Portis definitely showed improvement over past games this year but he still looked really slow to me in comparison to Torain. Not to mention, it seems like Portis has to leave the game after every other play because of some sort of injury. It was refreshing watching Torain...just hope he can keep it up.

I'll believe that Portis's "rhythm" makes a difference when I see the Skins do the same thing against a 3-4 with a stud NT. Against a 4-3, Rabach is involved in double teams and plays well. But against a 3-4 he is usually one-on-one and the running game is successful only on stretch plays and outside the tackles. I hope the Skins can do it, but currently I still don't see much success by the Skins on short yardage or goal-line when the middle of the OLine needs to move the pile.

Portis, must take care of himself, injuries are not to be taken lightly, and it seems that Torain can step in and cover for CP - either way you look at it, the Redskins are slowly getting it together - stand by my team - GO SKINS!!

REDSKINS just finding a way to win you can see the confidence growing. Great job I still think Defense needs work in the secondary because there was still a lot of open recievers kolb just didnt look down field always going for the safe throw. HAIL REDSKINS!!
