That's what this bad boy will be bringing. Amazement. Well Clinton Portis' coach is a genius, and not to mention the Plax Picketers are at full force, so let's dive right in on this and bring you today's NFL news recap.
Clinton Portis, RB, Redskins
Clinton Portis unloaded on head coach Jim Zorn Tuesday on a radio appearance, sarcastically calling Zorn a "genius."
This is what happens when players have more power with ownership than coaches. "We got a genius for a head coach, I don't know, I'm sure he on top of things. He's got everything figured out," Portis said, clearly unhappy about his lack of touches last week.
"If you've got a problem with me not practicing and can't do it that way, maybe you feel like you need to sever ties, split ties with me? Split ties with me. But don't sit here and throw me out like I don't pay attention, like I don't know what's going on, like I'm making mistakes, I'm the problem" Expect Portis to be very active against the Bengals, despite the comments.
Well, seems as if "so-called" Albert Einstein still lost the game on Sunday, so Portis may want to pull his genius tag down to lesser, more monotone one. This folks cannot be good, even if Portis does apologize, this doesn't help his rep at all. Looks like it didn't take too long for the DeAngelo Hall virus to catch on.
The NFL Players Association filed a grievance Tuesday challenging Plaxico Burress' fine and suspension by the Giants.
Yipee. When in doubt, call in the NFLPA, they'll dig you out of any problem. Sadly for Plaxico, this digs him pretty deep. If and when he does resurface, a team will take a chance on him, but until then, it looks like dark days for Mr. Burress. However, if there is a rise in drive by stabbings, we know who to pin the blame on.
Jalen Parmele, RB, Ravens
The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports the Ravens have signed RB Jalen Parmele from the Dolphins practice squad.
