I realize Porter is a C, and his line has some chemistry, but it flies in the face of anything performance based, imo.
Watching Porter though, I'm convinced that much of the decision to keep him playing is just for the steadying effect on his linemates, both rookies. I've noticed him a few times out there directing traffic, communicating, being vocal. We don't have a lot of guys that I've noticed doing that, and we definitely don't have many centers to work in and out of the line-up.
