
